    check the 325 out

    So I never posted my car before. So I figured I would.
    Right now, just lowered, BBS's (only on rear gonna get spacers
    to clear the front brakes, and also for the rear to make it even)
    and that's about it. Peace.

        Wow. Those look great man. 13's never looked so good ;) They are 13's, right? I was looking at a set of those, they look so good on 320's and 02's, I knew they'd look good on ours. Any pics of the ones on the car?

            Really? I've only seen that style of wheel in a 13". They look great, nice lip there. Keep us posted - the car looks good!

                I've got those exact same wheels in 15's in my driveway. I think the offset is like 15 or something. How did you polish them?

                    13" wheels don't fit on E30s man, didn't you see that long winded thread in track/autox?

                        thanks for the compliments!


                        The BBS's are 14x6 and et13

                        I polished the lip by first stripping off as much paint as I could with acetone. Then I started with 600 grit and worked my way up to 2000 grit (all wet sanding). Then just clean it up real good with metal polish. Then I used some paint for the center that has little pieces of glass in it, can't remember the name at the second, but it dries super hard, you can get it at home depot in a can.

                        thanks again! :D


                        edit: thejimlab is that a 914 in your avatar? I have one I'm workin on right now.

                            cool, if you can remember the name of the paint that would be great. yeah, it's a 914. it sat in a yard near my buddies house for 20 or so years, then they pushed it down a hill with a bulldozer. that's where the pic came from. it's in a junkyard now.

                              did you put a clearcoat on the lips after polishing them?

                              Trying to figure out whats wrong with my polished lips. They look really cloudy and cracked. Could this be the clearcoat?
