Well, the time finally came. After many insultingly low offers and a bit of time-wasting, the Mini is gone.
In my quest to tidy up the loose ends and get the Mini ready for sale, the car received an oil service and a simple but impactful cosmetic change.
Another thing that has bothered me since I got the Mini, was the horrible wind noise from the passengers window at speed. It needed fixing.
Finally, It looks like I might be coming to the end of fixing the previous owners neglect and bodges.
In an effort to stamp out the issues this car has, it was time to tackle the most serious issue; The front control arm bushes.
It’s been like Christmas around here, with all my individually boxed RockAuto parts arriving for the Mini.
Well here is a blast from the past. It occurs to me that I still haven’t got around to posting the one final thing I did on my old R50 Mini Cooper before selling it; Replacing the bonnet stripes.
Ah yes, nothing like buying a car sight unseen, and then choosing to fly across the country and drive said car back again. Yup, I’ve done it again.
Well today has been somewhat bitter-sweet. Little Snicket has been moved onto a new owner.
