A bit of an update,
Got the rear end back on:
It was a nice day yesterday so i took a couple shots of it back on the ground:
..And a couple shots of the 3 generation bimmers
(shawn's e46 and e36)
And we pulled the m50 out of Shawn's car..
Now i have to strip down this block and swap everything over to the functional block we have sitting out back.
