    Ground Control coilovers are on the way. The rear will stay the same height, but have a stiffer spring, and the front will be down about 2"

    And finally some proper photos.















    Then did a little test fit of the BBS air dam. I think I'm going to roll with it. It'll eventually get painted and a front euro bumper added.

    It sure will. I had my first 320i for a couple years. And that was a common car, with crappy cloth seats, and an auto. This car is pretty close to a short list of everything I want in an E21.

    Ha!

    Here's a little pshop mock up of what I'm going to do. Somethings may change a little, but this is the basic idea.

    Suspension fun called on the count of rain, and no free garage space to work in. Waiting on a break. For the E21 suspension, and the E28 clutch job.

    I had to test out some new camera gear. So I chose to do it by wheel whoring a bit.

    So that video has more views in 2 days than anything I've put out before (for myself). And landed me a paying video gig. Bonus!

    I sent this off to BBS USA, and actually got a response! They probably wont do anything but pass it around the office, but that's good enough.

    That's pretty cool that they acknowledged it. Maybe they'll at least send you a sticker or something.

    Amazing things happen in my absence! Waw!

    Thanks lady!

    I stripped down my BBS spoiler to ready it for paint.



    And, for those that are interested; this stuff works wonderfully.


    After spraying it with this stuff, then waiting for it to dry, the paint just flaked away. There were some stubborn spots that I had to scrape away. But so much easier than sanding.

    I primered the spoiler


    Ditched the cloth rear seat and put in a super clean vinyl one


    And put on a new shift knob and boot. And also cleaned and conditioned the Italvolanti.


    Tomorrow should include putting on the coilovers, painting the spoiler, and cleaning and mounting the RMs. just in time for The Old School Reunion.

    That at the cat?

    Yes sir. The flow is from left to right in that picture, with the open pipe coming straight from a performance header. Needless to say, it is bone-jarringly, ear-bleedingly loud.

    Dosen't look rusty, did you hit it on some thing?

  24. #199
    Nope. Just a really shitty weld. I'm ordering a full mandrel bent exhaust built buy an enthusiast who races E21s. It's going to be much, much, much better. Because not only is the exhaust I have made poorly, it was just bad idea, on top of bad idea. It goes from a very nice header, into crush bent pipe to a generic welded in cat, to more crush pipe, to a cherry bomb as a resonator, to more crush bend pipe, to a generic turbo muffler, and then out through a single exit with a chrome split tip. It's absolutely terrible sounding.

    Have any sound clips of the new exhaust system?
