    Throw back to it's first fill up...on the way to the paint shop, and before all of this madness began...

    "I'm just gonna touch up the sunroof..."

    And it led to this LOL

    I was kidding when I said home stretch last March...:D

    NOW, is the home stretch. A few more things here and there, but for all intent and purpose, HOLY MOTHER OF GOD I SEE THE FINISH LINE.

    @topcarbon I promised you photos way back when, can't get these up on S14 so this is easier for the moment lol.

    does anyone know a good WORLD WIDE way to list my car?

    We died on the vine on BaT.

    I have it on eBay...which :rolleyes:

    I need to move on, and am losing storage.

    i wld have taken the bat high bid - unfortunate reality is it's highly unlikely you will get more than BAT in this market.
