I know i said that i wasn't going to do anything to the body until last, but i was bored today, so i removed the kidneys and grill off my E30 and painted them satin black. What do you guys think?

That's quite a sleeper. It's going to be all E36 with E30 sheet metal when your finished. I like it a lot.

I guess that's a starting point for selling your old drive train, but I don't know who would buy it. Someone replacing a bad M42 won't necessarily need all of the extras and wouldn't be inclined to pay for them. Maybe a 2002 owner would want it?

WOW!! Those are some huge tires for an E30!! Do you have any problems with rubbing?

Car looks good! I'm loving the M3 brakes (that's some great stopping power on the lighter chassis)!

Project is coming along very nicely!

Guys we are witnessing the Creation of Greatness here...

BTW the E36 M3 steering rack will fit, and http://www.zionsvilleautosport.com has a instruction CD-ROM for US$24.95

You're obviously pretty handy with tools, so you probably won't need it.
