  • Saw the afore mentioned skroat near my car
  • Ran down the stairs
  • saw and heard him key my car

  • Gave him a strong talking too!! :angry::angry::angry:
  • Detained him until the Police arrived asuring him everything would be ok and I'm not really Sceathing with RAGE to the damage on my car
  • Admitted to the police the damage caused
  • The Scroat Spent a night in cells

I could put a million pics in this thread but can the server handle it !!!???


:)
I'm thinking of getting a roof decal for my MINI - red car, red roof. I like the ripped chequered decal I saw on a Checkmate here on the forum. It looked well as the car's roof was already silver, and the decal was black/silver. The ripped effect in silver worked well for the same reason.

However, my roof is red, so the chequered pattern could perhaps be black/white, and the ripped part where it joins the roof of the car would need to be red. Is this possible to make a decal like this?

Also, what decals would you recommend for a red R56 MINI? If you could post a few pictures of customers' red MINIs with decals that would be great...;)

I'll PM you with some thoughts ;)

The checkmate you talk about (Minicabrio) did in deed have a silver roof so we printed the blue cheqs to match the Space Blue color of the car - but printed onto clear vinyl - this way the silver of the roof paint comes through the decal and makes the ink metallic - awesome :)

Thanks. Also, can this type of decal be applied by any dealership - it doesn't have to be custom fit by you does it?

well all our roof decals are custom fit by us as they are Mini Pirate products and not dealer products.

Dealers are not trained vinyl specialists so the results can not be guaranteed if they fit them - if you can't get us to fit them for you then the next best thing is to find a local sign/vinyl company that would be welcome to fit for you.

Hi Phil,
We have just aquired a new Red Mini One with white bonnet stripes for our 18year old. Can you suggest something for the red coloured roof.........oh, and it has to be fashionable apparently!

Loving the clean lines Toby, you just can't resist Pepper white.

How much more money do I have to spend to catch you???? :p:p

Then again I do take the cred for having the Original PW JCW :p:p:eek:

Have you had it coded? Can't really make it out with the overhead shot
