Here’s our lit­tle Mini 25. We’ve owned it since April 2015, and since then we’ve had loads of work done on it, in­clud­ing a com­plete en­gine paint and over­haul, an en­tire new cool­ing sys­tem and new brakes all round. It’s soon to have new sus­pen­sion and the brake hy­draulics re­newed back to stan­dard. I’m try­ing to re­turn it back to its orig­i­nal look, give or take a few mods like the wal­nut dash and al­loys. The chrome work has all been re­newed, the bumpers re­stored back to orig­i­nal Nim­bus Grey, the front grille rubbed down and painted grey – even the rear num­ber plate light holder and door han­dles re­freshed. The past year has been test­ing, as there were many things put to­gether in­cor­rectly, but we think we’ve found all of them or at least most of them!

Now that’s one tidy en­gine bay! The bumpers are back to smart Nim­bus Grey .
