  1. great to hear the old girl is getting some love
  2. lol, yeah BMW bought the Mini brand. I can't use stock bolt on exhaust because of the 2.3 and the 4-link arms would also get in the way. I enjoy making stuff
  3. Zuk exhaust is horrible, it's loud, farty (no leaks) and drones, especially since the rpms are consistently at 3k plus. So much so, i started looking for parts to convert to a manual. Decided to re-do the whole cat back. Re-did all the pipework, added a CAT (was CAT-less) and removed the magnaflow (magnaflow is the muffler on the bottom) Since space is T I G H T, I found a nice little muffler at Kennys from a Mercedes, but it didn't make any difference. I exchanged the Merc muffler for a Mini Cooper muffler. The Cooper has 30bhp more power, so I figured it would work. The Mini muffler is BIG, but I managed to squeeze it in, and it's nice and quiet now 20220809_090013.mp4
  4. yeah, I was out with the NSJC last run on Stagecoach. I'll probably tag along on their next run too....hard and Soft
  5. it's nice to have doors off. I'm thinking about tube doors too.
  6. received_396599525787099.webp
  7. had to do it. my feet an legs are getting cooked with the heat of the Trans. Thinking of switching to a manual. I have a Tracker Trans and pedals, but idk if the tracker Trans will bolt up to the 2.3 modded a $12 pair of bicycle mirrors (threads were too thick for the door bucket holes) got some pins on order received_396599525787099.webp
  8. I ended up repairing the cracks and plating it with double thickness steel, and plug welding the center.
  9. Got the steering back together. Added snaps to the bikini top 'ears' The 96-98 model has snaps to hold the side pieces to the wind deflector, where the bikini came with velcro strips for the 89-95 models. Easy fix
  10. I'm hearing it might be for those who wheel their sidekicks. Thinking back to winter tho, and the steering wheel center point changed on a tour, right after I slid sideways into a huge hole....I actually smacked my head hard on the overhead radios it was so violent. Anyways, I think that is when the box got pulled away from the frame, and probably cracked it.
  11. looks wicked, nice work
  12. 2 hours just to undo the tetris lol
  13. ah the joys of having a popular rig.....aftermarket
  14. yup a lot of stress in that area, epecially with big tires
  15. I've not really looked properly yet, but it seems like access might be ok once the box is removed. Might have to remove the rad. There is a fish plate on the outside of the frame at the same location, so IDK how that will play into things.
  16. looks like I've got some work to do after discovering the steering box has pulled away from the fame I'm running 35s, so was thinking of going down this route
  17. I'll run the bikini top until winter now, as it's super convenient, albeit not very water proof for the back. it does flap a lot tho, so added a crossbar so I can lay it down and put a bungie on it without blocking rear view.
  18. yes, just waiting for it to be drinkable as its very cloudy. butvat least we can shower
  19. Added a heavy duty tablet mount for my 8.4" Android tablet and maps. Went dirty on it and drilled it straight into the dash. Thr dash isnt mint, so I'm OK the that


    Chocolate and pastries, usually.... DK I think


    BTW D is Germany


    bad ***, but I'm not sure id like their deisel bill right now
  23. I did the same headlight conversation on the old f150, and it made a world of difference. Looking good!!
  24. it was last minute. sorry, I thought Dave had reached out.
  25. I like that idea for next time I put an AGM in the Sami, and Dave fired it up after putting it away outside for winter, and it was like it had a fresh charge. They are a little more pricey, but i think they do last longer.
