Mini Mania Car


This is Mini-Mania, and a more beautiful working environment I have yet to imagine.

Located in the Town of Nevada City, it is an old mining town in the mountains at around 2500 ft above sea level.

The area is absolutely beautiful, and the people very friendly.

I was there in late October, it was warm, sunny, dry and the temperature was around 70 degrees C.

I arrived on the Thursday and spent the day sourcing the parts and equipment needed which included fibredisk pads for the grinder,  2-pack glue to bond the kit on with, and both red and white paint. 

I had all this back at Autofashion HQ was was unable to take it by air due to the airline restrictions. 

On the Friday work really started in earnest. 

As you can see the skirts were removed, to ease fitting of the majic skirts. It's just about to get dark in the photos and as you can see we have only just got the front apron on.

To save time all parts were primed prior to bonding on, and were then painted on the car.

Normally we would carry out both the priming and fitting after they had been fitted and allowed to cure. 

We moved into the paint booth so we could see whilst we fitted the rear apron, and then left Craig at around 10.00pm to paint the car - he finished around 2.00am, and we returned at 8.00am to refit the car prior to it being loaded onto the trailer for shipping to Vegas at around 12.00pm Saturday.

A very busy time but everyone seemed to agree it was worth the effort.

This Photo sums up the whole thing for me - Finished car on Saturday morning in the glorious California sun, with the truely stunning mountain wildlife in the background. 

Below you can see the car on display at the SEMA show in Las Vegas. This show is very very impressive.

The car got a lot of attention at the show, and even the legendary Paddy Hopkirk expressed interest.

Pictures of this car are still used on MiniMania US and MiniMania UK websites, and magazine adverts - sometimes in Purple (photoshop) version.
