so finaly my car has some paint on it.. the exterior is still not painted becuase I just picked up the exhaust opening for my f/g bumper that eurostyle made for me .. My body guy is modding my bumper for the dual exhaust :-)

My interior is finally painted and almost done.. its about 85% done.. Pictures below..

Also for those who wanted to know.. Poppers in the rear for my shaved doors..

So did you mold the doors? Or is laminated with fibergalss?. As far as the dash goes did you sand off the vinyl then fiberglass it? or did you just sand and paint it?I am doing some Carbon fiber work to my e30 and whatever colour i do the exterior I will tint the resin to match. That is some sweet bodywork.*th-up*. Also shaving the doorlocks and washers. Do you use a remote lock and is the washers hooked up to wipers now?

If you plan on making the ENTIRE car one color (the blue is gonna be the same inside and out) than that car is gonna look amazing!

Its kinda risky doing a LOTTA body work to BMW's IMO, cause one wrong move, and the whole car looks like CRAP!


So far, the car is come along SWEET!

thanx..

The exterior will be that blue u see without the pearl and my dash is the blue u see with the pearl.. i never planned for this to happend but in the end it looks better when the dash stands out more then the exterior..

My interior is made up of two process's.

Fabric
- for fabric my body guy sanded primed painted clear/ct .
Plastic
- sand, Fine polyester putty , sand, prime, paint..

C/F sound intresting PM and can u give me info on the process please :-)

And what do you mean by this ? "So did you mold the doors? Or is laminated with fibergalss?. "

here come the updates

Looks really cool, but did you paint over everything on the dash...all the vents and the switches? How is that going to hold up

suicide
01-31-2004, 02:20 AM
should hold just as good as plastic.. ITs the same as touching ur cars exterior paint constantly.. as long as i don't abuse the paint it will be fine,,/.... and about heat and cooling through the vents.. i don't see there being a problem becuase the heat is hitting the back side of the paint and not the front..

Looks good! I wasn't really sure what colour you were going to paint the car, but I feel you've made a nice choice *th-up*

p.s. I hope the guy removed the vent grills, and dials before painting them...you wouldn't want the underside to be bare...

p.p.s. does this mean you'll have to wash and wax your interior now ?? :D

Damn bro... your interior looks hot. Just be careful when people are in your car so they dont scratch your dash paint. Can't wait to see the finished product*th-up*

What I meant about mold the doors was you can sand and fill your doors and lay fiberglass over them or carbon fiber if you wish. Same with the dash. As for the doors you could have put fiberglass over top and used it for a mold to make a door panel completly out of fiberglass.Yours will look sweet.
