Well then you are stuck 8) I think a mk2 retro look will be cool, and mean you could keep the grill:P

I think 10' rose petal wheels, archless and a mk2 (mk1) boot lid. Maybe even the badges as well!

i keep seeing your sig and thinking how nice it looks. mk2 rears and a reversin spot would suit. your grille is great... maybe corner bars for the 'riders

MK1 grille, MK1 bonnet badge, glass amber indicators, group 5 arches, 10" Minilites, chrome Tex mirrors, corner bars, welded in MK1 light units, MK1 boot lid. That's what I'd do anyway, hopefully one day I'll buy another Mini and do just that.

Thanks. Im tempted with the mk 2 lights and reversing light, I like my riders without the bars. More of a MK3 cooper s look. My arches are only standard ones but painted.
