    First day of summer, had to put the hartop on and use the AC so I could drive it to work. My 9th summer with this car, still a thrill every time I drive it.

    I thought I'd need to notch the battery cover like someone else did.

    But, with the trunk carpet on, the cover is snugged up pretty close to the side.

    ^^ Thanks!
    Trunk is tidy

    Interesting thing, the m-tech vert's use a different jack. And I still need to flip my trunk shocks over.

    In my pre-conversion research, I'd never seen anyone recommend cutting the bracket support out of the donor parts car. But, yes, that would be an ideal solution, thanks for mentioning it. Re-using the vert's metal tray works pretty well too. I used some rust-resistant paint on it. I didn't use the vent hose system since I'm using an AMG battery, but that's another good tip.

    I think I'm one of the only people on here raising their car. After putting the battery, tool kit, jack, etc., and spare tire in the trunk, and the hardtop on, the rear was looking a little droopy, so I added 15mm upper and 10mm lower spring pads. Now, I'm ready to use my roof racks

    Thanks. I don't have an extra, sorry. You just need to go to an event where BMW Classic has a booth and you can buy one there. For example, they were at Octoberfest in Monterey last year. The license plates they sold there said 100 Years on the top and BMW Classic on the bottom. I didn't buy one because I like this simpler version better. I'm not sure where they'll be next, but they're usually at the big events.
