    Nothing big to report. Car is solid as ever and puts a huge smile on my face every day.

    I polished my glass. Huge difference! I didn't realize i was living in the dark ages. This was from the griots class cleaning setup... freaking love their products.

    Love that interior. I am going to have to try that glass polish, that looks awesome.

    Probably easier to paint or wrap the dash trim pieces. I got lucky when I swapped in my driver side glove box and was able to find one piece of wood trim new from BMW still and the other came up on ebay a year or so later.

    I imagine removing the turbine centers takes away the performance benefit.

    Car looks great though! Glad another one was saved!

    Photobucket sucks!

    Long live the E34!

    Hi guys,

    Its time for the beginning of my next big thing! I'll start it off with a teaser which is unfortunate because the color is so beautiful. <3




    Its going to be a long and slow process. I'm only going to be working on this for a few hours per week. Wish me luck!

    Fantastic job thus far! I had a '93 M5 in Calypso with a dove interior. Man I miss that car!
