Mitch came over to help me pull the power steering pump (Mitch - I found and printed a pictorial "how to"...) and I saw the new BBS wheels.  They look really cool, and the tires are HUGE.  The wheels are 3-piece wheels, and while cool, are a BEACH to clean!  Still - light and really strong.  Good stuff.

How about a CLOSE UP so folk can count all the tiny little brake dust collectors?

The wheels do look very good, but I would hate to clean them.

How do you tie the bow of the kayak?  To what?


I wish there was a local MINI Dealership, like our Honda, Subaru, Mazada and VW.

Sweet! How long have you had the "s" hood on the car Mitch? Did I just miss that for eternity?!?!

Thanks. Stephen, I had to go way under to find an attachment point. Martin, if you remember Eddie with the tricked out green "s" that left the country a few years back, he had an extra "s" hood laying around and gave it to me so I had it painted and threw it on.

I can't believe I missed noticing the S bonnet!  Looks great! Was it a perfect fit (swap) for the Cooper one?

It fit with no problems. You do have to move both headlights and align them.

I don't recall seeing that kayak in the accessories section of the MINI brochure.

Even worse, I've not yet spotted the MINI underneath either.

The MINI under it is driven mainly by my wife so you should see it puttering around Covington.  Of course I haven't bumped into you in either MINI in quite awhile.  Where you been keeping yourself?

I have the same commute that you know.  When I head for groceries and such, MINI usually morphs into an old pickup that needs some exercise.
