Great job on repairing the damage! Many people would have considered it totaled. Thanks for saving an awesome looking car!

WOW is pretty much all I can say. Nice job.

------------------
Anything I might say is probably worth what you paid for it, so treat it accordingly!

Car show on 1 August that I plan on going to.

Still needs fixed.
I have a small oil drip coming from the oil pan or oil level sensor (3800sc)
Need to visit the hardware store and pick up a few bolts and nuts to reinstall my rear sway bar.
Chop a hole in the hood for a vent and polish up the hood a little.

Edit. and fix that low hanging eyelid

Replaced 5 exhaust bolts.
reinstalled rear sway bar.
The oil leak appears to be coming from the oil sensor on the side on the oil pan
added a shim to the head light cover. It still sits a little low.

Just look for the shiny bolts

Good news inspection went good today.

Only failed for two things.

The hood had sharp edges that needs to be sanded down.
And other problem they said the engine can't over power the emergency brake.


So to be fair the e-brake was weak so I tightened the cable and adjusted the rear pistons. So its a little better.
And I sanded down the edges on the hood (planned to do it anyway)


After sanding and grinding away.








After some filler a quick sand and spray of blue paint. I hope this will please the German inspectors when I take it back tomorrow.
