I wouldn't take all the questions as a negative, if anything your getting plenty of feedback which at this early stage should be a positive. If you were well known in mini circles or known for organizing events there may be less questions but as said above you seem to have come out of nowhere. The p...

Apart from a date and venue your not giving away much information of what to expect on the day. Entry price for show or show and track? Will the track be purely minis? How much track time? Will there be show prizes? Will there be autojumble or traders? (any confirmed yet?) What time will it start an...

Is that the 1331cc twin cam fuel injected. 5 speed box I presume. About 88 bhp. If it all works out I'm sure it wouldn't be too hard to move on to the turbo version.(130 bhp). There is a limit on the size of attachments but the quality is still good enough if you resize them. I usually open them in ...

Looking at your description of parts and work done and photos in the ad I would think the price is ok. Most important thing to achieve that price would be photos of the build and prep work before painting. In the UK at the moment that price would be good but weather the Irish market is back up there...

Don't know what your budget is but if you can afford Heritage panels for the visible panels they are a better fit. I use Somerford Minis for parts.

Ad heading says 1966 and the first line of discription says 1996.

There are no fuses on the headlights on a 1990 mini and if both lights are gone the problem will be between the dip switch and the bullet connectors (most likely) at the bonnet release.The reverse light is on a fuse behind the carb and also has several connectors along the way, two behind the heater...

If your using more petrol than normal than baring a leak it is most likely the carb. A blocked filter , weak pump or electrical fault will not use more petrol. Strip and clean the carb.

Many people have done it with no reported problems as far as normal driving is concerned.
As for the NCT , I have not heard of anybody passing a SPi without the cat.
Carb minis up to '94 with the cat have a special NCT allowance of 3.5% CO2 and I think they can get through without it.

On a roundnose mini the side light is a part of the head light. On a sealed beam it hangs below the main lamp connector and on a halogen conversion it is a push fit into a rubber gromet on the back of the headlamp. On a Clubman the sidelight is part of the indicator unit . remove the two screws that...
