It doesn't get used so much anymore, so I'm still using a Hero 2 (with a fake Sony ECM-DS70P). The rest of the video was shot with a Panasonic GH4 and RØDE NTG-2 mic... :)

So I stumbled upon this barnfind...



"MY PRECIOUS!!!"



I was in the vicinity for work stuff, so popped in at my favorite MINI-shop. Finally dropped of the parts I collected and went over the plans with my mechanic, so hopefully 2015 will be a good year for this fun little vehicle... :D

Let's see, as far as I can remember (it's been a while): new topmounts, GP2 rear seat delete, rear strut brace, black FL headliner, Cobra Suzuka drivers seat, Newman cam, 380cc injectors, OBX manifold, R56-exhaust, Aero skirts, rear GP trim.

Beginning of that "rest", R56S exhaust with some more sound effects... always thought the Playmini to be too quiet for my taste:


(please excuse the vertical video, wasn't shot by me)

Nope, stock manifold for now, exhaust had to be done as my Cooper-Playmini went on someone else's MINI... :)

Got a new (well, used) set of Orranje GP inserts, after I originally lost one of mine shortly after installing. Will have my mechanic/painter stick them onto the bumper this time... :lol:

In other news: found a original bodykit for the Volvo, and had it painted/installed:

Fresh updates... :cool:

Newman PH2 camshaft (250/400) fitted:









Just as the OBX-header and JCW 380cc-injectors:







Fresh rubber intercooler boots, to replace the silicone ones that are prone to leaking:



And a set of increasingly harder to find GP-trim! :thumbup1:







Game of Thrones:





The sidemounts that came with the Cobra Suzuka don't fit the MINI-rails easily, so some tinkering is required... Or I'll try to find a set of Corbeau mounts, those seem to do the trick.

That volvo looks good bro!

The cooper's add ons look sweet too! How's it feel now with the extra oomph in the new seat?
