1978 Leyland Mini 998 LS

We had purchased this car about 4 years ago damaged on the left front guard. It is now in the the process of repairs and restoration. We are going to try and keep the originality of the classic 998LS. We have replaced the L/H/F guard & re-aligned the front panels. Rust from the bottom of the doors has just been cut out & plated. Besides the inner door rust the rest of the body has normal surface rust under seam moulds etc which will all be removed over all I think it's iin very good condition for its age. We will add more detail about this rebuild as it progresses.
