    This is how it begins. You can't have aftermarket wheels with stock suspension.

    I love your workbench.
  5. What a shame. Looks like you could save them yet. Offer him $800.
  6. I know the feeling. I have the same feels right now. Someone want to buy an E24 for $15k?
  7. Yeah I would love too. I think that's the same one that was $12k a few months ago. Thats too much for a 316 as it will need a JZ installed That Vert is super nice, but its an auto diving board car. 😕
  8. I agree, the price difference is insane. But all land yachts end up cheap as hell. That one is insanley clean considering how beat most of them are now. I wonder what shop its at...🤔 I don't agree with you on the ugliness though.. I assume that M5 is VERY REAL, and that guy just wants to make a quick sale. Here is another in Madison for the same price..... https://chicago.craigslist.org/chc/cto/d/madison-2001-m5-carbon-black/6958133947.html

    What was the issue? Also I never noticed until now that you have an M3 antenna on your car.
  16. Sadly I tried to give him and extra set of seats (FOR FREE) that I acquired. They were Pearl Beige but could have been dyed. He never came and got them.

    Painting metallic panels one at a time is not always the best. There are a bunch of variables to take into account that can cause uniformity issues. For example; Humidity and temp percentages can vary unless you have a controlled booth. This can cause differences in the curing and the overall density of the paint, thus a lighter or darker tone. The angle in which your spray pattern occurs naturally. Let's say you spray a fender and a door on the same side of the car at the same time. If you paint the fender hanging from the ceiling upside down but the door right side up, the metallic will "lay" in a different direction causing the two to appear as slightly different colors/tones when the light hits them and they are right next to each other. FYI I am not a painter by any means, so take this info with a grain of salt .

    Its super easy, you could buy a cheap harbor freight gun and compressor and get great results. That "should be" efficient to get a small job like a trunk done, but it will be running the entire time. If you are looking for a used unit you can get much larger ones for the same price if you have the room.
  19. I saw the car in person at the LS show. I will just say it photographs very well, but I dont think its a $9k car.

    Its too large of a surface to get an even "wetcoat" using a small aerosol can. You might be able to polish it out, but it will be much less work to just shoot it with a gun.
