I predict a Dave comment on black wheels in 3... 2... 1...

Of course, I never understand black cars in hot places like Texas or Vegas or Pheonix either, let alone black wheels - those must get really hot!   :grin:

Sad to see a good forum die.....I've been worried about this one's lack of participation lately too......I'm hopeful that as the weather has improved people will have their Minis out and something to write about.....

The Lounge / MOT is dead, long live MOT
Last post by MPlayle - February 20, 2024, 11:05:57 AM
For those on this forum that overlapped with the MOT (Mini Owners of Texas) forum:

The MOT forum hosting was not renewed and the site has closed down.  MOT in its various forms (from an informal email list, to a WIKI, to the final forum) had a long and valiant run, but gradually fell into disuse.  The domain owner and headmaster of MOT, John Lieberman, decided last fall to wind it down and allow the hosting to expire.  The group brought many fond memories.

Odd looking for sure, and they seem even weirder when you see them going down the road. I wonder of that was one of the factory expensive wraps or an aftermarket? I like the blue, the purple not so much......Should be super easy car (truck?) to wrap.

$240 a year to wash your car? I used to belong to one of these club deals, but then it was $169 a year - we used it maybe 6 times so that cost $28 a wash. They did a good job tho. We still go there but now we just pay as we go, and it's less than $20 each time

These are just as ugly in real life!

The paint was interesting, with the "flip" from blue to purple.

Did some body work and changed this Mini to an Elf.














Rear bumper and grilles made from scratch, as well as the headlights and taillights. Crude cheap model, but turned out great.

Yeah learning all sorts of stuff lately.  Was supposed to get those capacitors in yesterday but some weather delay has them arriving Monday.  I got the resistors in.  Luckily I'm not mid paint job or something important.
