Mad Mini

Monday, September 13th, 2010

When a customer called to ask if we could do some work to get his mini through an MoT this wasn’t exactly what we were expecting.  The car had obviously seen some pretty serious modification before it came to us, with the whole centre section and roof having been chopped out. You now sit on the back seats to drive it, or at least you would if they hadn’t rotten away. The car had sat for around 7 years and although it had been covered it wasn’t looking well. Everything is seized or rotten but we managed to get the engine fired into life and free of the gearbox and brakes. There’s a lot to do but it’s such a wonderful little car we can’t wait to see it back on the road again

track day civic

Monday, September 13th, 2010

This civic came in needing an MoT and setting up for the race track. The two things don’t normally go hand in hand but this little terrier has to do daily driving duties and will see some serious track day action too. There a was a big list of work including welding and various suspension upgrades, wheel bearings, brakes etc. Once it was all assembled the geometry equipment came out to make sure everything was pointing in the right direction and away it went for it’s MoT. With a green ticket first time through the owner went away with a big smile and no doubt headed for the nearest race track.
