It took about a day to sand out with 1200 grit paper all the machining lines and damage from the blow up and polish.

Ordered a $10 multimeter on ebay and just waiting for it to arrive so i can test the dme and go from there, meanhwile have been watching YouTube vidies regarding battery discount and dme removal so i don't accidentally screw it up... 😂

Oh dear, not the red on the car, the gray on the wheels, which is space gray.

When I was looking for a gunmetal gray colour to paint the wheels, Space Gray came up in some forums and I liked the look of it, so my wheels are now space Gray

they came up sooo good, I might even change the black wheels on the e92 to space Gray as well...
