Estate Rebuild

Seth has been busy with his 1968 Hillman Minx Estate engine rebuilt (additional of ally-head, dual carbs & more...) and I encourage you to visit his thread at RetroRides.
His meticulousness and craftsmanship is all so inspiring to me, adding that his workshop/backyard/kitchen-table are very small adds a lot of charm to this whole project. I absolutely love his Minx and wish him the Best of Luck during this rebuilt!
