    Man I swear people are always taking my car to try to sell their parts. I had that happen a couple years ago where they took my pictures and tried to say it was their hood.

    Now for some updates. I have been busy. I just take pictures and it auto uploads and forget about them. But I took a week off this week to unwind, hence updates lol

    7/11/20:

    No idea when I did this. But the date on the pictures say it was July. So I assume it was another COVID project lol

    Had Wayne take my rear deck out since everything else was out. I just did what everyone else did and just cleaned it up and painted black with fabric paint.











    Came out great. It does make the fabric more stiff to the touch, but whatever. Not like I ever touch anything back there.

    Cleaned the vent thing while I was at it. I was going to hit it with Dlux, but lazy




    8/18/20:

    Due to COVID, body shop wasn't really open. But once they were back, I dropped by one day to see my car's progress. Everything still apart.





    He did get the driver's side fender on. It's painted because it came off the AW donor M3 shell.





    Poor carÖso neglectedÖ




    11/11/20:

    I'm pretty sure I went back to work in Sept. Went to NC on a project. Then did 32 straight 16 hr shifts for Hoag here. So when I was free, went to visit the shop.

    Car was being primed and prepped for paint.






    1/18/21:

    Was busy at work. I'm now on a long term project at St. Joseph.

    Car has been painted. Looks good.





    Those ZHP wheels definitely don't fit now



    Like the fronts. I had Wayne flatten the lip while he was at it. So I don't got to deal with rolling fenders or any of that stuff lol



    I think the inner lip usually sticks out like 10mm or so. It's like 2-3mm now


    4/20/21:

    Things are going back on, albeit, at a snails pace lol

    Rear deck is back on. I guess I should do something about those speaker grills. Iím leaving the rear head rests off. Not like anyone sits back there.



    Tail lights are on. Trunk fitted. There are some nicks and scratches on the trunk from where ever Wayne stored it. I don't plan on repainting the trunk since I will be getting a new one. Just waiting on them to make it. I'll have him touch it up in the mean time.




    Dropped by today. I needed quotes about the other car I'm modding

    He put on one of my side moldings. Had to buy M3 ones. He also put on the CSL rails. The rest of the stuff that goes on the trunk.

    I only took pictures of the window trim. Since the rubber on my window trim was bad. Went ahead and powder-coated it. Put the rubber gasket back. Then I did that one DIY with the rubber seal. Hope it holds lol

    Bought the gloss black lower trims while we're at it.





    It looks like I'm going to need new side markers cause that shit is yellow lol

    I'm also starting to work on stuff that I was lazy to do because the car wasn't done. Here's my current to do list:

    • Get tires for ARC-8s
    • SMOG
    • Airbag recall


    Those are the only urgent ones at the moment. Tackle the rest later lol I have a huge list of things to do including suspension upgrade.

    They never really bothered me tbh. I feel like I don't look at the rearview as much as I do the sides because of my blindspot mirrors. But it looks way cleaner without them. I just got to get around making the caps for the holes. Maybe 3d print something. After I fix my 3d printer. No idea what's wrong with it.
