|There's a thermostat in here|
|A Mini-qualified mechanic|
He spent most of his time on his bicycle, ably demonstrating his new two-wheeled skill and generally staying close by. He was rummaging around the garage and found a stash of old Mini parts, one them being a head. For some reason he was fascinated with it so I set him up with some tools and showed him how to remove the thermostat housing and heater valve.
It kept him busy for a while and he got a sense of accomplishment using the hand tools to take something apart. He even got some souvenir greasy hands in the deal.
I hope his parents are ready to find disassembled appliances in their house.
