E30 from UK

Hi All,

My name is Seenan and I just moved from London to Toronto and despite getting laughed at by many family members I have had my E30 project brought over on a container to Toronto...
I have owned the car for many years and have been trying to do an engine swap to the M52B28 from the newer e36.
The car is now sat in a container ready to be collected but I dont have a house yet so I was hoping someone on here might be able to suggest a garage/mechanic to take it to help finish off the swap and finally get her running.

Main things left to do are:
-Welding 1 plate under the driver side footwell - rusty section has been cut out
-installing fuel filler neck and expansion tank along with fuel lines and hoses
-connecting gearbox to engine which are both in the car now, although when we tried we cracked the sump a bit but from what we can see it is in an area which would not leak any oil
-attach wiring loom to engine

I am pretty sure I have all the parts but on a project like this I have also said that many times before and then ended up searching for bits online... sigh.

If anyone can suggest someone or if anyone has a garage set up at home with some knowledge of these vehicles I would of course be willing to pay for the help... I just don't really know many people in this country so hoping this forum can help with that.

Looking forward to many years of BMW related motoring in Canada!

Thanks for reading
