Life hack required

I'm wondering is there a lazy-ass way of removing the bitumen type spray on stone chip ?

My inner wings (what's left of them) and lower bulkhead have been sprayed with black bitumen type stone...

I think the problem is that a lot of members are UK and EU based where Aircon is not really something that is fitted to Minis.

A ringer is a car that has had its identity changed to that of another car. If he swaps the plates and VIN from the 850 to his other car then that car is a ringer

I tried them but I didn't like the flat lens as it stuck so far out of the headlight ring and the black centre reflects off the lens and gives the light a dark, smoked look. The smoked look does suit...

I'd say you have a fundamental issue with your cooling system. People have happily run Mini and MPi Mini rads with K-series cars without apparent issue. I would think your current set up should be...

From what I understand there is also back emf to consider in the alternator. The magnetic field in the alternator is trying to resist the pulley being turned, the faster you spin it the stronger the...

Yeah, I'm not convinced from what I've seen around you'll find 4x4" fit for a Mini in 7x13 with an ET less than about +10. If you go 6x13 or even 5.5x13 you'll get ETs down to about +28-30 otherwise...

D series engine is a better fit, it's a shorter block and doesn't extend under wing LH. You might be able to shift the engine over slightly to the RH side but you may have restricted steering lock...

I'd say it won't go without a huge bonnet bulge and probably modified wings too.

I've been very quiet as I ended up getting frustrated with the build and decided to take the summer hols off.

A 4-2-1 will always be a better manifold for a road car as it promotes mid range torque. The 4-1 will loose out a mid range but produce more at the top end which is fine for race cars where they...
