Hello all fanatics out there.

Here is a view of my custom build e46 320d touring from the beginning to who knows...

I bought this car in the summer 2010 and went from a caravelle t4, så that was HUGE difference...
I bought the car lowered, and with original BMW rims and tinted windows, i though that would be enough for now...
but i was wrong!!!
since i have made a bit mods inside and outside, but will primary have focus on the outside in this thread i think...
Just to mention some i bought new rims, front bumper, cleaned the car for logos, lowered, antenna removed and so on...
I have been writing under every picture what the change is, så just look at the pictures, and give me your pros and cons pls.

The whole idea is to get the car as low and wide as possible but still not exaggerating it.
I think i got pretty damn close....


the car almost like i bought it


the wheels mounted and the car put to the floor


to get a view of how much the fenders needed to be stretched


Work in progress......


A small bulge from earliere owner has been correced, and the front fenders can be processed...


Controlling the height, or lack of height


the fender has been processed with a BIG hammer so far..


Fender from the inside.. a bit of the the has been cut of in order to get the best result for rust-protecting later then..


Left Rear Side...


Has been processed and cleaned for paint and rust, ready to get first layer of filler


Same procedure in the front..






the filler has been sanded.. still needs a bit work..






About 1 inch/2.5cm the fender has been towing out




The planning for "bad boy" and front bumper




the stock m3 frontbumper, not particulary pretty with that big ugly licenseplate thingy going on...


better... know with a clean look




the bad boy has been welded




preparing the car for paint, everything needs to be stripped






Here my friend are melting tin insted of filling with filler, experience tells me that over time the filler is sinking...














Ready for painting...




The headlight has been disassembled, cleaned for dust?!"# and know painted matt black. What af difference!!


Before


After

More pics will follow, but i have to solve the problem with 40 pics limit in the threads!!!

Thank you guys!
I would really like M3 mirrors, but i'am in lack of money at the moment ;)
but it's definitely one of the next things on my to-do list.

I filled the emblems cause i want a cleaner look.
hmm when i had to get the hood painted anyway they just kind of disappeared in the hurry :bump:
