Default Update

Materials are all arrived and ready to go. Some minor foam repair has been done, and now the fun starts. Should be done by the end of March...

Also pulled the calipers. Still deciding what color to paint them. I wanted to do yellow, but the more I think about it the more I think it might be a bit much for stock brakes, maybe when I get big breaks. Someone also mentioned color matched blue, not really my style... Probably going to just do silver or black.

Going to paint the M badge with its right colors as well just for a little extra juice...

Default Huge Update!

Its been awhile, but the interior is done and has been on the road home for a couple days now. Should have it by the weekend! NWCrafted did an amazing job on them and I would recommend them to anyone looking for interior work.

For anyone wondering...

Leather Dove Grey leather on the seat bolsters is European Nappa Leather

The "suede" like material on the seat centers, dash, and soon the doors is Alcantara, a super durable suede that is fire and water proof (used in lots of luxury and supercar interiors) I wanted to make sure no corners were cut in the quality of materials or workmanship, which was something I was disappointed about in my last interior build.

Aside from that, I ordered a lot of things that I have been putting off for awhile now. This includes...

20mm H&R DRA spacers for the front and back (might have to add a 3mm)

BFI Heavy Weight Shift Knob with matching Dove Grey Alcantara
Screen Shot 2018-04-10 at 12.28.25 PM by Kevin Larson, on Flickr

PedalHaus pedal set and heel plate with a custom engraving on the dead pedal (this is just a image similar to what mine will look like, mine wont have engraving on the heel plate, and it will say m3 on the dead pedal in blue. Thought that doing the engraving on both plus having it on the cloth floor mats was a bit much...)

image1 (8) by Kevin Larson, on Flickr

On my list now is to...

Get interior in and set

Get a new window for the top

Paint brakes

Then I should be good for a least a while to drive it, but it will be no where near done...

Wow. That's some serious work right there. Looks great.
Not quite my thing, but it seems to be very quality job.

Don't like the Alcantara or what? Just curious, and thanks, I wanted to do something different then the normal tan and blue.

I dunno, the suede/alcantara dash looks a little yobbish imo.

WOW, your shop did a stellar job wrapping that dash. Very impressed, it's not easy by any stretch of the imagination.
