I about 2 months away from being able to do this.

I have the V8 and 6 spd in my garage, and have a test e30 M3 chassis (wrecked and not usable) for initial fitting and fabrication. I am still collecting the other bits.

NOTE: I am searching for a good e30 chassis for the final product. I want a non-rusty and straight chassis that does not have PW or PDL, or if possible a sunroof. Maybe an early 318i (1984?). I will install the quarters, rear window assembly and front fenders with rockers on this car. Yes it is alot of work, but I could not bring myself to tearing/cutting up a nice original e30 M3 for the V8 install.

In October, I am going to do a motor install test run on the existing wrecked e30 chassis that I am currrently parting out, but I need to sell the existing M3 motor.

I will create a website for progress, but am waiting for my new PC to arrive.

Sorry for all the delays, most are not in my control. I have taken a ton of pictures and will continue to do so through out the project.

Wish me luck.
