Ok, I admit, I'm guilty. I did take the BMW for a ride after all. Didn't want to just start the engine, I wanted it to get up to temperature. It was more than a bit tricky because of all the snow this winter they're running out of salt and that means that the snow hasn't been cleared. It still was fun though :)
Also changed the frame braces. I used exhaust clamps to clamp them onto the frame because it's illegal over here to make structural changes to the frame. But I decided to weld some brackets onto the frame and bolt the braces onto those. Didn't have the time to finish the job completely, but it already looks a lot better than the exhaust clamps in my opinion.
