latest developments are that since getting the mini out of winter hibernation and restarting work on it, there seems to be air getting into the brake hydraulics. suspect is the NOS cooper s master cylinder. have got a rebuild kit so see how that goes. also, after malvern noticed that the driver side cv joint gaitor has sprayed grease everywhere so need to investigate.
otherwise the trip to malvern was good, using 6 gallon to do the 100mile B road trip
right hand tank to be fitted....
Ex-patrick motors quick lift jack is coming in handy:-
the inside of the b posts and window panels are now painted ready for rear cards and carpet:-
safety devices harness bar bolted in. couldn't get the middle bar to line up with the tunnel seatbelt holes but drilled some more holes. all fine though
next jobs are to bolt in the drivers bucket seat and install the TRS 5 point harness (need more eyebolts though) then get some battery cable to fab up the battery cut off switch by the drivers seat.
got some more alloys (thanks nick) to go on - just getting some part worn yokos swapped over at the moment. alloys are performance 6x13 minilights - slightly lighter, less tramlining and less tyre stretch than the 7x13's.
