Default The Midnight Project - F56 JCW - 10th February 2017, 06:13 PM

Hi All

Just thought I would start a quick project thread for my latest Mini, picked up a decent spec 2016 F56 JCW Hatch Nov 2016 and started tinkering with it.

I traded my E93 M3 to buy it and after a search found the spec I wanted, this will be my 5th new gen Mini.

Day i picked it up........



First Mod I had the dealer wrap the headlight rings in gloss black.

Then bought a few goodies from Cotsworlds...


1. MINI Sports Aerial
2. MINI F56 BLACK BOOT MAT COVER / LINER
3. MINI John Cooper Works Pro Key Lanyard
4.MINI John Cooper Works Pro Key Cover
5. MINI F56 ashtray

1. 2. 3. 4. 5.

Bought my self gloss black grill cover in preparation of a full dechrome, thought about wrapping but just in case I change the car I could remove it and reinstall it to another.

Went for a chrometech one which fitted quite well and snug costed 100 posted.



Fitted..............

Some nice Mini's you have had before and the new one is looking very stealthy with the decrome.

Looking great.... I am copying you on the dechrome.... I have started the waistline and have some wrap for the the handles but waiting for warmer weather before I press on with it..... where did you get your black handle covers? I'm sure I can't fit them to my R60 but it might save me some faffing with the wrap.

Already done all the light rings and scuttles, just those handles! I hate chrome!

I will watch your thread with interest.


R60 Cooper S auto, Pure red, chilli, media and light packs. Harman Kardon. Lots of mods to come.....

I bought a set on amazon from car lab they costed 58 got it with amazon prime next day delivery, there are ones on eBay but it says it will be shipping from Taiwan so not sure how long delivery will be. They have some for the R60 range which I think may be cheaper.

Good Luck
