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!
