With our Blue R56 Mini Cooper D sold to Dent Craft in Birmingham, we wasted no time at all replacing and we were extremly happy stumbling across a Mini Chassis we have been longing to convert for a while now, the rather epic R58 Coupe with the added bonus of it being the Cooper S version in black with all of the toys to include full black leather interior, this one really is a beauty and one we are happy to have in the stable.
With the car purchased the first thing on the list of things to do was to get rid of the rather terrible red stripes than run down either side of the bonnet as well as the lower full sides of the car including the doors, which makes a huge difference to the look, nothing but a clean fresh black paint, which will look better with what plans we have for this build.
Mini R58 Coupe Cooper S dressed in 25mm & 35mm flares with 9x17, 245/40r17 Wheels & Tyres
The first modification was to hit the chrome work and our boys at 1st Choice Tints give the chrome work a full detailed enhancement programme, to include a huge list of modifications they carry out if you want to tick every box they do, which we did apart from the wrapping service they offer, so let’s look at what is included in the full enhancement pack. The first thing to get done was the windows, with the back screen and rear side windows being hit with their 5% Global QDP tint and the front windows 50% Global QDP which gives the R58 a real menacing look, especially with the full de-chrome which includes belt line, front headlight surrounds, rear taillight surrounds, front grill surround, front wing Cooper S logos and the Mini badges have all been hit with the gloss black, with the front and rear lights, fogs and centre brake light all being smoke tinted for the full murdered out attire.
With the dechrome and tints taken care of it was time to hit the best part of the conversion and the part we have been looking forward to getting on with was fitting our extended arches with our all new ZF1 wheel design that is the exact width and correct offsets, our 25mm & 35mm flares and 9x17 ZF1 Anthracite wheels wrapped in 245/40R17 Hankook tyres, finished off with a coilover susension set up and the finished look is stunning, this really is how all R58 coupes should look.
For any enquiries on this conversion get in touch with us, we offer a drive in drive out fitting and painting service with wheels, tyres, suspension and of course our wonderful extended arches, which transfer the look of any mini.
With the huge sucess of our flares over the last 5 years for the Gen 2 Mini, it seemed like a natural progression to start the Gen 2 arche programe and we are happy to report the product will be available at the end of March 2021 with the order books filling up already, we are also absout to start working with a really cool R61 Paceman coupe 4x4 owner, as we are all excited by those flares come to market, and the base Paceman is already heavily modified sitting on a set of 19" Rotiform wheels and folloing that build we will start work on the Countryman R60 conversion, so our Mini Schedule is pretty much full on for 2021 and we cound not be happier.
