    Lots of driving today, roughly 6 hours total. Took a trip to Houston to help a guy pull the driveline out of a 92 3 series vert, in exchange he allowed me to cut off the core support for my own car. Removing the core support made engine removal super easy anyways.



    Going to make the core on my V8 E30 removable, might try to get that going this weekend, but have a lot of other stuff around the house to do, so who knows.

      Back at another lull in the action, as my side business (electric guitar pickups) has started really picking up... Not sure when I'll have more time to get back to this to be honest, there's so much work right now.

          Yes I've seen that. I'm going to wind up sectioning the front end on the red one further back, and make it bolt on at several points. I think this will be much simpler than the Garagistic setup, and will repair some crumpled metal on the drivers side rail.

            Wow, you've done a lot of work since I've last seen the thread. Seeing all this makes me happy I found a guy who sold me all of his v8 swap parts for ridiculously cheap. Keep up the good work man 👌🏼

              My HOA finally got on me about this car... Have to get it in the garage. I'm going to put it in with the front towards the outside so every time I open my garage my neighbors have to look at it.

                Neighbors are more of a pain in the ass than E30 V8 swaps.

                  I will concur with that last statement! Fun build, good luck.

                    It's in the garage now, ugly as ever for the neighbors to hate.

                        No, still too busy. I sold the radial arm saw that's to the left of my E30 in that last picture though, so slightly more room
