    (Hopefully I'm starting a trend with this thread)

    I ordered a new vanity plate for the MINI. Now just gotta wait 3-6 weeks :mad2:

    Tonight- going to a local mini, MINI gathering at DQ :thumbsup:

    Ohh, I bought a AAA + Membership for it too.

    I received a Scoop Saver from OutMotoring, which I will apply on Wednesday shortly after I get my new scoop installed at the dealer. After which, my R56 will be out of warranty.

    I had the A/C bearing issue fixed under warranty. Then I enjoyed my 28.5 mile commute to work. :thumbsup:

    Now, if you asked what I did on Sunday then: I went tracking at Willow Springs International Raceway and set a new personal best record. :cornut:

    I made an appointment with the dealer to get my first 'official' oil change and servicing on Bedivere. I'm curious to see what they'll have for me as a loaner while they have him.

    I made two metal brackets to attach to my light bar for my grill badges. They look something like what MM made, but I did not have a CAD drawing, or any of his fancy tools. I just beat the heck out of them on a vice to get them right.

    Then I made a box with a louvered top for my new amp to reside in. Paint is drying as I type.

    I also motored to the hardware store, not once, but twice. It is so much fun, now that all four wheels are pointing in the same direction. :D

    Now, before the "picture thingie" goes up, I will take them when both are done and mounted. :thumbsup:

    I got up at 4:35( couldn't actually fall back to sleep) and took the new ride up the twisty road to the top of the mountain and back. What a beautiful way to start the day!

    I weighed mine. 2640lbs with a full tank and I've taken +70lbs off with a rear seat gone and Konig Britelites with non-RFs. :biggrin5:

    I ordered a vanity plate, installed a Craven Speed stubby antenna and an Auto-up circuit.

    Massaging my budget to see if I can order a rear sway bar and/or a few other parts (euro parcel shelf, pulley kit, 'top commander' module)...
