My mini came with a rotten top dash rail and I could not really tell how it was suppose to sit on the side of the window pillars. I have now got a new top dash rail and was wandering if anyone has any pictures of how it sits at the ends please.

The ends of the top rail rail seem to be just butted up against the A pillar and tack welded to it. It looks like all the support comes from being spot welded to the scuttle panel.

Hope you don’t mind me jumping on this thread. Mine shows signs of corrosion but wasn’t sure whether it needed replacing, is it structural?

    Mine is purple, but I have been told that's normal

That's exactly where mine rotted too. I cut out all the bad bits and welded in new metal, removed the water vents at the same time on both sides..
