              Never did post pictures of the car. Black right now but after the swap is done Iíll paint and make it look good. Working on the dash right now while my secret parts account builds away from the prying eyes of the wife.

                That's a really clean looking car, should be a fun build.

                  Got to working on the dash. I didnít want to flock it so I bought some Colorbond LVP refinisher, didnít put any texture down so you can see where all the body filler went. Iíll use it as a base layer now and apply SEM texture coating then finish off with Dupli-color flat black vinyl paint. Hopefully that will bring back the OEM look.

                    Doing the wiring yourself isn't bad. Lots of patience. I hate wiring and had more time in my harness then I did in the rest of the car but, at the end of it I was very proficient at reading diagrams and i
                    I had saved $800.

                    I used a Mishimoto R32 radiator. No issues from me and I got it as a "returned" item off Amazon for 1/4 the price of a new one. It was brand new, unopened. Paired it with a Spal pusher fan and even on 100 degree days during in traffic, water temp never crossed 210.

                      Anyone in this thread ever tried white gorilla glue as a filler for this kind of split on the dash?

                      It comes out of the tube as a liquid, but foams and expands significantly as it cures. I've done non-cosmetic repairs to the forward center console foam with it.

                        Anybody using this Chase Bays brake option?
                        https://www.chasebays.com/collection...e34-porsche-vw

                        It looks nice, pricey but nice.

                        Still working on the dash, just got some SEM texture coating tonight and Iíll be applying it tomorrow. Also still waiting on the spacer kit to come in to install the Z3 steering rack.

                            CD009 Gear Ratios
                            3.78
                            2.32
                            1.62
                            1.27
                            1.00
                            0.79


                            T56 Gear Ratios 1996Ė1998 Camaro/Firebird (Ratios can be slightly different depending on donor)
                            2.66
                            1.78
                            1.30
                            1.00
                            0.74
                            0.50
                            The CD009 ratios are more like BMW ratios. With an LS, you'll probably want to find a 2.79 or 2.93 rear. The T56's work better with the rear gears that E30's were typically built with.

                              The texture coating was key, the dashboard came out great and I am more than satisfied with it. Patience was the next biggest contributor to the success, getting the filling and sanding right.



                              Thatís just the texture coating.



                              I would definitely recommend the SEM texture coating to anyone looking to do this project. Easy to work with and great results.





                              I was deciding between the matte and gloss finish for the vinyl paint. Glad I went with gloss, I think it looks closer to OEM than the photos Iíve seen with matte.
