i used to work in a mini paint shop and i can assure you the work that goes into them makes it worth every penny.

you roll one of those outta the paint oven and eveyone stops working!

i sould still have the pictures, but we did three of the four available colours, python being the most common.

when you compare these dreamline paints to some of the flip paints the max power type of car have, the dreamline really stands out.

you might have to pay more for it but everyone knows you get what you pay for!


ill try and get those photos...

Always was a rebel

Yes but it has more photos taken of it at the events we attend than any other mini there, so as a promotional tool it works just fine

Were there lots of options for this flip paint? It would be interesting to see them all

On second thoughts 5k doesn't seem too out of order given companies are charging close to 10 these days for matte paint

Wow just found them ha reminds me of when I was a kid (around the time those cars were made) those colours were very fashionable definitely suits the playful character of the mini

I think there were three or four to choose from. They all looked awful.
