Just need to wrap it Lime Rock green and your all set.

I need to convince @iamjamen to give me his Performance steering wheel.

Anyone in S.E. Michigan able to help code a battery from flooded to AGM and change the AH? I picked up a Foxwell scan tool since it reportedly could do this but I believe it was bad information.

ICarly app should do it. I don't have my INPA tools currently (loaned) and I'll be gone for the weekend otherwise I'd volunteer.

Thanks... no rush though. We've had the car almost 2 years and we've drove it a handful of times so far! Finishing up a LOT of mechanical maintenance/TLC and working on some cosmetics now. Just had the bumpers painted and now the rest of the paint looks horrible in comparison (car sat outside in NYC full time). Need to work on paint correction Sunday to help it match better and then finish cleaning up the interior as best I can (leather was disgusting caked full of a lifetime of black crud). Its slowly coming along though and my wife finally is happy.

Ha! Dude I just bought a 135i from NYC that sat outside full time, bumpers were kind of jacked too, hood is TOAST (I'm vinyl wrapping it)....the rest was cleaned up through about 8 hours of detailing it. Work it, girl.

I haven't coded a battery before, but i'm sure its not hard. I'll see what I can do if it's no rush.

Ah, the joy. My clearcoat on the hood and front fenders is so jacked up I'm not sure it can ever be corrected to match my fresh bumper but I'm going to try. I clay bar'd and ran a coarse cut over the entire car so far (about 8-10 hours worth of sweat) and it looks a lot better but still crappy to my eye. Debating taking to a pro but I'm stubborn about doing things myself. I tried to paint both bumpers myself until I realized what a PITA it is to match BSM paint code

I'm slowly learning about these cars. Will probably buy the iCarly app soon if I can't get the foxwell scanner to work... it seems to have a lot of useful other functions as well.

Yeah. My car is jet black. Honestly the only way to get old paint to match is to repaint the whole car, especially if it's a dark color...hence why I'm just vinyl wrapping the hood. Eventually it will be fully repainted, but for now I'm pretty happy with it.

DAMN Phil your car came out AMAZING!!! I can't believe the progress since I last saw this car sitting in pieces in your garage.

Huge props to you for a unique build. I can't even imagine how many hours you spent pulling this off.
