Surely there is some better use of your time than to force me to consider selling my own E36 because the market has fallen so far. For the love of god-- can I send you some paint and a canvas instead? That car is hideous. I just don't get it at all. Rust? Wheels that don't fit? (I don't care that they are custom double-lip whatever-- they are hideous). Jeezus. I'm all for individuality and personalization-- but has to be a line drawn somewhere.

Seriously though-- no offense intended, this is just my opinion, and I respect yours-- and your right to ruin ( smile ) your car if you like.

Everyone's got their own style, their own taste. Sure, rust and double lips aren't for everyone, but in my opinion, car enthusiasts should be able to recognize and appreciate the amount of work and attention to detail that went into something like this.

Maybe you would spend just as much time prepping the car for a flawless paint job or shoving a turbo setup in the car, so why unnecessarily bash on him so much? I strongly disagree that there is a line to creativity, and I'm glad the whole world doesn't think like you, to be honest. If there was, where would "movements" like stance or raise trucks. Where would tech startup companies spring from if no one pushed the envelope?

If someone told you 20, 30 years ago, lets slam the hell outta my car and daily it. Lets make the rear tire sit perfectly flush with the fender and lets stretch the tire so much, it usually breaks the bead. Would you have the same response as you did to this car? Maybe.. Most likely. Does it help anyone? No. Are you going to suddenly change his mind to take the car back to absolute stock? Not a chance in hell. It's his style, his preference. If you don't have any constructive criticism, just don't post and gawk silently from behind your computer.

I think this is key.

I don't respect many different things people do to their cars when they're both tasteless and copy-cat. I get tired of the argument that every mod deserves respect. If I don't like stretch and poke, I don't have to respect it because it's been done a million times and you're just copying it with off the shelf parts.

But something like this guy, obviously a ton of work went into it, a lot of creativity and different thoughts, even the custom wheels are very unique. While I wouldn't want something like this for my car, the creativity and work that went into it gets mad props from me and it definitely earns respect.

I think I came across wrong-- that was my fault for not wording more carefully. I was mainly "ribbing" the guy like a friend would. Taste might not be mine, but I certainly respect the effort, vision, and time. I'd give any of my friends a hard time on something, and they would me. I was just applying the same kind of good-natured bashing online-- and it did not come across right.

My apologies-- I don't want anyone to think I seriously meant there is a "line" or that mod censorship should be real--

In all sincerity-- my bashing was more of a compliment than anything-- even though it's not my taste. Hope that makes sense.

Excellent, the groupthink is setting in already.

Baller. How long do you expect that look to last? If it's real rust, will the body panels start to turn to dust?

Ever heard the expression "rust never sleeps"? It never stops, either, no matter how much clear (or other) coatings you put on top of it. That rust is continuing to eat away at the body panels.

^This^

Rust is the iron in the steel reacting with oxygen to create iron oxide. Once the process starts the surface becomes semi-porous and oxygen is entrapped there. Covering it with clear coat will deprive the process of new oxygen but it won't do anything about the entrapped oxygen so the rusting will continue until all oxygen is consumed. That may or may not be before the body panels are perforated.
There are conversion coatings that use tannic acid to convert the iron oxide to iron tannate but they're only effective on very light surface rust because they can't penetrate well to reach the entrapped oxygen areas and stop the oxidation process. In addition the conversion of the iron oxide changes it's color from brownish orange rust color to black, which defeats the whole purpose of the look.
