not your usual platform that you see here on vipstylecars. just wanted to show you guys what's going on and what's coming up. bodywork being done by goldcrest over in san diego, california.
first off, some recent photos of the car:
and some shots of the bodywork. it's about 2 days in now. front fenders first, rear fenders next:
front and rear fenders are being radiused and reflared with OEM m3 fenders (wider than non-m3 vehicles). fenders are being radiused up about 3/4 of an inch and are coming out about an inch (threw on some 10mm spacers on the front wheels to test things out).
after the bodywork, i will be scrapping the carbon fiber sideskirts for my oem skirts and some m3 skirts. going to section off the m3 skirts and plastic-weld/mold them to my oem skirts so i can get the lines to flow with the rear bumper. it's just unfortunate that every other skirt for the e46 is fugly, so i'm going to have to make my own. also going to pick up some wider lips for the classics (currently 10" rear, upgrading to a 12" rear).
question for the air suspension gurus:
my front setup is bilstein and UAS single non-convoluted bags. now i have much more room to breathe, but i'm pretty maxed out at the moment. bilstein struts were rewelded and revalved to lower the drop. single non-convoluted bag is about 4" tall deflated from my understanding. i'm trying to drop the car even more without having to purchase a coilover kit. do i have any options with smaller bags out there? or is the coilover/bag combo the way to go? i noticed UAS' inventory changes a lot and i don't even see the bags i'm currently running in their stock anymore.
