I got it kicked off a several weeks ago by finally cleaning up the radius arms and getting some paint on them. To be fair, after 40-odd years of life paint really seemed trivial to them, but I figured it was worth helping to maintain them for another 40.
So here's some progress.

So with those finished and ready to go the weather decided to put a crimp in my plans and has been in the high 90's, low 100's for a little while. I can't deal with that kind of heat (I am from Oregon after all) so I have to wave off to cooler pastures.
I made a little, well-timed purchase from the nice folks over at Mini Mania to help motivate me further once this heat spell breaks.
|Minilite 10x6's for the win!|
Last, but not least, I'd be embarrassed if I didn't send a huge thanks to Jeremy over at Jet Motors for a haul of extra parts to help with the get-back-on-the-road project including an bigger master cylinder, finned rear drums, Cooper S front disk brakes, those gnarly Advan A032Rs, and a host of other parts that I'd list if I could remember them all. I mean yeah, I have to pay him for this stuff, but I really do appreciate the advice.
