The paintwork consists of a base yellow colour, combined with a metallic glaze, which has created a lovely play with colours which, in either shade or in sunlight, shows a rich golden-yellow effect with a glittering metallic effect. The base yellow tone is in the style of Porsche racing yellow with the majority of chrome parts now painted in contrasting black, as is the complete roof panel. Underneath the subframes were sand-blasted and repainted. The restoration was rounded off with MK1 tail lights for the perfect retro look. Finally, the Mini was extensively cavity preserved to provide the best possible protection against external influences.
