The bay is slowly coming along. Wheel wells finally looking respectable - previous owner had them raised by an 20mm/inch but the finish didnt look so good.

I feel like I saw this build a few years ago. I feel like the guy who built went by Gorilla on s14power.net. Is this the same car?

Yes, this is 'The Gorilla's' old car but I bought it as a rolling shell so am putting it together again but to my spec.

So I had some used carbon Ferrari Challenge seats from a 360 which were looking a bit worn so got them recovered. They only weight a touch over 5kg each with side mounts

Engine bay is coming along and is almost ready for primer. Spencer has been welding up some of the holes. Hes doing a great job and very particular - instead of just sheet metal he been using the original panels so they match up:





Probably not the most cost effective method but I decided to got the s54 manifolds ceramic coated by Zircotec to help manage under bonnet temps - they came out nice. I used this coating on my 650hp Mitsi Evo to great effect:

Spencer from BMP Conversions was able to do the final spray on the engine bay today. The purists probably wouldnt like this build given that we are hacking up a M3 but at least I used a BMW paint code : )

Im very pleased with the end result
