Well, just a few updates...

Also, I had a few pieces made to change up my emblems on the front/rear a little. Nothing major, but a few subtle things. I am picking them up on friday and pics will be posted.

The black circle in the middle will no longer have "MINI" in the center. It will retain the black background, but will have something else inlaid in the center.

AND... I have smoothed out the stock tow hook, which took like 4 hours and 7 dremel bits to do , and had it color matched to the car. Initially my intent was to coat it with plastic/rubber dip like they use on tool handles, but it seems to be a fad now, so i changed it up a bit and went different. I'll shoot some pics today of it.

For all of the slow ones here...

Im having a new center badge made that will replace the black circle with the "MINI" on the front/rear wings. Im not saying exactly what just yet, but a few may have an idea.

And I smoothed out the stock tow hook and had it painted body color to match the car.
