Hi,

I have spent just 1hr today in my garage.


Looks OK I think.
My top speed should be 130-ish with more stream line than a standard Mini.
I think I will be having brown pants with that sort of speed!

Cheers
Atchi

Hi,

Over the weekend, I have worked on few wirings and others.

I have been working on mk1 Swift Gti wiper motor with it's switches but with Citroen AX single wiper.
https://www.facebook.com/atsushi.kim...92749604557241

After that I tidied up wiring under the scuttle panel.
Then weld in actual scuttle panel to the rest of body.



I can now work on actual front screen to be fitted!

Cheers
Atchi

Hi,

While I'm getting my roll cage made, I have been busy making my bonnet.
I had a steel bonnet with air vents and so on but I found out that it will cool my radiator but send warm air into my engine.
So I dug out my GRP bonnet which has a Metro vent in but I wanted to fit a RS turbo vent just behind my radiator.

First I cut out hole for a turbo vent to fit and take out a Metro vent


Then I used GRP patty to fill the gap and reused what I have cut out for the hole left with Metro vent.



I will be sanding down and use filler to make it neat and flash.

Cheers
Atchi

So during last month, I have been waiting for my mate Dave to bend me roll cage CDS tubings.
He is a busy man but he managed to make it for me.
Mean while he was busy making me it, I fitted my rear boot set up.



Then all the fun started with my roll cage!



Gaset I made and welded in with my cage.

I can start building my dash then wiring!

Cheers
Atchi

Hi,

I'm working hard to get my on the road for Mini 60 IMM this year....

I have managed to get most of my instrument working.
Here is my rev counter working.



Then I have started to work on my doors and windows.



All of my indicator is working also!


After recommendation from my mate Dave, I will be fitting LED head light bulbs. I was going to fit HID but LED will be much simpler!

Cheers
Atchi

So, I have been busy doing as much as I can in little time I got before this summer.

First of all, I fit my driver side door.



Then I bought LED day light bulbs.



I needed to re-wire as I made mess 5 years ago. But finally, I got this!
Very bright but you can tell in day time.


So, I thought I shall try later!



All I need to do is only 1 side of A4! but my list id very small writing for the MOT!

Cheers
Atchi

You've been busy! Have you decided what the color will be when you eventually get it in to the paintshop?
