We are getting most of our new parts from Mini Mania, but the Import Carlisle show would prove to be a great place to find some NOS—New old Stock—and used parts for our Austin Mini Cooper S.

At Carlisle, pickings tend to be better for MG, Jaguar and Triumph parts, but we did find the Lucas headlight we needed to replace the one we had with no low beam circuit.

We also found some cool NOS chrome “whisker” pieces to go on the ends of our moustache grille.

Next we found some original tools and a driver’s manual to complete our concours correct tool kit.
