Hi Guys,

I used to have a mini and and really want to get one again, im looking into getting a fairly recent one, 1990 onward but I so want to make it look like a more classic mini, eg 10in wheels, central speedo etc.

Does anyone know the best place to go for this kind of kit?

Also does anyone have a car like this they want to show off, would love to see some examples.

Thanks

It would be quite tricky to put a central clock in a new-ish car, I reckon. I might be wrong, though.

Try Minispares, Minisport, DSNClassics, those are all good sites.

I agree with Tom, 1990 onwards minis were not built to accomadate central speedos. To change would mean changing the speedo cable and location of cables for indicators, oil light, ignition etc...........

I have a picture of my old one which will put up later!!!!!!!
