      i was going back and forth with a white E34 525i the whole way. not racing, just having fun. i was still nervous in the corners because when i drove that road with 4 blown struts it was like playing russian roulette.

      haha - I just drove it last night on my way back from a gig in Seymour to Waterbury. I love the scenery during the day (in some parts) and all the bends. Best part is though . . . no place for the cops to hide going Rt 8 south Today I finally washed it for the first time since like September and started cleaning & polishing up the new wheels. The PO let them get WAY outta hand because the stuff was caked on in layers - I needed a screw driver to break through some of it and I scrubbed so hard with brillo pads that I actually took some of the paint off in some areas! Mesh wheels SUCK when it comes to cleaning em

      Removed the knee bar, glove box, center vent trim panel, and instrument cluster. Cleaned up a lot of strange stereo wiring. installed a fog light harness and relay. Removed the left front fender, going to paint tomorrow! The fender that is.....
      Will work on reassembling the interior through the week. Need to take both front calipers off and repaint them. Install the fog lights. Hope to have the fender back on a week from today!

      Gave it a bath, repainted the grille, dropped the plate to under the bumper, made covers for the fog lights/turn signals. Can't decide on yellow or smoked though.

      Scored a rust-free front passenger door. Best part, it was only $25 at the local pull it yourself. They were having a half-off everything special. Got a bunch of other random stuff too, but it was pretty picked through already.

      Well not today - but all over the past weekend: Gave it a bath, polished up the MkIII wheels that had MASSIVE amounts of break dust and other stuff on em - took me 4 hours in the garage on Saturday night but well worth it. Here's a preview of what's to come: WARNING - cell phone pic:
