    I saw this when I was at grinspeed last year.

    Both stevie and Dom were scared to test drive it on completion of their work. Mental is not the right word.

    FLOL pussies! the clutch they put in is silly to be fair. It takes some thighs to operate with such a small pedal throw. Hopefully that’ll be somewhat better with an OEM clutch.

    List is: fit oem clutch and pressure plate & resolve any clutch drag at idle issues.

    Replace coil suspension springs with ‘OEM’ mini red dot rubber cones (harder rubber than oem)

    Bleed brakes.

    Bush bash bosh. Ready to sit in my garage all winter and wait for a **** tonne of parts to arrive from around the world... and for me to start swearing at my dashboard! Joy!

    I'd rather the carbon one at twice the (initial) price myself.

    As at 125 you've still got to get it prep'd and painted.

    Karl makes a good point H! The carbon one is gonna look the t!ts, and it'll probably end up costing less once you factor in paint and prep. Get some nice fasteners for it, and it'll look fantastic

    Well, if I get this one I’ll probably get it flocked as he originally suggested. I’ve only enquired for now. I can see this one being easier to fit though...

    Well, fcuk all of a reply from TDK. So they can do one.

    I'm visiting another 16v mini owner a week on Saturday to have a chat and a rummage though his garage for spare parts. He's been building minis for 40 years and rarely threw anything away apparently.

    So I'm going to have a look through a pile of retro dashes and see if anything takes my fancy. If nothing then I'll get that carbon one ordered. I'll see what other goodies I can find whilst I'm there. Door furniture, wheel centre caps, CFC panels etc.

    Mini's still at Grinspeed. They've not touched it yet apparently, not a problem though. I did say I'm in no rush to get it back.

    Are you sure you're the right "diamond in the rough" to be entering that cave?
