Union flag bonnet decoration

I’ve seen one or two S 1’s and 2’s with union flags painted on their bonnets and I found them rather eye catching. Has anyone done this using a vinyl wrap? Have;
2015 90 XS SW in Corris grey
2015 90 Heritage (converted to a rag top)
1961 2.25 petrol 88" in marine blue
Had;
03 plate Defender 90 station wagon
T reg Defender 90 hardtop
E reg 90 hardtop

My bonnet is vinyl wrapped, had it done by my local sign writing place with no issues. The first wrap lasted 3 or 4 years before the red faded. The second vinyl wrap seems to be coping better with the sun.

We Painted ours, love it. All the family involved and actually more tricky than it looks especially with the wheel holder.


Love it though Thumbs Up


Bought a spare bonnet 2 years ago for £12 Very Happy it needed repairs on the inside but sorted that and sanded down with little lad.

Thanks everyone, especially the photo comments. Just need a bit of milder weather now - these days I don’t reckon too much on playing in the garage when there’s a warm lounge to loaf about in. Watch out for my ‘how not to paint your bonnet’ stories coming here soon . . Have;

Just watched a video reviewing the face lifted 2021 Mini Countryman. The American presenter said he liked the new design for the rear lights. He added, "I just love the English flag in those lights". Whoops

Maybe he doesn't like the Scottish and Irish bits?
