Hello,
I only used VHT Engine Metallic paint; no primer required.
I used engine de-greaser as I was already cleaning my engine bay, then some soap and water for a perfect clean + dry followed by spray painting 4 to 5 light coats until desired effect.

Like those fenders ! I've always wanted side vents. And those mirrors too, I've been looking for replacements.
Geez, you guys need to stop spending my money!

I actually randomly read your signature and saw that there were perches available. That is literally perfect for what I need. I like the stance right now, but the front could come down a hair.

Thanks for the idea! I'm still learning about the E9x. Knew much more about the E46.

Venoxy.com They make custom gauge face replacements - not just overlays - for any car.

Looks quite clean, might have to pick up a set. I believe you made a thread on how you modded your cluster as well but I can't seem to find it.

EDIT: Found it

If I can offer up a little advice as someone who loves long exposure photography... try finding backgrounds with as little light as possible. Light the car from the other direction so the shadows fall behind the car... it will make those shots pop!

Battery powered flood lights and a handheld flash can help you fill the light where needed. And rgb led lights can add lots to your shot if used tastefully.

Kudos dude, long exposure is tons of fun and it is really just about getting out there and trying it, experimenting etc. Just keep at it, it's not like the old film days where it was expensive to try new things. Look forward to see more of what you got!
