    Evening all, Im building this car for a friend of mine.
    It turned up with no bulkhead, the whole floor and tunnel cut out, rusty bent front end and a dirty gurt big bmw v8 engine to fit in there.
    its using bmw front suspension also.
    Il let the pics do the talking.

    This is how she looked when I got it so I cut the front end off which will be replaced with a tube frame front, got the crossmember modified to fit and got the engine mounted.[​IMG][/URL][/IMG][​IMG][/URL][/IMG][​IMG][/URL][/IMG][​IMG][/URL][/IMG][​IMG][/URL][/IMG][​IMG][/URL][/IMG]

    I reinforced the chassis legs and made some brackets which the bmw lolly pops mount to, i fitted them upside down with some spun down bolts so they locate nicely, fitted some modded hubs and started getting the suspension together.
    all the geometry looks good so far just need some longer coilovers and some 46 arms and should make for a good setup.

    Looks trick, there is nothing that can stop good fab skillz and you are here to prove it right. Looks like you will accommodate the BMW front setup just fine, how are things with the sus. geometry? Will follow, hope to see you driving again at coming Matsuri maybe?..
    Regards.
