Free Installs by MiniDoMore at the Dragon 08

Mini Do More is planning to be a sponsor at Minis on the Dragon 08 again this year and this year we are planning to do free installs if there is enough interest to warrant bringing the tools for trailer hitches and wiring kits that are pre-ordered and scheduled prior to the event! We will be completing installations on Thursday, May 1st and if there is enough interest on Wednesday April 30th and Friday, May 2nd. We can do up to 5 installs each day. So, if you've always wanted a trailer hitch but don't know where to have it installed or are afraid to try it yourself, let us do it for you. Please send us a PM with your interest and visit our site for pricing. www.MiniDoMore.com

That is a deal! I will take advantage of that offer, hope you get enough people to sign up to make it worth while.

Have you discovered yet if (for a '05) this lines up with fog light hole for the aerokit back bumper skin? If so I'd be very interested.

Yes, it does line up. Do you have a rear fog light? If so, you need an extra long drawbar, otherwise our drawbar kit will work fine without a fog light.

Awesome! Yes, have a rear fog light. Here's one guy that'd like to purchase and do a install on site. Hope there's enough to do it, I'll be arriving Monday and there through the whole MOTD...

I am interested as well, and I've got a question too:

I've got the 2007 S (w/fogs)
Do you have any photos of the modified rear valance and cut standard valance so I can do a side-by-side comparison of the two looks?

I'm still torn as to whether the tow or the roof rack is the way to go, since I have no storage for a trailer (I live without a garage), but am not exactly tall enough to do much with a roof model. So, I am still waffling, what's the cut off for ordering?

The modified rear valence and the cut standard are the same thing. You have a choice on the 2007, you can modify the valence yourself, using our instructions OR we can send you one already modified.

Here are a few shots of it.

Missed you guys!!

I hate I didn't know about you guys when I bought my 07 Cabrio. I had the 's-link' installed for the bike rack. Although I'm not real fond of the rack itself, I guess the functionality of it works as intended. I definitely like the hitch mounted flat bike racks better. Oh well.....

See you guys in Fontana!!!

Sorry guys, we just don't have enough interest to bring the tools down to do installs. We will try again next year. We will still be there displaying products, though!

How many would it take? I'm in.
Come on, everybody.
Or, if getting it installed is not in the cards, will you sell me a hitch there that I can hopefully get someone else to install?

Man, just saw this thread.... no hitch installs? Perhaps I can buy one and just do the install myself.

I'll call and get a price.

They are really not that hard to install. Can't remember just how long since I did several other mods that weekend too. On a 1-10 scale , about a 5. Quaiffe is a 10

Since I own two bodyshops, I'm sure I can pull a rear bumper and install it.... hopefully.

I pulled the front bumper today to install a set of fog lamps (bling lights) and didn't like the way they were going to fit.

If the rear bumper is anywhere as easy as the front bumper was... it shouldn't take more than 40-45 minutes to install.

Obviously you are not using the Mitchell book on that estimate! LOL

The directions were very good. Couple of the fasteners were kinda hidden, no real prob to do.

Thanks for the pics. Forget the damn hitch... I absolutely LOVE the color of your car. That was the color I originally wanted...

Oh yeah, back to bumpers. I haven't even looked at the rear bumper. The front one was so ridiculously easy, I just assumed (and we all know where that's going....lol) that the rear bumper was as easy.

Guess I'll find out soon enough. I want one of those hitches....

Thanks,

Mark

I'll have a display that will work with your car (looks like an MCSc) that I can sell you on Saturday. If Way can work you in on Saturday or Sunday, it is yours. Takes about 45 minutes or a little longer on the convertible.

Not sure how your schedule is but if you can squeeze me in on Saturday, I'll be there. Let me know if that works for you and how much.

Brent,

Showed up Saturday. Saw a note that said "this table is unmanned and if you need something, leave a sticker(?) or something on a scavenger card...

I dunno, my buddy and I read the note 3-4 times and couldn't make sense of it.

Still want to sell me a demo? How much and how much shipping to 28079?

Thanks,

Mark
