Bollocks to that. It'll have a nice sort of 70's vibe, you know, flappy brown corduroys and a tight white/bum-cooling windcheater...

Long time no update.

BRB has been back on the road this summer, and the track: we joined the New MINI Club Sweden for the 2017Summer Meet, including a day at the Ring Knutstorp. Great fun, and so cool to drive a new track!!

In terms of fettling, I managed to install the studs, which makes swapping wheels over easier, but I used the wrong glue (I suppose I just picked up the wrong packet) so I'll need to remove and reinstall.

The paint is pretty poor, as I have now collected so many stone chips over the last ten years. It really needs a full repainting, or a wrap. Presumably the latter is cheaper, but it won't last as long.

And I finally got tired of the B14s for daily duty, as they're so firm (not much good for my daily commute through the city which is cobbled...). So I ordered a set of Ohlins R&T from Orranje.

And there's a small issue with the idle: I think the by pass valve needs replacing, but I've got a 1320 uprated job in my stash, so I need to get the car up to the mechanic's place.
