... but Gregosh had one of the best top dogs of all time.

I met Gregosh yesterday to ensure progress was made. When I arrived I was happy to see Greg was already wearing gloves, and holding car parts! Upon closer inspection, I realized that the car is literally at least 90% complete... so close.

His tape player helped to set the tone of the day:

I got to work precision fitting a couple interior trim pieces, and removing the last of those legendary M3 mirrors to replace it with something more traditional. Meanwhile, Greg finished buttoning up the front suspension.

At this point we primed the engine to make sure the bone dry internals had some oil on them and started up the 50,000km motor. It lives! Here's photo proof, you can see Greg taping a 4 year old 10 day temp permit to the inside of the windshield.

Yes folks, the car was moving under its own power on public roads.

I knew you would call photoshop... so here's further evidence: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=HLPz8T5JxHY

After coming back, and allowing Greg's adrenaline surging body to dilute a bit, he was inspired to wash off the years of garage dust. This is big.

Image

Car looks pretty damn complete, no? About 3 more of these, and a ride height tweak I'd say.
Image

They are gorgeous... the finish on the centres is stunning, glass smooth clearcoat.

As you can see there is a light at the tunnel. This was a very inspiring afternoon! And delicious, thanks again for the Polish BBQ :)

It's true, I *was* going to call "staged shot" for the on-the-road photo :lol:

Thanks again Rick for your help. :heart: Everything should be buttoned up next weekend. Bought some of them Harley valve stems for the rims today and with a little modification they will work!

Do you want fancy wheels to run on so I can see it looking pretty before the RSs get done?

It sounds like the RSs should be mounted very soon... but I'd love to see that thing on the Porscherellis :heart:

My pleasure Greg... see you next Sat ;)

Wait... so does this mean 'WOB-POS' will be removed from long term parking!? :o

Greg, the car looks amazing, and the wheels look incredible. Rob, stop trying to pawn off your Porcharellis..... they'll fit an E30 as well. :lol:

Just wanted to say that between the facts that:
a) the car only needs to get to and from the photoshoot, and back to its garage for indefinite slumber
b) how low your mkIII was

I expect to see the lowest static mkII ever :)
