    Some fucking cocksucker stole one of my E36 M3 midsections with cats. I'm pissed. There goes $150...

      Unfortunately you can't leave that shit unlocked anymore.

      I had someone steal a car battery from me about a year ago. Pissed me off, especially when I needed it.

        This reminds me I need to put the downpipes/cats from the 318is in the garage, someone would steal those for sure.

        Had a bike stolen right from my porch...

        Edit:

        By the way, anyone know of a good concoction to put an engine block in to get it back to shiny aluminum color? Turning my M42 Block into a table and dont want to have it sand/bead/media blasted.

          Well it is an iron block so it won't be shiny..... but you could powerwash it thoroughly and paint it metallic gold or whatever

            Ahh it is Iron then? That explains why its rusty inside, duh silly me.

            Ill Probably Power wash it and then paint the outside aluminum color. It feels super light so I assumed Aluminum alloy.

            Going to leave the Crank and pistons in, and put the oil filter back on as a remote/drink holder. My little flatscreen should look nice on it.

                  I made my own cam locking tools out of just angle steel.

                  I measured my friends aluminum blocks so I can machine my own legit looking ones.

                          I just called them. They ballparked it at $200-250 per wheel. I sent out some other requests for quotes, and am going to drive down to FWO tomorrow so they can see them in person. I'm going to see if I can knock the price down by breaking the wheels down before hand.
