It was lovely to see this car I'm person today. I remember reading this thread a few months ago and never realised you were local. Absolutely spotless. I would have said hello but I have no idea who you are!

We got there and back in our three car convoy without any issues with the Mini! Result 👍🏼

All three Minis looking good 😎

#whatsinmyboot?! 😆 Is it a flask?

Rossul.burn - Longtimenomini will talk to anyone about cars!!! We were beside our Minis most of the day so you should have said hello. I was talking to people about my Snowberry White City, telling people the story about this estate, good banter.

Glad we managed to get the Clubby estate ready for the show 👍🏼

I did get a picture of the clubman, albeit a poor shot.

They all contributed to reigniting my motivation to get my sidewalk all sorted

Squealing / squeaking dash ... had suspicion was Speedo cable ... it was

Had to remove dash and binnacle to get to Speedo cable , removed cable ( in process snapping connector) and sprayed wd40 down cable innards

Rebuilt and ... indicators didn’t work !!!

Removed dash and binnacle again .... messed around with wires and got indicators working again

Rebuilt again .... test spin and all good no noise

Had a play around with where I’m gonna mount solenoids for Nos

Are you using a clutch master cylinder on the brakes?

Original brake cylinder with remote servo , new clutch cylinder


Started engine detailing ...

Shortening pipes
Moving cables and pipes ( vacuum pipe on order)
New ht leads

Still lots to do , but looking better already

You're right, that does look like a clutch master cylinder to me.

It is. If it were a brake master the filler would be towards the back and the outlet towards the front - a mirror of the clutch cylinder.

Clubman inner wings are different, probably why it looks different

Eagle eye viewers will spot I kept seatbelt in , this way I can use either and if I need to fold rear seat down I can move harness and use seatbelt.... I is clever that way !
