So I've got a new project on my hands! I picked this gem up about a month ago

An 86 325e (the 'e' must stand for extremely slow.. ) Apart from some surface rust, it's pretty close to mint. the underbody is in great shape, way better than the race car was. Unfortunately, it's a 4 door.. I really wanted a coupe, but when I saw what kind of shape this was in, I was sold. It had all the service records from 86 to the late 90's and was clearly well maintained.

First thing, I had to give it a drop. Picked up some GE Coilovers

Next, needed some wheels, my old 16x9's from the racecar, wrapped with 225's

Then, Had to get rid of the god awful diving boards

Still have the rear to do, just need to find the time.

And how she sits now

Lots of work still to do, mostly cleaning up the body, but i'm pretty excited about it so far!
