Havent managed to get to much done thais past week but have sourced a nice power steering colum wich will fit in the car realy easily, and have discoverd that the standard mini peddle box will not fit either so im gona put a race peddle box in. atleast it means by doing this a can make a nice driving position , and be able to park the car easily on some nice wide wheels . Will put some pics up of the power steering when it arives .

Just picked up the inlet from the fabricators , wich done a briliant job of the inlet , he even smothed out the inside so the air has no restrictions , also had him weld up the holes where the idle control valve should go , trial fited it and fits perfect and theirs about 15mm between the maniold and bulkhead , now just got to send it of to be powder coated to match the rocker cover,

I like I like alot

15mm is more than enough clearance, engine rocks about 5mm max even with tired mounts, good job on working out the angle to get it right >_<

I thought I was ok but seems not, swelling on my knee has gone down now after a couple of weeks but theres still pain there and seems there is something sticking out when I bend my knee which definitely was not there before and is alot different to my other knee and not normal! might be broken/chipped bone might be a blood clot >_< docs not sure either so need to get it checked out properly, problem is I've been out on my temporary runaround bike going to work and out enjoying my other 600 straight after the accident unaware of my knee issue

Posted Image

But my knee needs looking at now, and I haven't been able to do much on the mini either which is winding me up chronic, very chronic, the engine builder has got my 2.0 block and is working his magic on it as we type, I'm getting him to build the bottom end for me as I don't have the motivation at the moment to build the whole lot, I'm still gonna build the head though myself as I want my mark on it somewhere

And I seem to be fighting my rear subframe for some unknown reason at the moment? Don't ask ;)

Its all going a bit pete tong for me at the mo :dontgetit:

I don't want to clog up your thread with my woes :thumbsup: but thanks for asking mate, appreciated :P

Back to yours, who done the inlet work if you don't mind me asking? Was it Bogg brothers? Might help someone else out in the same situation thats all

as kam said in his previous post it mite be handy for other people who need fabricating on manifolds , it was done by chris heart , his website is www.silverbackmanufacturing.com and the bloke is a complete ace and can make anything out of metal ,
