The rear has a metric ton of toe. Camber wise the rear seems like it is 3 or 4 degrees.

I found a set of latches in decent shape and cleaned them up as best as I could.




Now I can finish assembling the drivers side door. The passenger side needs to be resprayed so it will probably stay apart this far.

I removed the clips from my old inner window seal and installed them on the new one as they are NLA





Installed the door card next. Really happy with how it came together. I just need to find my mirror switch and order new mirror covers.



I also got a blower motor cover and removed the insulation. I will be smoothing it out and modifying it a bit as well.

Finally had my new bumper trim so I threw it on to get an idea of how the rear will look when "finished"

I've been meaning to update this but photobucket is blocked at work.

I had a blockoff plate cut at work to fill the hole in the trunk from the spare tire (Don't mind the missing nut. The spare mechanism used to have a push pin in that spot. I have since ordered and installed a new nut, as well as siliconed the plate in place.)


I recleaned the floor boards and removed the handbrake. The car lays frame when aired out and the whole system ( besides the handle itself) was missing from the car ever since I bought it. I will make a blockoff plate for the console until I can make a locking hydraulic handbrake that appears original



Next up I ended up deciding what radiator I would run. I opted for the e36 radiator made by CSF. It will require some measuring to see what hoses work and such. The radiator is gorgeous and the quality is amazing.


I picked up some super rad Reboot Engineering radiator stays to rid of the flimsy, tricky, and ugly OE stays.


I also picked up new rubber isolators and 6 cylinder radiator brackets from the dealer.


Today I threw it in the car to mock it up and have it in place to extend the aux fan temp switch wiring perfectly.







I also finally found the part number for the rear splash guard nuts and threw them on temporarily.


The last thing I have been working on is finding horns that sound good and aren't obnoxious. Everyone seems to use Hella Supertones and I just hate the sound of them. I opted for Hella Sharptones. Unfortunately they're ugly as sin when you buy them but I fixed that quickly.





I was told that the hardware is garbage and corrodes quickly so the obvious choice was to replace them with stainless socket head hardware.

That brings us up to speed. I have a package enroute from Germany and some other little things here and there, so updates should be coming more frequently=)

That's not even funny!!

Photobucket is a pain, I haven't gotten the third party icon for my pics so far but I think its because I haven't signed in since the update, and as a result haven't accept their new "user policy"??

I just created a imgur account and started using that instead. What a pain.
