The subframe is the easy part, if you're losing motivation at this stage the rest wont exactly be a music montage to the end i can tell you!


Itís not so much the motivation.. itís just work is keeping me from doing this task.. so having the subframe would be removing the hard part as Iím limited with when I can and canít do my hot work

Iím not so fussed about the rest of it at the minute as I can do everything else after hours as itís not hot work..

This ^. you've got so far. It's almost like ordering a taxi for the last mile of running a marathon!

I was in exactly this situation. Hadn't touched the mini for months. A friend kept asking me if I wanted help. At first I said no but last weekend, between the two of us we got so much done. Two sets of eyes, two sets of hands, two brains to figure stuff out.

Rose joints are OK under the Australian standard so your engineer should be OK with them but ... they are harsh for normal day to day driving.

Just a heads up - an opinion based on my experience ( vtec mini engineered , Sydney AU)

Rose joints are fine , but must be covered with rubber boots. You can get these from many suspension places online
