Last bit of welding done, next to get the old paint off the roof, then put the drip rails back on, and then start some block sanding.

just to refresh, l have a 1963 AUSTIN countryman, (no wood) with a f/g flip front that is well engineered

It is powered by a 1380cc engine with a low end final drive, turning 4000 rpm's @ 70 mph on the highway but great off the starting Mark

Built by Tim Bosse of Ohio as an auto cross car, great welding with a hidden fuel cell,running 10 inch Yoka's A 008 on reproduction new steel 9 hole steel rims

Terrific sound deadner in the roof with a Union Jack headerlining and of course a full length Union Jack on the roof- Also has the one piece f/g rear door, (all the rage in the seventies)

Sold it once, got it back on a trade in, hope to keep it for my funeral procession-

Getting closer, got the rear door ledge fixed, now to start work on the rear doors, then onto some sanding. I'm looking at the new fiat colors greenish grey and BMC color of porcelain green.  Something different than grey or OEW.

Hi Grant,  I'm new to the forum as well, I'm restoring a wagon myself, it's a 68 and will be powered by a Swiftune S/C 1310.

I'm limited to certain colors since I am using the original interior of the car, Red. I dont like red/red , and I am leaning toward tweed grey, with the OEW top. At least for now!

ElPaso Beige

Hi Ron,

Personally I think that colour would look great with the wood. I am thinking colours also for my project Woody and beige crossed my mind at one point. It's such a hard thing choosing colour, I've decided on green but now there are so many hues of green I'm still not decided. Anyway I think that color would look very classy.

Ron

You could always go back to original Ron, but then that can take the fun out of owning a Mini. Greens are very classy on a woody, the problem is that a lot of other people think so too. If I were to choose the coloro green I would go with something in a different company like Jaguar BRgreen or something of that nature.

Nice work Mac! She's gonna be a beauty when she's all done. I'd go with one color choice for a Woodie. 'Surf Blue' looks extra nice with the ash wood trim. I'm just sayin. This isn't my Wagon, but it is my favorite screensaver!!!

Get one of the computer guys on here to photoshop it onto a wagon for you.

dartfork, it might be a good idea to start a new thread for your Countryman question rather than mixing it in with many pages on the round nose cars.
