How do you intend taking the fuel tank out if it ever comes to it???

Oh, and you can quote more than one person in one post to save multy posting :)

Good work, not to my liking but each to their own.

I think it looks wicked mate, the only thing im not keen on is the spoiler, to BIG for my liking, and im glad you have changed the head lights. Looks like alot of hard work and effort has gone into it, and it has paid off. Hat of to you.

If you look - in one of the pics you can see he has made a big old hole in the rear seat, im guessing that is for access to the tank/battery etc.

Mate i like it, ignore everyone who said it was disguisting, its nice. Its unique and a one off and its got a mean personality. Fair play alot of work probably went into that. I love the interior. Puts a big modern twist onto the car.

what the hell is all i can say yes it's different i give you that but no.. just doesn't work on the mini

only thing i like from this car is the the blended boot, the door cards (althou i wouldn't have them) and the carbon dash, maybe upgrade the switches to metal toggle switches?

are they 13's your running there? if so that about 2" of gap you've got in the arch so yes it's sitting high (on the ramp it's looks at least 3")

well done for the effort you've put into it! alot quicker than what i've done with mine! all the best for the future with the car but it's like marmite.... you either like it or hate it.... i'm the hater

picture make it look alot higher, and the way i look at it, when you modify a car, it for your own preferance, if people like it its a bonus, if people dont, then they dont.

he wont be able to help you......

because a) he's a fictional character and b) he knows nothing about mechanics or body styling.

good luck on your first encounter with a speed bump
