car is in for major bodywork and a colour change





Having M3 wings (welding up the vents) and rear quarters put on, and have an Evolve CF roof going on too, then respray in LSB

Then the interior is having Recaro Sportster heated seats, then all the interior recovered in Cinnamon leather



The leather has been sourced from Germany for a good colour match to the OEM Cinnamon

Not much to show but the modifications are well under way for the inner arch, once this sides done the other should be a quicker job as it will be just following a pattern, the finished result will look like it came from the factory like this though, so nice a flush underneath fabricated with one piece rather than a patchwork quilt of metal panels.





Wings has gone on for test fitting the new csl front bumper from turner motorsports, make sure I have the M3 fitting one and to test fitment before painting

Ive received the new windscreen cowling, the plastic bit at the bottom of the windscreen where the wipers attach, the old one was bleached by the sun and never could be brought back so i got a new one, i think the little things like that and the new headlight lenses will make a big difference overall

Part # 51718232894



Also got a new centre console



My rear shelf had seriously been discoloured



So bought some fabric spray dye



This is after 1 can!



Two cans still not perfect but close enough LOL

(the white balance is making it a bit blue but you can see the speaker recess its not far off the same)

I already had bought the clears ready to go on before i decided to go amber. As i will be wiring oem amber leds in i'm buying oem clears too (this means my deppo leds will be up for sale) then i can swap at my hearts content



I won a left amber rear LED unit brand new on ebay for 60, really happy with that, so now on the look out for a righty

I have bought some OEM chrome kidney grilles, im having my existing ones colour coded as they were before, and i have just received these as i quite like the black on LSB, then i can swap around until im happy with my choice, i can even have a go at swapping the middle section with different surrounds, lsb outer with chrome inner?

nice build. what you're doing now reminds me of what i just finished doing lol i only did the front m3 fenders though, cause i was only repainting the front clip. and I have a challenge cf roof instead. hoping to do the rear quarter panels sometime down the line.
