Just the running lights during a sunny day.
Beautiful car - Nice job on the tinting! I've tried that and just ended up with a mess. Any tricks to make it look so good?

start from the center of the light and work your way out. Patience and a little but of help from a heat gun go a long way.

My 2012 MCC

Got her a new pair of shoes Enkei YS5 17x8 wrapped in an Indy 500 Firehawk 205/45/R17. I also got calipers painted red with MINI in black on them. I also am thinking of doing a res delete. The only other thing I want for her is either coils or lowering springs.

Looks awesome, did you use a kit? or? How'd you do the headlight washers? I couldn't find a piece for it.

The headlight rings and grill trim are OEM. I just used plasti dip for the washers. I was hesitant putting the flat-ish plasti dip next to the gloss black but it’s not noticeable. The Beltline is the flat black tape from Outmotoring. Door handles and gas door are caps from Outmotoring. The scuttles and emblems are plasti dipped as well. I’m going to plasti dip my windshield sprayers as well when I get around to it just to freshen them up a bit. I also plasti dipped my fender lights as well. You can still see a halo of light around them at night. Pretty pleased with how it all turned out.

Been a while since I posted here... Here's my 2009 Justa R55 with her goofy light setup. As I've said before, when the parts store hands you lemons, you make limeade.

For some reason that I don't know, there's no image but a "forbid" sign in your photo. I was curious to see what your goofy setup is.

Newest update: Moved lights down and plate over to a tow hook mount. Looks much better than previous.
