riley Silver Dawn

Post  minicheckers on Sat Jan 21, 2012 8:30 pm

Hi there,
my name is Jeroen and i'm from Belgium
i recently purchased this elf and i just started with taking it appart.
been bussy with mini's for about 4 years now and i have had a few of them.
For the moment i own a 1000cc from 88 as a daily driver, a red mini pickup, a clubman and a traveller in the making.

but now back to my riley again

this i how i bought it (pictures make it look a bit better then the shape he's in though Very Happy ) :









First thing i did, was taking out the engine, didn't noticed the different type of gearboxhousing though, so didn't went all that smooth, but managed to take it out after all Smile





Next thing i'll do, is remove the subframes, so i can start cutting and grinding away the rust, and start welding it all up again.
Realy looking forward to driving it Very Happy

found some time this weekend to take the subframes from underneath the riley.
i was a bit afraid that they would come loose that easely with the hydrosuspension hoses and all, but it went reather well.







these seats are mostlikely for the bin :p



i hope to get everything else of next weekend so i can start cutting welding and grinding on the shell Smile

I reckon you'll be able to save the frames of the seats and reupholster? Or are they rusted through?
