Something I can do!

I may be new to proper detailing and since joining this site I have picked up quite a few tips already and discovered a plethora of cleaning products that I need in my garage. What I am not new to is making a car nice enough to keep clean.
This mini belongs to a friend and was destined to spend it's life locked up in a garage rotting away, until I stepped in and offered to restore it for the owner , it's one owner from new but unfortunately it has been bodged together by various inept garages. Anyway here are some photos of when it was dropped off, I will feed the photos over a period of time otherwise it will make a boring post

Looking forward to this one, they do seem to rot big time indeed.
Glad you removed the baby before the screen lol

Your baby's reaction in the second picture is about how I'd feel having to tackle this. All the best with the project.
