    Nice to see pics of the CATuned rear bumper! It doesn't look bad at all! I've been debating on ordering one but now it seems they are currently out of stock.

      Garagistics carries them as well I believe. Keep in mind they are not perfect, but not bad for the price and they are durable.

        Went to my local Cars and Coffee and someone took a picture of me coming in.

          The other day I installed a cup holder/wireless charger in place of the ash tray. What a great addition this piece is. Thank you again https://www.r3vlimited.com/board/member/121840-dfraid.

          I'm also in the process of cutting out some cancer that my right rear battery compartment has slowly accumulated. For the most part this is only rust that is on the car. She has been a good purchase (leap of faith when I got her) so far.
          The pictures look real rough. It is rough I have since wire wheel a lot the rot out and it looks a lot better. But I will be welding in fresh metal very soon.

            So all the rust has been cut out and replaced with new metal. Everything has been resealed and painted. I'll take some more pictures of the final product later. These are just few of was cut out. It's not 100% factory fresh, but it's solid and will not leak.

              Anything that has pitting in it will probably come back.

              Wurth makes a good weld thru prime to help seal in between the patch panels.

              3m fast and firm is the closest seam sealer off the self like the factory stuff.

              Defiantly nice to have a dry e30, I’m still working on that one!

              I was up above it, Now I'm down in it ~ Entropy - A Build thread.

                Yeah When I bought the car in Feb 2015 it had this issue that I just put on the back burner for too long. But for now it's solid and will work. Good thing about this car is that it's not pristine or a garage queen. She is rough in places, but solid (for most part) where it counts. I can get in it and drive it without worrying about the miles or dings.

                I appreciate the advice.
