11-30 July 2017: on the ground at last!

new front brakes

In the last two weeks of July, we finished the brakes and lowered Mini onto the floor.

On the 15th, Allen and I made progress on bleeding, but ran into an issue.

The weekend of 22-3 was very social, and on the 26, Brad and I made (mostly Brad) progress on the brakes: assembled and bled.

The 26th was local Brits, and we had great cars, for example:

classic British!

Allen and I mounted the wheels, but found the jack’s reservoir was empty.  I filled, and on Sunday 30 July, I pressured the tyres, and lowered the car to the floor, and torqued the wheels.

Next: drive!

New look wheels!
