Thanks for the compliments. And really you have the same paint id love to see some picturess man. i just got it all sanded polished and waxed so it looks awesome.. heading to woodward this weekend with my bro so should be a good time. As for the bodywork i had to repaint the right rear door because of a basketball hitting it but other than that everything is just as good as when it left the booth. Just have to oil it like crazy now. The outer trim around the handle was taken off. and yeah caliper covers arent the best but i was going to paint them red but i liked the look of these and they were just as cheap, and for everyday driving, even hard braking brembos are not needed so unless i get a substantial hp increase i will not need the real brembos.

Looks like good work was done. Car looks good.

I have never seen you around Sarnia before. You should come to a London meet some time, or have a few guys from Windsor and Chatham, and meet in Chatham.

Looks good! Only thing I wouldn't have done is delete the door mouldings, it takes away from the lines of the e36 as it was designed.

I dream of a new paint job all the time...but it's more expensive than the car is worth After people sitting on my hood at a party left a big scuff, I'm really depressed, but there were scratches, dents, and clear coat scuffs all over prior to that anyway.

You mentioned oiling the paint? What does that do?

yeah id love to go to a london meet or something, and im always driving around sarnia so if your there youll most likely see me. if you have one or one in chatam let me know and ill come. as for the mouldings, without them the whole look is changed, for the better in my opinion. and yeah the paint alone cost the same as the car for me and we did all the work so it is expensive. i am looking to sell it though if anyone is interested, may need the money for university (what i tell my mom) but will probably do a e30 next. you get it professionally oiled by krown or whoever is local and that keeps it from rusting. all cars with new paint should have it done unless they want to be in and out of the body shop all the time.
