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.
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.
Ah yes, nothing like buying a car sight unseen, and then choosing to fly across the country and drive said car back again. Yup, I’ve done it again.
Well today has been somewhat bitter-sweet. Little Snicket has been moved onto a new owner.
Today was the day; Recheck day.
My recheck is booked for Wednesday, so with limited time to get it all sorted, I got the Mini back together.
Since I was at a standstill with the rear of car due to waiting for the rear arms to be reconditioned, I decided to push on with the front of the car.
