New Stripes! New Stripes! There Will Be No New Stripes…

New Stripes! New Stripes! There Will Be No New Stripes… Or will there (with apologies to Strictly Ballroom)?

The new stripes are here and they look great except… that they aren’t quite long enough. They don’t go from the top of the bonnet to the grille, there is about a half inch missing. I’ve read that this is ‘standard’ but I am not sure what I should do. Do I have a gap at the top? At the bottom? Both? Or just give up on the whole stripe fiasco?

Spent the day in Joshua Tree National Park today, Sarah got her first off-roading experience including almost getting stuck in some sand. I tried to take a few arty pictures – MINI meets desert, we’ll see what they come out like tomorrow.
