    2002 Dark Silver Track/Sprint Project

    Went to the Regal Autosport Cars and Coffee meet on Saturday. A good meet with some nice cars!

    Thanks. I was in two minds as to whether to do it, I'm really chuffed with how it came out.

    Went out this afternoon with a fellow track MINI owner Brian and his Dark Silver car for some photos.

    Been a couple of weeks, more things have happened. First up I tried to do a Sunstrip and failed miserably, too many curves in a Mini screen and I suck at applying this stuff. I think I'll have to enlist a local sign writers to do it properly. For now I've just gone for a Yoko sticker. Untitled by Nicholas Horne, on Flickr BlackFlagLabs sticker on the rump, because he sorts all my stickers out for me. Untitled by Nicholas Horne, on Flickr Next up coolant tank. This is a known week spot on these cars as they perish and crack as well as the caps failing. There's a few decent replacement tanks on the market from Airtec, canton etc but I've gone for the DaveFab one. It's new to the market but the Dave's have been knocking it out of the park with MX5 bits for a few years now plus this is designed and made in the UK. Really chuffed with it.

    Went out and got some proper shots of the car now the livery is coming along nicely. Big shout out to https://blackflag-labs.co.uk for helping make the livery idea a reality.

The players guys always put on a good show and Goodwood is such an awesome place.

    Really chuffed with this weekends progress. I've always loved the look of the Kanjo cars from Japan. Essentially illegal street racers and there's a good thread on them over at retro rides: http://forum.retro-rides.org/thread/177945/kanjo-style-introduction Here's a couple of examples: So I wanted to emulate that style on the mini and my friend Josh has a vinyl plotter so we ordered a bunch of sticky back plastic and this is the result. Untitled by Nicholas Horne, on Flickr Untitled by Nicholas Horne, on Flickr Untitled by Nicholas Horne, on Flickr Got a few more bits to do, like a sun strip, but I need a replacement screen first.

    Update time, been a bit remiss as usual. After Christmas it was time to get my wallet out and splash the cash. First up was a rear 4 point cage from the excellent AMS Fabrication near Goodwood. Untitled by Nicholas Horne, on Flickr Untitled by Nicholas Horne, on Flickr Untitled by Nicholas Horne, on Flickr Really stoked with it and can't recommend Sam enough. He has Jigs for MINI and MX5s so give him a shout if your after some roll over protection. I then went to Autosport and bought some new seats as the Monaco Pro was not at all comfortable fo me and I knew from having them in an MX5 that Sparco Sprints fit me like a glove. Untitled by Nicholas Horne, on Flickr Untitled by Nicholas Horne, on Flickr Mid fitting snack Untitled by Nicholas Horne, on Flickr And in with the belts. Untitled by Nicholas Horne, on Flickr Now the belts I already had from my old supercharged MX5 and so I fitted them. The general consensus seems to be that they look terrible with the blue seats and I'm inclined to agree. Black belts added to the shopping list. Next up is getting a livery applied to it this weekend but as usual it's decided to throw a hissy fit and is firing coolant out of the expansion tank. Bloody thing!!!!!!!!!!

    Wavetrac Differential Group Buy

    Seems a good value GB but sadly an upgrade to my OE LSD is quite far down my priorities list. I'd love to drive one to see what the difference is like as it's a big spend on a single item.

    Well...

    lol, that's an understatement!

    Cheque book Racing R53 build

    I like mine just fine with the spring in it, as does everyone else who's had a good grope.

    TVs for sale

    Assume that’s in the US? I WILL get myself a TVS kit for mine one day.

    The extra weight is a penalty too far I think. The rear cafe will allow me to fit harnesses to really feel what the car is doing. That’s a big win for me. Funds then need to aimed at replacing the AP Coilovers.

    Hard to downshift to 2nd

    About £80 from MINI I think.
