Project Union Jack Hood Scoop
Months ago I remembered seeing a photo of the John Cooper Challenge races at Motoringfile.com. Gabe had a picture on his site of a car with a Union Jack hood scoop. I remembered thinking at the time "That's neat. I wonder where you buy that". Months of browsing went by, and I never saw another scoop with anything like it on it.
Then one day I ran across some photos over at Toddsblog of some stripes he had done for a client.
By this time, I suspected that the Union Jack scoop that I had seen on Gabe's site must be a one off, so I started looking around the web. Sure enough, I was only able to find two MINIs with that hood scoop. After looking at several photos of them, I realized that they were both owned by the same guy..... Mark Speller. Mark races in the John Cooper Challenge and has done quite well for himself.
So I email Todd and ask him if this is a do-able thing. I still don't know if Mark Speller's scoop is a custom paint job or a vinyl. Alas, Todd had never done it before and had no time for R&D. All is not lost though, since I decide to give Cooper Flags a try. Lots of good things have been said about Ed and his shop at Metroplex Mini and with good reason. After a few emails, Ed told me he could do the job. Hurray!
