That jb weld looks really nice actually, I'm gonna use that.

As for color, I think I'm gonna try gold first, with the stock silver lips. If I dont like it, paint stripper + repaint

Rear wheels are currently being stripped of their original paint


*edit: holy sh*t this is a PITA getting in between the spokes to remove the paint is a damn slow process. The closest place that can sandblast them for me wants $85, and the turn around time is 3-4 days. F that..

Yeah. Spacers range from 75-400 depending where you go.

I'll post pics of my weaves when I get home, they're gonna look terrible on delphin.. I like gold rims, just not on my car

Might be picking up a set of hyper silver xxr 501s, 16x8 et15 with 2 new tires, no scratches/bends/rash for $400.




Another edit, here are pics of the gold rim, and my new pet mouse that my snake wouldn't eat. I've been playing with the little guy for the past 3 hours. He just keeps running around my desk and nibbling on my fingers.

You're a funny guy. Rolling on the throttle at 80 in 4th, an n/a m20 doesn't pull like that. Wasn't showing the video to impress "the great one" was showing that we are tuning the Motronic, foo. :P We are still conservative on the timing, fuel is also in a safe zone until we have time to put it on the rollers. 1st gear doesn't even build boost, the turbo is a bit on the large side, but that's ok, there's room to grow on this one.

While finding some info for a friend about a mono wiper and saw something interesting. Why were you guys both banned from e30tech and r3v?

Yeah. Came across a thread where anstead told someone that his buddy sells the mono kits, but is banned or arguing and that they could get a hold of steve here, but anstead was banned as well.

i was first banned from r3v for sharing my opinion on FWD hondas with wings.

the second time i was banned because i stated the fact that blunt didnt beat anyone on price, he sells stuff for the exact penny amount as tischer. this fact/what i said was based on 3 seperate orders i was going to place through blunt with over 8 items each order where none of his prices beat tischer .. so i went with tischer. George Graves who ive bought many items from and have always promoted his products actually went right to the moderators and reported me for biegn a previously banned member. needless to say i dont buy from that shady old man and i refuse to buy from blunt either.

i simply view that forum as a ghost now, only found in PM's.

i was banned from e30tech because i dont care for vw builds on the bmw e30 specific forum. argument lead to some member saying he did things of a sexual nature to my dead grandmother .. which ended up in a permanent ban for me .. and absolutely nothing happened to the other member. a moderator actually came on and said what he said was deserved considering i said vw jettas were girl cars(literally thats what i said, vw jettas were girls cars). ive never rejoined and never will. raw disrespect like that (even on the internet) is uncalled for and a real low life move. a forum that supports that is a forum i will not be a part of.

all of the actual arguments i got into on both forums never got me permanently banned. people often try to use my previous bans as negative down talk towards me. they dont really say anything negative about me, all of my bans were just proof of how back stabbing, shady and disrespectful the e30 community is.
