Couple of small mods to the interior. Gloss black interior handles and glovebox button covers added 😉 Carrying on along the road to killing all chrome 😁

New part to go with the rear seat delete once I get the chance to start doing it. Strut brace to be painted asap 👍🏻

Exterior mod to be added soon when I find a grill. Anyone got one? 😉 Thinking of maybe doing something to the vents before fitting them 🤔

They'll look great when they're on! 

 

You can get the grilles brand new from MINI on eBay for not a lot of £££

Can’t wait to fit them, but they’ll look a bit different when I’m done 😁

 

Found a grill on ebay but it was for 2010-2012

I'm sure you'll put your own personal twist on them! Looking forward to seeing the finished product. 

 

I got mine from there.. I wonder if they have stopped selling them

They might just need to relist them. I’m always on ebay so should find one soon 🤞🏻 As soon as all done photos will be posted 😉

New grill arrived today from Mini Park Lane London ( through ebay store ). Trial fitted the ducts. Hopefully looks good when fitted in the bumper. Waiting on something else to arrive too, for the bumper

Quick easy mod done this morning. New tow strap and adapter. Need to get another cap to cut a hole in to hide the hole in the bumper

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

Decided to fit my rear seat delete today. I trimmed most of it indoors thanks to the help of @Mr Watton and his photos. Only needed small amounts of final trimming once I come to fit it in the Mini

When I had finished the fitting of my seat delete, I fitted my rear strut brace. I had to trim/cut the rear boot trim to allow the strut brace brackets some room. Thinking of something to hide the gap/brackets maybe. My boot needs tidying up but had to take photos straight away 😂

Got a set of 17 inch Fox Racing wheels off my eldest lads R53 Cooper S (Dan). They’ll do as Spring wheels. Team Dynamics will be back on once I’ve repainted them for the Summer 👍🏻

New uprated front discs to be fitted very soon. Should help reduce brake fade 👍🏻

Some EBC pads should help too 😁

I went with Pagid discs and pads. Will see how they perform. If not it will be EBC 👍🏻

I'd be intrigued to see what you think! I'm contemplating some higher rated pads for mine. Not that there is anything wrong with the stock Brembo ones I just fancy a bit more braking force

Thought I’d try something different and see what the results are like. Plus its a bonus when you only pay half price for them 😉

Got myself a set of headlights that have had the chrome inners painted black-saves me making a mess doing them 😂 Will get better photos once cleaned the Mini again.

What colour are you going for with the calipers? Or is it a surprise? 🤪

They will be red to match my rear calipers. But I have been thinking of a different colour-going red though for now. 

 

There is a secret mod getting done in 2 weeks hopefully. The Mini will look different than it is now 🤔🤣
