Hopefully this will continue onto being a long-running thread.

Stolen from another forum.

Pics are ok - limit them to one or two if you can, and keep them at a usable forum size (800x600).


SO.... What did you do on your Mini today?

Today I bought some new fuel line, new Facet competition fuel pump, and did a small rust replacement on the rear floor (panel that the rear seat cushion sits on).

Graham Russell milled one of his manifolds for me, as im having trouble fitting my HIF44 carb & manifold into my MK2 Cooper S, after getting it milled i refitted it to the car, still no luck, manifold won't seal onto the manifold gasket.

Looks like it gunna have to trim some metal out of the firewall :shock:

I chased some electrical faults and cleaned up the wiring a bit in spots.

Then took it for a drive.
