Happy Friday! A big thank you to everyone who stopped by the shop for Black Friday last week! We hope everyone enjoyed a great Thanksgiving holiday weekend with family and friends.
Last week was Jason’s last day with us here at the shop. A great opportunity presented itself to him, and we wish him all the best! We will miss his work ethic, his willingness to help out with whatever is needed, and his fantastic sense of humor. Thank you for giving 110% each and every day that you were here. We’ll miss you, Jason!

This bimmer had been repainted its original color, and the body shop had incorrectly spaced the M3 badge, as seen below:
Reggie removed the badge and the old adhesive:
Next, he did some wet-sanding and buffing so that there would be no trace of the previous placement of the badge:
Using three different buffing pads, he gently buffed the area to achieve the desired result:
Then it was time to outline the proper placement of the coveted M3 badge:
Once Reggie was satisfied with the measurements, it was time to apply 3M 2-sided tape to the back of the M and 3. He then applied the 3:
Then the M after accounting for the proper space in between:
He carefully removed any adhesive that peeked out from the edges:
And here’s the result:
