It's like they're in another country or something! ;DThe difficulty is finding someone who knows the peculiarities of Mini rust spots, like Dan does. You wouldn't think it would be that hard, but they can rust in some strange and difficult ways to fix! Dan knows all their secrets....Frankly, your best bet if you're going to own a classic anything is either to learn how to fix it yourself, or buy one that's already done by someone that knows what the heck they're doing - but of course, you'll pay for that. However, I think it's actually cheaper to buy one that's been done than to even DIY. Look at Stan's car - brand new from stem to stern, and sold for $19K - there's one that all you'd have to do is drive it and have fun with it. and you can't do one like that for $19K -
