And if you let it chill for too long, it would just dry up . Just wash it down.... then start over. Wait for 10-15 mins and use the back of a plastic knife (I used a plastic fork ) or like some flash cards (or anything with flat surface) to scrape the **** off.

Hmmm, whered u get it from? You need the quality goods. I used the one from a local parts store, and that crap sucked. Then went to a paint shop and bought some aircraft stripper from there, and damn that sh!t was strong. Quality sh!t makes a big difference. Ipaid 10 dollah for a damn can, but it did the job

So I'm 27 now (b-day of 2/20/1983)!

Anyways, I got a haircut (from 7" of hair to 1/25") and an industrial piercing to start of my birthday, and then the weather turned bad... again... so I did not get to do my O2 sensors and suspension like I had been planning on.

My fiancee was kind enough to order me some of those DJ Auto headlights with 6000K and CCfL angel eyes. I'm sure I'll get them... eventually.

Yay!! Thanks for sending me the pic btw, it's for a super secret pewpew project.

Not really plain... More like simple elegance.

I let mine sit for 10-15 minutes, then used a pressure washer. This was for my valve cover though. That sh!t's like magic!

Dude....Sama, your sig is trippin' me out right now. It makes your car look silver instead of white.

ANYWAY - GOOD NEWS for those of you I ran out of time to text last night before my phone died. Sold the E34 as-is for $1800!!!!!! Basically that means I'm at:

$800 - Sold T-Stars
+$1800 - Sold E34
+$5300 - Insurance payout
=$7900 - Total monies to me!!!

Plus I still have a good condition E36 M3 wheel, black E34 M-Tech sideskirts with hardware, clear corners, and some other crap to sell. Woooooooot!!!


All this for a car I paid $2000 for.

Meh, I may pick one up, but I'm looking at some other stuff. The Hellrot is way more than I want to spend, but it looks clean.

I can't afford to devote all that money to a car purchase right now, sorry.

Each of my rear wheel bearings cost me $330 to replace. I recommend having a shop do it because they're a pita.


However. They need to be done. Gl.

Chad, great prices on some M3's here in La. Just go on craigs. If I didn't have the 325i I have now, I'd spend the mone on a couple I've seen here for sale. I think I even saw one for around 3900.00
