Thanks man. I won't lie though. I baby the inside of it. I would love to find a set of e30 m3 rears to complete it.

I had the logo centered but it never looked right when it was in gear. So I off centered it and it seems to look better when left in gear now.

Well I decided to color match the plastic bumpers. Even though it's Schwartz the black bumpers were bothering me. Thought I would give you guys a teaser.....The paint came out much better than I expected. So much that I am tempted to just spray the whole car. Still have to watersand and polish them.
Lots more to come. New lower valance, spoiler, rims, suspension..... Stay tuned, new look for 2012!!

Anyone have a fresh set of rondels laying around? I'd be glad to take them off your hands.

Thanks

Enjoy.

Just a shitty teaser pic! But the bumpers are painted and installed. I am really satisfied with the outcome. I know the color is slightly different so I hope it's not too noticeable in the sun.
I'll update better pics once I put the car together. I'll probably g3/polish/wax the car this weekend to try and get everything uniform. Just waiting for my rims to come in to get all the suspension bits installed.

More to come!
Thanks

Lol will do!

I should have it fully mounted this weekend. I painted the fiberglass part body color. My trunk is flat black so I'm hoping it will make it pop a little more. If it doesn't suit it I will just paint it black with plasti dip. Has anyone else used this stuff? It's amazing. Peels right off if you don't like it lol.
My friend painted his whole car with 10 cans. Look pretty good for rattle can and it peels right off when you want. Home hardware sells it for 13 bucks a can or 80 bucks for a box of 8. Grab it while you can because the worker told me that home depot bought the rights to sell it and it will be almost 30 bucks a can for it.

How did you swap ellipsoids onto your car? I have sealed beams in my 86 and I'm having trouble!

^^ sent you a pm

Went by today to put back the lights and grills. I can't seem to decide between the chrome kidneys or the black kidneys. Keep in mind that the rest of the chrome trim on the car has been painted black.

Here are a few quick pics.

Well I'll most likely roll with both. One on and one in the trunk. Lol.

Once I have finished polishing it and it's fully assembled I'll figure which one to Rock.
Going to attempt to drill holes in the trunk for the spoiler install tonight. Anyone have a clean shwarz black trunk? Scott? Lol
