WOW!!!! I had to go back to original picutres of the crash to see the damage before and now afterwards. To be honest i would of proabably gone for another shell if i was in your shoes but its great to say you didn't give up your e30. Looks like the body shop did a A+ job....are you still going to go through the entire repaint?
Part of the reason I didn't want to get another shell was that I simply love THIS car.
Another part was that when the car was stripped, there was very minimal rust, almost nothing to be honest. That's a testament to "zee Germanz" and even more so to the previous owner.
Yes, I am going to repaint it, it's a perfect time to do it. I still don't know what color, but I am leaning towards something crazy, like M3 yellow, it's only going to be a track car and possibly a race car next season
Something like this
Sorry for bumping an old thread, BUT...
It took much longer than I expected, but at least the cage is done.
All credit for this work of art goes to O'Brien Motorsports.
Now all I have to do is some minor crap like suspension, drivetrain, paint, etc...
P.S. Please note the latest breakthrough in racing seat design - lightweight and vented. I think I should patent it
Ron did a excellent job. I like! How did he weld the plate underneath on the front strut tower?
Beats me. I asked that question when I brought the car in as I though that it may be a problem, but he said he knows what to do about it... I guess he does.
I really like it. He made it a bit wider on my side, so that I could fit my fat ass seat in there.
He still has to tie it to the diff, but I have to get a new rear subframe first, as mine is slightly bent.
do you mean eccentric semi-trailing arm bushings? if so, any reason you don't wanna go with camber/toe adj kit instead, like the one from IE ?
Very nice cage! and the car seems to come together nicely. Any plans for the heart?
Already ordered that from Bimmerworld.
I want it reliable enough for enduros and hope that I have enough time and money to rebuild it, mostly to re-fresh it... maybe a 288 cam, but nothing crazy (like you, godless S50 people).
