Started on what should have been a very simple project on Li'l Red today -- mounting some 6-1/2 inch speakers in the rear parcel shelf.  But I quickly discovered that a previous owner had really butchered the metal there.  He'd cut some jagged holes for some off-size speakers -- too big for 6-1/2" and too small for 8".  So, I had to cut some metal plates to cover the old jagged holes and give me a clean surface to start over again.  I was able to mark the speaker positions on the underside of the carpet that covers the parcel shelf and then remove the carpet so I could cut the holes for the speakers.  Now I'll be able to use that carpet as a template to mark where I need to cut the new metal plates so the speakers will just drop in.   Fortunately, the weather here is supposed to be really nice for most of the next week so I should have plenty of time to do it right before the weather turns nasty again.  Simple project?  NOT!!!  It's turned out to be a complicated mess!

I'm guessing he wants a working seat?   The only magic other than vinyl tailored to fit  and a decent shape on the seat bottom foam is the metal cap at the top of the seat back, I think I have a spare in the collection.   But nothing to use as is.

If he's going through Amarillo it's a fun trip on the back roads from Amarillo to Raton, NM.

Cheers,

Jim, Diana and not-so-MiniMe James.

Hi, fellow Miniacs.  I received the following message today and was wondering if any of you might be able to help him:

Hi I’m a member of MOTR, Minis of the Rockies.   

I’m flying to San Antonio this Saturday to collect a 1990 Rover Mini Mayfair I recently bought.  The car is decent but it’s missing a rear seat and I thought I might enquire and see if anyone between San Antonio north through Lubbock and Amarillo might have one to sell.

I pickup the car Sunday and I’m off Monday morning, after getting some new tires installed, back to Denver.  We’ll be spending Monday night in Amarillo.

If you could post and ask on your forum I would appreciate any leads.

Cordially,
Tom Woodward

1990 Mini Mayfair “Shakes"
2006 MINI R50 “Skeeter'
2011 MINI R57 “BB*
2015 MINI r60 “Olaf”

Thanks a bunch.
John

Cleaning out the closet in my office and found two large stacks of Mini magazines.  Handy for repair, maintenance, or modifications. Come get -‘em.  I live in Lucas.

Back on here (the Rover's back up and going, 18 months later)!  I've seen your Mini up and happily rolling about recently.  What'd it turn out to be?
Bearings hubs, C/V joints and boots.. a total rebuild. 🤷‍♂️

Yes, welcome back!
What a crazy few years it's been. Hopefully the end it in sight but... Huh Had Matchbox out today for a quick spin around the neighborhood and as usual, it put a smile on my face. I hope you all are doing well.
