Re: 92 mini aka bibsi

Well hello all,

haven't been on here in ages.

Just seen my mini reappear as a 1966 hmmmmm, she's gotten older in years all of a sudden.

and more expensive too lol.

Someday when i can afford to buy another shell i will do another one.
Anyone got a rolling shell with papers for a good home:)

Re: 92 mini aka bibsi

I'd love to do a rotary engine rear wheel drive conversion. Like from an rx-8 which can be had cheap and already have 190 to 210 bhp standard. And the rotary engine is very small in dimensions. only thing is that the gearbox is probably massive. however i never seen it done so have nothing to go by....

Re: RSA consultation period on testing vintage vehicles

There is nothing wrong with cars being tested provided they have the resources to deal with it and a clear set of rules for modifications and their tests eg braking mods like disk to drums

If it's badly seized good old cowboy way was to use hammer and chisel. The nut will be a bin job after it.
