Gold and Black (Updated Pics)

Here is my 2004 Mini Cooper painted in Solid Gold

Modifications:
Black Aero Grill
Stubby Antenna
17" Team Dynamics Pro Sport 1.2

I dont feel like she is finished yet and wanted to get some input to see what everyone thinks and suggestions on what I should do next. It's not the best scenery, and she needs a bath, but it gives an idea.

Deffo a drop, belt line black out, black handles and maybe black headlight rings.

And maybe a Joey mod but that may be going a bit too far.

I don't normally like the 24k, but with the tinted windows that is a very sharp MINI.

Clear (or smoked) side indicators?

Otherwise I don't think you'd need to do too much more to it

Thanks. I have been thinking about blacking out the rest of the car but the biggest thing stopping me was painting the handles on the door and the boot. I haven't seen any black aftermarket ones so I figured I'd have to paint it.

I appreciate the input. I've decided I'm going to go ahead and blackout the rest of the car. I'll post pics when done.

Well it took longer than expected but here is the end result. I lowered with Eibach Springs, blacked out the beltline, added black halo lights and smoked side indicators, and I painted the headlight rings, door handles, and the boot handle.

that is really nice. The black and gold combo looks amazing. Well done with everything so far, I don't think it needs another thing done,
