Happnin` guys , Mark from Stirlingshire , central Scotland .
My day to day car is a E36 318iS Coupe , with full m3 kit and interior .
It came with 18" M6 wheels which are now on the wifes 316 Compact .
Unlike Bazza (who is the second newest member on this forum ) i dont really like polishing , as theraputic as it is it hurts my ageing hands too much so decent paint and regular trips to the carwash and hey presto .
As much as i like the M3 i only do around 50 miles a week in traffic so cant really justify it , i mean i go most of the way sideways anyway as its loadsa roundabouts on my way to work . If there was any motorway , id be right out there picking up an M3 engine . :hihi
I am into my audio and boast a superb system which is currently being installed in the Beemer after being in the last car . Major work in progress there. And for any naughty boys out there , 1st thing i done was have the old alarm torn out and new one put in. None of your cheap shit either , lol .

As for me , im into older cars , and most of my summer is spent restoring capris . I currently own 2 x Mk2 3 Litre capris one a 3 litre Sport `77` and one a 3 litre Gt `75`. Theres ony about 4 Gt`s left and mine is undergoing a full nut and bolt restoration .
The rest of my time im on my PC , either gaming or dabbling with my websites which i am a novice at .
Baz helped me put this together
My 3 Litre Capri Forum
Well thats it really if you wanna know anything else just ask ....:thumbsup

Oh well , not to worry .
I have been building my garage up over the last year or two and last year i got my compressor and air tools ,for xmas i got a nice set of sprayguns . I intend to paint the underside and inside of my capri before it goes to my mates for painting , but by then i will have had some practice and hopefully if im as good as i think i will be then theres no reason why i cannot breathe some life into my old dog and take my spraying to the next level . I like to think im a perfectionist so i dont see why not eh .
I love white cars and the capri is supposed to be white when finished , even tho i have the paint already i think a new direction on colour is on the cards . :confused
A20 RYM , I would like to pick your brain on the 20" wheel issues if there are any.

Thought i better show you it with the new wheels. I got them of Bazzag`s one series but intend to have them recoated in the matt black as they were but have the chrome inserts a gloss black . Think they will look the nuts and that is on the cards soon .
The 1st pic is my wheels on the wifes 316 compact .
