Thanks for the comments, we have had our good times and bad, still with things to do to meet my exacting standards and also a number of other planned modifications.

However with no plans to sell, I am in no rush.

63,000 miles on the clock now but only 1500 in the last two years.

Hi Richard,

I have another question for you about your APs.
I've fitted some to my Mini now but am having some problems with noise from the front struts. Have you had this issue at all?

The noises are a squeak, like the coil spring moving on the top spring pad, and a 'boing' near full lock, as if the spring moves suddenly.

I'm thinking about making a nylon washer for the bottom spring perch to allow the spring to slide a little, any thoughts?

Steve

If among that collection of bushes there are rear trailing arm bracket front bush inserts do NOT fit them.

They don't allow full joint articulation and put extra stress on the bolt.

I put some in when I rebuilt the rear axel with GP trailing arms etc. After six months I took them out. Felt so much better without them in.

Plus...

^^ouch!

I love those wheels on the car! Like a classic set of minilites! Suits the car well that'll be a bit of a stiff ride but I love how well they help hold the road with a bit of powerlflex!


Shopping soon for a Gen1 Cooper! Watch this space! :P
