This project began on September 11th 2010 and was finished on July 4th 2011.When I got this car it was an automatic (blown transmission), painted army green with brush (seriously!), rusted out 1989 E30!
This is what this sad car looked like
As you can see, I was collecting parts long before the restoration started
First thing we had to do was fix the body and get rid of all the rust, so the work has started
since we were going to rebuild the motor and do the 5 speed swap, we pulled the whole drivetrain out
Work was done on the engine and we started to put it together, this engine got the whole remake!
Old suspension went straight to garbage
Engine bay received some massaging and was resprayed in the new color, techno age space silver
Some of the work that was going on at the same time
The work on the body has continued
and we started to assemble the drivetrain
newly rebuilt 3:73 LSD
Factory 5 Speed Gearbox
shaving the e30 doors to look like M3 doors
