made with bottle caps.

except for the part where you can't bounce what so ever with any sort of effective aim lol.

That being said I rarely ever bounce. Also I'm sure that there is some glass on top now that I think about it as I'm typing..... so ya.. is best design for sure.

nintendo themed pong table is legit! the girls are planning to make a really awesome design beer pong table for Ben's house too, I suspect its going to be mostly corona/budlite caps however we do drink a decent variety as well....at last count we had almost two of those 2lb pickle jars full of caps.....after 7 months......

Indeed.

Also something went bang on the bmw this morning. went over a road gap/bridge and heard what sounded similar to a gunshot from the rear suspension, everything seemed hunky dory but right before I got to work I started hearing some rubbing noise from the same corner....must investigate and hopefully I didnt majorly eff something up....

I knew suspension was going to be next on the list so I've been keeping an eye out for deals and with the money I'm getting back from insurance I can square the rear suspension up.

found a couple decent deals this morning on suspension in the $500-650 range

H&R Cup kit with camber plates
H&R Coilovers without camber plates.
Dinan Stage 2 (essentially a koni cup kit plus bigger sway bars)

I'm leaning towards the H&R's first due to height adjustable-ness and coming off 3 cars with coils I want to be able to go low again. the Dinan kit is also very tempting as its supposed to ride nice and smooth like an oem m3 but with higher cornering abilities due to the better dampers/bars.

Just build frame, apply light coat of resin just as thick as the caps, apply caps like crazy, apply more resin to top of caps to create play field.
