    ***CAtuned E30 Mtech1 Build

    Start the 2013 right off with a new build. Now that the Henna car is done for the most part we can get going on something else.

    CAR: 1986 BMW 325ES (E30)
    128,552 Original Miles
    Alpinweib Original Paint
    Sports Interior but needs work.

    Work done so far: Washed, buffed outside- still needs wax, etc.
    Pulled front end off in preparation for Mtech1 Body kit. Supplied to us by Guten Parts- Levent!

    The Plan:
    1) Change to the Mtech1 body
    2) Re-inforce the body
    3) Convert to 5speed transmission
    4) Install a late model i M20 Motor
    5) Change to Coil over suspension
    6) Upgrade Brakes
    7) Change out Interior
    8) Enjoy ;)



    Car as it sits right now:









    Some parts that will be getting installed some sooner then others:

          hmm.. It was hard to find a clean unmolested body with anything under 150K on the clock.

                    Been wanting to do something like this for a while now. Can't wait to see the finished product, hopefully in person at Socal vintage next year!

                        I am still coming up to visit before I leave. Maybe tomorrow. I should have come today damn it. Sitting around doing nothing. Will you guys let me help out with the car a bit if I come up? lol
                        I need to get my hands dirty. Been away from cars to long.
                        Excited for this build!

                            Too many things to work on anyways. So yes no worries. Come out either work on the MT1 or have other stuff as well. :)
