        But it does look much more red (or less orange) against the orange motorcycle LOL

              and since i am using the car....the air conditioning had to be fixed/updated. that is this months project. what a nasty job..condenser, orings, compressor rebuild, expansion valve, hose flushing, etc. yuck. and while i was in there....so much cleaning!

                Having spent today power washing then hand cleaning my engine bay, I have to say I'm envious of your car. That thing is clean in the under-bits.

                  when parts come off, stuff gets cleaned. i go through a lot of WD40 and rags. best cleaner of grime there is! and even at only 40k miles, there was a lot of grime in there.

                    since the nose was apart anyway....opportunity for complete refresh of the bumper. completely disassembled. new henna cover, tow covers, chin spoiler, black tape, etc. all lights removed, taken apart and cleaned, lenses polished, electrical connectors cleaned. not sure if i should hang this on wall for display or put it back on the car..



                    and interesting morning picture with sun coming in through shop windows onto inside of hood and down to nose.

                      trying a different way to attach the required lic plate on bumper. don't like the bmw bracket thing. took two of the plastic nutserts, shaved one side flat to fit, wrapped them in cloth elec tape and stuck them in the holes meant for the back of the plate screws. looks like it will work great. no more bracket. no holes in the black tape. easy to remove if needed.

                      the nutserts upside down showing tape.

                            thanks! yes, keep several soft cotton towels around just for protecting bodywork.
