    Finally stopped being lazy and got the camber arms in. Adjusted one side roughly to get to how I want it to sit and ran into an issue.

    Added some camber to get the wheel to tuck in and the barrel hit the coilover as I suspected. I already I have a 20 mm spacer on so I'm gonna try and see if a 5 mm spacer will do the trick. If not i'm going to get an inch smaller barrels since one barrel is already cracked anyways.

    In other news, I picked up a MINT original set of OZ futuras for a super steal. I'm not too crazy about them and I basically already have the same wheels so I'll most likely end up trading them or selling if they come down to it. Considered keeping them for my e30 but they're not the kinda wheels I want for it.

    You could get a longer bolt and put a spacer between the trailing arm and the shock, if you need a little more room inwards. Just be sure you get a strong bolt and a thick spacer

    Camber totally ruins this one for me, unless this one is being built for a feature like your R32

    Think the rear camber looks a bit naff on standard wheels but when the Fittipaldis are fitted and the arches are filled it'll look great, Alphards are great <3

    After putting it off for a while I finally decided to start my fog light delete for my front bumper. Started with some plastic weld then filled it up with bondo.

    Filled it up as level as I could then started sanding.

    Just need to sand a little more, fill a little more, sand again and make sure the lines are good then it should be done.

    Also threw the Alphards on. I know the paint is hideous but I got most of it off.

    Love the wheels but mot really a fan of how they look on the car. 18's look super big and bulky to me. Might end up selling them and getting a set of 17 inch OZ's or something.

    FINALLY after months of searching I got my hands on a set of brand new in box Lucid InPro's. Waiting until the car is done and painted to throw them on cause I don't wanna mess them up lol

    Making a little progress! Just threw some stuff together for a little teaser. Got the M3 rear bumper on (still needs work), fog light delete is 95% done, m3 skirt on with extensions, dtm/acs style mirrors and just pieced together my "taifun" style headlight conversion to see how it would look. Ready for it to be done so I can drive it

    Minor update

    I haven't done too much to the e36 tbh. All I did was finish up the fog light deletes and start the fiberglass work for the sideskirt add ons. In other news I picked up a car I've been searching for for YEARS. And it's Yellow A thread will be made for it once I start working

    Although it doesn't look like it, I've been grinding on the 36 lately! Been trying my best to get the body work and suspension sorted out, as well as finding parts to finish the build. Finally got around to throwing the offset RTAB's on, short shifter, oem dakar m3 rear bumper and some other small things. The passenger fender is baconed and the nose panel is in bad shape so I sourced some OEM silver ones.

    Most recently I picked up a set of 1 series m sport wheels (Style 261M) to roll on so I can get it painted. Also got the OZ's (for the 36) and Meisters (for the evo) back from powdercoat and they came out amazing. Will be dropping the car off for body work tomorrow then after that I should be dropping it off for paint later in the week!

    I finally dropped the e36 off for paint a couple weeks ago. I went to pick it up and wasn't happy with the work so they're redoing it again. Should hopefully have it back next week or the week after at the latest.

    In other news I finally started working on the 325ix. Got the head off and machined and picked it up yesterday, and gonna throw it back on over the weekend and hopefully have it running and driving in the next few days.

    And the best news of all, I picked up my holy grail and replacement for the ix. RHD Atlantis Blue E30. It's a 316 but I have a 328 parts car I'm gonna swap the drivetrain and 5 lug/brakes from. Been talking about getting it for months and finally pulled the trigger on it. Literally the cleanest E30 I've ever seen. You can damn near eat off of it.

    Finally a good update! So I dropped the car off for paint over a month ago and the first paint job didn't turn out well. They just got done taking care of ALL the bodywork (rust, dents, etc) and I got these pictures of it today. Gonna go check it out later to confirm everything is good, then they should be painting the car either tomorrow or Wednesday. I've been wanting to get the car back for so long and I'm just glad it's actually about to be done and I can get it back and finish it.

    Finally got the car back from paint! There's a lot of work ahead of me; especially the interior. But right now my main focus is getting the exterior perfect so she at least looks nice from the outside. More updates coming soon.
