Sending the Cams off to piper for reprofiling to the "fast road" spec. Trying to find someone to skim, port, polish and gas flow the head. The rest of the engine will be slowly put back together at some point as a spare.
I've also now go two spare inlet manifolds so if any one is looking for a mk2 manifold i've got one for sale.

Well it didn't move for a long time. Being trailered from my old house to a friends yard for storage then over to my new house once the garage had been cleared and prepped. It then sat for a few more months until the decision was made it MUST be at our wedding. So i set about fixing all the issues which kept it from the road.
A number of electrical issue meant it wouldn't starts, after a few hours of head scratching i found all the blown fused, dodgy relays and got it going. This resulted in fuel leaking all over the floor. The stainless braded fuel line had perished and required replacing. I ran new copper lines and rubber flex under the floor which sorted that out. The brakes needed a bloody good bleed to get them working and then it was off to the MOT station. Just before leaving i thought "I should check all the lights work".... and they didn't. Brake light switch had died, i tried to repair it but no luck. Rang round all the parts placed near my house and you'll never guess... no one stocks anything for a real mini anymore, so i made one. Using a interior door light which and the body of the old brake light switch along with a bit of hotglue i had a working bodge.

Off to the MOT station and it passed, few advisories but nothing major. A friend then came round and we spent 7 hours cleaning it. I'm not a big car cleaning guy, soapy water and a spong is normaly enough for me but my mate brought his gear. Started with a snow foam thing, then we clay bard the whole thing, then he used a DA polish thingy and finally a coat of fancy wax. Lots of effort but it does look and feel great, the roof is as smooth as glass.

So a few days before the wedding i drove it down and packed it ready for the wedding to be built around it.

This wasn't the only one of my cars there... we built this on my stag weekend.
