Forgot to mention that we can also do them with a special checker pattern, looks choice!

They are made to order so we can absolutely do them for the later cars. Our shop car is a 75, so we tend to base most of our prototypes off it, however we have some local customer cars that are the later rover minis we could get the dimensions from.


We really like them but everyone has their own taste. They were inspired by the old Porsche 911 and Toyota FJ40 door pulls. They give a really nice feel when closing the door, and there is just something nice about touching high quality leather over plastic of cold metal.

well don't lay it too flat, make a loop so you can insert your 4 fingers in to grab it., kinda like the one they use in some public utility bus (or coach, as you call it here in the US)

Must be me then Coz I think they look terrible! Not the handle itself that looks very nice (in a 30's 40's car perfect) but the application seems all wrong to me? Now't wrong with some nice chrome and plastic Austin America ones...........

Mini's are like buses they come along in a bunch
