My MK2 Rebuild Project

Post  Hamster on Wed May 13, 2015 2:22 pm

Hi, everyone.

I bought this MK2 Scamp off Ebay a couple of weeks ago. It came with loads of parts, a few of which I have sold already to make some money back.

Overall it is in good condition but it does need a little bit of welding underneath as a length of box section is rotten.




I have begun stripping it down and getting the frame back to bare metal ready for some paint.






All of the external panels have been removed along with the subframe and suspension components. It's looking a bit sorry for itself at the moment especially since these photos were taken as even more parts have been stripped from it.

The plan is to use the parts from my Mini which includes a 1310 engine, new suspension components, electrics and brakes.

Thanks for looking. More to come.

Another being rebuilt, I missed this. 
There are a few places around that still stock imperial size steel tube if you want some. I can't remember the name of the company at the moment but will look it up if you want. I had to buy a lot to do mine !

If you can look them up, that would be great. I've had a look online and found a few suppliers which sell 1" & 2" box section.

Hi, this is the place I got mine from http://www.hublebas.co.uk/about/about-us.aspx They have a branch near you. I can't remember if there was a minimum quantity order now but they might only have been for delivery. I picked them as it was the best deal for the quantity I wanted. There are others and if you only need a short length they might be better. I will look through my list of links.

Quick Update

I have finished stripped the car down. All of the floor pieces have been removed to gain access to the bits of box section which are rotten. I've cut most of the rot out, ready for new metal to be welded in.

Pics to follow.

I stripped the Scamp down to the frame ready for welding. There was a bit more rust than I was expecting which is always the case with old cars. Removing the rivets seemed to take forever but it's done now.





These next few pictures show the amount of welding which has been done to the car. A few bits which aren't pictured include the front of the car and a length of box section down the one side.









Overall it is progressing nicely, the next task is to paint the frame and then start putting the panels back on.
