Yes, and yes it stayed put. Nil concerns so far, I'll be keeping a close eye on it though

Lloyd Mini have a delightful one in their Blackpool branch. Unfortunately my pockets aren't deep enough for the 20k they're asking for it

So....The search for a low mileage jcw clubman at reasonable money hasn't gone well, really badly in fact. On a more positive note we have found a 2011 S with only 25k on it bang on budget. If all goes to plan it should be with us in time for the metrocentre meet :)

I bought a set of black mirror caps before the finance was even confirmed lol. There will be an initial dechroming of the beltline and grille surround. After that I'm not sure, I may be after a decat at some point. What have you got?

Anybody got a pair of black second gen mirror caps knocking about doing nothing (none powerfold)? I'd prefer tipping a member some cash rather than going to ebay :)

Mirror caps 2.1 are now in place on the Clubman and looking sweet. Ordered a big roll of 3M scotchcal striping tape for the beltline, but as it has to come from America when it'll arrive is anybodys guess. Also have some trusty Lamin-x on its way for the rear lights :)

It's 5/8 inch beltline tape specifically for automotive use with oem spec glue, it won't shrink (apparently). I've ordered a 150 foot roll

Is it mega flexible too? The part I hate wrapping is the rear quarter panel trims, the way it folds around the corner, but also slightly upwards

5/8 of an inch or 16mm. I've sent a load of emails off to suppliers to see if they'll ship to the UK. Hopefully I'll get some responses today
