    The Vert and The Coupe

    I'm starting this build thread now, so I can remember to update it, since I keep forgetting to make one.

    I have 2 E30s, as the title would suggest.

    The Vert (aka Champagne Papi aka Old Man) (Acquired 11/2018)
    1989 325i

    Looks
    How it came:
    Bronzitbeige (a fan favorite)
    Natural Interior

    My plans for it:
    Brilliant Red wrap or paint
    Lotus White / MTech Evo Black cloth interior (in progress)

    Power
    How it came:
    M20B25
    5-Speed Manual Transmission

    My plans for it:
    Refresh M20B25 (a lot of this work is done already, but I have decided to pull the engine and fix it even more, along with cleaning/restoring the engine bay)
    Transmission is fine, no plans for it

    The Coupe (aka Frankie) (Acquired 01/2020)
    1986 325es

    Looks
    How it came:
    Alpinweiss
    Pearl Beige Interior (not for long)

    My plans for it:
    help the Alpinweiss paint, someone rattle-canned parts of it at some point in it's life, but it will stay white
    Cardinal Red Interior

    Power
    How it came:
    M20B27
    5-Speed Manual Transmission

    My plans for it:
    Refresh M20B27 for now
    S54 swap once I have finished all of the other projects in my life / $$$
    Transmission is fine, no plans for it until swap time

    I am currently taking the vert's interior apart and cleaning up / rebuilding the seat frames and mechanics.
