Check out Cooperflags.com if you haven't already. They can also do custom designs, pretty much anything you could think of.

I have the Shelby stripes on my MCS. Bonnet only for now but am probably going to add the roof and boot as well.

That yellow cooper is so sick, that is exactly what I am looking for, what was the cost on that? And where was it done?

I went for the Uni stripe with pin stripe look. I had seen variations of it before, but never liked the proportions, so I made my own, and got it done and installed at a local sign shop. Turned out to be their first MINI, and biggest nightmare--trying to get the stripe to lie flat over the center bulge, so they worked on it for 3 days ( brought it back each time), and they tried about 5 times before getting it. That's called determination! They did a fantastic job!

The stripes were $69 and come pre-cut, no trimming to do around the scoop. It was done in my garage by a college kid who used to work for a sign shop. It took him about 30 minutes to do the job. Looks great up close as well as far away, very nice install job.

I had these made from 3M Auto tape they look stock however the actually wrap around the underside of the hood to give it a cleaner appearence.

Note they are black with a metalic pinstripe. Cost was $ 40.00 and 20 min of work.

The paintball gun is a Carter Machiene Stock Class pump in Electric Blue and Chrome Cost $700.00 Had to have it. Its not everyday you see an "Electric Blue Paintball Gun" that matches your Mini

The place you got them installed did they remove the old bonnet stripes? Or did you not have any before hand. Mine are still on there at the moment do you guys think the shop could take em off?
