This project would be so easy if everytime I bolted something together I could leave it there. Just fitted the throttle linkage last night so suppose that will have to come off now :sad: Off to phone Chris to order 2 more.

Haven't tried yet as I haven't got a throttle cable yet. Where did you get yours from? Should have mine running middle of next week.

Cool!! If you need any help give me a shout and i can pop over....

I am now on my 2nd cable as my 1st one melted!! You can get them off Chris for about £40.

Did you call Chris about the linkage?

OMG ...
what an amazing picture ... it really shows just how much u have done ..

it never stops amazing me just how much time/money people put into these kinda projects..
just to have a VERY nice looking, fast, car .. (which is not ya running around car ..)

and to have these sites that brings us all together really is the icing on the cake :(
makes my. standard minus build look a bit plain ! lol

think so far out of the three R1 Mini builds Ade has to wins (rear R1 Minus).. just because his wont rust away .. is the only reason i stopped putting any more effort into doing up me normal minis .. dont mattar how much love/money/time into it, 3/4 years down the line it starts to rust away !
althou... on reflection... you would just get it resprayed etc as it seems money does'nt stop ya ! lol .. thankfully

again thank you for keeping us all in on your projects :angry: they all are simple amazing creations. and some day i hope to se them 'in the flesh'
Mick ..

Finally fitted the 2nd seat today.

They have been sitting in my bedroom for the last 6-8 months and never thought of trying both of them. I just had the drivers seat fitted. Came to fit the passenger to find it was sticking out of the window about 2 " :( :angry: :angry: :angry:

Now they are both in after moving the drivers over a bit!!!
