Really, really cool...i´ve already tough of that...and i had a crazyier idea, that it would look awesome with some big wheels and lowering...

Opel Corsa A front metal wings welded on top of std ones...Lancia delta integrale style...

There´s also alot of flares for the old minis, on various styles...

But congrats on the car, looks way cool...

i've been wondering about using some mini sportspack flares on my mk1 since they're designed to be used with 13" wheels

Are you tryin' to make everyone hate silver rims now? :) Seriously, on the way back to Oregon, I thought about giving mine the "white" treatment! I got bigger fish to fry, though.

Nice flares, 'hunter.
