    Well, my 13 turbines will hit the market one of these days... They'd look pretty sweet on a classic mini.

    ya, but Mini's lose a lot of their handling characteristics when you put 13's on them.

    Saw your rims at Dave's place the other day, back coating behind the face with black looks great.

    Been awhile since there has been more progress on the Mini. I dropped off my wheels awhile back at Fine Tuning to get the tires switched over, hopefully they get time to switch them over in the next week or so. I just placed an order that I hope is my last one for a good long while.

    Got the wheels mounted on the Mini and balanced by Dependable Wheel Repair. They were only able to balance the fronts because of how much wobble they were getting the rear. I am hoping that I won't get too much shake on the freeway. Also, they had to balance them on the car because their machine couldn't fit the wheels due to the rear spoke design. Les Schwab couldn't balance them off the car either. Thanks to Rabbit 16v for getting them mounted up!

    Unfortunately they also had to put the weights on the front side of the rim due to the design of it.

    Full cooling system replacement, relocating / upgrading the speedometer to the center of the dash, and installing a new tach, volt, and oil pressure/ water temp gauges.
