I'm getting more excited every day. I deceided to sign up with an auto body class offered by the Ocean County Vocational Technical School (New Jersey). The class starts 09/12 and will last for the whole semester.

The Mini has been on blocks for the last month and with the experience from the class I will be able to start body repairs. I have to replace both sills and repair a number of other sections.

Thought I share this with you.

Good for you. Hope it goes well for you. The Mini is rather a complex bodyshell, so the training will help a lot.

Update I,

Had my first class last Wednesday and as I walked into the shop, an early model MGB was sitting right in the middle of it. I then knew I had chosen a good class.

This first night we practiced with a dolly and hammer to undo dents in the sheet metal.
