After I get my new wheels, then the Mtech bumper, then an exhaust.

Right now I'm deciding between Mtech I and Mtech II. They're both really nice haha.

Ahahah it's all I have for now. I only painted one today as an experiment to see if I liked the white color. I need to clean up some spots on this wheel (I accidentally masked part of the front on the very right side).

For some reason, painting the cap turns out a different color than the wheels. When I sprayed them together they were both the same white but I guess when the wheels dried they became a different shade of white while the caps stayed bright. Probably gonna run the wheels capless until I can afford to powdercoat everything.

is the cap plastic? Did you apply clear coat while drying? I would apply a 2nd / 3rd coat + clear. Most clear cans will give you a yellowish shade.

Yeah I applied 2 coats of white then 2 clears for both faces and caps. Caps are plastic. I was reading the spraypaint can and it said to do layers about 10 minutes apart, which is what I did for both paint and clear. Should I have waited for the white to dry 24 hours then do the clear?

Been a while since my last update. Unfortunately nothing major ahha.

One of my reverse bulbs went out so I replaced them with the Khoalty CREE LED reverse bulbs. They're great! Fit perfectly, and are nice and bright.






Still painting my wheels. I was working on the last one and my last can of white paint ran out . Just need one more can and they'll be ready for tires once I torque them down. But for now here's a teaser .


Should've cleaned the bottom of the lip but whatever ahha.

Still deciding if I want to put black CF BMW emblems or a BBS emblem.
Hopefully by next update I'll have tires on these lol.

Me too! I'm not sure if I want the regular black/silver BBS caps or the red/gold one if I do go the BBS way.

didn't know people were actually anxious for an update lol. unfortunately no. my parents won't let me buy my tires hahah. i have to find a buyer for these m3 wheels first. idk when i'm gonna post them up though.

i'm thinking about redoing the white and powdercoating the wheels. the paint feels really rough between the spokes because the coat isn't even all around. and if i powdercoat them, they'll be easier to clean.

i did get bbs caps though. i might update with a picture in the morning.
