In my quest to tidy up the loose ends and get the Mini ready for sale, the car received an oil service and a simple but impactful cosmetic change.
Whilst the other cars have been in the spotlight, getting all the love and attention, the poor little Honda has been sitting off to the side, trundling along as the super reliable daily, clocking up the miles.
Another thing that has bothered me since I got the Mini, was the horrible wind noise from the passengers window at speed. It needed fixing.
Finally, It looks like I might be coming to the end of fixing the previous owners neglect and bodges.
In an effort to stamp out the issues this car has, it was time to tackle the most serious issue; The front control arm bushes.
With old cars, it always seems to feel like you’re taking it for a WOF. Six monthly WOFs for old cars is a bit mean, but I wouldn’t trust it any other way, with the state of the rubbish on our roads.
It’s been like Christmas around here, with all my individually boxed RockAuto parts arriving for the Mini.
Well here is a blast from the past. It occurs to me that I still haven’t got around to posting the one final thing I did on my old R50 Mini Cooper before selling it; Replacing the bonnet stripes.
