The delightful Mini Seven 'Zippy' came into CMC in October 2019 for a partial sympathetic restoration. We can now give you an update on its progress! 'Zippy' has now been through our panel shop, we have tried to keep the car as original as possible. Our skilled technicians have managed to retain the original doors, roof panel, and rear and front bulkheads. Subsequently, due to extensive rot, we have had to put in all-new front panels, floor panels, 'A' posts, rear lower panels, rear quarters, and sills.
The car then passed through our paint shop where it was painted in 'Solar Red' including the original dashboard. Whilst there we have also refurbished the wheels. 'Zippy's' engine and gearbox have been sympathetically stripped down and rebuilt and are now in the car.
We are looking forward to seeing 'Zippy's' restoration complete and can not wait to see it back on the road! Please stay tuned for updates on this car and many others we have on-site here at CMC.
We are currently refitting all mechanical ancillary items such as the exhaust system, bumpers, and indicators.
