My EB R53 - Cooper S
Hello all. Ive been around the forum for a while but never stared my own project thread yet. This would be my R53, not as good looking as most of your mini's but i am getting there :thumbup1:
Any ideas for the car?
I thought I'd start this thread to begin documenting the progress of my conversion from One to S.
I've owned my car over 4 years now, and the time has come to up the ante and start making it in to the car I've always wanted.
As most of you know, I've already yapped on about this long enough...
due to the last thread being full of shatty comments i thought id start a new one with pictures- if you like what you see then pm me
heated jcw seats in mint condition- comes with heating wiring kit- installation instructions- and bases
absolutly everything you need- even the resistor...
Looks like the boys & girls in Europe have started already lol :thumbup1:
Also for the wheel whores amongst us the sizes!
center bore 72.6mm
stock wheel sizes:
6.5x16 ET 46 with 205/60R16
7x17 ET50 with 205/55R17
7.5x18 ET52 with 225/45R18
7.5x19 ET52 with 225/40R19
Well a few months ago i got bored since i couldn't get much more done to the JCW without it either looking silly or venturing into the unknown.... then i went to the seaside & bought a shell
It started out life as a 52 plate Cooper but since then it's misplaced it's engine.... it also needed...
Well first things first hello my name is Sonia i own a Gorgeous MINI Cooper 53 reg called Humbug he's called Humbug because he's Black & White like a Humbug sweet lol
Here are a few pictures from the day I bought him to the present day :)
I hope you love him as much as I do :) :) :)
Have stripped out my car over the months and today weighed a few bits .
Battery - 13.64kg
Roof Glass inc seals, motor, inside panel - 25kg
Battery cable - larger of the two red ones - 2.3kg

Edit: I thought it was time to update the project thread, and put things in the first post in an organized way.
