I'm pushing this New Mini through a quick build. This time yesterday, it was nothing more than a painted body and lots of unassembled and unpainted parts.

Why am I calling this build Oh Canada?

Because this is going on the roof and the front sides of the side view mirrors. They're made of the same stuff as the graphics on 1:1 cars (automotive grade vinyl) and cost me all of $3.95US including shipping for enough to do two cars.

The flags are 1:1 automotive grade vinyl made by the fine folks at Flamin Frog.

For considerably less than $5, I've got enough to do two cars.

That's pretty cool! Looks almost like an optical illusion on the roof.

That is really nice work John. Your Mini's paint job looks flawless. I like the flag....its better than the usual Union Jack. Great work on the garage also.

Very nice, I like the Canadian flag idea. Any problems with the kit itself? I had head light fitment and chrome that came off at the slightest touch.

Thanks!

I'd agree more so about the chrome. I didn't have much of a problem with the headlights but the chrome is less than perfect.
