My 2000 E39 528iT - M5 full conversion and full color change a

Hi! Im new to the forum and thought id share a bit of my upcoming plans. I do paint and body for a living so Ive recently taken apart the wagon to do a full color change from silver to the new 2017 M3 Sakhir Orange... a few weeks ago with the car taken apart for paint the unthinkable happened... i picked up a 2001 dark green on caramel M5... well this got my screws turning... im thinking of finishing up the wagon and driving it around fpr a little bit and in the meantime taking care of any quirks that the M5 may have and once its driving perfectly... well... take it apart to do an entire M5 conversion... from exterior... to interior... to wheels and suspension as well as exhaust system...

Here are some pics of the 2 cars...
