Project "Kermit": Diffused!

Kermit's back. The rear diffuser has been painted black. From this...



To this...



There were a couple more things that were done. Minor stuff. My passenger side LED tail lights blew 3 LED's. Had to remove the whole thing and replace just 3 LED's and it was a tedious job.



The front angel eyes daylight lamps had one bulb fused.



The drivers side fog lamp fused. All of these had been replaced and repaired.



My passenger window was not working too. It's a common problem for the mini cooper. The window motor always looses contact with use and age. The motor has been serviced and it works again. Let's see how long it'll last...

Oh, I've also fitted the M7 carbon fiber splitter. They didn't use the recommended mounting position for the rod links but it's fine.





The Alta 2% oversized lightened crank pulley was installed but I can't seem to feel much of a difference. Exhaust seems to be louder but that could just be me. I feel like the exhaust is too restrictive for the current setup now. I'll probably go custom a 2 1/2 inch system soon and quiet it down a little. Plus it's still missing a tail pipe.

Still waiting for the JCW carbon fiber Aero wing and the projector fog lights to get here...

No ler, was fused or something. Had to open up and change. My mech said apparently the LED's he used were slightly different. I can't tell the difference honestly so it doesn't matter. Hahahaha!
