With now just under two weeks to go, its all systems go to get Timmy back on the road. We knew at the beginning that there was quite a lot of work to do, but I think even Joe underestimated the work there was to get him ready for such a big trip. With lists that just seemed to keep getting amended as more parts were thought of, it seemed to be a harder challenge then we first thought to get him ready in time. Parcel after parcel of car parts arrived as more items were needed, and after a trek round the M25 to Mini Spares, the boot was soon filled with goodies!

Here are some pictures of Timmys' progress:

Back in!

But HOORAY as I am typing this I can hear Timmy just being started up in the garage! All seems to be working and Joe is very pleased wahoo!
