To anyone unfamiliar with this car,and wishes to find out how it evolved and progressed I refer you to the epic build thread.
 
https://www.mr2roc.org/forum/index.php?topic=57942.0

Briefly, it commenced as an unloved 'W' reg (PFL of course) with ~126k miles, bodywork rust -free but with dings + scratches ,had an engine rebuild, prior to commencing the unique Mini Cooper S Supercharger installation.

I bought the car circa Dec 2020 and since that time has had further time and money spent on it, which I will detail after posting a few piccies(now that I have recently learned 'how to' ).

Yep Stewart, but will probably still come in a stock variety. But sorely tempted to bring the wee beastie   ;D
