If the shell is past it before you start you are wasting your time and money. All that extra load going back into the shell will ruin the handling as all the suspension mounting points will be flexing. Guess why touring car teams sell cars after a season. They look great, but the shells are shagged......

Do it properly. Strip it, dip it and repair it. Then paint, add your suspension, drop in the motor and start whooping people at the track in your super lightweight M3. (I really wan't a white one........)


im gutting it for strictly auto-x use, and who knows if I really get into it i'll get it on the track. oh if anyone needs anything off it, if i don't need it for racing, its for sale. the thing is a real beast, it has rust all over. Im gunna bondo the thing up and then paint it myself.
I was thinking of fixing it up, but the car is just to far gone
