Managed over the weekend to get some time on the mini. I have started to take bits and pieces out of my minispares box and started to put things together again. Never really thought that this moment would actually happen. I typed up a to do list just to get the car back on it's wheels. Almost a full A4 page of tasks. Looked good when at the end of the day to have crossed a couple of things off that list.

I have a hole in the roof for a sunroof and I can't afford to get a new roof skin fitted. My mini came with a sunroof which is black. When I lived in the UK I had a Mini City E with a white sunroof which was the same size. Does anyone have access to a white one and secondly willing to post it to Australia? Below is the one that I have with my mini.

I'd been keen on that. Message me your address and I'll get a price on postage.

You'd need to PM supersam47.
To be honest what with 2nd hand sunroofs being more readily available & therefore relatively cheap in the UK it's probably not worth the effort for him, but you can but ask.

I've been having issues trying to log onto the site recently. But at the same time have not managed to accomplish much on the mini build. The last thing that I have done beside order more parts is have the bearings pressed into the hubs only to find out that the CV joints that I purchased from a non mini focused company are not drum brake mini CV joints but some that look very very similar. So back onto Minispares and a just over a week later I am now the proud owner of two new CV joints. In the mean time I assembled one front brake assembly. Next job is to finish the other side and then install the CV joints and put them off to the completed corner. Unfortunately there is not a lot of bits in the completed corner of my workshop.

I think you'd almost be better off buying a whole new roof skin and getting the whole thing replaced. Otherwise if you can find another used mini roof and cut the missing piece out of it so that it's the right curve

Have you every had one of those days where everything goes wrong. Well today I had some time to work on my FJ and the mini. I couldn’t get the oil filter of the motor in my FJ so I ended up taking the oil pump off the engine. Then it dropped oil everywhere. Then I made a start on soaking the rusty parts in the molasses mixture. Only to find out that after filling the plastic box with the molasses and water there was a small crack in the bottom and the 10l of fluid leaked all over my work shop. Then I cleaned that mess up and started stripping a rear radius arm only to hit my thumb three times when removing the hub. I called it quits after that.
I very much hope that you have better luck tomorrow.
