I have done my beltline and the front and rear light surrounds. Left the scuttles, door pulls, and gas filler flap.

Looking at the picture did you switch to the JCW rear wing? Mine has the standard wing.

I did switch to the JCW wing. Looks really good in pepper white with the black wing. I had a silver/black on my last JCW with black roof and liked it but would have preferred all black. The one on my WC50 seems more integrated.

OMG! SMASK YOU ARE MY HERO.. I OWE YOU A BEVERAGE OF CHOICE SOMETIME! Yes that excited. I want these wheels so bad but everyone kept saying they do not fit JCW Factory cars. They look just fantastic on your car with the spacers. So meaty. This hands down is the hottest JCW I have ever seen at this point. What a beauty!

I am ordering these up next week and will drop them off to get powder coated white. Where do I get the spacers?

Are you a member of PhillyMini?

Thanks a lot Pocket Rocket! I ordered the wheels through Tire Rack and got the spacers from them.

Figured that out the other day actually. Was actually JackMac that lives in PA.
I ordered my Breytons today and they are being drop shipped to the refinisher in Bath PA where they will be changed to Mini White and have the tires mounted. Thanks for the info.. I have wanted these wheels for a solid year now.

@Pocket_Rocket
Can't wait to see your new wheels in MINI white. Hopefully you'll get them sooner rather than later.

Great minds think alike, but you should really consider STEVIL

And your GTS-R wheels in black are perfect for this car.

Greetings!

WC50 #415 is in North Canton, OH

We are a 3-Mini family with my sons each having one, and the WC50 is my enjoyment. We cruised part of MTTS last year and I will be doing the Blue Ridge Parkway Tour in June. Look forward to meeting more of you there.

If we ever get any sun in northeast Ohio, I'll post a pic. Don't hold your breath, it may be July before we see any.

Steve

SMASK: Did you need longer bolts to bolt up the Breytons since you had to use a spacer? If so can you let me know where you got them?
I am hoping the stock bolts work because I am supposed to pick up my wheels tomorrow.

All MINI R5x cars are 4x100, hub centric

Was wondering, is the white roof of the WC50 more towards a creamish off white aka pepper white, compared to the regular white roofs on regular models?
