Bennys Mini Build

Post by Benny375 on Wed Feb 09, 2011 4:50 am

Okey Dokey
In the spirit it is intended, i will post my doings on the Mini as the Build progresses.

Today
Took the side panels off and will be replacing with new tomorrow
Went in the house and made a cup of tea.....played with the dog
Sat on the bonnet and drank my tea. (Tetleys of course)
Got the wet and dry out i had purchased previously, and decided to find something to get some water.
Bucket found and filled it at the sink.
Had a go at wet and drying the back of the mini......got bored.
Went in the house and made a cup of tea.
Bev came home, so went in the house and watched some Antiques programme.

Will it be ready for practise day........bloody right it will be

Sleep Sleep Sleep Sleep Sleep Sleep Sleep Sleep Sleep Sleep Sleep Sleep Sleep Sleep Sleep Sleep

The Bucket is an orange deluxe model i purchased from B & Q's Superstore in Blackpool

It has a metal and wood handle, carved i believe from real tree wood.





Colours are an issue at the moment as it has to blend in with the full size Elma Thud my wife is painting on the roof

How much did you pay for the bucket? I buy orange ones for my Donkeys but remove the handles for safety reasons. If ever you break the wooden handle I have six spare ones you could have.

A Metro rad is a good option with the associated electric fan assembly. That's what I will be using, it is quite a wide rad but not too tall.

A mini rad isn't a bad option cos its already in the car, does the job and means you can race this season cos you won't have to spend weeks on end painting the cowling. Easy motoring brought to you by me alien

Cheers for the offer of the handles Donkey

Just let all the crap store up on the floor. It tends to fall out on the motorway on the way to the track. Another bit of easy motoring brought to you from me alien
