My E30 Convertible Project.....What U Guys Think?

All right guys finally got me an E30 which i was looking for.(only cabi) I got it about 4 weeks ago and finally started to do some work on it. All the parts are now complete except some interior pieces. I put the interior together,but the front seats were a pain in the ass to get in and fit properly.

so here are some of the things i did sooo far:

Front seats put in
Rear seats put in
Front bumper and valance currently working on was in pretty bad shape.
changed the headlights to elipsoids(thanks FIL.works good)
front fender needed some work
got all the trunk liner in as it was missing all the pieces
got all the bumper lights in

The car is still in being worked on as i havent got that much time to finish it but i'm hoping ill have it painted by next week if the weather is good for me.

Other than that here are some pics of the car when i got it and BEFORE i started to work on it.

The piece that you currently have installed under where your front bumper would be is for early bumpered (aluminum) cars.

But your rear bumper is for a late model (plastic) bumpered car. So I am curious what kind of bumper you are putting on the front.

I am putting in a plastic bumper from the late models ones.....just the bottom piece is from the earlier model. I liked the way it looked so i got it and had to do some custom fitting cause it wasnt as exact fit.

i hope i explained it well.
