A buddy made me some black stickers and then the lettering to go on top, now I just need to clear coat it.

Very nice touch.

For my BMW, I ordered $160 worth of trim & gaskets...

Rear vent window seals and sills, plus a trunk gasket and the front cowl. Oh, and those "SRS Airbag" tabs which go on the door panels.

Even though E36s are pretty much the least expensive BMWs you can buy right now, if you find one that needs very little if no work, they often sell for more than blue book value. Hopefully the same will be true of yours once it's sorted. By the way, got any more photos of it?

That's what I'm hoping for. I think the only real thing standing in the way on price is the guy hit something in the front and the panel alignment and paint match isn't too good. Not awful, but I'm anal so it bothers me.

Edit, fancy seeing you in the poli sci cesspool earlier.

You might be able to get the panels to align correctly (or at least better than presently the case) on your own. A lot of people are just lazy when putting a car back together and don't take the time to get everything perfect.

It's not eBay's fault, it's the LEDs fault. The car measures the resistance on each lighting circuit, LEDs have lower resistance, so the system thinks a bulb is out. Anytime you upgrade to LED's, you need another resistor on the circuit to keep it from doing that.

Yeah if my calculations are correct, my water pump or water pump gasket or something water pump related is leaking. A slow but steady drip.

The D70 is a good starter camera. I like that it has a built in AF switch so you can use basically any AF lens out there. My D60 doesnt so I'm limited to AF-S lenses which are a little bit (to a lot more) money.

If you don't mind that the D70 is a little older (2004) and is discontinued then I'd say go for it.

If it means anything I bought a D3200 and it's the ****.

I'm looking into microphones for the camera, anyone got anything to say about the cheapo ~$20 ones. I'm not paying $150 for a microphone
