This is a mix of cleaned old pipes and new stuff too

The job is to recreate the piping routes going to the dash vents

Old pictures: oh god  :X

I have to go from a 4'' diameter tube to a 3.5'' diameter to go in the front fan. Originally there was some sort of a joining steel bracket to to this, but it's in dust now

Clipped on the face vents just for fun. Now the heating/ventilation system is complete!

Why does it have that under bonnet fan ? is there no room for the normal one on a LHD mini ?

 

My LHD MPI mini have a normal one but it's plastic, two speeds and does sit a bit weird, low down because ot the massive bar for the brakes that run along the bulkhead.

¯\_(ツ)_/¯

I don't know! Winter maybe? One upside I can think of is that it can blow fresh air form outside to the right side dash vent.

Where did you get that foam ring from? I couldn't find it so I had to make my own.

Somerford Mini tells to buy the same ring as the dash vent to bulkhead ones. It fits but needs a little stretching

Got my old battery back, it still holds charge well after being forgotten for 10 years (!?!?). Anyway, it will be good to test electrical stuff.
