ill get some photos next time i work on it.

Whilst the tank was out, I thought I might aswell get on with the debumpering ive been meaning to do for years.

I thought it would look funny having a debumberd clubman front.
and a rear curvy mini bumper, so ive chopped it off and welded it up.

Hey chaps, bit of an update.

got the coolant plumbed in,

Posted Image

ive got one heater pipe going to the cylinder head, and the other going to the thermostat housing.

the main pipe from the header tank goes to the take off in the pipe from the thermostat.

and with a T peice from the top of the header tank one pipe goes to the inlet, and the other goes to the rad. Does all that sound about right?

another problem i have found is the little clearance with a master, ive been thinking of two things, one tilt the master back a few degrees to clear the inlet a tad more. or grind the corner of the master back?

Posted Image

it does clear it but its less than a mm, and even though my engine is nearly solid i think it will still hit it under hard acceleration.

I know this may be frowned upon but can i remove some of the material circled below?
Posted Image

Also does anyone have any pictures of their mini cable clutch pedals and where/how they locate on the bulkhead?
