Damn that car looks sick. Get rid of that wood trim and you are set.

Once you slam it, get a bike rack for the roof. That would complete it.

At first I was gonna say you need help for your modding addiction for modding a wagon but after going through the first couple pages of this thread I must say that wagon is looking good.

moisture in the air came on about an hour ago and that and paint dont mix well - the trim around the windows on the drivers side is screwed up now - I will have to sand out the fisheyes and start over.

oh well, at least the trim inside turned out well

on the dash piece pics that white line is a DAMN cat hair - i swear that sh1t shows up everywhere...

And even though the pads have enough material on them to pass a MD inspection...its not enough for BMW wear sensors. So Bubba ordered some Akebono (supposed to be a lot less dust but have better stopping power than the Axxis pads)

I think I might have to try wrapping the pillars next....and maybe go all out and do the headliner...of course I will need a good set of drugs first - since that is a ton of time involved in removing all that stuff

I was able to clean all the crappy paint off the window trim - so at least no harm..just some really dirty (from paint) fingers

Nice job wrapping the trim, all black trim is not my taste, but looks clean and well done. How thick was the fabric? Was it hard to get the edges smoothed out and clean?

Keep it up and keep posting pics...
