Just below and under the rear bumper of all Mini sedans is a panel called the 'rear valence'. As this is on the bottom edge of the rear of the car and slightly hidden by the rear bumper this panel is often overlooked. But as it is also right behind the rear wheels it also see's a lot of water & dirt and thus ALSO rusts! Spot wleded in place this relatively simply panel is easy to replace! This genuine panel is as fitted to all models prior to 1983 (those without rear fog lamps).
