Did you use the “workshop position” on the hood hinge to remove the scuttle?

These are kind of contradictory statements... Right? I'm not sure why anyone would put US spec headlights back on any E36...

Car and garage are looking very nice. I would put in a Bosche or ZKW headlight set up in over the crap plastic lights but you gotta do what you like I suppose.

Looking good, please keep posting pics, I am really enjoying the detailing.

BTW, what steam cleaner did you go with? I definitely need to steam clean a lot of my Alpine White as well.

I did not. I was able to clean it up with brushes and qtips. It took like 15 minutes maybe.

Ive been looking at different set ups. I don't think the stock lights are going to make it in, but Im not sure what I am going to do yet.

For originality, I'd go with stock plastic (crap) headlights, and that is exactly what I left in mine. But then again, I never really drive it in the dark, and its far from being my daily. So while its original and period correct, the fact that they are absolute crap still remains a fact.
