The Mini has been sitting, quietly gathering dust, in the Garage for nearly two years. Anyone who's had a project car and then a child (or childrens) probably knows this phenomenon. Through this period I've been buying parts for my Mini with a goal of completely renewing the suspension and everything related to it.
Two weeks ago I finally started.
But starting wasn't enough, I had to push it. Go beyond what I had initially planned.
Why you ask?
Because it's a mother trucking project car, that's why.
So here's where I'm at right now.
So that's it for now. I need to buy a lot more parts, there's a ton of dirty work to do with scraping off the asphalt coating on the underside of the car and removing some of the tar "rustproofing" applied internally. I expect this will take a LOT longer than I expect.
