    Talk to Jono about that one. I believe he did this on a track rat? May work for a race car, but I'm pretty sure you would not want to have it in a street car.

    You are right! And that solves the mystery. The engine compartment photo is not of the salvage E420, it's from some other car, probably an E500E.

    If you look closely at the junkyard E420 with the hood up, you can see the ABS unit behind the driver headlight, confirming it's a non-ASR car. I thought that engine compartment looked awfully nice for a rusted-out 034!

    Hey Terry ,

    The seats are done and look great they are the two previous pics I posted. They are matte like factory and not shiny and greasy looking anymore.

    The caliper paint I used was VHT high temp bright red . Its used for Headers but I have used it on all my cars in the past and it lasts for a long time.
