PostSubject: My Colour Matching ......   17th November 2009, 17:22

..... or lack of it!!!!!

Was really excited bounce as on Saturday the day had arrived for Oscar to finally finally get the mod he deserves, the colour matching. Headed off on the epic 4.5 hour drive to Morecambe full of excitement...... Coastal Mini has a great set up and really good to see the racing minis in all their glory, all the M7 stuff on the walls and best bit he had an 8 week old puppy called Annie I love you I love you couldn't tear me away.

On to business started taking black off, replaced the arches - so far so good and colour match GOOD so very happy so far - then out of the box comes the rear bit Jaw Drop shock horror it's only been colour matched perfectly on Cooper bumpers!!!!! Out of the box comes front bumper that's for a Cooper as well and so are the side skirts. Therefore Oscar now has colour matched arches!!!!!

Carl has ordered the right bits from BMW now and they are in the paint shop, then sending by courier to home address for goofy to fit at the weekend fingers crossed Carl did try to get me Aero skirts (bless him) as compensation for their error but they wouldn't go for that apparently we are getting coats Rolling Eyes Rolling Eyes

Pictures will be posted when finished, just hope I like it when it's done now!!!!!

Oh Caz, what a blooming nightmare. And such a long drive home when you are feeling so disappointed. Hope that they get the right parts to you soon so that Super Goofy can get them on for you. Chin up Hun it will be so worth it in the end. Big hug.

Thanks guys, just a minor blip but after the first trip up got cancelled as he had his day job to do then, another trek it is just sooooo disappointing. Still goofy to the rescue and I'm sure he will do an amazing job.

Anyone know where I can get some cheap Cooper S kick plates? When Dan put's the side skirts on it is unlikely the kick plates will come off cleanly, looked at Fleabay and none on there at the moment?

I got mine from the dealers for once Confused Embarassed it was cheaper to buy the Jcw variant as there not metal & easier to remove than the orig metal mini ones. Cant remember how much as that was over a year ago lol!

I very much doubt you will get them off witout bending, if you do they prob wont stick again

Did see mini have brought some new ones out in the accessories

If not ebay

Hope that helps hun Hug
