i have an 89 325i 4 door and it has great potential, the only problem is that the frame rail near the front tires on both sides has rotted through. I dont know if it would be wise to fix this , so i am looking for a shell or really rough e30 with a good frame. I am going to make this a long project as money is tight so i want to spend wisely. any leads or help here would be great. ideally if someone has what they consider a shit box and want it gone, i could find a way to get it.
cheers guys
as always thanks for your help

anybody, just need a cheap shell. doesnt need to have an engine, tranny,or interior, just something to roll it onto a trailer.

I have an e30 body i'm trying to get rid of. The front had a bit of an accident, but aside from the hood, bumper and rad support, everything else is straight and good.

this is what the car used to be.

as far as rust goes, its just some surface rust in a few places. It's a 1991. i'll pm the price
