    Does anybody know of a company selling the graphics for the two dash panels on the 2nd Gen cars? I can't find anyone, now that AC stopped making them.

    I was looking for the "black jack" to wrap the two panels. It seems like only one company made them.

    Jim....
    Maybe think about coming up with your own panel graphics. I think it would be pretty interesting to develop your own custom graphics (versus something that's the same as another 100 other MINI's). Do the artwork and then take it to a vinyl house and have them print one off for you. Then with some razor blades (and bandaids), get to work fitting it to your dash.

    Results..... Hey, that's pretty unique, where'd you get that.......

    Versus..... Huh, yeah I've seen that on a couple of other MINI's, just can't remember where.....

    I like it as well, but why is he upside down. Is it supposed to be on the other door to be right side up. Mirror'd Could go either way depending on the look your after I guess..
