    Seems a little quiet recently around here. Thought I’d put these up. It’s a 2013 Mustang recently imported from the USA to the UK which had some light panel damage all over. Bumpers, skirts and other plastics will be painted next week.

    Mmmm, very quiet.

    That’s looking good though. Maybe just the lights but that looks a very light red, almost pink.

    Looking good mate now ! What paint you use solvent or water ? Hows the coverage with your reds as some of ours are terrible unless you paint it white over primer first lol

    It’s Ford Race Red which is quite an orange shade of red I guess.

    I actually did it in Glasurit 68 line single stage for several reasons but it came out good anyway.

    Yep that would be me haha. Not been on there for years. I had a few minis between the age of 15-19. Now I’m the ripe old age of 26 it seems a distant memory.

    Plastics painted today. These bumpers and skirts were wrecked and needed replacing to be honest but parts are not so easy to get here.

    It’s a customer job this one.

    I did a fully de seamed mini with moulded and smoothed wheel arches. It got mistaken for a mini minus all the time as that was the look I wanted. I also put a tilt and slide sunroof out of a Citroen saxo in it as well as a metro 1275 motor.

    Then I had a late cooper sport 1275 in British racing green with a white roof and full length webasto sunroof and leather interior.

    They are great little cars. Do you have one Carl?

    If it’s a genuine cooper they are fetching quite abit now. I did a full resto on a mk2 cooper s downton tuned shell 18 months ago. The labour and paint was 5k but the car is rebuilt now and probably worth 20-25k to the right man.

    I didn’t need to cut the trumpets on my first mini as the rubber doughnuts had totally collapsed! So it was already pretty low and very bumpy.
