he preferred the ribbed one
Ha ha, Yer I prefer ribbed too, Might have to get a chrome one off ebay at some point.
Think I have found a F18WR gearbox so that should be pretty good. Welded some new rear mount brackets on the subframe. Also cleaned and painted up the suspension, just have to put new bushes/bearings in now. Also started cleaning the engine and drilling out the broken exhaust studs, may have to heli-coil them because they wouldn't come out with easy-outs. Also got a new brake master cylinder to remove the servo and got new engine mounts. Plan to do a lot more soon as I will have more time, been really busy recently.
I broke the gearbox on my A-series a couple of weeks ago so the mini is off the rod till I get the conversion done. Had to get another car, within 2 hours I became the proud owner of a BMW 316i with 11 months MOT & 3 months TAX, £350!! Just has a blowing exhaust which i welded up and now it's fine! Can't wait to get the mini back on the road though!
