Bit if nostalgia today at Northwich Swapmeet. I'd been umming and aaahing about whether the make the Mini Super build electric, or go all nostaligic and fit here with the same PAW diesel that the original was fitted with all those years ago.
Anyway, there on the table today was a PAW 15 RC diesel - said it was unrun, but I'm not certain - but certainly in good order. The chap was happy with a lower offer than that he had marked up and seconds later I was holding a diesel for the first time in many a year.
The die is cast, the Mini Super shall be a diesel model - it's now a question of either rediscovering the joy of covering in dope and nylon, or checking for a film alternative. Maybe Profilm is diesel proof?
