Come forth an Import (German) Silver (ohh rare) Cooper with 17k on the clock.
I like the silver but I always wanted to a two tone mini. So that what was done.
This Car unlike the 30 this is to be a pure SQ car and built to an IASCA/EMMA standard.
First the car interior was Stripped.
Then sound deadening…
And some more.
Then the Boot build/rebuild. I say rebuild as some parts were brought over from the old.
But as you will know no two minis are the same and the original build was done to such tight tolerance that something's were just too big to fit without modification or like the tank cover too small to fit and need to be totally remade.
Items remade: Amp Rack, Tank cover, Processor mounting plate, Top of rear shelf, Face of sub enclosure
Items retained: Fuse/distro holder, Fibreglass sub enclosure, Lower Rear Shelf, Boot base.
Everything to be re-trimmed in Leather or Alcantara.
Once I'd made headway in the boot I turned the attention to the Front Midbass.
Now I thought about doing this for years but never got around to it.
Stainless steel dog Bowls.
Kickpanels were drilled, then cut.
The Bowls mocked up, and then drilled and Riveted in place. The black stuff is Sikaflex Adhesive used for good measure.
