So there hasn't been much to update with the project as of late. Since my last update we worked on getting the entire interior stripped, including all of the sound deadening. If we are going to reach our goal of 2500lbs with driver, then every little bit is going to count.
Once we finished stripping the car, it went over to Reactive Chassis Co. who is building the roll cage for me. Once we get the car back with the cage in it, we can fit the dash back in and then have it made in Carbon Fiber. Also we can then work on getting the seats mounted and braced in the car.
Along the way here, we have been receiving some great parts....
Thought I'd post a couple more pics that Ian took of the Mini when we were out at Dunnville Autodrome last weekend. Check them out!
A couple more pics of Jack! He's getting so big, and yes, he is much cooler than you already. No contest.
This past Sunday I was able to get over to the Finger Lakes Region SCCA Autocross. I had a great time and while I only came in 11th place, I improved greatly throughout the day. I had never autocrossed a rear wheel drive car before, so it took some getting used too! I plan to attend the next one on October 5th, to see how I would do

Some pics from the day:
Can't wait for next time!
