Is there something specific you want details on?
I've just never seen a build thread for it so I was curious. Any more pictures?

I have a few more pictures but of bad angles in my driveway in poor light. Once I get it running a little better I'll put together a summary post.
Or better yet show it off at a meet.

Here is a quick phone picture.

I really dig the green. What shade of green is that?

Details about the M60 swap is a must. I pioneered the DIY-ability of that swap over the past 3 years on my website.

You running Manual brakes? E34 Booster?

Subframe spacers?

What radiator?

5spd? 6spd?

Whos engine mounts?

Mine has been out, just long enough to realize it needs a new tranny, clutch, flywheel and exhaust seems to be plugged up a bit. Ill snap a nice picture when I feel good about it.

Just have a few things like brake lines and suspension to do and it'll be wrapped up.

Haha, well I've got a spare bedroom and I can feed you rice and water!

Tuning is scheduled for the 6th, if things go well then it's time for an open-wheeled track shakedown and then I can start on the fenders once I know the thing won't blow up on me.

Yup! Well it was just a derp around the neighborhood and it was a quiet time of day. Back when I first did the S52 swap and drove it up and down the neighborhood with openheaders... about the time people came back from weekend shopping, THOSE were some looks I got.

Haha yup, it matches me very well.
