MINI a day - final entry

A day late and a dollar short. The story of my life. Anyway, I’m still posting two MINIs to finish off 2005 so first I give you a new design. A curved checkerboard single stripe in metallic silver on a black convertible.

And finally for 2005 Baron MINI gave me the opportunity and honor to produce a Todd Pearson Signature Series MINI Cooper. I chose a Union Jack design inspired by the Austin Powers MINI complete with a Todd Pearson Signature Series indicia on the rear bumper. This MINI is currently available on ebay, at least for the next three days. I’m pretty proud and honored to have been given the opportunity to do this car. I hope someone falls in love with it and buys it so that I’ll be able to do another Signature Series in 2006.

Click on the ebay listing for more great pics of this car.

Enjoy and Happy New Year.

BTW, I think that makes 190 MINIs completed to date. Just thought I’d tag that on. : )

Happy New Year.

Todd that signature series is amazing. If I ever get a mini, I am getting you to come here to detail it!

BTW if i get a new powerbook next year, I want to commission you to make me union jack detail for it again.

Hope your well mate

Todd, I think you’re the coolest person in the universe. The Todd Pearson Signature Series? Wow. Well done.

In my mind, I’m already designing the Mini I’m trading in the Jetta for. Nice work, my friend.

Over the top Todd - (meant in a good way)

Wish you great health in the new year

The Todd Pearson Signature Series is pretty amazing. How long did it take to put all the stripes on?

Not really my style, but really well executed! How long’d this take you to do?

This job took me about two and a half days to complete. It didn’t take all of that sine I put stripes on about three other MINIs in the same time so I’m guessing between 15-20 hours including design time.

It would have taken less time but I removed and re-applied a number of parts I didn’t like the way they laid down. The term “good enough” is not in my vocabulary. : )

I wish I would have known about the Austin Powers mini earlier.. I would have bid!

wow, that looks amazing. kinda neat to have a ‘signature series’ name after you, eh? keep up the good work! (puts my factory bonnet stripes to shame).
