Thanks guys! Just an update on what I got done today.

1.
The brakes were bled, except the left front. I kept taking shit apart, but it refused to bleed. Even with the caliper off, there was no fluid and pressure on the brakes.

Eventually I got pissed and kicked the brake pedal HARD. Suddenly a load of brown frothy brake fluid SHOT out of the line onto the floor. A few more hard kicks and it was bleeding no problem.

2.
Got the clutch bled.

3.
Got my exhaust from the downpipes in place. Just have to figure out what I'm doing for the flanges on the start of it. (really tight among the subframe and sway bar)

4.
Got the hood and fenders on.

5.
Found my mirrors and put em on.

6.
Washed some of the car and sanded some of the really bad areas. Still VERY patina.

The stock M50 ones.

I made my own. Took me a day, still have a little more work to make em line up with my stock 325i exhaust.

The exhaust on this car is just being done to save me cash right now. I'll do something more high performance down the road. (when I have time to research what I want)

Wow, I didn't notice! I have both manifolds, but the E34s were in better shape so those went on. Annoying to get the front most on and off though.

You got me excited that there was an easier way to be doing this. *sigh* I guess I have to make proper downpipes and not just one big exhaust from manifolds to muffler.

I just have a shot of me in the positioning, grinding, tack welding stage. I used MIG so don't shoot me, but it's not pretty.

I was putting the rear end back into the E36 to send it to the junk yard (that Kip kid with the hunter green E36 bailed on taking the rear end) and it started snowing. Then we go inside and it's sunny. Then the tow truck comes and it's snowing again!! What the hell, winter!

What all is left to do with yours?

Here's where I left the car, progress wise.



Then I flew to TOronto for the day and went to the auto show. This was the best part. (EVERLAST, TAKE NOTES)



Now there is the first of the AE86s in the garage, since another guy broke the key for the E30 in half, thereby locking me out.
