Would you believe I have the part number for the aero stripe in red/yellow/orange... now do you think I can actually get said stripe from the dealer still? Good luck to me!

So harsh John! The "is" lip is so small though... I hate it. Mtech e28 is the goal, but I think I'll rock this for a while just to make you sick to your stomach.

That's all I've got.

I like the back spoiler. I've never seen it before and it's pretty unique for it's look like all the other OEM spoilers that came with the E30's. I like the e-brake for sure, very nice! Not to mention the seats

I wish I had that interior to sell to you. At the same time, I would hope that you could afford it!$$ No worries about the OBC, it's sitting in my car waiting. Maybe you can pick it up at Bimmercruise!

Right after you make me a drilling template from your trunk!

(I could put on the AC Schnitzer spoiler I have kicking around in the basement... only four holes... or the Hella spoiler, but still it's all about the paint issue, and how I'm too poor/lazy to get it painted.)

Throw a dart for next weeks "flavour of the week" spoiler:



Oh and I though of a come-back for John. John, I hate your VW BBS RA's. They're tucked too much and your tires are too small!!

Scott, Just take the spoiler; I used a sponge like packing material but this didn't work so well because it was stretchy. Maybe use some cardboard sheet you get from GT or Staples. Press the cardboard onto the studs to make it go through. tape it to the spoiler and then use pencil to mark the outline of the spoiler. Cut it out, tape it to the trunk - obviously making sure it lines up. Then use a punch for new starter holes and then drill. I eye balled mine because the template failed. I didn't want to wait. Shouldn't take more then half an hour. Heck, bring the damned thing by and we'll Get ER DONE!!!

It is kinda droopy. It's been unused for so long I though it would tigh.. ah nevermind.

All in good time man... the list is long... I can only do so much.

1. Clutch
2. Front calipers and full system bleed
3. New brake pads all around
4. Rear brake sensor wire is hanging on the ground and the light is on.
5. Glass moonroof
6. Purchase "is" lip, get it painted
7. Replace front windshield (thanks for yours btw)
8. Install Husco center console armrest (shipping soon from Cali.)
9. Alternator belt replacement
10. Bolt on Euroweaves
11. Rear signal, fog, tail are out.
12. Get track safety by first week in september!

Ernie, I know how to make the template, its just getting it mounted high/low enough so that it fits the contour of the trunk edge properly. Thats all that worries me. It's gotta look right!

The armrest has arrived! So excited over misc non go-fast parts. Kinda sad really.

The car still waits for clutch work, but I will, I repeat; I will have it ready for the September ADS at Mosport!

All I have to say is.........uh........yeah, never mind. Mine is still rocking 1000km per week when it's not mysteriously dieing at the the autocrosses. Yours has not seen the asphalt this good driving season.

Not to mention, you buy a stupid armrest, but no clutch??? What's wrong with this picture?

It's not a matter of buying the clutch. It's sitting waiting for me at Budds. I've got the car out of it's resting spot and over to my parents where all my tools are. It's just a matter of getting to work on it. Baseball is over for me in a week, so once that is taken care of, I'll start turning wrenches. You're more than welcome to put a few more km's on your bucket and and come help me! If I had put the clutch in that car back in April, I'd be driving it all over the place on the euroweaves, so by the time Sept rolled around, I'd be needing a new set of tires, which I can't afford. So me not driving the coupe is a good thing, believe it or not. Truuuuust me!
