Well, finished up the coilover install last weekend but couldn't drive the car until I got some spacers up front. The drivers front tire was rubbing on the coil. 12mm spacers helped fix that and it was back on the road last night.

I've attached a couple quick pics after the install.

Overall, i'm much happier with the stance, ride quality and most importantly, getting rid of the 18 year old rotting stock parts. They were in rough shape!

Projects i'll be completing this week:

-Refinishing the metal trim around the exterior windows. Haven't been able to find anyone local that can source them or has them in stock, and can't find a company that'll ship them. Refinishing it is!

-Removing the terrible tint job on all the windows.

-Replacing the busted side markers.

-Removing the aftermarket cd player and installing an OEM tape deck.

-Picking up a set of e36 Modena front seats. I'll be removing the good leather off the seats so that I can have the drivers seat repaired.

I bought a $25 clothing steamer a few years ago for stripping window tint and it does wonders, would highly recommend you use something similar if you don't have a plan of attack yet.

Watched a youtube video last week with that trick. Exactly what I was planning on using!

Only a few weeks into e36 ownership and my dreams are crushed

My car got beat up by golf ball sized hail yesterday because I left it outside.

Looks like the majority of the body panels have dings on it, broke off both side markers, all window trim and sunroof panel.

I'd be shocked if the insurance company doesn't total it out.

That's awful news, I'm sorry to hear that. I hope insurance takes care of you.
