Time to get serious on the Mini. Need to work out pick up date so I can have that side of the garage to spread out my Mini bits


You only need "A" side of the garage for your Mini's bits? :lol:

I'm still getting over how much space such a small car occupies when its in pieces.


They take up a lot of space when you blow them apart. Right now I have the boxes of loose bits in the car. The seats and some other parts on the roof. The deck lid propped against a wall. The doors against another wall.

I need all the loose bits away from the car and the front subframe out for me to be able to do the next bit of fabrication

My final entry into the R1 project's story. Today I took Blood Sweat and Beers for my last drive. I got a call from the transporter that he couldn't get into my neighborhood and asked if I could meet him at Lowe's. So I headed to the garage and fired up the car.

The drive was a hoot. It's only a couple of miles up to Lowe's but it was my last drive in her and I enjoyed it to the max.
Warmed the car up for a few minutes, back out of the driveway nice and easy, then LIT EM UP!!!! One last time. 8)

After that a nice easy drive through the neighborhood. Sun out, no top, high revving motor, and a lot of stares from the few neighbors that were out.

I rolled into the Lowe's parking lot and snapped a couple of pics before she loaded onto the car hauler.
