Unless I've missed something somewhere along the thread you won't be able to use that plate? If the mini is still an 86 as per yiur first post "D" is the newest year you can use as you can't make a car look newer. Sorry to be the bearer of bad news if that is the case, but cracking work on everything else and keep it up.   


Not sure what am do at the mo did spot that when i boght it just wanted it as it match my fiesta

got some legal slicks the guy i bought them off from huddersfield spares says that yokohama are stopping production of these tyres in the next few months as the decibel reading on them is too high. so if you use these may want to stock up

they are stopping the 12 and 13" rims but the 10" slicks are still being produced

Will, the calipers need to be on the front edge of the hub, you need to swap the hubs around. Also the offset looks way too big, this might get better once you've sorted the hub orientation out......

Will swap the hubs round.
