Beetwenty's B10 2 door

Thanks D.
I'm jealous of mini freaks.
I'd love to own a mini.
I made a custom backing plate to adapt an L Series SU airbox onto my DCOE Weber.
Still want my SU carbs on there.
But this is a great temporary mod to keep me happy with things.
Battery is normal size... I think.

With All jap day just around the corner I find myself looking for subtle ways to make my car a little better that the last time I went.
Today's project... lowering the number plate so you can see more of the chrome bumper from any angle.
I bent up some 1mm aluminium sheet and poped in some riv nuts to make the part.

I decided to keep the bracket shiney instead of painting it black as I thought this would hide on the chrome bar a little better than something painted.

I'm amazed at how much this simple mod perceprivley shrinks the car when seeing it in person.
Having the number plate lower makes the car feel lower/smaller to me when standing in front of the car.
Didn't expect it to make such a difference to how I feel about the front of my car.

Ive binned the bracket in the past too Ash, 
I think I just bolted the plate to the bumper holes, as it curved the plate a bit to fit in nicely, 
definately a good mod...
I think it is an excellent mod.
Sometimes the small things turn out to be more important than you think.
Made a small steel bracket to better mount two throttle return springs on my Weber today.

It's nothing major, but an improvement is an improvement ,so worth doing.

Today I attended All Jap Day in Banyo, Brisbane.
I took home a trophy for my 1000 which made my day.

You got the Datsun Bunny as well? 
just judge thought 1ks are great little cars?
I think most that lay eyes on your gem are
just blown away by its awesomeness!
Just last week driving my one of only 100
BRG high power factory 90hp optioned
John Cooper Special Rover Mini and got
an offer outside of a convenient store.
I took without a second thought as all FWD
even this thing did nothing for me.

I made/bought the Sunny Bunny to draw your eye to my entrant number.
I thought id try my luck and make an effort to win something at the show.
The Sunny Kun and Pointing-Hand was a silly little touch to remember my car for.
Thanks for the compliments D.
