      They're the bumper mounts, I took the bumper off so painting would be easier. They're actually supposed to be front bumper mounts but I made them work on the rear cause my old ones rotted.

      nice dash config

      glad you decided to go with the cabriolet headlight switch
      those rotary rabbit ones suck so bad
      and atleast you can get NEW replacements for your cabriolet headlight switch
      usually just the dimmer portion of the switch goes bad
      easy fix to jumper two pins together and no more dimmer function, stays full bright 100%

      for a rotary one however the overhead lamp is controlled by the rotor switch, really annoying

      Haha, mine is an actual pool ball, tapped and threaded.

      And the only reason I kept the Cabby headlight switch was because the plugs weren't the same, and I didn't feel like rewiring all that crap lol.

      And as for the paint scheme, you'll have to wait and see!

      Love the headliner! Hard to do? I was thinking of trying a sturdy "base" liner with zippers/buttons sewn along the sides/front so I's can change it up easily with different fabrics/patterns.

      Also, when the poly arm bushings break in, tell us (me) how they ride please.

      Will do!

      And that's a cool idea! Never thought of that. My headliner wasn't too hard to do, it's actually a shower curtain believe it or not. I used spray adhesive to stick it up, but it kept falling back down, partly I believe because the roof moves. So I took a needle and thread and just stitched it in place in a few spots so it doesn't droop.

      Do work!



      The corner of this fender was dented in from when I slid (very slowly) into a tree a couple winters ago.

      Ahahaha, it does look cool however it's a design I have not yet perfected. It's quite flimsy, I used a U shaped bar and attached it to the hood and rad support so the hood can swing out and hang down over the headlights like the old BMW's. I still need to find a way to sturdy it up and install some hood shocks.

      I actually did it because when I replaced my front end the hood latch no longer lined up so I couldn't hold it down.

      I was going to ask you the same thing about the hood. Maybe I'll poke around an e30 and check out that design some and figure something out and toss you some ideas. :p

      I got lots of time on my hands right now haha.

      Already done that. I actually have a hood hinge out of an old Beemer, to make it fit I'd have to do some serious cutting and welding.

      On another note, we finally got my friends Cabby running! We call it Blues Clues because so far it's been full of weird mystery problems. And over the past few weeks it's been dying due to a crappy ignition coil connections and a broken plug wire at the coil. My car has a sister now!

      And yes, that's a MK2 bumper.

      Saab 900 classics had a pretty neat hinge solution. Might be worth a look.
