    Hoovie and Ninja blaming the weather that's out of everyone's hands for delays. Meanwhile, I had people blaming me for delays on jobs.
    I've had 2 MINI's, one Cooper, and the one I still have is a Clubman. Traded the MINI S for a wrecked SS HHR and blown MINI Clubman. Did a complete powertrain swap from the MINI/BMW stuff to the GM LNF Turbo I4 + manual with LSD. Was a project to say the least and I was probably (most certainly) better off just getting a running SS HHR, or even a Scion xB, but it's a great little "panel van"-esque style wagon thing.

    Nose coming off is easy in a northern climate because all the bolts are corroded with the salt and snap off ! BMW down spec'd all the bolts as a cost cutting measure because if this type of major repair was needed it would be out of warranty and no one in their right mind would contemplate BMW shop prices..🤣🤣🤣🤣

    I used to work at this shop in Medford oregon when I was 19 years old. 11 years ago. There was only me and one other guy that worked on the cars. We did r and r work. The owner only did transmission rebuilds. He could whip them out super fast so he was mostly out looking for more customers or picking up parts. Well me and the other guy which was his younger brother. We were working on this mitsubishi 3000gt. It was pile. We had gotten a replacement engine to swap and we pulled the engine and swapped a junk yard one back in in two hours. I can't remember how long it was supposed to take but will never forget that we yanked it out and put a new one in completely in two hours. Now it woulda took longer by myself. But this was two people pulling stuff off at once. It turned out to be a shit engine anyway so it wasn't worth it. But I still can't believe how fast we got it done. Shit it took me an hour the other day just to pull my radiator out of my Suzuki aerio. The average person probably couldn't get that mini cooper engine out in 3 or 4 hours but when you do that everyday and have done hundreds. He coulda got it done in a hour if it went all right. But sometimes you have hangups like seized bolts and shit that won't come apart. Or studs or bolts that snap. I love working on cars. I love watching anything and everything about cars. Honestly it's a very good skill to learn. Even if it's just simple things. Most people run thier car into the ground because they think it's to complicated but really when you learn what a car is and what an engine does and the parts that make it work then you can almost apply it to every vehicle.
