You beat me to it! I also have a 1979 Mini hobby car tucked away in the garage and had plans to do the same thing!
Oh well, he who hesitates! Great Pic.
(Incidentally, I just had to get my Mini re-appraised when I changed insurance companies. I was amazed when it came in a $15k !!! In reality, I would guess I could get little more than half that for it of I sold it!)
