              Going to try and peel off the other quarter panel and rocker tomorrow. Have Seahawks Family Football Fest on Sunday, so I've got tomorrow only for this weekend.

                      Got the other rocker off and just have a little to take off on the driver's side then I can call the E30 ready



                      Also swapped out the cap and rotor. Damn$$$

                          Did you have to brace the E30 chassis as well, or do the convertible sills offer enough stiffness?

                          Also....copper!


                          I fully endorse building an engine in a bedroom - looks so relaxed.

                            The convertible has enough bracing in the pan that it doesn't care. If it had been a coupe I probably would've braced it.

                                I need some opinions here guys. The fuel filler neck is on the other side on the E30. I need to decide what I am gonna with the filler neck on the body swap. I can A) add the E30 quarter panel gas door to the Amazon quarter panel (probably the easiest) B) relocate the fuel filler behind the passenger taillight (the hardest, but maybe coolest) C) put the filler in the pass side quarter, but use a different gas door (motorcycle or Moon style or something) D) relocate the filler inside the hatch somehow (will have to open the hatch to fill with gas).

                                Thoughts anyone?
