air bag deployed i see, not hard to fix. last time i seen one do that we just took it out re sewn a piece of leather where it torn and cut a piece of foam to fit where the airbag was since it was too expensive to replace.

Yea thats all Im doing, I cant use the airbag anyways the wiring is differetn than the 08.

You're gonna do the rear seat back swap so you can put the rears in your car too right?!?!?

Rear officially wont fit, if they were four inches(two on each side) wider they would with out the side bolsters, Or if they were 6 inches (3 on each side) shorter they would with the side bolsters.

The gap goes all the way to the trunk so no go. But I have something up my sleve...

So my engine cover has been created.

Its an E36 engine cover with some work.

But now it is off to get painted gloss black, and where the stripes/BMW are on each piece is going a piece of polished steel

What you think?

Might seem like a lot of work, but. Why not route out the bmw then have the material cut to fit so the lines continue?

Not alot of work its bout done, we already have the steel cut it just goes right on top covering all of thos lines, once painted we will bolt it on with two really nice bolts that hold on the cover.

Trying to remove the bmw would be im possible, its is a part of the plastic, as in u flip over the cover you can see BMW

Ok so I hate my fucking stupid car. YHUP


But lets continue the shit show that is my build...


Pretty much done pictures to the public till its done, cause Im coming into the final ish stages.

But I will do written updates...

So Passenger Recaro is all fixed up for free looks perfect.

Driving up to Maine to grab the rear disc conversion for Justin on Wed. when I do that Im getting the caliper mounting bracket and switching it with the one I have because mine is apprently for a ST not SVT which is the Rotors I bought and had redrilled...

The rotors were not redrilled correctly so I had to get the holes expanded -_-

Engine cover is painted and installed, mirrors are painted and installed, lower front grill painted and installed, two bar grill repainted including the mesh part.

FSWERKS cold air intake is installed

New black steering wheel purchased and on its way, same with the ebrake cable for the rear brakes

New carpet will be ordered next friday

Coilovers should be here this week


Been trying to get toe adjusters and also new headlights but neither of the two people Im trying to buy each of those from are responding to me anymore :/

been trying to find cheap 5x100 wheels to run till blades are ready but nothing yet....

2.5 blades are at a mirror finish still working on the others...Taking bout 10-14 hours each :/

There is prob more but i cant think
