Put a new cover on my spare rear seat back to replace the crusty one in my Elf. I went with a MKII pattern to go better with my Miata front seats.

Went for an hours drive up thru the twisties on the hill behind Newberg Or.  That rear sway bar sure is nice.  Closer to oversteer.  Some Subaru showed up behind me but he couldn't stay with me on the really tight turns.  Then stopped at one of my favorite spots for their great "Barrel salad" and a glass of wine.

Working on my mustang mostly, but I have run through 4 tanks of fuel in the mini and am enjoying every drop.

Thought about taking it to Mini Club coffee run..... But it was snowing so took the Golf instead :)

Cheers, Ian

I went around the entire mini replacing all the rotted corners with new stainless sheet metal. Replaced the outer rockers. Did a rolling restoration. Took 7 months not a week, still have lots more to do.

replaced the fan belt - my that just does squeeze by the plastic fan blades....   The squealing has stopped and the generator light only flickers at idle....... Had a nice run to Bonita Bills- "No shirt?, No Shoes?- Can I get you a beer?"

Replaced the red dot cones with new red dot cones.  Still impatiently waiting for them to settle to an acceptable height after putting 800-1000 miles on the car.

Like Dan, I squeezed past the entire 10'1" and 1430lbs of its bulk to get to some more shovels and some spare jerry cans to top up the snowblowers. We're probably getting the same system as Dan.

The classic Mini does not emerge from it's confines for the next 3 months or so, while the modern Binis get beaten and tortured
all winter, every winter.

I will have to walk past it to get to the snowblower. (Sigh) We are supposed to get 8"-10" of wet, heavy snow today.

Purchased new carpets and fitted them.  Also took a drive to the next town to hit some balls on the driving range.

Also this arrived today, looks good and hopefully better on my mini!
