LOVE that polished "Works" rocker cover... where'd that come from? I' looking to replace my rusty old one with something a bit different... And the blue CAI on the second one is different - who makes that?

Yup its just a painted metro item with stick on letters. Nope they didnt fall off (super glue lol)

Second engine bay CAI? I gather you mean induction kit?

This is made from a modified maestro carb inlet with some intercooler piping and a cheap £6,50 induction filter.

No expense spent er im mean spared ;D

I love to modify minis but do so on a budget as its rarely possible to get a good return once you decide to start a new project.
Good things can be done with a roll of sticky back plastic and some fairy liquid bottles :cry:
