Default disapr e46m track build



This is a project that I started 10 months ago. Now that the project is mostly complete, I thought I'd share some photos of the process.

First, I'd like to thank my sponsors:

My wife - For being supportive of the project, spending entire weekends working on the car with me & taking/editing the final photos.

Flavius (M3roar) at Morar Industries - For expertly CNC machining all of the one-off parts & tools that I designed for this build.

And then ME, because I did everything else

Also, thanks to: Daniel Macfadden@Momentum BMW & Adam@Hard Motorsport

Dang it, where's my e46m at!?! I need my project to start already!!!

This is one of the coolest things I've gotten to be apart of. Definitely plan to research and design more race parts with you in the future.

Sweet jesus, that's incredible.

What a great job you've done. I love the attention to detail, and the fact that most of it was done in your home garage. Very inspirational!
