Did a bit of fitting the bodywork. Ran into a small snag. The replica Turbo front spoiler I got (which is the same one sold on the bmw2002faq.com) has a bit of an issue lining up with the front fender flares. So far I left it, but I will attend to it later, definitely before the car gets painted.
This is how the car sits as of current. Got the spring sizes picked, just need to buy shocks, and the main of the suspension is more less sorted.
And one wheel test fitment teaser. I am satisfied with the offset, although I may have to space it out 5-10mm. Waiting until I get some longer studs, then I will mount the wheels on all four corners.
Last week got the 318 5spd transmission cleaned up, ready to bolt it on the motor to mock up the driveline, so we can make some mounting points for the transmission support bracket. That should happen I hope within the next two weeks, as school now bites back into my schedule.
