Hi Does anyone have a genuine picture of the engine bay of a Mini Cooper that has been converted by John Cooper garages ?
Also were the converted heads ever painted blue ? Just need to clear up some issues before starting a renovation Thanks

I can't help you with an engine bay shot, but I have had two Cooper Conversions.  The first was a Mainstream Cooper and the second a 998 conversion.  In both cases the cylinder head was blue.

Alfabee71,

 

I have a JCC on a 1990 Flame if that helps.  I do know that the majority of heads were painted a fairly bright blue colour. I think that these were the ones supplied by Janspeed.  But not all heads were blue. Mine is actually a yellow-green colour and it's been untouched since 1990 when it was fitted.

Hi All thanks for the replies a real help. I'll probably be asking more questions later in the renovation. If there are anymore of these types of querks with the JC Conversion cars it would be very useful to know.
Thanks again

Here's one of the JCC heads in blue to give you an idea of the colour.
