Default GNAT's Latest 4/20

Both of these took longer then expected and are not fully complete but are functional. Took a bit of re-engineering to get the bar in correctly.

Thanks...

Seats are Momo RS2GT. Currently black with gray alcantra bolsters. I'd say in about 2-3 months the entire interior will be redone with a Space Blue/Silver theme so the seats will be recovered. I'll look in my files and see if I have a picture of the seat.

The momo steering wheel is HOT. Where did you get them? wheel/adaptor. What's seating below the tach?

Any Momo dealer will have both the wheel and the hub, however it's not listed for a Mini as neither Momo or Sparco make one directly for a Mini. There is a thread on NAM that honestly I'm to lazy to look up for you right now that gives the Momo hub parts # and shows what needs to be machined off to retain the self cancel on the turn signals and horn button functionality.

Discalimer.... Changing the steering wheel WILL disable the front airbag cause it's not there at all. There are also some tricks to keep the airbag light from coming on that have to be done. Some dealers will let you sign a waiver and then they will turn the light off.

Yeah what Flamez said. V1 remote. Not for much longer, going to take it apart and work into the dash somehow.

Safety Devices made bar. It's really the back 1/2 of their full cage. We did some mods to remove the tabs for forward facing bars.

See http://stable-energies.com/prodinfo.asp?number=SD-B24

Stable Energies imports these to the US. They only make one for a non-sunroof Mini. To install in a sunroof Mini you have to mod the feet.

I bought it through a Mini based business with it drop shipped from Stable Energies. If I had to do it again I'd cut out the middleman and go straight to Stable Energies.

See post # 9 above.

Ok, I looked up the thread on NAM, see post # 11 in http://www.northamericanmotoring.com...mo+hub+2008%27
