Nope. We used a shoebox with a tiny hole in it.


(Seriously though, we should stop cluttering Ambers thread and take this to OT).

Okie dokie. Yes, leave this thread for the beauty that is my car. Even if I did help instigate the OTness.

Newest addition to the project. Not completed yet, still needs clear coat and to be put back on the car, obviously. But I said I would, so here we are. Keep in mind, it will make more sense when reinstalled.

That is pretty incredible. Is the ultimate goal to have the whole car covered eventually?

I don't want to speak for Amber, but last I heard the coverage was going to be about 90% restricted to the horizontal surfaces, with some thread-like linkage between on the other-than-horizontal parts (A and C pillars). Subject to change at the whims of the artist, of course.

My thanks! No, as Ken said the only thing left now is the trunk, side mirrors, and some more interior pieces (one of which I'm working on now, actually).

Hiiiiiiii!

Ok guys, form up the posse just in case. I'm off to meet up with my ex to drop my sunroof off for clear coat. I hope you all will come to my rescue with all your e36 official firearms if he absconds with my sunroof.

Stand down posse, all is well! It was super weird but I think my sunroof is safe.

You guys are the best btw! Sorry it took so long, moms on my laptop watching TV and I didn't realize how long I'd been gone.

Hold yer horses. Amber is fine. She's at home. Her mom is using her laptop so she can't get on the fest just now.
