A set of used Group 2 arches arrived yesterday that I picked up The Mini Forum for a decent price. They need a repaint but overall the condition is good and I can't wait to see what they look like fitted.
Whilst I am going to the hassle of transplanting a Yamaha R1 engine into the Cooper I thought I would take the opportunity to carry out a few exterior mods. I have always liked the look of MK1's so I thought why not add a few MK1 touches to this mini.
I quick google for inspiration found this picture.
My Mini won't look exactly like this but this is the overall look I am going for.
My new shifter arrived for the Yamaha R1 engine I'll soon be installing in the Cooper :-)
I haven't gone into much detail yet about my plans to install a Yamaha R1 engine in the front of the Cooper. I decided to go down this route over Christmas 2014 and a week later I had a 2003 R1 injection engine sitting in my garage.
More to follow....
