Gtrain -- thanks!
Mtek -- When I worked with the parts department of my local BMW dealership to figure out what all parts I would need for this conversion and put together a parts list and compiled the BMW part numbers, 1M side skirts were included, but when the order was placed he forgot to order them. So they were not available for this initial test-fit and these pics, but I'm told that they are in and will be delivered to the shop tomorrow (they were supposed to be delivered to the shop doing the work yesterday or today, but now I'm told tomorrow). After a quick test-fit and hoping that no other parts are missing or that we didn't miss any parts that are still needed then I'm hoping that prep and paint can start Monday morning. Fingers crossed.
