What started out as an Electric Blue '03 Cooper S, running 17" BBS RK's is now getting a make over. It was feeling a little bit dated so I thought a refresh would be good.This is what it looked like before. It's a bone stock daily driver with some decals. The union jack on the roof was done by MotorsportPlayground.So then Project "Kermit" begins. I chose to go with the Lamborghini green "Verde Ithaca", hence why "Kermit". *laughs*So off it went to the paint shop...I was a bit skeptical when I first saw it with the color. It didn't really look good. I went home thinking, what have I done! But it grew on me after I had a few other things done.So far, this is what that has been done. I had all the roof and chrome bits blacked out. A JCW front bumper, rear bumper and side skirts were fitted.Door handles, the badges will have to be blacked out as well. I was supposed to fit the carbon fiber door handles, gas cap and head light surrounds but right now, looks like many of the parts so not fit well so I am not taking the risk. Might as well black everything out first and see what fits over it later. The Cooper S grills have been blacked out too, leaving the S chrome to stand out. Will be getting some black out side signals and LED's to compliment it.The rims have been powder coated black. I took the liberty of spraying the calipers bright red as well.Joey moded the face lifted lights. It's not complete yet, I want to black out the round bit surrounding the projector ballast at the top as well.Face lifted the tail lights as well with a twist, they are LED's. Will have to black out that chrome surrounding bit too... https://lh6.googleusercontent.com/-1JUq_UQG2VU/Tkk8EiUuk6I/AAAAAAAANUw/se8S128xJB4/s640/iPhone%2525204%252520111%252520%25255B800x600%25255D.jpgReplaced the third brake light with a blacked out one. It runs LED's now too and they are super bright.https://lh5.googleusercontent.com/-jsCBpybg-qw/Tkk62GhjQgI/AAAAAAAANUU/4bzjqUkcONM/s640/iPhone%2525204%252520109%252520%25255B800x600%25255D.jpghttps://lh3.googleusercontent.com/-qnuz_Uvmru4/Tkk8FJ11-cI/AAAAAAAANVI/scoikL9Yt4I/s640/iPhone%2525204%252520115%252520%25255B800x600%25255D.jpgSo far I think it's coming along pretty nicely. https://lh4.googleusercontent.com/-lqMkzWkiVjU/Tkk619BTMgI/AAAAAAAANUE/COXCU3VZP7g/s640/iPhone%2525204%252520106%252520%25255B800x600%25255D.jpgAny other suggestions?more pictures here.
