I found a nut from a seatbox securing bolt on the drive yesterday, must have been there at least 2 years because it's that long since I had my seatbox out. Strange because it's a block laid drive and we walk up and down that bit several times a day to the fridge / freezer in the garage. It was rusty but I'm sure with some Mannol rust remover it'll go again.

I was amused to read on the Mannol rust remover web blurb, the following:
Shake the balloon well before use.

Okaaaay, and that has what to do with rust removal?? Tch, I do wish people would keep their private habits private! :)

Can't comment on the balloon situation but I know it's very good stuff.

Got Betsy out of the garage ( started first turn after pre-heat ) and went to our local wickes for 4 600x600 concrete slabs a bag of gravel and a bag of compost. She rode nicely and drove well. My first trip out in some time , possibly since last year. Put a smile on my face as usual. I really must make more time to use her.

They do ride well/better with some weight on board  :gold-cup

I fitted the passenger side sill, front part, trimmed and drilled the fabricated brackets to suit. Repainted a portion of the chassis before bolting the seat box in place, Duralac between the ali and galv/sheradized fixings. Test fitted the old floor panels and decided to make new. Test fitted one of the old Mini seats versus the deluxe seat squabs and backs. I've a bit to do before I reinstall the loom but that's the next big chunk.

Painted and made the brackets for the rear mud flaps that were part of the group purchase. I decieded to go with the same colour as the wheels. Or to be correct my wife decided which colour to use.

Careful how you phrase things:
'The wife.. been stored in the attic since 2019.' People could get the wrong idea.

Working on a petrol engine recently, that hasn't run for 15 years that I know of. While no expert on carburettors, I thought it best to at least evict any spiders in residence in the famed Weber 34 ICH. The filter (to left of float) contained a fair bit of dust, the float bowl only a trace.
The tiny coil spring that flips the choke flap has disintegrated, where do I look for spares?

Very satisfied to get this out!

Been tickling away welding this gear lever back together. It was a series 3 one, I just bent it to match the S2 and threaded the top.

Good work.

For anyone wishing to "convert" a generic S3 Britpart gearstick to an S2/2A style, here are the measurements you need:-
