e30 bUILD | tINT & tAIL LIGHTS?!?!

Fitment Industries Author | | November 2nd, 2018 |

  • - So we're about to get the car tinted up.
    We're going 15% all around and then we're doing a Fitment Industries banner across the windshield. We're getting that done by Fox Valley Tint and Wrap, the number one tint specialist and detail and ceramic pro people in this building.
    - Thank you.
    You better!
    - We also got the wheels back from powder coat. They are looking super good. And we're waiting on the gold hardware to come in and the tires, and then we're gonna get these things mounted up on the car. And it should be lookin' pretty flossy.
    You like the pungent smell of gasoline in the morning?
    - [Steve] Oh yeah.
    Gasoline smells good.
    So what're we doing?
    - Well, we're about to get the windows tinted on the E30. And this rear speaker tray needs to come out because the tinting guy said it's a pain in the ass to do it with that in there. So, we're gonna take
    it off for him.
    Not gonna lie, didn't think it'll be that easy. Speaker one.
    Speaker two.
    Our brake light. Our brake light!

    To put that back in. One of the things on the parts list where they carbon fiber our speaker shelf.
    - [Steve] Oh.
    - So hopefully we get that.

    - [Steve] So what's next?
    - Tint.
    All right, so the E30 is being tinted right now so we figured it's the perfect time to rip out the taillights and get them tinted red. We figured since we've been doing the whole Euro theme around the front with the clear side markers, we might as well keep it going around back. So we got red nightshade that way we could delete the amber side markers and it should give it a nice Euro-cohesive look.
    - Hi Steve.
    - [Steve] Hi Cory.
    - How are you?
    - [Steve] I'm good, how are you?
    - I'm good.
    - [Steve] What are you doing?
    - [Cory] I'm taking out the interior on the car.
    - [Steve] Oh.
    - Get it ready for the new seats.
    New carpet. New everything.
    - [Steve] That sounds fun, do you got something over here at the (beeps) end you want to show us?
    - Oh yeah.
    That's our nice tinted taillights. We went with the dark red. So they look kinda black, they look kinda red.
    - [Steve] The lighting's not the greatest right here.
    - Yeah.
    Do you approve?
    - Why do you want me to answer that question?
    - [Steve] All right, so, if you ask me, I think they're a little dark.
    - Same.
    - [Steve] That's my personal preference.
    - I think they're
    - That they're a little bit dark.
    - too dark, too.
    - [Steve] But, I mean, when you--
    - [Cory] They look factory made.
    - [Steve] When you back up over here, they look pretty good on camera.
    - [Cory] It's the lighting in here too though.
    - So if Cory wants to be classy, we got him a new exhaust tip.
    And a nice intake.
    To bump up that four-cylinder BMW motor a little bit.

    - [Steve] I don't think it goes up any farther, dude.
    - It has to!
    - [Steve] I don't think it does, bro.
    I don't think it does.
    - It has to!
    - Okay, and are you getting black carpet done?
    - [Cory] Hey, I got a screw.
    - [Tayler] Where is it?
    - Can you give me a 10 millimeter socket?
    - [Tayler] Yeah.
    - Thanks.
    The first time in her life she was ever helpful.
    - [Tayler] Hey (beeps).

    - Whoa! Well, Steve, the viewers asked us for a luxury interior. I don't know about you.
    I don't think this is very luxury carpet. So we got it ripped out. Got the car looking like a race car show right now. Then we're gonna get some nice, black, plush, beautiful carpet in there for you guys. And it's gonna be one hell of an E30.
    Bad news. We got a gas leak on the E30. It looks like it's coming from the top of the engine though, so looks like we'll be able to figure that out relatively easy. So tune in next week to see if we get that fixed and what the issue is. Don't forget, if you need wheels, tires, or suspensions, check us out at www.fitmentindustries.com.
