Engine is in the car!
New motor mounts (e28goodies) don't fit. Motor is inches further forward than with the original mounts I used when we first fit motor in car. Working on fixing now. I sold the old mounts and we need a quick turn so we're going to modify the e28goodies mounts.
All exterior trim is now on. Sex.
The M5 spoiler got warped at some point. We're noodling on how to fix this. Suggestions welcome.
Headliner is coming together. He did the moonroof panel so I could confirm material choice. Confirmed! I've always had a thing for this style of perforated headliner. Reminds me of my Dad's Mercedes.

Big screw-up on struts. I specified Billie B8s (24-006071). That's what Dan ordered. But he got B4s (Comforts). It took Ahab to notice in all my pics the struts weren't yellow. That I never noticed this is not surprising. The rest of you failed me is beyond me. Thank God for Ahab. I'm using this pile of lemons as an opportunity to make lemonade. Namely, I've decided to go with the H&R coilover setup. Which is another reason to get a parts car.
If you know of one in the Seattle area LMK.
