    Final piece is dyed. Now everything is ready for Brian to do top coats and reassembly. Trevor cleaned the bay and installed the pedals.

    ESS supercharger will be shipping this week. Now just have to wait for the engine and head work to be finished.

    I did dye it cinnamon, did it by hand so it's not as perfect as your seats will be but for my first time doing it I was pretty happy.

    If I ever have it redone in the future I'll find someone local to spray it instead of doing it by hand

    Yeah. Brian (Redshift) is doing mine and says he is getting an overwhelming amount of compliments on the work. I cannot wait!

    If it's okay, I'm just going to save my 'holy shit' comment when you finish up this project.

    Very nice!

    Just curious, what all have you done to the car? Sounds like everyone else is working on it but will you be doing anything to it..?

    I bought it and then it was immediately delivered to Paul. I have only seen the car in person for a half day. Everything will pretty much be done when I get it back. Decided to farm this one out to the guys who have the most experience with all this. I was ready for a break from building project cars and wanted to spend some more time on the house and with my wife and almost 4 year old son. I did the E34/510/E39 touring/VW cabriolet/E39 M5 all back to back. I plan on doing a long term Z31 build next but wanted a DD that was the culmination of all the best parts of all the cars I have owned. My favorite 3 cars so far have been the estoril E38 740 M sport, the E39 M5 and the W211 E63 AMG. This gives me the power of the AMG, the style and size of the E38 with the interior color and engine/trans/diff from the M5. I personally think this will be the most perfect DD ever and I am more excited about it than any other car prior.

    This is so cool. I always wondered how they get in the crevices while dying without the leather rubbing the dye off of itself.

    Awesome build.

    Valve covers and plenum getting powder coated in wrinkle black. The ribs on the valve covers will be brushed. Uppers on the door panels are black now too.

    I can't answer specifics as Brian (Redshift) is doing it. He works for fibrenew.


    RK throttle plates. Didn't expect them to be anodized. Super nice!

    Final mockup of the door panels before they are fastened back together. I like the caramel grill better and will go with that one but wanted to get both options just in case.

    I ordered ECS black grills and will have the wheels refinished in dark silver/titanium. Then maybe a sub but that's probably it. Perhaps a tune too

    Trevor installed the M5 diff in the 750 subframe. It's also getting UUC front and rear sway bars.
