Sure! I don't have that many more, I thought I did, but I'm kind of a focused guy, once I got going I didn't stop as often as I should have to take pics. Anyway, here are some more, including one where I put fiberglass over the metal I riveted in (I can't weld, but I'm going to learn)...Steve, if you want, PM me, I'd like to come by and check out your car, I'm just over here in Whitby.

Holy crap batman! What a beaut you turned that E30 into. Nothing better then bringing life to a old car and making it look like the gem it once was.

P.S. PM inbound!

lol, yes it is. I'm going to try to cut the mat somehow without damaging it too much.

Funny, I don't remember that in the thread for inexpensive power upgrades!!

Thanks, I think it took 15 cans. I do have a lot of runs when you see it up close, but I know what the problem was-didn't wait long enough between coats as it was a little cold that day.

Thanks, Matt. Nice to meet you at the cruise. Did you see the pics of your car on the cruise forum?

Holy crap, Steve, you are ambitious!!!

I'll tell you what, if you can get it ready by Monday, I'll not only head out for coffee with the cars, I'll buy yours!! (and maybe even a donut as well!)

All joking aside, keep up the good work, good progress already.

Well I sat out to get the driver side done today. Stupid me forgot that the vapor return, fuel line and brake lines run just under the seat along the frame rail. Guess who almost blew themselves up not thinking about it =\ Yep! I saw fuel pee from the little cut I made in the fuel line =\ So I'll have to replace that part of the line later on this week. But almost completely finished the floor. It looks so pretty all shinny and all lol. Oh, if you want, you can bring the car over and we can hammer away at your parking brake issue if you'd like. I got lots of power tools if you need. Not to mention I'd love to look at your book so I can find out that Rad hose.
