    Fixed my 345i... pics

    Please read before you go any further:

    I know what I did was wrong. I since took not only a defensive driving course, but am also taking performance driving lessons at the glen. I have since not driven even after 1 beer and will never do it again. I know I may have lost some of your respect, as a matter of fact, I know I definitely lost it and I can tell. There's obviously nothing I can do about that. I can't prove that i've learned my lesson (i've obviously learned the hard way), but just so you know that I took it like a man on this forum. The forum is important to me and i value the comments even though some of them are pretty harsh. I fixed my car and am back on the road, much wiser and more careful.

    It's fixed, it's not perfect and at first sight you can see it. I still need to do the stripes and will do that when I have time. Thanks to JGood for the Q-panel. I really appreciate it

    Now you can look at the pics. in chronological order...






    Thanks to JGood, I have my new Q-panel!

    WOW! Looks damn good. Don't worry about losing respect, at least you manned up and are fixing things (you and the car). So congrats and get those stripes on there!

        Congrats! Looks good.
        Quick question, do you have any pictures of the finished stitch welds before putting the filler on?

                          Excellent work. Being able to do perfect paint match with the roller paint job must be nice.

                            Definitely not perfect [maybe I'm the only one that can tell] but it looks worlds better!

                            Glad you got her fixed up.

                              Thanks alot guys.

                              Matt, I know. It's far from perfect. It's not bad for an amature and to the untrained eye it's barely noticeable.

                              My next project is to probably drop the drivetrain/suspension into a new shell. Make it a sleeper.
