dash is coming along nicely, changed my mind around a thousand times. Wasn't sure to go back original or custom.

 

the look will be a pull out 6" touch screen DAB radio in the centre, a Land Rover discovery switch panel in green where the glove box was, and the clock surround will be green with chrome inserts

really liking the stuff from R-TECH, the Quality seems really good and a three year warranty is nice too lol

todays challenge was stripping the Mini down enough to be able to pick it up and put it into the tent.

first thing was to drain the fluids

bet you can't guess which is coolant and which is oil lol

 

 

 

second I removed the inlet side of things and a couple of parts surrounding the engine and the radiator

then made some prep work on dropping the full engine and front subframe

and this soon followed, not sure it worked as well as I had hoped lol

then it was just the small task of picking the Mini/engine up and moving them ( 100% easier said than done )
