put it up for sale
Took advantage of the warm weather and filled in the badge holes in my hatch in preparation for the cars makeover. Also took the fender flares off and painted them black..... and discovered a hole rotted underneath the driver rear one.
Oh well, that just means next year I'll be cutting them out and welding on some wider flares!
Doing it right is overrated.

I spent most of the day taking the top apart to adjust the fit, clear silicone under/on everything, condition/clean the rubber seals, to try and stop the famous "leg leak". Now waiting on ANOTHER latch. The USPS tore the box to pieces for the other latch, it fell out of the box, so they delivered me a torn up empty box. Great job USPS!It's not like those things are easy to get
Took off the aftermarket fiberglass bumper.. ( I broke it loose at a steep intersection... woops) and found rusty horors beneath.. Should be an easy fix just ugly.. And yes the horible ricer front clip will go back on as I like it.
Pulled it all apart and removed windsheild to fix the rust there :-)

Found that my dang near 20 year old radiator is leaking at the upper hose, so I spose I will replacing that in the next few weeks....
Grounds, Grounds, Grounds Replace them things.
Divorces, Great Coffee, and Electrics, all start with GOOD Grounds.
Where are my grounds ?
Washed it, swapped in the proper reverse light switch, re-wired my ECU to a prettier location, JB-welded my rearview until tinker mails me the one off of his parts car, test fitted some OG Rial 13x6 ET13's, and drove it to make this stupid video of my 750i with open headers:
Miley, the golf carpet is the cat's meow.
It's 106 miles to Chicago, we got a full tank of gas, half a pack of cigarettes, it's dark... and we're wearing sunglasses.
okay i finished the front bumper..
i made some changes..
I decided that i wanted more visible blinkers.. So i bought some tiny little marker lights and wired them to the existing blinkers so that they would blink when the marker lights do. I ran the wires through the tube that I used for the bumper.. so its really clean looking. I will get a picture in the morning. I'm really digging these tube bumpers
It was dark when i finished so i will snap some pics for you guys when i get a chance tomorrow!
speedometer cable came in today.. anyone know where i can get instructions on how to install it?
I'm torn on keeping it silver.. or painting it black like the back one.. I kind of like the silver.. which would mean taking the paint off the rear one to match it.. so idk lol
pulled it outta the garage on the weekend for the first time this year. gave it a quick wash and vacuum and tossed the keys to the wife. job done. gotta get the steering looked at tomorrow though.
still, two summers and this will be the first service issue other than a couple of teething issues when it was completed. not expecting anything else this year (just jixed it i know )
well last night i drove from north east pa to southern md... with the top down... longest trip since the motor swap was done... no issues!!!
i used to have a great quote... it was by Ledjetta...
"doing body work to fit a set of Konig's is like buying a new suit to nail a hooker"
