"Exterior flaws are listed as minor bubbling on the left rocker panel and some surface rust around the battery tray area."
How can you do a bare metal repaint 2 years ago and already have bubbling on a rocker panel and rust in the battery tray?  Obviously you didn't take the entire car to bare metal, or your paint shop SUCKS!  I don't get it.

I think the latter....poor prep work. I know Bruce's Emma is needing a little attention already and she had a full bare bones respray, and Don's Pup had a few bubbles showing up only a year or so after he got it, and it also was a full bare metal repaint.

Usually lack of an epoxy sealer will let moisture penetrate the metal.  However there are times it comes from the back of unprotected areas.  Commonly found between early type A panels and door bottoms.  A proper sealer can technically be sprayed over minor rust and the rust won't spread.  Once it gets moisture then you got problems.

The MK II Cooper is not an S just a standard Cooper with a 1380 in it.

I missed that it wasn't a real S.  Probably should rely on reading better, looking more critically, and using my laptop rather than my phone.   :-[

I am revising my wildassguesstimate for the Mk. II to $14K

A new Mini offering on BaT, this time a factory "Retro" Mini!  I like it!

In the article they mention the top was black at one point, I think they should have painted it burgundy to pick up on the interior theme.

Is it just me, or does the door and the shell up to the front seem appear  to be a different shade of white?  I thought at first it was shadows, but every picture seems to show it.
I am the GR8KORNHOLIO! Are you threatening me?

At this price most folks would be afraid to ever even drive it.

Both of the doors on the white Mini have been repaired and painted due to rust issues with only 40k miles on it. They just missed the mark with this "design" glad it did not go into production. They should have used a lot more of the MK I stuff so people could relate to it and toned down the seats a little. It sold in the UK a couple of years ago but imo it would do better in Japan.
