A week in and my lack of self-control spending is starting to show. Luckily my wallet lacks stamina artificially slowing the process.

It is constantly on my mind... I just want to get right to 'fixing it' but the dam postman is slow and the bank balance is weak.

I like this project so much that I am going to make another little donation to your bank balance to help it along.
Edit: Done! I have added a little to your PayPal account

Sadly, I have 3 67 HR Holdens in the backyard in various states of DIS-repair. I had plans for a 4 bay shed 15 years ago when I moved in but it never happened :/ I do have a 'shed-load' of spares in a shipping container (also in the backyard). I am the Bracken Ridge Bogan!

Day one stats of the Mini build stats with 15 new subscribers and an extra $7.15 added to the build budget. 
Spend so far is about $7000 .... I'm bang on target to sleep on the couch soon lol 



New roof liner arrived as well as some bulldog clips & got the boot and cabin vacuumed and cleaned out.

 

Also had a chance to sort through all the parts we got with the car. Was hoping for some hidden gems but it's all just standard mini stuff. We have decided to store most of the spare parts with just a handful of parts being useful for the ev conversion. Parts will all be cleaned up quickly, oiled, then put into storage. 




Still looking for :
  1. Good front seats - either original or Classic Recaros 
  2. Good front bumper

Considering the age, you could put them on GumTree or other sites to sell to local collectors/hobbyists/restorers. Get some $$ back to help keep you out of the dog house Wink
