Quote from: MiniDave on November 19, 2016, 11:16:16 AMI think the guys that did the restoration did NOT do the radio and fog light install....and yes, we both laughed about the absurdity of a radio in a Mini, but he wants it wired so it will come on with the key off - so I guess you can hear it then ;DRan into another issue with the steering column. The older shafts used a felt bushing at the bottom, the newer ones use a plastic bushing but - the outer column has a ridge inside (I think to keep the felt from riding up the column) and the new plastic bush will not go past this internal ridge. My guess is I either need to take a die grinder and remove it or send the new shaft out and have the lower part machined to match the old one and use a new felt bush. Since the owner has a lathe in his company I'm thinking we'll do that.
