Ram, your friends mini looks much .... cleaner than mine. Also very nice welding rig, I don't have a nice area to work like that yet.
Unfortunatly I have sold all the parts that I do not need including the engine, and both the front and rear subframes. If you want I think I could get you the contact info of the guy who bought them, he is in Rhode Island and has many minis.
My mini does not look normal anymore either.
I also quite love my Everlast MIG welder and wish I had bought one sooner.
