Franklyn, what are you telling us? That you had to raise the car off of scrape mode? I don't see how you were driving it that low all this time anyway.

Wheel/tire gap is not a sin.

If you don't know your plans, we have no hope of guessing them, either.

I don't even like Wendy's any more.

Chad, you need to change your ID to MercChad since you haven't owned an E36 in like forever. You are still a Phantom, though.

Mein Auto: who knows?
1995 BMW M3 - 1995 BMW M3 VIN
Alpine White exterior, Black interior.
Car has 126,300 miles I am selling my very clean M3. I have owned the car for 2 years.
Always garage kept, under a cover with battery tender hooked up.
In the past 2 years I have replaced the water pump with an all steel unit, and aluminum thermostat housing.
Also replaced the oxygen sensor and cat back with an stock BMW unit.
The interior is near perfect. No tears or stains, everything works, cruise, A/C blows cold, heated seats work. Even has factory tape deck.
I have been using this car for Auto-x but has never been tracked.
I have instsalled stainless steel brake lines. Delrin offset control arm bushings.
Turner Motorsport diff bushings.
Redline fluid in the tranny and Royal Purple in the Diff.
Brake rotors are new, Hawk pads for the street and Mintex extreme for Auto-X.
Also has a UUC Clutch and Pressure plate.
I also had Eksten's do an Auto-x Alignment. Has Ground Control coilovers. Koni yellows, 550 rear and 450 front spring rates.
I have the stock Double spoke wheels but I have 17x9 TR Motorsport MT1R wheels, with 245x40x17 Dunlop Star Specs.
I have all the stock suspension, and a fitted car cover.
I will sell the car without the suspension and wheels for $9,500. As it sits $10,500.
It is damn near perfect, I promise you will not be disappointed!
Paul, (If you want the number message me im not going to post it here just in case), Day or Night.




where the FCUK is phillip?

I think ill just give him my stuff, wet sand it, and let him spray the car
Well I can tell you a few issues right there ^^

Why did you wetsand the final base?

Why did you wetsand after a coat of clear???


The paint stages need to be semi wet and together to bond properly.

Base, wait, base, wait, base, wait, clear, wait, clear, wait, clear, wait, done.


Wait=10ish minutes (look on paint can)

I haven't seen this video of Mike Burroughs' E36 before. Am I late to the party? I don't like stance cars, but there are some nice sounds.
