Well, it's been a long time since I posted something here,
I repaired the full aero kit, it was a shitload of works as it was so trashed.. I'll post some pics of that ASAP.
The car now run an OBX manifold with a homemade tomcat to a R52 Non-res milltek cat-back. It sounds amazing, my neighbourgs loves it :thumbup:
I recently start to wrap my dashboard with some glossy carbon vinyl, it's clearly perfectible, but for a first shot, I'm more that happy with the result. will post some pics ASAP too.
And I plastidiped the grey rings, for the speedo, vents... in matte black.

Now i'll be time for the big maintenance and bodykit install, coilover inspection as they started to knock, RCA instal ect...
But I miss a door sill, do someone have this in stock : part num : 51710154680

Will see where all of this leads me, cheers !

Oh boy it's been a minute since I went here ! I missed you guys !

Long story short, back in mid 2019 the mini started to shit itself (Fuckin' Mini right..), so I got myself a new fun and bigger daily :
Tire Wheel Vehicle Car Window

I needed a releable daily to go to work, and the mini was starting to give me anxianty, and my GF was also giving me so much shit about the mini, I had to get out of this situation..
So I got rid of that girl and kept my mini :cool:.

Fast forward 2 week ago, I finaly started to work on the mini again:
Wheel Tire Car Land vehicle Vehicle

Automotive tire Product Motor vehicle Automotive design Tread

Wood Floor Flooring Tool Engineering

Automotive tire Wheel Motor vehicle Vehicle brake Synthetic rubber

Automotive tire Wall Motor vehicle Art Space

Gesture Font Finger Material property Eyelash

Wood Spark plug Tints and shades Jewellery Auto part

Motor vehicle Bicycle part Auto part Wood Gas

Wood Plant Auto part Shipping box Hardwood

There is so much shit to do.. Most of everything is leaking, cracked, rusty..
I'm just hopping I'll not have to change the head gasket for now, I would rather prefer doing that at the same time that the big engine internal upgrades.

I'll get in more details about all the issues the car have in an other post, because I've been out of the Mini world for so long that I don't know most of the things..

Anyway, glad to work on that old piece of junk again, I feel like you can't never get over these cars..
Cheers !

Oh well... Fuck me I guess..Fuckin'Mini 😑
That's some parts the lower 2nd piston.. Nice.

Should I just change the engine all together at this point ?

Or I could just full send, and go from a hobo sub 2000£ repair to a 10 000£ full forged project...
