Very nice, but did they forget to stripe the boot?

It appears so...haha...not sure... I'll have to ask why they didn't do the boot. I'm taking it in on Friday to get the roof wrapped in red and probably changing the white stripes to a grey/black checkered stripe to match the JCW Pro red/grey/black mirror covers I picked up the other day.

Yep. looks darn good! But, IMO you should have either stopped the stripes at the top of the Grill or continued it all the way down on the rear. Just my opinion, and as you know, everybody's got one.

Thanks.

Minnie...stripes were custom made and installed by the dealer. Kudos to Todd at Baron MINI in Kansas City.

Vet...appreciate the feedback...it's all good. Truth be told I referenced your car for ideas on my setup.

Well, I appreciate the complement. Took me a long time before I settled on the design. I actually considered the checks myself at one time. Looks like you picked a winner.
Now you need to turn that chrome grill bar red.

Hello, I picked up my girl in September and have made a few changes. First was a personalized plate, orange metallic stripes (to match my other car) replaced the chrome light trim with black (headlights and taillights) and added mud flaps front and back. We want to wrap the mirrors in the orange but need to find so.eo e to do this for us. We tried but we sucked at it. I am working at dechroming as much as I can, received a few more parts today. What do you think?

Mini- really digging the blacked-out side scuttle thing! Reminds me of the carbon side strakes on an Audi R8... except on our little FWD Mini. Wonder how it would look on my white car... hmmm, glossy or matte...

Thanks! I went with matte just because of scratches on glossy vinyl. Plus in the summer when I put spray wax on it, it sines up nicely

That made me laugh. We had a crazy stretch of weather. I golfed outside 6 days ago!! It was 57 degrees. I moved to Minnesota after living in Texas for 10 years. If I can do it, she can too!
