Well the big black brute is now gone :( so its been onwards and upwards with the mini . New headliner is now in as is the cage. Had some trouble with the front hubs . The wheelnuts started to spin on the studs. :roll: Well the long and short of it is the stud holes in the hubs were drilled oversize , so they went off to Lloyd to be sent back to the UK . Next on the list is to get the interior in and sort out an engine :D

I will say i cant find some of the parts I stored, so the rebuild is going very slow :roll:
The rear wheel cylinder on the drivers side is nackered :x and as you can see I had to fit a new clutch slave cylinder :roll: well two years off the road will do that to rubber parts :roll:
