Cool ALL PROJECTS and Front LED Bar...DONE!

In the last weekend or so I've been very busy installing parts. I did the Oil Catch Can, Spray painting flares, The Bomex rear spoiler, and the front LED Light bar. here.

Easy, and it was a teachers doing things. Like when you see a teacher who uses the Digital Caliper to measure, you know its going on right. Here.

His name, Luis Rivera, a math teacher, (no wonder). Same one who helped to install the rear disc brakes. Price? Well, a Pizza and a (oh, BTW, pepperoni and Spanish sausage, extra cheese and two Zero CC)

Well done man, all look good.
I've seen on the bonnet before, very cool.

Wow, digital caliper to measure the bumper cut off? Well, if it is not done right it is wrong.

Cool

I guess he is one of those perfectionists. He made the cut with a Dremel. I thought it was never going to end. He kept cutting until the bar fit perfectly, and I mean to the last mm. He place an aluminum bar in the back with four screws with nuts and a piece of foam in the rear so when he torqued down (yes torque it down) it wouldn't vibrate. He then leveled it with a level ruler. Adjusted all screws and it was solid. You can't ask for more for the price of a Pepperoni pizza and two Zero Cokes.

I like your enthusiasm Mensajero. I must admit these little vehicles grew on me. I never thought my bimmer would have a rival in my garage when it came to projects and upgrades.
