Inspection check completed succesfully without any faults!
Now car in winter storage and stripped for some new fresh paint.
Front bumper, side skirts and wheels are now in the paintshop. Hopefully saturday is the assembly day.
More pictures when fresh painted parts are back in the car.

Yep, car should always have full toolkit!

Maybe some little mices because we dont currently have cats there.
That is my winter storage garage only. Now my E36 is there and E46 is in the different garage.

Yesterday i took some better pictures. I am pretty happy with color match. Front bumper is so much better than before. Shine is awesome.

Thank you

Lot of more pictures will come next spring when driving season starts.
I have been planning also to refurbish brake calibers, maybe gold paint or silver will be cool?

Update:

Wheels now painted and ready for tyre installation, but there is no hurry because we have full winter here and only 5 hours of daylight..
I also applied Collinite 915 carnauba paste wax for wheels. Now the new paintwork is protected.
