SemiGloss, it looked good in the pictures, the right side was faided down to the paint (clear gone) the roof was all scratched and cracked up...

besides I like it... Im not building it for the look aspect but for performance...

i have a question about the ellipsoids. the lamps themselves are interchangeable between the e30 and the e34 right? just swap in the proper bracket?

the dont at all, nothin is the same... I actually made custom brakets... i well weighted it.. 150 for a set from ebay (the real ones) or attempt a mod with some e34s for 20bucks? so I did that and it works great..

its the stock non ellipsoid e30 braket cut up so they can fit into it, then a few brakets welded so i can adjust the lences etc,, its not to hard...

EXHAUST pics will come as soon as I finish the rear bumper mod im tryin

il keep it posted

flat black FTW

lolz

PS the current paint, Its all rattle canned lol... doenst look bad cost like 60bucks (im savin for some MS and turbo)

Pedal were the only part that should have been hard, but it took maybe 1hr to get them all swapped and wired up... the rest bolts up ez.. and no need to change ecu from an auto to manual car as they are the same but if ur swappin engines then yes (from an e to an i)

You will need, Getrag 260 5spd trans, 5spd drive shaft, Flywheel... PP. clutch pedals, misc lines and 5psd starter...

also u can still use the old auto rad ( iahev it that way and no issues) auto rads have inlet and outlet for trans fluid...

Im goin probably to my garage later today to work on the rear valance... It looks very nice...

thx for lookin
