Cool OEM CSL Roof install on my M3

Well Guys,

I got a wonderful gift from a good friend and member on here, an OEM CSL roof. He had it lying around at home since last year but didn't get the chance to install it. We came to an agreement and he dropped the roof off at my shop a few weeks ago.

I set about ordering the adhesive, applicator gun and front and rear window seals. Everything arrived in a week but the adhesive took 5 weeks to get here. Thanks to member disapr for the advice on which glue and gun to get.

Some pics.....











Dropped the car off at ekanooracing last Saturday for the install.









Might get the BBS CH's refurbished at the same time.

Please follow my friend ekanoo's page:

I'll keep the thread updated with as many pics i can during the install.

So here are pics from 2 days ago with the interior removed and ready to start drilling and grinding away spot welds etc.





This is in order to remove the roof.

Darth Vaders waaaiitttiiinnggg.....


Cleaned the roof from the inside with alcohol to prep the surface for bonding. It is beautiful how BMW have markings underneath to help align the roof with the car and center support beam....








Applying the SEM adhesive....














Then the roof becomes one with the car.....






















Interior goes in tomorrow after the cars had about 24 hours of no moving etc. Wheels wont be painted this time but will get them done in a few weeks.

More pics to come tomorrow....hopefully

Oh and just to let you guys know i had SO MUCH FUN standing around in 115f, 70% humidity taking pics
