    Love how everything is just kind of built on a whim, while us mere mortals have to kind of plan around what we can buy off the shelf and custom build here and there. Well done

    What a cool build! Thanks for all the updates. I know how much time you spent typing, let alone wrenching and welding. Thanks for sharing this and I am subscribed for more!

    What's that thing in the corner behind your welder trolley that looks like a car, only smaller?

    ehehhe, yeah its my first car 1972 mini clubman, the carina build has been slightly put on hold so I can finish it off ,I need the room to build a rotisserie so I can stich weld up the carina chassis . so the mini has been full steam ahead for the last 8 months.
    have done a ground up rebuild in less than a year, such a fun little car to drive, and here in nz the on road costs are quite high, but not for the mini because they deem it as a vintage vehicle so it cost 1/10 to drive it than any other vehicle . : )

    I love working on those things. I hate waiting on parts, but they are just so dead simple. That little heater valve blew out on my friends' and it took a week to get the part in and roughly 30 seconds to change it out :P Have you switched to metal springs on yours or are you still running the rubber stuff?

    so , here we are again , a new year, and time to get back into the swing of thing, I have been getting side tracked allot . need to get focused . i went hard out on the mini project, and its so close to being finished, but then i got a bike. . . . 12000 rpm sounds so freeking sweet !!!



    so any who, this is what i have been up to on the carina front





    sump , its now real , just need to get the walls folded up so I can weld the sucker up. then make some kind of baffling I guess.





    .





    .





    .





    this is the 3rd one of these I have concocted (water bridge) and yeah its not super great, shit as welding, the flat bit to miss the belt didn't go according to plan. it was been a pain in the ass trying to figure out a nice and clean way to plumb the front water bridge, the entire design from factory is very out of the norm. so this has and still is so far my biggest chalange. I may even do this again and try find some oval pipe and pie cut it . my ocd isn't totally happy with the out come thus far .





    .



    did some more plumbing, got all the vac lines done, booster done, here is a pasanger side picture of engine bay





    .



    and started doing some cad . . but not with a computer, haha, this intake pipe is a monster, its cause I chose to keep the m112 throttle body . and I couldn't find a 4.5 inch 45 degree bend and a reducer all in one. so I just thought fuck it, just stay at that size , I have the room for it, and hopefully it will make a sweet roar and awesome dort type sounds .





    .



    this is it in panel steel. I ran out of card board for the day. so tomorrow ill get stuck into it some more.









    got some other shit done , finally got some material for my wheels, and I made a sold works design of the wheels I want but cant find. the elusive Riverge . kind of like work equips but with a bit more style . so once I have a bit more things completed I can start milling them . I figure ill get the sump done first other wise I cant stay focused enough to do to big chunks of the project at once . I always end up getting of task and starting some other half pie idea



    but yeah I still have completed a few little jobs like making the heater control panel work properly, made a clutch hose up. sold some shit to buy a bike, got a license to drive it, then I got some beer, and I got a new bbq. . . . shit getting side tracked again . mmmmm bacon .
