Probably not. I got back to back road trips so I'll be strapped on cash for a bit. Plus my car is still on jackstands lol.

Those look nice. I don't think I would pull that off if I tried to plasti-dip mine.

Thanks!! I orginally did it for the winter and they kind of grew on me in black, but now I think im ready for them to be silver again. Try it, if you dont like it you're only out of about an hour of your time and 6 bucks.

Yea, about an hour, if that. After covering the brakes I sprayed a wheel and as that wheel was drying i was spraying the next one, and so on and so forth.

Yeah its very easy to Plasti-Dip wheels. Lots of haters on the forum about them, but honestly it is the cheapest way to see if you want to powdercoat without having to commit.

Anyways, got my car moving again. I just need the alignment and I'm done. Thank god. I was really getting fed up on this diy. I really hope I never have to swap a steering rack again. It wasn't hard, just more of a learning experience I really don't have time for right now.

You guys will lol at this... So I start the car, and try to bleed the system and power steering fluid leaked EVERYWHERE. After some DIY reading I missed the washers that are needed on the banjo bolts...

Nice looking car! ^^

So I got my car running last night...finally! I'm pretty much at my wits end, if I get another major component failure again I'm done. I may sell the car now that it is 100% functional, just so I don't have to deal with it.

M3 mirrors--painted automotivetouchup.com

Got these mirrors for my 344ic, got the paint thru automotivetouchup.com I was skeptical at first but they had vids so I figured the worst thing that could happen is that i had to take them someplace professional-- not the case at all.

Sand and filled in all the scratches, primed with 4 coats of primer then wet sanded with 1000 wet. Waited a day then base coated with 3 coats - waited a half hour then sprayed 3 coats of clear--I was amazed at the results-- see pics

Will post finished pics after wet sanding and buffing.

Took my time, followed directions and this is the result. I wont be afraid to paint small items ever again.

Niiiiiiiice! Looks great!

Well guys I got bad news. I'm looking at another car tonight. It isn't a BMW either. Go ahead and bust my balls, because it is a Civic Si. 2006 with the 6-speed. I'm going to be studying for my CPA and I just need something a lot more dependable. I can't afford to have my car down a week at a time anymore. I'm also going through some job changes so that is another thing too. Won't be able to car pool so I just cannot afford that uncertainty.

I know how you feel-- they can be very frustrating--seems like theres always something going on--But I have a feeling you'll be back eventually
