Tris-M3 = Even if its for a Compact E36 (which it is) would the Front Wings, Bonnet & Bumper not fit a Coupe E36 ?????

HSR 2.6 = Get the doors gaped and fitting right along with a set of steel doors and keep the GRP ones for sprints and hill climbs etc or just keep the steel ones in the Van so if anyone says anything at Srutrineering at an event just swap em over as only a couple of bolts LOL and dead easy to swap etc.

at would be some crack Dave, i'd have to buy a bigger van. Just an update on the engine, took all the caps off aprt from 1&6 tried to turn it over and it still would'nt turn over, as soon as i released no 1 it turned so i've deduced that the crack is goosed. Took the crank out and inspected the rods and they all look very good. At least the guy i bought it off was honest as it lloks like it had just been rebuilt, So a big decision now do i rebuild the engine first or start on the shell..... :roll: .........

I would defo replace the block as all blocks are in-line bored with main caps in place so chances are if the crank is bent it may have done something to the Main cap 1 area i know usually cast blocks crack or snap if they are under stress rather than slightly twist or bend but i would'nt take the chance with it mate.

Well after weeks of being a lazy bum i decided to go and make a start, so all the interior has now been stripped out and half of the wiring, i'd forgotton how much hassle there is in prepping a shell............

Are you not registering it first steve? alot more expensive and hassle to get the car registered as a rally car..

If you are though and need some E marked harnesses to get it through i have a set you can borrow.

Hello everyone, quick update, i've welded all the cage plates and the plate to hang the twin eared diff. All the front suspensions on, and the rear beam is all built up ready to go on( the one off the old car had bent in the accident)

I attacked the wiring the other night and made a right pigs ear of it so thats my mission for this week, finish wiring so i can put the dash back in, and then paint the inside..........
