    [bricel24] 1986 Zinno 325 *UPDATED 10/12 - PAGE 2*

    First time posting pics of the early model 325 that I have acquired in February this year. She had 192,xxx when I took ownership. EVERYTHING works, always have been a CA car, and the engine runs very smooth.

    The first area of attention were the diving boards and decided to do a facelift. After some time, money and effort, here is what she looks like now.

    Before anyone would criticize, I would like to point out:

    "Needs moar low!"
    Unfortunately I would not be able to drop this more to the ground due to the fact that it's my DD and I work in San Francisco where most garages I park at have very ****ty driveways. SF roads can be unforgiving. If I drop it more then it may be useless to me. The rear has settled more today than in the pics.

    Rear valance
    I am planning to cut an OEM rear valance from another member's part-out late model sometime soon and get it welded on.

    I do know the tips look ugly. That will be addressed sometime down the road. :)

    Front lip
    Yes, it's a HD lip LOL! I will be ordering an IS lip from RyanG soon enough.

    There are still a ton of stuff that need to be worked on such as bushes, brakes, seats. etc...). But this is an exciting project and so far I have been having fun with it.



    Thanks for looking! ;)

          Looks good! No stanceworks or stretched tire crap. Just a clean E30. Thumbs up from me!


            Thanks! That's the goal - a clean DD. :)

                          Thanks. Fortunately, I ran across someone local who planned on doing a facelift to his early model also and have done the rear bumper mod but then aborted the idea, so he posted it up on Craigslist and I swooped it up right away. Saved me lots of time and some money :)
