    My 2007 R56 Cooper S

    Strut brace is painted. Thought I’d do it red to carry on the colour theme (did consider black)

    2002 Dark Silver MCS - One for life

    I have continued to restore the underbody and removing rust from exposed brackets and bolts. Conducted an oil and filter change also, out with the old and in with the new. The front bumper mounts taken back to bare metal and painted. Subframe and ARB have been dropped off to be shot blasted with the ARB being powder coated. I have sprayed copious amounts of cavity wax into the box sections. I found 3 either factory or dealer fit shims behind the radiator cowling on the drivers side, why I do not know perhaps some mis-alignment on the front bumper, after removing the rust and painting them I will be putting them back on. A nice pile of rust in the corner. Getting close to re-assembly and installation back on the car, with lots of repainted parts.

    GP3, GP3, GP3...

    New GP3 has been confirmed by MINI! The latest JCW GP will boast over 300bhp, with just 3000 examples being built worldwide, and will be launched in 2020. More updates as they are announced
  15. Hey All. Just to note there is no Durham Mini Show this year 2019. Quite a few people messaging me asking the question and the organisers say this isn't going ahead. We will organise a run out to compensate πŸ‘πŸ»πŸ‘πŸ» Si

    R56 MCS Juddering in 1st gear

    Hi Steve, I've come across your post from last year, and was wondering if the issue you had with your Mini ever get resolved? only I'm experiencing the same syptoms in my R56 MCS.

    That JCW Roadster πŸ”΅

    No not at all. I was sceptical when I first went under the car but the bracing is further forward than the diffuser

    Obviously didn’t get in the way then . nice work
  21. LCWElvin

    That JCW Roadster πŸ”΅

    Thanks Ian 😁 There were extra braces that I don't recall seeing on the underside of the hatch
  22. Kettlepot

    That JCW Roadster πŸ”΅

    It looks spot on there Lewis ! Was there any extra bracing underneath ?
  23. LCWElvin

    That JCW Roadster πŸ”΅

    GP2 Diffuser fitted today. No problems with fitting apart from the lack of undertrays to put the final screw bolts in but the tunnels are secure enough on the hangers πŸ‘πŸ» I loved the look of the rear end but I think it looks even better with the Diffuser on.

    2002 Dark Silver MCS - One for life

    Carrying on slowly with the restoration of the underbody and front subframe components. The subframe and ARB will be getting dropped of at the shot blasting company on Friday which when returned will go through the rust prevention and painting treatment. I have been cleaning, preparing, painting and generally laying on the garage floor under the car in readiness for the subframe being re-installed. I am waiting on multiple small deliveries to get things completed, paint, clips to replace broken and rusted items, oil, oil filter, socket to remove the oil filter housing, Dremel scotchbrite cleaning attachments and temperature aluminium tape. All visible surface rust (visible to me) has been removed with a belt sander, rust treated, zinc primed, seam sealed if needed, painted in stone chip and then top coated, until I ran out of paint. I have been removing rusted seized bolts, wire wheeling them and painting in a high temperature laquer. The general condition was good for a 17 year old car, much different to to the rear end. To complete are the bumper bracket mounts, power steering rack, paint the remaining underbody, paint subframe, paint ARB, paint the front wishbone brackets, put it all back together and then on the car, sounds easy probably about a month in duration though. Some random images or what I have been looking at under the car and the current progress being made.

    Those grills do look 100% better. Fitted one on Dan’s and just looks great. Will be wrapping/painting the centre of the bonnet black behind the grill on his
