Gen 3 Mild Project! Not going crazy.

Recommended Posts

So, lost the bug with my R53. 

 

It got pulled away for scrap a few weeks back. I couldn't resist a new one so picked an F56 JCW. Blown away by the quality of the car over an R53. Still i do feel the R53 was m much more fun but it just guzzled fuel.

So I've picked it up, Bought from Cooper Teesside. I had an email asking if there service was 10/10. Well, it was far short on collection day and I've let them know.

Ive already bought all the Genuine b;lack line trims to replace all the chrome. Then it will be black mirrors and roof. Holiday in a few weeks too so once that is out the way ill be lowering and changing the wheels.

 

For now ill not be going mad, unfortunately growing up slightly and having  a family has its restrictions on massive car spending!!!! 

 

Ill be attending as many Meets as i can in the future, owning a MINI for the past 12 year  most of my mates now come from MINI's so i need to get back in to enjoying cars and have a little me time with cars an friends at the weekends!

Nice Motor Scot, you’ll get your stamp on it soon enough. 

I know what you mean about family life and family needs but it will not stop the craving to go all out !

 

it’ll be good to catch up and see where you go with this one

Your both right 😂 Today I’ve bought some all weather JCW Mats as the cheap rubbish mini have our in are bin worthy. 

 

Also, sold more parts so that equals funds for this car. Going for a set springs at first so tonight I’ll be looking for those!

I almost bought a set of springs last  night for immediate lows but then cancelled the order! I'm unsure what to do just yet. this car will never be tracked so its just going to be something i want slightly lower, i can't be chewed with parking issues, speed bump;s etc so I'm looking for 30mm max!

I saw an F56 with 20mm spacers, they helped fill the arch’s nicely and no rub either 🤷🏻‍♂️

Ive got 10mm spacers to go on I just need bolts but I’ll probably do it all in 1 go once I order suspension! Dying to just order them but it will probably cause WW3 😂

I feel I might here the phrase “it’s always been that low” or “it’s always been like that” being said soon. I’d do it quick, before there is too much photographic evidence 😂

I’ve got some one interested in the last few parts from my R53.. which in turn means funds for coil overs in the next week I hope. 

 

Managed to machine polish half the car yesterday. Still need the time and weather to do the rest! 

 

So so I’m about a weeks time, it should be lowered with all chrome removed! 

 

Im getting a divorce 😂

Spacers delivered. Full dechrome trim delivered, 

 

JCW Rubber matts, belt line kit, bumper decals, pressed plates. Carbon door handles on the way. 

 

Looking at the ST X Coilovers as they are made by KW and I’ll have no reason to adjust them once fitted!

I really thought the unwelcome greeting I got from your wife when collecting parts was due to me turning up early. I now know it was you and your Mini addiction and spending too much money.
