Classic Mini Genuine Front Nose Panel 76 & Earlier
$499.95 Classic Mini Genuine Front Nose Panel 76 & Earlier
This early front (nose) panel will fit any Mini manufactured before 1976 (Mk I, II or III). It is probably easier to replace the entire panel than to repair a damaged one, especially if it's been hit more than once! Later Minis, with rubber mounted subframes, use panel MS4L.
The panel is essentially the Mk III panel and has the brake cooling cutouts on the valence, the vertical bar as a grille support, wide brackets for mounting the license plate/registration number and the teardrop shaped opening for the fresh air intake behind where the grille mounts.

Note: This panel normally comes without  factory primer applied.

Restoration of a Classic Mini Cooper continues in this Chapter 3 of the story. Earlier this month was Election Day 2012 and it was a nail biter. The day before was historic too but for different reasons. It was the day I tack welded a panel in place on Snarkey’s shell, the first salvo in the direction of reconstruction, rather than de-construction. I could barely sleep last...
