You're right: the cooling effect is given also, if i install a scoop. But the negative touch comes with the spoiler effects. With every scoop that I attach below the vehicle , it brings the spoiler effect into this game.

The air which runs along the scoop will be pressed against the radiator...So long its ok.
After passing the radiators mesh the air is pressed against the floor. The lift force will increase, if there is no chance to vent the air with less resistance as possible.

That, i think will make the rear even lighter at high velocities.
The light rear of the Mini + Spoiler can bring it on the highway to fatal consequences.

So, I guess I should rethink the concept, maybe.

Found a solution: i think i install some Naca duct instead of a scoop. This will give me much less of circulated compressed air under the car



i know there is a lot of overengineered thinking here, but so what...thats me

Default Rear Frame vent and air supply

still not left the forum

i'd like to share my idea of how i want to install the rad in the rear frame.

Me, myself and Katja (aka CATIA) came to this:

The radiator is attached to the frame at an angle 5°:


How it looks inside of the frame:



rear view: vents and NACA in the cover:


And front view:



side view with spoile inside to force the air throug the rad:

Hi Folks,

something done in da "G".

Finally I found a bit more time to do some on the Mini.

So the cover of the rear frame is going to take shape:










And attached some vent holes to let the warm air out:







Also i finished the dash:









The second layer covers the ECU and all of the electrics to get a perfect finish.

Also i began with the exhaust:

Outer Exhaust brackets:





Distance - exhaust - floor: 6cm

Default Time to apply stone chip

After finished welding the last bolts for the petrol tank and preparing the last parts for the exhaust system, i finally applied the stone chip at the whole floor "mmmhhh shiny "






Also a last view on the exhaust chamber untill the exhaust will sit in




And the wheel housings:

Digital work on the rear frame finalized

So this is what i want to go for:

Frame perspective from above:





Side view (Air flow with spoiler) - without frame





with frame:

The tank is going to stay at its old place. But i am thinking about stretching it into the area where normally the exhaust pipe was.

the warm air of the radiator will hopefully go past the tank. Thats the reason for this "spoiler thing"

something to add: `87 Mayfair Sport went into my collection of Minis :P

next year it will get a historic license, hopefully:



But first i have to do a lot against the rust, including the original lights have to be mounted when finished. Also i had to remove several nonsense from the vehicle ^^. 12 inch speakers in the back seat OO. Floor light under the car.... Oh heaven help me ...
