Mini un-SORN'd just in time for the 30th anniversary of the Rover Cooper - July 1990! Mine was built in December 1990.
The mini is off for it's checks and MOT at Southam Mini centre... hopefully I have not F*#ked it up too much

I'm getting really hacked off with shill bidders on ebay. 4 items in the last week I have been offered second chance within less than a day of the auction ending. Tonight I received a second chance offer within a minute of an auction ending. Despite usually wanting the item I won't buy them as I refuse to pay an artificially inflated price.
mercenary62ebay is fekin ******* nowadays

I've committed a sin, and bought a BINI as a daily driver.
Anthony30Yeah. I like the supercharger noise. just done the coil pack plugs, ht leads,clutch/flywheel, just waiting for my radiator to turn up. The supercharger isn't far off either. :(

mab01ukR53 is fast becoming a future classic, great fun to drive, worth getting a good one to keep.

Anthony30Hopefully. I'm also getting the supercharger looked at, gears upgraded, new seals, oil changed ect in a few weeks. Want to try and keep it until the thirty is restored. I like it, and can't be bothered with the hassle of buying/selling again.

Can't believe it's been 5 years since I've owned a Mini! Looking at my third one tomorrow, fingers crossed it's as good as it looks!
cam timing I am having difficulty finding the best degree of cam advance for my MD266 in my heavily modded 998 as far as I can tell 3degrees is or was recommended by Kent cams but they did not mention for 1275/998etc

You know you have a problem when you buy your third mini and neither of your other two are working.
M J W JNo. Its not even a complete car, just a rolling shell. It will be a while before I get to it but I have a plan
