      Some Rollers from h20.. kinda embarassed to post them.. how high I had to ride due to lack of camber and fender roll.. soon tho. But while your all looking check out my buddie's static e36 on the new stance works zero clearance coils - wow, they ride awesome too

      the e36 really does make your car look like a 4x4

      Ok, a real update now.. This post is mostly about storage, preventative maintenance, and giving her some rest..

      Going to school in NY and having home base in RI is getting tricky.. putting miles on the car, leaving it in the school parking garage and the upcoming winter are all fears I'm currently facing... I'm a bit scared of my first winter on bags so this week I'm going to start getting ready..

      Heading home this friday where I will notch my frame, and start the front fenders. Once I feel it's ready for next season (excluding stance adjustments) the wheels are coming off and going into my workshop where I will begin refinishing.

      At the same time the car will be going into storage, heated storage.. I'm hoping this will resolve a few issues- 1. No freezing temps solves a few potential problems 2. Car being on jack stands takes pressure off the bags and could save me bags cracking due to sitting for a long period.

      I hope that in the 3-4 months the car sit I will complete many of the other projects I have discussed.

      1. Going with Votex.. didn't want to but I feel like it will flow better
      2. Clean and polish the poo out of my wheels
      3. Build a show-able management box
      4. Switch to a 5 gallon steel skinny tank
      5. Add a second compressor / update water traps
      6. Add Dump valve (maybe a horn if I'm feeling really saucy)
      7. Find a place who will use my fabric for my interior

      Sparknotes no BS - by the end of the weekend
      frame notched, fenders fixt, car spotless and in storage on jack-stands.


      comments, especially ones regarding how I am storing the car and facing the winter are air are very appreciated

      Suprisingly, it didn't do too bad, even when we got those 2 feet of snow. I found out that our front bumpers work pretty well as snow plows.

      Another useless textual update:

      CCW's are going bye bye. It was fun for a little having wheels on that end but after going to h20 and seeing them on the first three cars I laid my eyes on was a bit disheartening. I'll be going back to 17's and running something most of you have seen before. I think this will be the final set of wheels for a while and I'm going to start working on my air management in a serious way to match the wheels theme

      These Rotiform 3 pc. Concave BLQ's would look sick on your car.

      It's official, next friday new wheels will be purchased

      Also on a side note, will be piecing together some RS's, pretty much because I have a bunch of RS parts floating around and I want to make something cool.
