As Brad (Willie_B) says, many Minis with contrasting roofs have a black edge trim around the roof rail that gives the same look.

At first glance that is what I thought was there, so looks fine to me.

seeing this post and the old picture again this morning reminds me of something I read a few weeks ago about Canadian Minis:

Only in Canada, eh?
 Wonder if it was made from maple wood?   ;D

Man, I'll tell you what... those super ugly Canadian bumpers saved my ass when I rear ended a Toyota not long after that picture was taken... Only had to replace one wing and the front panel... I actually wish I still had the bumpers only because so many of us simply got rid of them...

Couple shots from today... Twin HS2 are finding their new home... and that darn fan has been re-mounted (for those with such attention to detail... LOL)
