Just buy an Akra

Anyone got a recommendation for the best paint shop in Calgary (or close)? I want to have the hood of my e30 325 convertible painted. The car is 22 yrs old with just 40,300km ... it's in great shape except for the hood which is slightly chipped and had a bird shit stain. I want to hood to look original, i.e., same as the rest of the body, which is excellent shape. Thanks, JB

You mean Lux? You can do it yourself easily!
I am thinking to upgrade my 18 to 19 for next summer, if I have a good offer, I will sell my gunmetal 18 ones.

I don't know about easy... I suggest dating a circus freak for a week or two and get her to install them...

I had to get a friend to help install mine cause I could not get my hands in that tiny head light hole...

I'm down for a meet, seems the weekend will be warm. But I guess, as long as it ain't snowing I'm good.

Hopefully I can make this next meet as I missed out on the last one. It would be nice to connect with you guys and put a face to your user names. Unfortunately I am only available this Sat morning.
