    All of the small parts are painted, baked and out of the booth. I'm going to pick these up in a few days but it looks like the colorsanding process on the chassis and body panels is going to spill into next week.

      Stopped by Imperial Collision yesterday to pickup a few small parts that were done, and check on the car. The entire chassis has been wet sanded to knock down the minimal orange peel for a glass like finish and should be buffed early next week.

          Nice progress.

          Jordan,

          I noticed you are using centered front control arm bushings for this build and I recall you last e30 project had offset M3 units. What’s is the reason behind it, if you don’t mind me asking

            Awesome. Quick question - sorry if I missed this somewhere, but Were you able to buy a brand new bumper reinforcement (under bumper / not the bumper cover)?

                Different mentality and goal for two very different vehicle builds. The Imola car was a restomod, this is more a concours restoration with some minor (mainly euro spec) deviations.

                I reused both, nothing wrong with them and they cleaned up just fine.

                  Got her completely buffed following wet sanding and demasked, out in the sun for some quick pictures yesterday before it started raining. It's suppose to rain all week so I can't go pick it up until the weather clears out.




                  Setup in the showroom next to Shareif's equally immaculate M3 (the one I build the S14 for) awaiting my pickup.

                      Man, this shop looks super legit and take pride in their work. No wonder why you chose to have them work on the car.

                        Same thing here with the weather, I think the first clear day in the forecast is next Wednesday.

                        Saturday is Cars & Coffee, and the official 'debut' of my car, hoping the rain holds off in the morning at least.

                        Car looks amazing, so does that shop, I'm totes

                          Absolutely, Imperiale Collision is top notch, best of the best.

                          Some more pictures from the showroom this morning with the doors hung on it. I WANT IT SO BAD.

                            I volunteer to hold an umbrella over it on the way home.
