Default Re: Building an E30 M3 gravel rally car :-)

The chassis is fully repaired.

After working on getting all of the new panels mocked up and in place, we got help from a local body shop to put the chassis on their frame rack and straightened before we welded everything into place. The whole car was twisted slightly, so it was quite a bit of work to get everything lined back up, but we're good to go now. The body shop also finished welding all of the new panels in place for us.

You'll notice there is still a hole in the firewall, but that will be patched once we have the front suspension tied into the cage.

The car goes to TC Design Motorsport for the cage and some other custom fabrication work in less than 2 weeks. It's been a long road to get the car to this place, but the assembly should go quickly from here.

More to come...
