Finally as clean as I like. Mostly.

It’s taken a solid week. A solid week of scraping, huffing goof off and more time with a hot air gun than a professional hair stylist. And, the results of that time spent are finally what I expect from my car. It’s not perfect. At least, not yet. I have…

I'm due for a rant. This is me catching up on all of the complaints about the R56.

Before reading any further, please note that our boy, db, has yet to read the owners manual of his 2008 MINI Cooper. He swears he’ll get to it, but for now, you get this rant. We tried to stop him. Ed. There was really something about the first…

Body kit installed, stripes removed, lizard 6 removed. Photos after the jump!

This is as far as I have gotten with the clean up. So far, the stripes are gone, as is one of the lizards from the roof. If you are curious, it’s the 6 that I have removed, the 9 still remains. I think. What you are seeing above is the culmination of 6…

Gabe from motoringfile says that painted arches are like Tom Selleck without a mustache. On this car I think it looks pretty nice.

Because people keeping asking me. Here is a tl;dr version.

2 months into 2015 and I’m on my third month of keeping my body weight at or under 220 pounds. Pretty sure that means I’m right on track where I need to be to maintain it, and with the weather improving, I expect to get more time on the bike to help reach…

The MINI has a name.

Finally a name (you say)! Yep (I say). Of course I understand it has been more than a week, but let me ask you; how long did it take you to come up with a name for your child? For your pet? It wasn’t something that happened immediately I’m guessing,…

A few pictures of the new, unamed so leave me alone about it, MINI.

While out in Quartzite this passed weekend, I was able to get some shots of my, as not yet named so stop effing asking, new MINI. Including the roof graphics. Once the weather warms up, all vinyl is coming off of this car (possibly including the tint) and…

I know. I'm really worried about that and the paint under the stripes. Worse case I have to get it re sprayed. I hope it doesn't come to that.

The Shredded Pork recipe. This one is super simple, you should try it!

Carnitas. Pulled Pork Sandwiches. Pork for whatever you want. This is a simple, flexible and delicious recipe that you should really enjoy! The best part is this is a slow cooked recipe. You can do it in your slow cooker or Dutch oven on low heat. ###…

A few notes about the new guy, a bit more than 1 week in.

After a solid week, I’m confident in my decision to buy this MINI. Sure, he is not perfect, but overall a solid runner. As you will hear in the next episode of [White Roof Radio](http://www.whiteroofradio.com), I am still coming to grips with the size of…
