    Ignore the gas pump :

    You can't really see the CF on the roof as well. But don't worry, I got you guys covered with this update to my CSL roof thread on m3forum:



    Still a few things needed to be done on my car and I should be good for this modding year:
    - adjust height (m3 fender arch sits higher than non-m, so there's a gap now)
    - vinyl window trim gloss black (have vinyl, just lazy lol)
    - install CSL rails (stock ones are on right now, waiting for them to come in)
    - re-attach my angel eye wiring
    - clear bra (should be done in a week)
    - detail (courtesy of Brian N.)

    I think that's all that is needed, I forgot

    Yeah its missing all the roof pictures lol I couldn't figure out why it only shows the car pictures but not the roof lol

    It's just black rails without the openings for the roof rack. It will sit in nicer since I repainted my current rails and couldn't save the rubber so now there's a huge gap.

    Brian's doing good with his new m3. He never drives it though, and he doesn't have money to mod it either lol His sedan has gone to shit ever since my friend bought it from him. So sad LOL

    So yesterday, I spent the day running around picking up stuff that we needed for the short detail/paint correction needed for the clear bra. I dropped off the car to get a few minor adjustments as I mentioned and got the car back the same day. Washed it too so that it could be ready :excited:

    Then this morning at 6am, we started the detail so that I could make my 9am appointment for clear bra (I didn't make it : more on it later).

    Brian N. did basically all the work, I only did the parts that required hand polishing lol

    Brian started off claying the car, but because of fresh paint, it took all of like 15 mins to do the front and roof lol

    Next was the CF roof (used an MF pad w/ Menzerna FG 400)




    Then the hood next using a brand new MF pad with the same polish. Here's a shot of him on the vents:




    Didn't take any pictures of the fenders since while he was doing that, i was hand polishing the kidney grill area. I also watched him do the headlights. My headlights weren't that bad, but might as well since it's getting covered too.

    Next up was the front bumper:






    Finally went back to the CF roof to make it extra glossy. Cause you know, that's the most important piece (Used a white foam pad w/ Menzerna SF4500):




    While he was doing the finishing touches on the roof, i hand polished the door cups since that was getting covered too.

    Yep the roof looked like glass :str8pimpi. So nice. Then with our crappy phones :banghead:, we tried to take pictures of it cause this would be the only time you'd be able to see it after polishing and before clear bra.

    Nothing came out great, but here are my attempts anyways:






    So back to the 9am time. When we decided to go ahead and make the roof more glossy I was already cutting it close. Then I wasted more time by trying to take pictures of it. I ended up 30ish minutes late :lmao: But they were cool about it though.

    Special thanks to Brian N. for waking up early, driving up here just to detail :bow: Now go buy the roof already
