John beat me to it. Off the shelf, shouldn't be too much trouble.

I wish! The 02 is the only recent pick up, the rest are just friends with good taste.

Kinda conflicted. I want to get it driveable to get me through a major engine service on the E30 and then who knows, maybe sell her on to someone with more resources for a restoration since it's so intact. But then again it has lots of appeal as a city car

Would like to get the E30 to the Vintage as well though. Needs a TBelt, Water Pump, and lots of little projects I've been putting off.

Finally found seats! I've been wanting to get back to full leather for a while. Interior should be sorted after I get the wheel rewrapped. SE's will be for sale.

Sooooo. Seats showed up. Basically charcoal grey. Going to have to dye them to match the interior. Getting those in with Massive's brackets, a new Jackie Ickx Momo and a Condor knob before The Vintage.

Achieved nothing I wanted to mechanically this winter. Would still really like to revise the ride height and alignment settings. Interior/Exterior shouldn't need much for a while.

Meh.

There are two vibrant resonators, no real mufflers yet. They're both straight through cans.

That same part works great to delete the stock rear bias valve. Remove valve, install tee, then use a 10mmx1.0 bubble flare male brake plug (e30 ABS masters all have them).

They also are good to have if you are running data acquisition in your race car. Instead of the plug on that tee, use a metric to SAE adapter and your pedal pressure sensor will thread right in.

3,000 mile rode trip for a car that is still awaiting an engine swap was just too risky for me lol. Feel free to message any questions you may have!

What'd you use as a base tune for your MS setup when you installed the ITBs? Did it just run on the provided M20 base map? Or did you start with something else?

I used Keith's basemap and roughed in the fuel for my drive to the dyno. Kept the timing conservative. Happy to send it along if you'd like.

Got a few accent pieces in today. Still trying to sort out my seat scenario in time for the Vintage Really liking the Condor shorty.
