If im perfectly honest i would have preferred to have done all the little fiddly bits such as wiring, pipework (brakes and fuel) 1st BUT i need it rolling so i can move it about as when its dead in the garage it makes doing other jobs to make a bit of cash on the side harder when doin outside and since its comin to winter i need it rolling and all sealed up etc with windows and doors if that makes sense.

Right managed to get the brakes bolted on the hubs tonight, they are the std E36 M3 items due to funding constraints so i will try these out 1st and if im not happy once the car is up and running i will look at up-grading to 4 or 6 pot etc's

I have up-graded slightly from using std disc's and pads though they are EBC Turbo Groove Disc's all Round with Feroddo DS3000 Pads up Front and EBC Yellow Stuff Pads at the rear. Ive kept the std handbrake shoes setup within the rear discs to comply with MOT and RACMSA regs that all cars, rally cars are to have a mechanical handbrake etc

Nice progress, clean and painted part fitting = visually pleasing :)

Looks like you're replacing a lot of nut and bolts too.
I'm not impressed with the quality of the bolts on newer B-M's they seem to rust too easy due to inadequate plating.

Im trying my damndest to replace every nut and bolt as i go BUT there are various specialist BMW bolts like the ones that are at the top of the front stub axle where the strut mounts which is a sleeved bolt i would imagine would cost a fortune from BMW so i have just given them a wire brush on the grinder to get the surface rust off and re-fitted them but i like fitting new bolts with plenty of copper grease so they are nice and easy to strip down again for servicing etc !!!!!

Can you tell me where the body panels were bought from? I'm after a set for a coupe. Thanks

The fibreglass body panels were bought from Harry Hockley Motorsport down in Newtown Mid Wales

http://www.hh-ms.com/

Not sure this helps bud as i know they only do this body kit for the E36 Compact and not sure wether any of it would fit a Coupe or Saloon model though.

I know its been a while since my last up date due to Budget constraints PMSL !!!!!!

But here shows the Hyd Handbrake all mounted and the Tilton Bias Valve with pipework to the rear fitted and in place.

Image

And here's the Odessey Racing Battery (Varley Red Top 30) in place in its Alloy tray etc

Image

And here is a picture showing the Fuel Swirl Pot, Bosch 044 Fuel Pump and Fuel Filter in situ, ive just gotta box / firewall it all off and add a suitable drain hole just in case of any leaks.

Image

Here's the air filter all fitted and connected with the bracket to the inner wing. The position its fitted in will allow a 4" duct from a hole in the front front bumper to be placed through the hole in the inner wing right behind the head lamp to supply ample amounts of cold air to the under side of the filter.

Image

New M3 Radiator in place with a 16" Spal fan and the mounting brackets etc should keep her all nice and cool.

Image

Just made this tonight, a false floor in the drivers foot well to make it level, just need to stick the anti slip material have on top of it etc.

Image

And finally a quick picture from the rear showing the rear bumper, lights and No Plate in situ just show what she gonna look like when she over takes you PMSL !!!!!!!!!!

Yeah it will all be boxed / firewalled off mate with a sealed un-boltable lid for access and a drain hole etc, it was just easy to mount everything 1st and then make the box to suit after etc.
