You've all seen it in Rich's thread, thought it was about time i made my own!

Was like this when i went to collect off Rich:

It then got chequered and tinted up (tints arn't my thing, but i don't have a garage to use every night and it hides away the rear nicely)

Recaro's and a Sparco wheel got slapped in

New plates, although i took them off as they arn't true German style as Ebay described! Stickered up to the max (notice the Pony ;) )

Thats where i am for now. No doubt more mods to come. The chequers are now off and most of the stickers are gone now.

Future plans:

Headliner is out, will be covering in something, but thats a secret

Proper vinyl for the roof, not duct tape! Similar sized patter though, in yellow and purple

Wheels might be getting sprayed if i feel up to it. Might follow the purple/yellow scheme?

Mirrors will be re-painted. Either matt black or purple.

Drop the front a little more, i'm sure i see empty thread on the coilie :)

Will probably think of more when i get bored..

Havn't in the 4months i've had them so far, and that includes being pulled over by a traffic officer, and they didn't say a word. Until they say take them off, they're staying put for now.

Whenever I see back tints I always think there is something worth having out of the car that the owner doesn't want you to know about.

i like the front bumper smooth... but can you get the bit above it to line up a bit better? it looks like its over hanging

It was, one of the previous owner snapped all the clips. Ive glued it down now as you can see here:

Got bored at Mini in the park today which lead to this...

And finally, the two pony wagons. Mini came out to have a new engine :)

It would, but i'm not a fan of the smoothed bumper and de-badged grill look. Looks too plain, which i don't like the smoothed boots. I'm looking into smoothed out indicators, so when that comes around, i may look into the de-badged grill.

Cheers for the comments so far.

I agree, regretted smoothing the bumper AND putting the badgeless grille on my old 1.4S

Loving how this is coming along mate

Cheers mate.

Chequers on the bonnet will be coming off after this evenings Ace Cafe meet, and the car will be getting machine polished late this week/early next ready for Revenge cruise (which is now in Dunstable of all places!), Edition and Trax.

Headliner should be back in within the week, will be leaving it un-covered for now as i can't fully make up my mind!

Pretty sure the sub box has cracked after hitting a pothole on the way from the Ace this evening :(

Will investigate at some point, and if that's the case it will either all come out, or it will be walled (depending on the cash and whether or not I get my own flat soon!)

But Pony's arn't.

Looks as if its just the top board that has cracked, and come away from the actual box. Thank god for that! I couldn't quite believe it when it happened, how the hell the box could crack! But it sounded aweful on the way home, with rattles and cracking everywhere!
