I saw a 1275 Mini a few years ago and he mounted his stock radiator to the inner fender and used an electric fan with no shroud, he did have a small scoup under the front panel that helped with the air flow and never had overheating issues here in Florida.

Hmmm. I guess we'll just have to see what she needs. I'm not opposed to a custom front mount radiator

I think I'm gonna do a vacuum formed fan shroud on an electric fan. We'll see how that turns out. haha

Also, NEW VIDEO UPLOADED!!

Just adding another video to the series I just started. I'm working on upgrading everything on the car, especially the lights. I like to drive at night so an LED Lightbar for the backroads will come in handy. Check out my install video if you like working on your mini and want to see how I did it!

Your editing skills have improved, along with the extra lighting in the shop, it makes the vids much better.

Thanks Dave. Always appreciated. I really wanted to try some new stuff with this one and raise the entertainment value and make it more like a conversation with friends. The ride-along at the beginning wasn't even planned. Lol

Sold the viper because they mini is making me go bankrupt. J/K, it's at my friend's supercar shop getting some work done and making room in the garage. Lol

They start at $469. Lol. Add suede and heated seats and other things and it gets more expensive. Lol We'll see how the rest goes. Matching the rear seat to the front should be interesting. Haha

I noticed the ones that recline are quite a bit more!  :-\

I'd love to find a set of seats from a 96-2000 Mini, they look really comfy.

Not really a fan of most recliners honestly. They're too generic and not enough bucjet or they're way too ricer race car. The only ones that recline AND look good to me are about $1500 a piece and they still don't do enough for me to justify the price
