    Congratulations and well done!

    That is a brand new car! This is motivating me to get after my own M3.

    Hood Insulation received upholstery cleaning, then light pressure washing along with torch to rid the frays.



    Old Fuel cap



    Bead Blasted


    Fresh Zinc before tearing down the garage lab

    Rear bumper trim installed



    Sachs Clutch and Evo Lightened flywheel, ready to rock!


    Lots of steam, mag wheel cleaner and you have this! (Vapor honed the bell housing)


    Fresh Raychem and zinc. love it!


    Talked the wife into helping me in the garage on a friday night


    After finding the jack on the cherry-picker decided to shit out half-way through the lift while the motor was OVER the fender... pulled away, refilled it with fresh oil. (all was perfectly fine after)


    Success!

    Great work and thanks for keeping the photos rolling, what are the seats from and are they full electric, what is the details on the heater flap foam you have arriving?
    They are all electric, heated/cooled so will end up running them each off of their own relay. Heater flap's I'll grab the PN but the same width thin foam I'm using is also used behind the rear side window trim pieces.
