e36 to e30 grafting

I'm going to paint my new e30 since the paint is shit. While I'm at it I'm going to be doing some body work.

I want to graft some e36 tails into the rear since there is so much more aftermarket support out there. Possibly another BMW if theres any that would look decent. My uncle owns a custom paint and body shop so I'll be doing this there with his help.

My question is does anyone have any pics of this? Or can someone photoshop me a pic? I was thinking of the e36 red /clear or the e36 blackedout altezza lights, or maybe some e34 ones without the center piece.

These would look way better.



Zimmie, whats the best way to do this? I was going to use a cutting disc to cut out the right space, and then tack weld some 22g steel to fill in the rest. Then just sand, prime, and paint.
