Sorry haven't post for a while, we was so busy at the shop.

So after seeing all the body work and paint how bad is on this car, we decided to take it all the way to the metal!

Excellent work.

The work done prior is absolutely atrocious... and amusing. Who the hell does that!

So we modify the S54 oil pan and E30 M3 subframe. That allows us to bolt the engine in and retain the factory S54 oiling system. And we run e36 engine mount arms and 24v swap specific engine mounts for this.
And a big thanks to the Arc Asylum
