    I'm liking the Roofie!!

    I know why you picked silver, but I thought the red looked sharp.

    Do you get turbulence from the back?

    Thanks! It may become red again soon.

    No turbulence.

    He was at MOTD last year if I'm not mistaken. There was a group of GP's running around together and he was one of them. Or was that 2016...... I don't recall. So far the only other MINI I've seen from MA was The Mistress last year.

    I was there...'03 Silk Green/White R50 with the Welsh Flag sunroof cover. I've been there every year since 2004 and will be there again this year...with the same car.

    Awesome! This was a great build. There have been a few occasions I wanted to reference something from this build only to remember there were no pictures to assist in Paul's narrative (I can use all the help I can get)..
    I am feeling a little nostalgic, might have to read through the whole build again this week.
    Thanks for the hard work and restoring the thread.

    No problem - I love this build also. I have a few more post to go through, but most of the photobucket post that can be restored have.. once that is done and double checked.. will be removing the old links to photobucket so their little odd pic doesn’t show up. :)
