Had some custom work done there this week for Jezebel and could not be happier with the quality of the work, the professionalism, the courtesy and the speed of turnaround. A clean, friendly shop - and these guys know MINIs! :)

OOOoooohhh... I've seen Rodney's Twin Charged MINI on the track. Very nice car. If you've made major changes, I'd love to see what's been done. I remember him mentioning the possibility of a new look in its future a while back.

This is all paint no vinyl. We designed all the graphics using the basic theme/look given to us. We like how it came out. We already have plans with Rodney to add more to it like the mirror covers, the scoop, and a few other pieces. The next mini we do custom or a different style i will post on this thread. If you have any question whats so ever you can post,call, or email.

Its based on an old design he had on the side. He wanted to keep it similar to the previous design. Its supposedly a piston and a rod.

I always thought that's what it looked like... but I was wondering if it was really supposed to symbolize a turbo & a supercharger... I just couldn't see it, so I'm glad my first guess was right! :D

The kit has more pieces and is more complex but its still only a two day job removal, paint, buff, and install.

That PW MCS looks amazing. Great work!

Image

Is the side skirt from a kit, or is that the stock one painted? It's exactly the look I was going for without spending the money on getting all of the moldings painted. What's the going rate to get this done?

Yes, we love Luis here at DTM! He gives us the best service, and we get MINI's in and out with great work! We have a body shop, but when it comes to customer service, a great deal and a time restraint, see Luis @ Glimpse Auto.

Thanks for all the help, Luis. I appreciate it man!
