Not sure, I was at home and he turned up quite late at night. last year it was in show&shine bit but only 1 e38 crew member was interested ~ Stu - he owns a green T reg g40 in bits!

Not really an interesting update(not sure many people read this), had a great weekend at Edition 38, finally got around to removing my tints.

picture from Edition 38 that my friend took;


Picked a set of front headlight protectors up, in original box/instructions - tried them out, excuse phone picture.


Got a couple of plans for over winter, going to be replacing my suspension and making a start on another interior, generally maintain it.

Thanks man, really appreciate it :)

well, was thinking of red, but maybe just stick with the original satin silver to match the throttle body/charger etc  ???

Yeah I got some decent Aluminium alloy spray of ebay. Mine was polished before I sprayed it so I just roughed it up pre paint. Couple of coats and its spot on -ish

So small update, been gathering piles of new bits and slowly sorting it out with the help of my brother, got round to spraying up the rocker cover and fitting that, massive improvement and the colour came out nice.. most recent bay photo.


cleaned up all the arches and waxoiled them.



going be sweet once it's got all new parts on it, painted up some bits, arb, brake calipers, struts etc just to freshen them up, will keep updates coming of progress.  :)

The bay looks very nice! Few bits on the car out of my taste, but it's not mine!
Keep up the good work

cheers guys,

Little update, fitted my new wheel bearings and hubs.. also sanded and painted up my struts so they look half decent with just the calipers left to go on (waiting for new bolts)
Got the front suspension on with the new shocks, springs, top mounts - thanks to Pete again for helping me with parts.

Not a very clear photo but you get the idea.


Also fitted the ARB blocks I got from PPP.

Hopefully be making a start on the rears next weekend if all goes well.

I feel bad for supplying ARB blocks in white, not black or red  ;D

Looks sweet- very clean  :)
