How to make your Classic Mini even cooler!



Tyre writing is not too everyone's taste but like hi los it makes a massive difference on the look of any Mini. The paint pen cost me just £1 per tyre and matches the white paintwork to a tee. I have had these same model of Falken tyres, they allow all the grip you need, even with my 998cc engine is capable of slipping the wheels when you launch the car at traffic lights which adds to the experience of driving. The tyre writing, therefore, makes sense to me to highlight what a fun tyre they are. Recently I saw a classic Porsche Carrera with pink matching ink on the tyres (picture below), instantly I knew it had to be done.

I might try this on my type3 , dont know if my hand is steady enough . The tyres on the porsche were pirelli pzero rosso the red lettering was factory had these on my monaro, body colour was red I thought it pretty cool at the time, then i sold it . (regret it sometimes)

Hi there, apologies for the delay, I used these Posca pens. Those tyres on the Porsche makes a very interesting story, I had no idea. Cool car too, looks clean.

  • Alright our good people... 1st things first...important stuff!!! Brews !!! Now we’ve all seen our Tom here making a brew or two... IN STYLE!! Of course...but why oh why do you leaving the tea bag in while adding milk!!! 🙈 .. we all know you take the bag out before adding the milk...so this brings me up the lead and really only question of the day... “ when brewing up... How many of you?...” 1. Take the bag out... before adding milk? or 2. Leave the bag in... when adding milk? 🤓 Moving on swiftly...MINIs !!!!! As I’m based in the Deep South (bournemouth) I’ve been trying to find someone to have a look at how much body work needs doing on the old Girl!!! currently that answer varies with everyone I talk too...the old girl is sat in dry storage in the midlands ... so I’ll be shooting a few questions out there in the coming weeks ... but to start ... I’m looking for someone who can help assess and do the body work required ... any names numbers ideas around the east and west midlands are most welcome... thanks for reading and in the words of Bill Withers... “have...a lovely day!!!“
  • Hi guys, have just joined after watching all of Tom’s vlogs on YouTube over a weekend. I have had a 1992 cooper lying on my driveway for many years. I bought it off of a mate who had lost interest in it. needs quite a bit of work but I’m making a start on it this week. looking forward to it
