After much fiddling the heater has been cleaned, new matrix fitted and plumbed up!



What was a bit strange though is that i named the Mini Crystal and in the depths of the heater which was sealed up by 20 screws was............ well a Crystal?!?! Strange!






Next up is a groggy 998 engine bay in need of some cleaning! I still havent decided if to paint the engine, satin black, red (1275) or the original 998 yellow?





colour options:

Lovely looking mini.

How weird about the crystal.

Personally paint it red to match interior.
