Very nice indeed! The side profile shot is my favorite.

I assume those are fiberglass bumpers. Could you tell us where you purchased them?

Niiiiiice! 2.0L? I can see the badge faintly, but sometimes those are purposely inaccurate.... Is the engine as purty as the rest? (That was my subtle hint to please post some engine pics ).

Nice job Dale!

send some pics of the interior too. Boy that looks really good. I'm hopin mine turns out somethin like that but in black. I really like that yellow, its not too dark and its not too pale. Normally I don't like cars with painted sail panels unless the whole car's black, but with that yellow it looks right.

Great looking Ride, Dale !! You definitely got the color right (as sammyg2 said).
I, too, really like those side mirrors - give us the details !
And as Biggy 72 said - some inside pics! What kind of seats are those ?
(Obviously the test of your pictures worked!). We are all ears for more details!

jc9, check the caps lock. Unless you actually mean to be shouting every word you say.

Second, have you looked in at your local BMW dealer lately? You'll find a whole "MINI" (all caps, they insist on it) section.

I think the total yellow without the black makes the car profile smoother than with black rockers and valances. Great car cant wait for more info. Bernie

Very nice car Dale,

Didn't you know that yellow cars are faster! Ask mountain914. But not as fast as Ravenna Green.

Waiting for details . . .
