If you have the room you can take off the entire front end including the supercharger and reassemble in a day... gives you the chance to service everything and rectify leaks etc.

Look forward to the updates on this, they’re quite fun to work on and you get quite a lot of gratification too!

Remember to have fun

Look forward to seeing your progress on it.

Definitely a weird spec. Good point about track car, shame - as if it didn’t have a pano roof I’d be more than happy to offer a straight swap with your Checkmate

I’ll most likely be selling them and replacing with standard so I’ll gladly let you know ahead of time! My friend’s brother is already after them as well

What a great project that would be for you both. There’s plenty of busted MINIs around! Have you looked at my previous MINI thread? That’ll keep you going until I’ve fixed this one
