I've got my old mounts here (the ones that the guy messed up) if you know someone who can poly-fill them in, actually Sean (The Stig) on here does this, if he hasn't got any mounts there I might be able to send mine to him...

Well after 6 months, the mini can finally roll.

Got my brakes through from mike174 off TMF and the cv joint from r1minimagic, much appreciated chaps

Pictures of the brakes....

and of them mounted on the car....

so today i let the mini see daylight for the first time in a long time and what a gorgeous bit of daylight it was today :D

Felt wierd slowly going down the ramp infront of my garage in the mini, didnt realise how damn small the thing is!!!

Anyways set about removing all the little bits i couldnt get at when it was in the garage such as fuel lines, rear lights, wheel arches, brake lines etc etc and gave it a quick clean and got all the crap out the inside. It had been gathering dust for 6 months so it deserved it

Few pics i took today

Very pleased with the shell of this car, really is mint, just odd bits here and there.

Good advertisement for autoglym this car, it was still beeding from the last polish i gave it. still came out all shiney :D

Posted Image

anyways put it back into the garage and left it there for today, started on the sound deadening on the floor but need a heat gun for the rest which im borrowing from a mate this week. then get the various welding jobs done by a body shop at the bottom of my street.

Gonna wait till next month though, im gonna get some parts from a honda breaker i know in scotland when i go up for a birthday which is soonish then get the engine in etc......ive got a plan in my head anyways :thumbsup:

why thank you, i think its anthracite? its a grey colour if you look close. i was all up for painting the car the same colour as the rocker cover but after having it out today im seriously considering leaving it as it is.

although i will probibly be rattle canning it so wont be the same :(
