    Got the skirts wrapped as well as the fuel door and the front and rear trim panels that sit under the lights. The quater panel/roof pillar is going to have to wait but the car looks pretty good. I will have a ton of fresh pictures coming as there are a bunch of local shows this week that I should be at

    I like where the car is going. For some reason JDM-esque E36s work for me.

    I gotta ask though - why didn't you just wrap the rear quarters before the overs went on?

    LOL, I didnt have the wrap when I got the overs. The issue is no getting under the overs, its that from about the taillights to where the A-pillar meets the hood we have to use one piece of wrap, with it being that big its a challenge to get on and I may have shorted myself when I ordered wrap haha. It will get done soon but sadly not in time for the big local show I was aiming for. And yes JDM-esque e3's are usually amazing when they are done right.

    Look up knifeless tape. It gives you a perfect edge that is nearly impossible to see unless you're right up on it.

    I had looked into it, I need to figure out how much wrap I could save for the cost of the knifeless tape, great idea though

    Grabbed a quick shot of the car once the skirts and everything was wrapped

    Swapped out my tall bubble shift knob for something a little more low profile

    Swapped out the rear brake pads for some new ones as I was having issues with the back of the car getting covered in terrible black dust almost instantly after I washed and dried it. We will see if the new pads fix that issue or not.
    Edit, grabbed some more pictures on my lunch break today, the smoke made for a cool backdrop

    You'd be surprised how many people don't understand these things. I have people ask me if my wheels are on backwards, if my tires are the wrong size, etc. My favorite so far was an older gent who was convinced my wheel had fallen off and was just stuck inside my fender. He had never seen a coilover, but understood bags. I had to explain to him that it was low on purpose, and that my -6 was so my tire didn't hit my fender haha. Interesting conversation, that was.

    Yeah, there were plenty of laughs, between my car and my friends 2017 Golf GTi on air. He has the bags setup on Bluetooth so if anyone got too close to his car he would hit the bags and scare the crap out of them, it was pretty funny

    For sure man, I love it. Got all the bushings for the rear subframe and trailing arms ordered as well as reinforcement plates to weld to the body so that should be fun
