Nice work! You might want to switch to fanblade around though, as it on the wrong way.

maybe this is the way of the future?  kinda like the tattoo shop down the block from my office,  they moved a couple blocks away last year and more than doubled their space. why?  they needed it for tattoo removal which is now their biggest money maker.

Some of you folks may remember my plea for information late last summer with returning a botched VTEC conversion to original.   With Steve's (Coopertune) help and advice and assistance, Gary took his car back and drove it for the first time in about 4 years.   Steve upgraded the engine and tranny and built us a new subrame and suspension.   I welded back in all the whacked out panels, grill opening and front sheet metal and grappled with the butchered wiring harness to get it back to its happy place.   Little car runs really strong (thanks for the new cam Steve      

I know it was quite controversial that I was doing this but Gary is more than happy to have his little Mini back and on the road again.  

Once again, thanks Steve for all of the help, advise, answers and especially the friendship that we have formed!!!   Look forward to meeting some of you in Columbus later this summer    We plan to be there with our little red car
