Here a couple shots of the exhaust system. Ill be adding the tips once its installed on the car. I want the best alignment possible with the new rear aero bumper.


A little more work to the hood also today. Its been awhile since ive done body work and its taking a bit to come back to me LOL.

I ordered a car cover for the other clubman i have sitting outdoors. I couldn't believe how small they vacuumed that thing down. I think ive found the reason why it wont turn over. There was an inch of ice on the passenger floor 🙄. Looks like footwell module flooded damb!!!

Slowly getting more done on the car. The new aero kit has been painted sparkling silver and the hood vent and fenders Mini jet black. I decided to paint the fenders after wrapping one in high glass black. I really like the mini jet black and the wrap just seemed to scratch easily. I've also got the main part of the exhaust installed. I just need to have the bumper on to weld up the tips for alignment. I've got a new trailer hitch put on it also to pull my small boat to the cottage. Lastly I've taken the headlights apart and painted them jet black and installed green halos inside the projector lenses.


Cant see the halo. Im a little concerned about the heat of the headlight affecting to LEDs.






Starting point

Finished bumper


Hood vents


New black side markers.

Can,t wait to see the finished car. Maybe I missed it but what is the deal with the hood scoop? If you need another project down the road I be happy to drop off my 2017 Clubby for some improvements.

I'm just having fun with this car. The scoop is meant to be over the top LOL. It will house the engine oil cooler with the heated air directed out the rear hood vent. Im retired now and like messing with cars. I've got several other old cars from the 60s and 70s. I wanted one that was like a gokart that also had some semblance of fuel mileage.

Im using 7507 Canbus LED bulb from "Inertia LED" but lately they haven't been responding to my emails for further products so.. however I know the maker "Alla Lighting" makes Canbus Amber LED 7507 bulb (py21w AKA baus15s) that I will be getting in a different version (red) for my rear turn signals. Supposed to be super bright! Inertia's are the ones you see on my build thread.

Getting the rims ready to paint 668 jet black. They were previously painted with plastidip. I dont reccomend that stuff if you want to remove it in the future. It did look good though. The over spray on the back of the rims had to be removed with thinners. I also had to get one welded as it had a crack in the lip. It is quite the ordeal to prep for paint but they will look great when done. Here they are in primer.
