The colors are finally hitting here.

Please excuse the old girl, she's dirty and has tons of gap.

This weekend I'll hunt down a tree that matches the beautiful color that is hellrot.

well im running 17" wheels with 40 series tires that have the slightest stretch so there's a good chance that it's all the tires fault

cept road signs aren't that strong needs more than just a stop sign screwed to it to protect anything. Especially a rock puncturing your pan.

be sure to build a bracing for it and space it down a distance from your pan so there is a "crumple zone" if you should hit something hard. (take it from the rallycross guy )

No fall colors here yet, but just washed and waxed. Proof that my wheels actually are silver!

Haha very nice, the brake pads have excellent bite but do create a ton of dust

You can find free road signs in any college town student ghetto at the end of the school year laying next to the trash bins with the Bob Marley posters and 1980s couches.

Man, those style 5s look great in gold and so does the rest of the car! I think changing mine from charcoal to gold will be a winter project for me.

Thanks DC and Claus!

I am running bilstein sports with eibach pro kit, but i still have about an inch of wheel gap up front. Im going to try to find sportline fronts. Just bought an e36 M tech 3 spoke wheel, too! Trying to find where to buy the upper and lower steering column bearings while Im at it, I just dont know where to get them.

my cousin actually had it for the last like 3 years. its just a "bump" sign so its not like a SUPER important sign like stop or something.

and i know its illegal to have but thats okay.... because its going to be scratched to hell in like a week.


im using the stock mounting holes for the Xbrace too so its going to be a little bit like a x brace. not expecting much though.
