Stone Guards

According to the oCoop website, stone guards placed on the Classic Mini's headlights complement the rally look. In general terms, adding the stone guards involves unscrewing the outer headlight rim, hooking three clips around the back of that rim, and replacing the headlight. The stone guard can be attached to the headlight by bending the clips to hold it in place.

Roof Decal

Applying a vinyl roof decal to your Classic Mini Cooper gives it a different look, whether you want a classic rally appearance or a more customised look. According to the Mini Decals website, roof decals are applied by spraying application fluid on the roof surface, positioning the decal and using a squeegee to move any remaining application fluid from the centre. The application paper can be removed after 10 minutes, and the roof decal is in place.

Under Seat Speaker Board

The general procedure for adding a speaker board under the Mini seat starts by cutting a piece of medium density fiberboard (MDF)--which is at least 45 inches wide and 8 inches tall--according to the template found on the Mini Projects website. Cover the MDF in carpet or vinyl to match your interior, or simply paint the board. Refer to your speakers' manufacturer when cutting the holes into the board. Afix the MDF onto your Classic Mini Cooper with brackets.
