Well, as I expected, the rear chrome surrounds are a bit much. I used a bit of vinyl to see how I could make it look a bit better. I think I'll try some plastidip as it will be extremely difficult to form the vinyl properly in the spots I want it to lay. If that fails I'll remove them completely. I also checked to see what it would be like to change the door handles a bit. Will need to find a way to make perfect cutouts to apply to them. I think I'll see if I can lessen the intensity of the fog light brows as well.

I fixed that mess of a rear end chrome!!!!!! Once it completely cures I'll do some touch up since I peeled a bit too much off in spots.

On a side note, I've also been working on the bummer. I've swapped out the front corner lights for black and clear ones to match the rest of the headlight, done some leather cleaning/restoring, and renewing the look of the old dull plastic. I still have to remove dings, retint the windows, swap the m3 sale bumper in, replace the rear lower air diffuser with the m3 style, better looking tail lights, and repaint it. It's a fun project. I got it inspected today and they were amazed at the condition. There was nothing wrong with the car!!!!!!!!

Did a little work on my project car!!!! Replaced the valve cover gasket, spark plugs, fixed a vacuum leak, and cleaned the throttle body and icv. I've also taken a few steps in my cosmetic mods. New corner lights up front. New badges all around, led interior lighting, did some restoring work to the faded plastics (needs a few more treatments), chrome rings around the gauges, new shift knob. And much more to come.

Also worked on the E36 a bit. New radio and speakers. Also re-dyed my rear panel from faded purple, back to black. Taillights are arriving later today and I may dye my headliner black as well.
