Saw this at Vines Redhill a couple of weeks ago. Took me back to my first F1 experience.

I really like it but I'm not sure if its cool or geek chic. Given the era it evokes I think I might be target market. Not sure it would be down with the kids though.

What do you think?



Not sure I could carry off gold wheels...



I also found these online. Apparently they're completely photoshopped. Some serious skills there...

Many moons ago I brought a written off Lotus Super Seven.......it was only 18mths old with 5k miles...

After many long weekends & evenings it was completely rebuilt with new body shell, wings etc.

I then sprayed it gloss black and every panel was pin stripped in gold Very Happy

It one of the fasted accelerating cars I've ever driven Shocked

Unfortunately I can't find any photos, as it was pre digital.....Sad

You just need to be very sensitive on the loud pedal on a wet day or you meet the rear on the way past your front lol!

Do it; what could possibly go wrong? Wink

Anyway, you are already on the slippery slope, you have purchased a Mini, modding is just a way of life Very Happy

He he... I agree. I'll get it done after Tom has detailed the car and before the Beaulieu show on the 9th.
Won't have Gold wheels by then but... step by step.
