    Car returned home for a short week as it would soon be off to paint and interior. These are the few images I have of the car before she left again for the plastic surgery work.

    Car is off to paint on February 25th 2013 and I hope it will not take as long as it did to install the CSL parts. After paint, I can break in the car for the 500 miles needed to set the DIFF gear. After all the break ins and fluid changes, I will work on the videos and a nice photo shoot of the car.

    While the car was away again I decided to do a complete breakdown on the current setup of the car in regards to parts. This also includes all those little parts that never seem to be posted when these projects are done. I hope that this will help people in the future if they decided to go down this path or just trying to find that missing part. The parts list below is just a parts listing but I have included a price break down in a Google Doc.

    **Please note: these are prices as listed on the website as of 2/2013 – not what I paid for them** I have been building this car going on 11 years now.

    Paint took a week to be completed and I then dropped the car of Friday March 1st to have the interior done. So hope to have the car back this week with everything done less a bath. Paint and Interior took about a week to complete. When I got the car back from paint and had a few minor issues around the grill that need to be fixed. I will be taking care of those after interior.

    I got the car back from the paint touch ups a week later along with seeing the new interior. Both the interior and paint teams did an excellent job on the work I requests and the prices were fair. As they say you get what you pay for and the work was A+ Thanks to Sierra Auto Body and Romans in Auburn CA.

    I spent Saturday morning on April 20th installing the passenger seat sensor. The Install was easier than I made it to be as I didn’t realize the seat sensor I needed was on the bottom of the old stock seats. So had to go over to storage and get the part and plug it in. Next step is to go to the local BMW shop to clear the passenger airbag code.

    I had the following Saturday free and went to the future father in laws shop to adjust the front bumper. Still trying to get it just right but we did close the gap a little more than it was. Will be working on it this weekend again to hopefully get it all just right. Still working on it at the moment.
