Good on ya for doing the work, I approved of everything aside from those rubber bands you call tires, doesn't do anything for the look IMO.
Keep at it!

Nice build man! Car looks great, love the way it sits, only thing I would change would be the rear camber, good to see another e38 enthusiast out here!

decided to put the e38 on the road for a bit and drive it. had no choice since I'm moving.
got the wheels on, did some maintenance recently too but unfortunately might have to put the brakes project on hold for a month or two until i move into my new house.
also working something out to redo the clear coat on the car and get it shining finally.
for now this is how she sits


raised it a bit to make slightly more functional lol honestly tired of scraping around and not being able to go places because the car is too low

great build i love everything about the car really well made. my next car will be an e38 as well
if there is one think i am not a fan of its the suspension and tires but that's personal style
i like a bit of camber nothing crazy and i like my tires fat on an e38 i would not go under 245s front and 275s rear. that's what i run on my e39 and i would go at least as big on an e38 but that's like i said personal opinion
your car is beautiful great work keep it up i want to see those calipers on

nice work, efforts abound... but can i ask you why you opted for shitty paint? all that hard work and it looks like you used rattle can paint.

Your 7 looks fantastic, I'm jealous! Mind if I ask how much it cost to do the full respray? I'm going to need to sort out the paintwork on my car at some point. I'd love to see this in person.
