    I'm a big fan of stripes that extend down to the lower bumper such as these. Same treatment on the rear?

    Thanks

    Just put those on for some fun, not really sure how long I will keep them....No Nathan I stopped them at the bottom of the boot hatch in the rear. I have the standard S rear bumper and all those curves going to the little center oval do not lend themselves to vinyl very well. Bryan (N2MINI) who made the stripes and helped me put them on looked at it and without a lot of piecing, it couldn't be done. :(

    Really like the stripes. The effect on the front makes it pop and going over the roof is cool. I think they should be keepers. :Thumbsup:

    Very nice, you have quite a bit of cabbage invested in that Mini, bet it is a blast to drive.

    That's the most ghetto MINI I've ever seen. You should be ashamed.

    Just updated the suspension. Changed out the TSW springs for the new Swift Springs! Preliminary impression is very good but haven't given them a good hard shake down yet!:fingerscrossed:

    Just updated the garage with some pics of the springs and struts.

    In a word: Wow!!!

    Didn't think what I had was bad but now, it was way off. These Springs make a HUGE difference and I'm expecting a significant improvement at the track!!!

    ...and they ride better than the TSWs did.

    Highly recommend them! :thumbup::thumbup:;):cool::D

    So what made them better? Which version of the TSW's did you have?

    What rear dampers are you using?
