New clutch kit and lightened flywheel arrived today from @Tarmac@TarmacSportz along with the upgraded Slave, Braided line and fluid.

What a lovely bit of kit.

 

Also some new rear number plate LED units, and enough stickers to start my own Tarmac Sportz brand :lol:

 

I'm not planning on taking pics at the moment as it's all boxed up.  But let me know if anyone does want pics of the kit.

Bit more work done today.

 

New Y-Pipe installed by my local longlife.  Great work again by them.

In the second picture you can see they had to remove the flange on the end of the cats.  They called me over to take a look and the flanges were pretty much dust.  I poked the one and it started to fall apart.  So they cut them off, welded some short pipe on so then the new Y-Pipe would slip on.

When / if I go for Hi-flow cats, they've already said they'll help me out with that.

 

Sorry, I don't know why it's uploading sideways.  It's not like that on my PC.

Had a Long life cat back exhaust made for our Mini almost 10 years ago here in Manchester.

Gorgeous finish still looking good to this day.

The lifetime warranty gives that extra peace of mind too.

Well I've made it to Belgium with only one casualty.

Looks like the cover from under the gearbox has dropped (from when the clutch ans fly where changed) and I ended up dragging it from Calais to Ghent.  Nothing I could do about it last night.

 

Looks like there is a garage just up the road from the hotel so I'm going to pop there to just get it taken off.  It can always be replaced later.

 

Not sure why it came off.  Either it wasn't fitted back properly, it broke, or I caught it on a nasty pothole at one of the service stations. 

Is what it is though, only some plastic.

Few more from the road trip today.

Car's been faultless.

 

Every single image I've uploaded is sideways.  Sorry, but blame the forum as they're fine on my PC :shrug:

Also have a time-lapse of today drive, though the first render didn't come out well.1314183093_Screenshot_20221002-221027_TomTomGO.jpg.2a687b8689614490d088f46427a73bf7.jpg
