    Default Not so "mini" Mini meet at ours today

    Thanks to Dean, Ian & Jan, Bob, Khalid, Dez and Dave (Hyperhart) for their company and help today, it was a lot of fun.

    Quite a lot achieved during the day.

    I fitted Dez's new lights for him and with a little help from Dean (because I'd never fitted a set before) fitted his HIDs at the same time.

    Dean & I checked Bob's rear suspension out as he's been getting some knocking noises and play, to find out he needs his rear upper control arms replacing as the outer bushes had gone.

    Bob and Khalid worked their magic on my car, washing it and D/a'ing the boot to get rid of the marks from last weeks de-badging and then whilst we were looking at Bob's car, Khalid got the polish out and disappeared round my car for ages, polishing and cleaning just about everything in sight.

    Dez washed his car with some help from Bob.

    Last but by no means least Dean (with minimal help from me), changed my rear brake discs and pads (which I've been meaning to get done for months lol), unfortunately due to a few seized things, it took us rather longer than planned and it was pitch black by the time we'd finished.

    Amy laid on a full roast beef dinner with all the trimmings followed by home made apple pie and home made trifle for all attendees which went down very well indeed. Many thanks also to Jan for helping Amy whilst we were outside.

    I took a few pics, but not many as I didn't have much time to, will post later.

    Thanks guys, was a really fun day

    cheers for the invite .... it was an epic day - headlights much better on the way home ....but no radio reception as the HIDS seem to be interfering with it so email sent to supplier and i'll await a reply ..... hopefully sortable and its only when driving .....
