    I pulled my m20 without leveler.. It was kinda a bitch to get in.. But it worked out....
    Take of the PS, AC, and ALT.. Don't try to pull it off with those on.. Maybe you can get away with the alt?
    I kept mine on.. Ya didn't want to come out.. Who would of guessed? Lol.

      Barrowing this 2 ton leveler from work. Should do the trick. Going to cut the front end off I think as well.. Haha. Maybe hang it off the wall or something.

        Front euro conversion halfway done...sorta. Ran into a snag. Putting my painted euro front valance on and realized I was missing number 7 in this diagram (which, ironically, seems to not have a part number and don't even know the proper name for it.)

        HELP!!! I hate the look of the NA front valance with the euro bumper :(

          is #7 the clip? or that entire piece that goes across the front of the car and the wiring runs along the back side?

            #7 is the panel that runs across the front, the piece that the grills mount to.

            Edit: er, maybe not...it's really hard to say. My valance has screw holes at the top where a nose panel would attach to. It looks like the valance in the RealOEM diagram is all one piece, though. It almost looks like #7 should be a clip, but there isn't even a description for #7 so IDK? Ugh.

            Double edit: thanks to Wishno, it looks like this one is for an '84/'85, which are different than the late ones. Son of a bitch. Anyone want a really early euro valance?

                          Good to go in the AM. The bronze E30 just got finished up so this weekend if all goes as planned I'll have pulled two engines.

                              So I washed, clay bar'd, washed, did a fine cut, and washed again. She is coming back to life.

                              On a side note. I'm looming for a phone. I'm done with the iPhone, and need something with great picture capabilities. What's out there?
