I've stopped sulking now after not making the IMM with the GT, so had an hour in the garage. Started fitting the headlining, going to leave that to stretch for a few days8nIfOYk.jpg

Fitted the gear change thingy me bob, and put my number 3 pool ball gear knob on, it is my 3rd mini

And started putting the loom back in, pain in the arse that was

We'll get the loom tidied up and clipped up next time, need to do that before we drop the engine in. The kids are back in school next week so there will be more garage time for Jimmy and R Kid  :D

Had a few hours on the GT yesterday. I rubbed down the sunroof surround to bare metal because the paint was bubbling up all over, gave it a prime then a few thin coats of black, just in time for it to start raining

Quite pleased how it came out

 

Then I got the rear cards from the loft and gave them a bit of a scrub, a lovely shade of poo

I also put the rear carpet in, bit miffed I had to cut the holes for the  seatbelt bolts and seat brackets, but at least I never had to cut the carpet round the ashtray, I took that out after I knelt on it one too many times welding the boot floor in

 

Still no engine in, maybe next time
