I do not understand why you even brought that up. We all know what interior the 95 Lightweight has. The door panels are vinyl, not leather. That was it.

I think you have ruined this car, it is a shame, I will gladly take if off your hands and dispose of it....just let me know where I can pick it up...we can help you find a better car, let’s hurry and do this so you can start another project

It's been awhile since I've updated this thread but here is a quick run down of some progress.

Since the last update, I have replaced both Drip Rail Moldings, which was a big improvement. My old moldings were both bubbled and poorly painted. Each side took about 20 minutes to replace. I messed up the driver's side initially and had to remove the molding, which did cause a slight bend. Using a heat gun, I was able to mold it back. If you are replacing, be patient and take your time! (sorry, I do not have any pictures of them installed)

I finally got around to installing the OEM BMW Motorsport belts that have been sitting in my garage for over a year. Needless to say, I'm loving the look.

Also, had the car paint corrected and ceramic coated. The 24 year old paint looks absolutely incredible! Here are a couple shots

I've also replaced a lot of little warn out pieces with new OEM parts (no pics of that)

And lastly, had a photo snapped this weekend at Cars and Coffee with a Daytona Violet F80 and a Purple Silk F80. It was cool to see how identical in color the Daytona Violet's were with a 22 year difference.

Absolutely love the way this car looks. Mine started out like yours with no spoiler and would love to make my Techno look identical. Already got the square LTW wheels going on.

Please post more pictures! The rolling ones look awesome. I need to figure out how to get all the part numbers. I know it wouldn't be too difficult to look up, but you wouldn't happen to have them handy would you?
