This bloke  http://www.cotswoldclassiccarrestorations.co.uk/  ; came and gave us a talk a few years back. He was just a one man band at the time, his website is a bit over the top for what he is/was.

We had a look around his workshop and his work looked pretty good. One good thing about him was the way he wanted to maintain contact with his customer constantly so you know exacty what you are getting to what standard and how much it will cost.

Thanks Rob,its the S so I want to use a Mini person as they should know the Mini insideout,were as a classic restoration company may not.

I went over and had a look at his workmanship and it was well up to standard.Had a talk and he seems to be on the same wave-length.He's coming over to see the car this week to give me his oppinion on it.

Only bad point he didn't offer a tea!

I really want to do it myself but time is my limitation.
