Mini Renovation Manual - 1986 to 2000 by Paul Hardiman

This practical manual provides expert advice on how to breathe new life into a used and perhaps tired example of this sought-after classic.

Mini Performance Manual by Tim Mundy
The "classic" Mini is a sixties icon that remained in production for 40 years. Unveiled to the press in August 1959, the Mini ignored many long-established design principles and bristled with innovative features. The car instantly won favor with tuners and modifiers, and today the Mini remains one of the most popular project cars with performance tuners. A thriving support structure of clubs, specialist magazines and parts suppliers ensures that the Mini will remain popular with tuning enthusiasts for many years to come.
