With the car now running sweet as a nut, I decided to do some minor planning and collect parts! I've really enjoyed the ownership of this little car so far!
Bought a Mini 500 gearknob in need of some TLC. So. Got the drill out, stuck an 8mm drill bit and covered it in a cloth and rammed the gearknob on top. Que some 800, 1200 and 2000 grit wet and dry paper and 300rpm!
With the hotter weather, I treated the car to a very basic compound polish and wax. Scrubs up well!
Oh yeh, a little change of plan for the engine. Just bought some low compression 1293cc pistons and one of these :twisted:
Overall idea is to use an SC MPi inlet system as this will simplify trying to program an ECU with the siamese style firing of the MPi's injectors. It will also mean i won't have to mess around with custom manifolds. I have just placed a large order for parts from the ever reliable Minispares :) and the ever present minisport. Oh yeh, still waiting for my new wheels 3 months on.
This will be... interesting to say the least!
