Lohen side stripes

not digging the wing or the mud flaps, ruins what could be one of the better coopers imo

good work on the brace though

after a lot of testing Jove removed it from the power ranger as it just caused drag, with 242 whp it was a hindrance must be even worse on a cooper

Not a big fan of the M7 Wing personally, think it looks a bit too big and ruins the rear lines of the car IMHO.

other than that really nice car!

Possible idea . . . Remove the stickers on the aero rear bumper, makes the car look really clean lined and nice afterwards, did this for Antihero's old 'S' think there's pics of it in my detailing gallery when i did it.

Good work on the brace, welds could do with a clean up, but on the whole, nice job!! :) Did you fabricate the parts off another brace?

Thanks for the comments so far i no the spoiler isn't to every ones taste buy i dont think the photos do it any justice. I made the strut brace completely from scratch with nothing to copy off :thumbup:

Nice car but I'd lose the lohen stickers.....spoiler is insane, maybe too insane.

Like the mud guards, didn't know they could fit an aero kit, did they take must cutting?

wheels look a lot better... needs to be lower at the front and the stickers and mud flaps taken off... if the spoiler is your thing then go with it but I think it looks whack.

why have you got mud flaps btw? dont get it :laugh:

They are more stone guards than mud flaps as i have painted arches and the previous owner didn't have them and the rear arches are chipped the hell so im not paying to get them painted and just letting them get chipped again thats why iv got them.

As Jamesf says my car is a fail in his eyes but hay i like and the way i see it is every one to there own and im happy with it :thumbup:

I like the car bar the wing, side strips and mudflaps....

... and seriously, if your not entering/going to Time Attack lose the strip it's a bit fail (like a ring sticker and not having been before if you get me?)

Other than that, so much potential to be a clean and simple looking clubsport style cooper. Needs a bit of forward rake too if I'm being picky (lower at front than the back).

Talk to me about the strut brace. Did you literally just cobble it together / do the struts need to be in tension due to the brace. Or is the brace just there to prevent movement in current positions?

Did you just measure across the gap or use what it should be?
