Mini Cooper — Painted Dash with a Twist

queen mini-paint10 I took it to the Bosch Service center in Kössen, Austria that actually specializes in Mini Coopers. That’s great for me, it is less than ten miles from where I live. (The photo at the top of my blog was taken in Kössen.) They also happen to have a good paint shop, so I decided to go ahead and get my gray/silver plastic interior trim painted in metallic laser blue. On the dash the inserts were previously brushed aluminum, so on Ebay I found some used black inserts and had them painted — I’ve still got the original brushed aluminum if anyone is interested in them.

While I was waiting to get my Mini back, I was checking out some interior accessories, and happened upon these headrests and doorpull and glovebox opener coversMini paint12 Mini paint8
I found the covers and headrests here @ GoBadges, but because I live in Europe I ordered them from their distributor here:  dress4mini

The quality is excellent and they arrived very well packed and in perfect condition.

The headrests are almost identical to the checkerboard on my rear view mirror cover.
