    I’ve been enjoying being out and about in the Mini. I’ve put about 2000 miles on this season already. 

    Here’s hoping to more.

    I think this completes the Saaab welding saga. Crumbly bit under the battery tray that would have been much easier to fix while I had other bits chopped out.
    View is looking down on the OSF inner wing

    Cut out 

    Test fitting one half of the repair 

    Weld that on...

    And make a small patch for the other bit

    Underneath 

    bit of tidying and paint and it can be MoT'd

    adw1977 reacted to Skcat in SKcats fleet, Montego madness!   
    After almost a month of only having the one car I went out and got this;



    A 1994 (rover) montego countryman estate. It's a O-series which is rarer,  most the estates I see come up now are diesels. It must be one of the last o-series engines ever fitted, I can't think of a later car that had that engine.
    Picked it up on Thursday and went on a trip for the weekend with zero prep work or checks. 
    Even went over a chain ferry which was odd. 

    The car seems good, I need to look at the blower motor but from the look of the stack of paperwork it's not worked since 2000. It's possible the dash needs to be removed and no owner has had the confidence too do so yet.
    Windows, original radio, sunroof (although very slow), both mirrors and switchgear all work. 
    The rear doors Don't work on the central locking, I will need to take the cards off and even see if they have solenoids.
    The tailgate loom is damaged so everything electrical in the tailgate does not work. 
    Unfortunately the rear wheel arches are full of filler as is the lip of the tailgate. Will require some surgery and maybe some donor panels to sort it out, seems to be the way with these cars. A little bit of the boot floor also needs cutting out. Will need to inspect everything further. 
    The shocks are a bit crap so it bounces around a lot on the road. I'm having a hard time figuring out what shocks I need to buy for it.
    It returned around 38mpg. I was probably doing between 60-75mph most the time. If you guys want some a photo of anything ask me. I need to give it a clean up though. 
    We even came across another montego on our travels. Just the other type, the driver did not seem as interested in us as we were as him and his car!
