    Vlad, since you guys do everything else that's totally insane why not swap the tail panel to accept the early tails?
    I was thinking the exact same thing until I saw the latest pictures with the work already being done...

    yes, it will be sick and I can't wait to finish it either but there is a long way to go still



    the original quarter was not cut, it was retained for strenght, only the M3 quarter skin was welded onto the existing e30 TOruring quarter, the skin is very light, probably less than 5 lbs



    more fabrication and work on the rear door

    very much agreed, it doesn't flow with the rest of it.

    Every time I open this thread, I anxiously await for the next day to see what else has been done to this touring.

    Great project Vlad. :up:

    Vlad just made an M3 touring happen so only positive thoughts and encouragement here.

    and I'm curious about the plans for the rear end and tail lights... M3 rear bumpers always seem to look strange with late-model tails. Although, the touring factor trumps all doubts
    I think on the touring it looks ok



    and the doors will come off for more rust proofing and paint job
