      you should get a coupe, so you can put your doors on it, and your hood

      that way you dont have to paint them agian

        I'm thinking of re-painting the car (rollering) a different color altogether if i get another shell.

          Since youve got a coupe eta beater I say hell yeah go for it. Your motor puts out so much power you wont notice the extra weight. With a proper suspension it will still handle awesome, and since it can be a summer only car, I say hell yeah. Id like to see more modded cabs out there. When done well theyre fucking sick.

              if you're going ahead with the M30 + turbo, I'd go for a shell that has a roof. Stiffer, lighter, and safer.

                I know scotts getting out of the game, you should talk to him. Not sure if hes going to get completely out, or just store it, but its worth a shot. His cars relatively local, and most of the body work prep has been done. Havent seen the progress since the fall, but I think its at least primered.

                And if this doesnt make you want a cab, Im not sure what will.

                      If you get the cabby definately have a cage fabbed up for it. I wouldnt have that kind of power with an open top with no cage.

                        vert seems unsafe with that much power. What if you r3v it again and roll?

                          You guys are probably right...maybe I should think about a 2 door coupe.. That would probably be more logical.

                              Since e30's are unibody's, Does anyone make frame connectors to stiffen the body up? And the conv. will have more flex over the coupe like stated before.
