I paid a visit today to AJ's Minis to make sure the new seat belts I've purchased would fit the mount points. It's the first time I've seen the shell since it left my house in January 2019.
Excellent progress is being made with a new drivers side floor half panel fitted, diver side rear wheel arch, driver side rear quarter and the strip down of the passenger side rear quarter underway.
What a place!
I visited a few weeks ago to attend a wedding. The plan was to see as much of the country as we could within the limited time frame of 10 days or so. My wife and I had 3 days booked in Tokyo so I thought it would be rude not to attend the legendary Mini Maruyama.
I will let the pictures do the talking.
A Thing of Beauty
A lot of progress has been made on the Supercharger conversion since my last update. All of the parts have been machined and the main casing has been treated to a lovely coat of Cerakote, my new favourite discovery.
Finished Badge in Cerakote
I've always been a big fan of MK1 minis and I particularly liked the early Morris mini bonnet badge shape. My custom badge started out as a Morris badge I purchased over 10 years ago from eBay. I was originally going to fit it as is but the condition wasn't perfect and the addition of a 3D printer to my tools has opened up lots of opportunities to customise.
