Oh boy. What should have been a summer full of joyful rides has turned out to be quite challeging.
After the last visit to the doctor, I had a few rides in the Mini. I then decided two things:
2. I was tired of the big wheels that did absolutely nothing good for the car on normal roads and wanted to switch to smaller ones.
I had the camshaft switched to a 255 – that’s nice!
I put my 7*13 wheels up for sale, as I had seen a good offer for some 6*12 all white wheels at minispares-online.co.uk.
After a week I hadn’t received any wheels, so I wrote to Huddersfield Spares (minispares-online.co.uk). They told me it was an error that I received the ‘shipped’ information, as they was out of stock for the next 3 weeks!
Guess what happened. Just before my first ride, I found out I had a punctured tyre!
A very friendly soul from the Danish Mini community offered me to borrow a set of spare 4,5*12 – thanks Niels Pauli Juncher!
I managed to get rid of all my electrical issues and I also had the hood sound isolated (now my Mini has a deep Ferrari a like sound :)) License plate is also perfectly attached now, and I found some paint in the right red color, though I still haven’t fix painted the small spots yet.
Some rusty window rail support needs to be changed, as the window in the right hand side makes a rattling noise and doesn’t slide well.
We are also not completely convinced that the wishbone bushings in front are all well – but that may also be the wheels.
