    Default Pir8's Black MINI R53 Work-in-progress

    Talk about slow builds, here is my 2003 Cooper S that I've been working on for over 5 years now.

    2003 - April 2005
    How she looked the day I picked her up


    April 2005 - April 2006
    I purchased this car as a company car so the first part of her life with me was as a moving billboard. This is how she looked in her first set of graphics




    April 2006 - December 2006
    I ***** the graphics and opted for something a little cleaner


    December 2006 - April 2008
    I sold off my portion of the company and purchased the car for myself... off with the ads. This version had matte black stripes.


    2009
    Stripes removed driving on the Tail of the Dragon



    Current
    More low. Also put in facelift taillights, removed stripes, driving lights & front splitter. I found these pictures from H2Oi 2010. (car needs to be polished)




    She's riding on H&R coils. The fake 17x7s & tractor-like 215/45's were just a bad decision I made 6 years ago (with my first MINI) and haven't rectified. I've been trying to find someone who will trade out my web design services for some new wheels & rubber, but no luck so far.

    2 days after H2O she looked like this





    Somehow a battery spark in the back of the car caught several of the hats & bags that I was selling at the show on fire. Luckily I saw it before it got out of control. The battery and cables are fried, but that was only the fire damage... the rest was smoke.

    She's at the local BMW dealership getting cleaned and repaired. I hope to have her back home in a week or so.

    I just realized I didn't update this thread. The car made it home a week ago after being in the shop for 7 weeks.
