    It only took me three years to get around to setting up my garage entry. :rolleyes:

    Which is especially bad since it was pretty much just copy-and-paste from the blog.

    I'm pathetic.

    I've enjoyed your blog - even have the link in my MINI favorites folder - and have shared some of your solutions with rookie posters looking for solutions. You set a pretty high benchmark for you-a-fying a MINI.

    I see an Optima Ted Top. Racing seats going in?


    Or did you loose a penny?

    Red top has been there a while.
    Yes, seats, when they get here. But something else first.

    Subwoofer or rear seat delete.

    But a kegarator would fit nicely back there, and that's what I'm voting for.

    You're going to have to change this line in the garage description:

    "I just realized that pretty much the only things that are still "stock" are the seats and the pistons/rods/crankshaft and the stereo."

    He's gone to the dark side. It's a nitrous tank.
