    More carbon fiber goodness on the way! I'm a bit fed up with how the oem panels fit behind the cage (they're not perfect). The only real fix is to remove the panels and replace them. I already have carbon fiber rear armrests which'll look quite nice on the panels. I'll also fit the oem speakers, they're quite clever how they screw together!

    Just updating this thread, missed a few things. Safety gear pretty much sussed, almost ready for track! Just gotta pass scruitineering then we are good. Cage homolgated a-ok. Got some 3d printed collars to hold harnesses in place. Gotta sort out some trim issues on the rear cards, I had to cut them up to fit behind rollcage. Ive also sent my old oem steering wheel in to the trim shop to be restored. There was nothing too wrong with it, but I’d like to have it in new condition as a spare to go with all the rest of the oem parts. I have also picked up a spare front bumper which is finally at the panelbeaters getting painted (thanks again @JohnM575) and another oem bonnet to have a play with. Next up, another set of semis and a bit more time on the track..!

    Yep the later model m3's came with this kind of carbon kevlar bumper support. Not sure if it's the same on all e46's bro?

    Had a little damage to the front spoiler after the Gumboot Rally so pulled the bumper and had a go at fiberglassing the spoiler whilst on the bumper. I've fixed it before (off the bumper) but adhered it rather too well so don't want to remove & reattach if I can avoid it.

    I applied paint protection film to the carbon ashtray cover today. It's been annoying me how soft the clear coat is, and it swirls and attracts fingerprints super-easily. Hopefully this'll make it better. Untitled by Christian Taylor, on Flickr

    SPOTTED! The official thread

    The massive dents in the bootlid offer an alternate outcome to your line of thinking 🤣

    Also can't remember if I shared this before or not, present from Kayne Barrie when he rebuilt this motor last year. Those with a keen engineering eye may spot something wrong here 😂 Untitled by Christian Taylor, on Flickr

    Tegiwa m3 cup canards have arrived! This is my 3rd set of canards for this car, but only the 2nd set actually made for this bumper. You'd think I would have learnt by now... I went with plastic rather than carbon fiber like the other sets, these are quite likely going to be hidden under the AGT carbon set Untitled by Christian Taylor, on Flickr Untitled by Christian Taylor, on Flickr Untitled by Christian Taylor, on Flickr Untitled by Christian Taylor, on Flickr Untitled by Christian Taylor, on Flickr Here's what they'll look like: And with my AGT carbon dive planes on top:

    Update time! Spent a bit of time the other day trimming & fitting the rear interior (carpets, seat base & panels). Starting to look normal again..! Untitled by Christian Taylor, on Flickr I butchered the rear cards to make them fit past the cage, no other way unfortunately. Off to the trim repairer next to get this fixed up (it's a bit beyond my abilities). Boot carpet & trims fitted: Untitled by Christian Taylor, on Flickr Also the steering wheel turned up so I fitted it. Looks good, and all the buttons work a-ok! Test fit (ignore the airbag gap this is now sorted): Untitled by Christian Taylor, on Flickr This was the problem: Untitled by Christian Taylor, on Flickr Untitled by Christian Taylor, on Flickr Untitled by Christian Taylor, on Flickr Glued the velvet side trims with ADOS contact adhesive, this has been annoying me for ages: Untitled by Christian Taylor, on Flickr My Storm gearknob turned up too. It's so damn heavy!! Looks good in the darker finish imo, should suit the car. Untitled by Christian Taylor, on Flickr Untitled by Christian Taylor, on Flickr Untitled by Christian Taylor, on Flickr I've also bought a whole lot of safety stuff in the past few weeks: Untitled by Christian Taylor, on Flickr Untitled by Christian Taylor, on Flickr Untitled by Christian Taylor, on Flickr Untitled by Christian Taylor, on Flickr Untitled by Christian Taylor, on Flickr Untitled by Christian Taylor, on Flickr Untitled by Christian Taylor, on Flickr Also ordered these from Allports, waiting shipment later this week: Passed homologation and got my logbook: Untitled by Christian Taylor, on Flickr
