For quite some time I toyed with the idea of adding a dummy right hand filler cap for that 60's look but it didn't sit well with me to have a fake item just for show. Whilst weighing up my options, it occurred to me that I could re-purpose it as a location to house a battery isolator. Something I wanted to fit anyway to disable the power during long periods of inactivity.
Who doesn't like a cup holder?!
One of the issues with the classic mini is that it was designed a long time ago and having somewhere to stow your hot beverage whilst driving wasn't considered. All in seriousness, I've got a few reasons for fitting this centre console; somewhere to hold my phone, rear cup holder to house a bluetooth speaker (no stereo in the car), much cleaner looking install and if required, somewhere to hold that hot drink
Ever since I decided 2 years ago that I was going to supercharge the Yamaha R1 engine I knew I would eventually need an airbox or sometimes called a plenum. I have looked at lots of different options and even splashed out ~ £180 on ready made Pipercross PX600 item only to find it was far too big for the engine bay.
So that left me with the option of having to fabricate something.
