Hello new to the forum thought I would post up my track car build. Been looking into BMWs as they seem to be going cheap and a popular track car I desided to go for the e36 as the e30s are going for silly money at the mo.
Ended up winning this one on ebay for a whopping £122
Its a 318is the only thing im dissapointed with is its got a sun roof, Ive started stripping the interior out of it the engine and box is comming out of it tomorrow. The plan for this is to make a race prepped car for the track and drifting im looking at doing the following to it over the next few months
Install an rb25 skyline engine and box or poss a 1JZ looking for around 500reliable bhp
Remove the glass and make a lexan set
Install a fully tig welded CDS rollcage
install a set of FIA approved seats with 4 point harnesses
m3 evo disks with a brembo 4 pot caliper conversion on the front poss the rear too
coil over suspension
I want to make and do as much of this my self as im a welder and fabricator by trade any tips on this project would be great im only going by threads on here and google
