55. Third time's the charm

After two massive failures with E36 #1 and E36 #2, I've finally managed to buy a decent base car for my project. Well, It's a 316 body with a 318is engine. And, it's in a good condition. See for yourself:

Now you see it:

Now you don't:

We installed electric windows all-round:

Not many kilometers on the clock (for a BMW)... The engine has even less kilometers:


Finally, a picture of  the car:

Picture from the rear:

16" Rims that I bought a couple of days ago: (Style 45)

Hey, look at that - a spare wheel! :)

I like shiny things:

I bought the exhaust manifold a couple of days ago. Obviously, I plan to install a bigger engine :)

Just playing with the kill switch - I have to figure out where to put it... :
My last panel was kind of sloppy, and I don't want anything sloppy in my car...

And, I started collecting tires...

So, this is it for now. I'm still working on my project as you can see. In the next month or two, I'll buy a M3 body kit and a lightweight hood and trunk :) So, stay tuned! :)


  1. Thank you. :)

    Well, the progress is slow at the moment (had to buy Christmas gifts, so my BMW fund was a little short this month.) Well, but, I did buy a few new toys... I'll post pics in a minute.
