    E30 dorifto project | ALOT of pics!

    Me and my friends (Aron Andrew E30 325i mtechII and bjahja e36 323i Turbo) bought a cheap tramp here in Iceland to work on this winter.

    2 weeks ago we drove to the country site and picked it up.

    It is a 1988 BMW 318 with a dead engine, broken oil pan and driven until it died

    I just wanted to show you guys the process, we've been working on it now for 2 weeks, mostly stripping it and painting.

                Looks like a dope project. I followed the pictures, but where did that orange driver side door come from? Anyways cant wait to see the result.

                  we painted it ;)

                  The car will be two-toned like Bjahja said.

                  We have primed the whole car and we have started painting most of it except the front fenders... we still need to buy them.

                  Soon we will show you more pictures of the orange front apron and bumpers 8-)

                          These are e36 coilovers, you just have to cut the front struts as we did and they work like a charm:D.

                              We'll take some better pictures from behind next time, here is how the coilovers are mounted at the front http://myndasafn.bmwkraftur.is/d/47501-2/IMG_5644.JPG and they are mounted just like the stock springs at the back. We can take some pics of the rear suspension next time.

                              These coilovers work well with some performance dampers, we are starting off with stock dampers and see how long they will last :D
