In the next week or two

Coming thick and fast

What do we think to make sure the Safe-T turbo fit - bonnet bulge? - extended front? - clearance holes cut through the rads?

 

... or was the whole redesign of the rad pack to gain an inch a few episodes ago all part of the cunning plan?!?

 

"if it ain't 10' long it ain't a Mini"

 

And will the final colour be revealed?

I have gone through all the episodes again, can't seem to find a oil cooler for the gearbox anywhere

Check out the engine build episode. The oil filter mount has a coolant sandwich plate connection so the coolant rad cools the oil too :)

...and I wonder if the BRG coolant pipe colour was significant?

My theory is that they'll go with white, partly to keep it original (!), but also to match the eponymous horse. It also has a bit of a race car vibe. I think the pastel greys and greens are a bit of a nod to original Mini engine bay details. Watch me now be proved completely wrong and a Barbie-pink/ metallic grape monstrosity emerge from the paint shop. The suspense is a killer.
