Hu... the photo uploaded about 400k smaller than it is on my computer -- very low sharpness now. Sorry about that, it was supposed to be a fairly high quality shot. Here's a link to a better quality copy of it: http://www.flickr.com/photos/bhcmbailey/

I took a number of photos of Kris' and Jeff's cars of which I'll post a couple once I'm done processing all the photos (~1500).
I can't believe you're autoxing w/ that new paint job! I keep getting haggled by my BF about me doing it this year. Next time he says anything, I'll just reply, "Cliff does it!" lol!!

I am being selective about sites. The Marina airport is an exceptionally clean site with no gravel and not a whole lot of sand. May's autoX is in a parking lot at Great America, and it's debris city. I won't be driving there, not my car at least.



I also have a clear bra going on the car a week from tomorrow. They'll be edge wrapping the hood, fenders, and bumper, and covering the headlights, fogs and mirrors. I am not doing the rockers as I plan to replace those at some point. Once that is on then I'll be a lot more adventurous.

I had to walk about 15-20 feet away from my car if I wanted to admire it from the front. Washing it was painful since I had to get my nose right in there and see the chips in all their dreadful glory.

Here's an unflattering photo from 5 years ago after I received a fix-it for a missing front plate. It got a lot worse...

You need clears and some tint and maybe some rims:P. Or something pink somewhere.

330i ZHP, those are two beautiful vehicles. Mafia, I appreciate the comment. I have owned it for only four months and there is so many things I'd like to do with it. I've been concentrating on just getting it clean and ensure that it runs correctly.
