    Man, your car is sick! Did you ever get the ITB's installed?

    The E30 just looks so right with an M30 stuffed in the bay

    Why yes, as a matter of fact...

    The past 9 months or so the car has been up at Classic Daily (JakeB's shop) getting some love. I moved and in doing so lost my garage space so I haven't really had the option of doing any major work on it myself - not that I could do half the shit he helped me with anyway!

    Basically, Jake's the man.

    I'm actually supposed to pick her up next weekend... All the rust was removed and treated (floorplans, frame rails, battery box, etc.) and she got a fresh coat of cirrusblau paint in addition to refreshing the engine and a fair amount of other upgrades

    I plan on posting a very detailed update soon, but in the meantime, here are a few shots of the surgery and fresh paint

    One of my favorite colors with a great swap happening soon.

    Love the wheels too. I've decided I'm going with the same wheels on my new project when the time comes.

    I'm looking forward to seeing this one as you make more progress..

    Made some progress on the M30 today... took it apart and sending the intake manifold, valve cover, oil pan, and some other bits and pieces to get powdercoated. Also ordered a bunch of parts to refresh it: intake manifold gaskets, VCG, new thermostat, FIPG for the oil pan, e28 radiator, some new hoses, thermostat, distributor cap + rotor, rear main seal, etc.



    Can't wait til this thing is all ready to go
