Ey guys, i'm Matt, i'm restoring a mini and because of this my parents believe i have what it takes to fix their cars when something goes wrong so i thought joining a forum would be a good move in order to get advice and parts.

Edit: my dad has a white 99 camry n my mum has a 04 silver camry ateva

nice mini project buddy and welcome to the club, are you doing a resto on the mini or are you planning on modding???

i ask because the amount of 4EFTE engines i have sold for power hungry mini enthusiasts is crazy :lol:

Thanks for the complIments, with the mini i'm going to keep it stockish because it is a fairly rare mini. It is a mini sunshine, it was basicly a standard mini with a few extras like a factory sunroof, pinstripes, tinted windows, wheel flares, a tacho and sports wheels. Leyland ony got around to making 360 before they went ***** up. Having a rare car can be good and bad. The good bits: everyone says ey is that a real sunshine and it is worth more. The bad: i cant mod it because i will cop heaps by all the mini people and they will claim i'm killing a classic and parts specific to the model are impossible to find eg, mine was mssing the sunroof glass :S

When i got the car it came with a 1275 motor from a cooper s, i'm going to give it a k&n or ramflo air filter, i'm also going to put some disc brakes up front and proberly leave it at that. If i want more power later on i could put some bigger carbies of a bigger exhaus
