E30 S50 projet!


I have been around a bit on R3v and here and decided to start a new thread here on my built as I'm from Quebec.

Where to start?...

Well I bought a red E30 with a S50 in it , but it was a half finish car, with a lot of mods... I though I could get the body in good shape, but it was too rusted (It may look "good" on the pics, but the suspension points where badly rusted), so I bought a black E30 for 250$, with a nicer body!

I will let the pics speak

The red one, from the day I got it to the day it left:

My plan is to finish revamping the S50, tear appart the black car, rebuilt it and have fun on the track. It's a kind a slow project. Its My hobby.

1995 Us S50

I did a lot of cleaning on the engine and pretty much replaced all the gasket. I also replaced the valve retainers and seals. I'm now in the reassembly phase of the engine.

Initial look:
