Hi all I’m at the final stage on the restoration now and about to fit the white bonnet strips and decals down the side on my 1998 Mini Cooper Sportspack, the car is Tahiti blue with a white roof and mirrors, the white paint is the proper colour it should be but I’ve offered up the bonnet strips and they are really white compared to the roof and wing mirrors, they are Minispares stripes, is this normal they don’t match ?
Thanks

I have no direct experience of the bonnet stripes, but I would be surprised if they don't darken, slightly, with age and weathering.

 

Mini Spares might know.

 

Anyone out there who's fitted them?

My '98 JDM Cooper has the bonnet and side strips in a purer white than the roof which is Diamond White (NAL).

Are the white stripes whiter than the roof ?
