Something to look forward to

Post by IslandBlue »

When we are finally released from this ongoing state of paralysis we can look forward to seeing the fruits of people's labour during lockdown - there should be quite a few newly restored and refreshed cars to be seen and used.

I resurrected my project that stalled in 2016. Should be out of paint in the next couple of weeks. Front subframe at the blasters and I’m slowly emptying my bank account and minispares stock room of parts.

And it's all going well as we discovered on an essential (island blue Mini convoy) journey on Saturday!

In other news the 1293 engine and gearbox which Floormanager (Paul) assembled and rebuilt respectively was installed in place of the 998 in my '89 (former) City E the autumn of 2019 and is now run in.

Beyond running it in and a bit of electrical work such as installing lighter socket, a dedicated poti socket, map reading light and correcting the spotlamp wiring I have failed to take advantage of lockdown as I am too reliant on Paul for help and encouragement!

Anyway, I have a 7.5" disc conversion kit and some 10" wheels to play with as well as some new shocks and mk2 rear lights to fit so as spring is looming it's time to take the plunge...

A furloughed friend found the time to paint my Elf and I managed to throw a few bits on it in two days in December, pre lockdown.
