Just a little tease of something that will arrive end of Jan. or early Feb.
Just wanted to share why the roof rack was originally purchased. I will be putting samples and giveaway items in the bags that are on the roof. Thoughts?
I decided I really liked the look of a roof rack on the classic minis. So I bought one. I think it really suits the car well, and....when I feel like rolling without it, it will come off in 5 minutes.
I was finally able to finish installing the new driveshaft and disc brakes on the passenger side! Yes they are about 98% done, I only have a few little items to tie up before that side of the car is ready to go. Then on to the drivers side, and begin reinstalling the radiator, new hoses, etc. After that jack up the rear end and do the suspension there (should be easy) and we should be ready to roll. It's coming along, and I have some fun items on their way to really take this baby to the next level. Thanks for looking!
Thought I'd share some of the updates on my engine compartment. I'm still working on getting it all buttoned up, but here is a little taste of the before and after. What do you all think?
I have been able to get the interior to about the 90% mark! I think it looks fantastic and I only have a few more items to do before it is totally finished. The mechanicals are next on the list and they are the items that give me headaches! LOL! But let me know what you think of the interior.
I haven't gotten too far since the last update, but this is worth sharing! It is the floor crossmember (before and after) that will really only be seen when the seats get tilted forward to get into the back of the car. It's subtle, but sexy! They are inspirational quotes intermingled with some of the Shaklee products. After all this car is going to be a conversation starter for my business, so why not add some extra touches. It may not be everyone's cup of tea, but I really like the way it turned out.
It's been a little bit since I updated my progress on the mini. I've currently got almost all of the interior back together. I have not installed the seats yet because I have a few other items to handle before that. Also the dash should be going in this weekend. I'm awaiting one more part to have the final install of the rear lap belts done, and then the interior will be pretty much done. I've also got new driveshafts and front disc brakes ready to install and I just need to find some time to get around to doing it. Once that is done, I should be able to finish putting the engine all back together. I've got some fun business minded advertising ideas for the interior of the car that you will have to see! Gonna be awesome!
This has definitely been a learning process for me, and I am really enjoying the project. I'll update again shortly. Thanks for looking!
