    Another boring update.

    Cage padding added, which parts will be removed since I needed to go to a 6 point...which sucks cuz I am missing the local race but still have 2 more to finish out the year. It was a 250$ gamble to have the cage section in time and without it, I had no class to really run in so oh well. I was dumb and waited far too long.

    Also, made this cool new arm rest. Used one of the quick release mounts from my jeep which I am kinda glad I saved.

    Next. After waited what seemed like forever, which is more around 7-8 weeks I think after being told these would ship in 2 . I got my over fenders from Acetech.co I think is the name now. 40mm front and 50mm rear. Not really sure if I will even run them but thats my fall/winter project. The real issue is cheap/wide wheels that will fit properly. I have no idea where to begin to look. Hard to get rid of my current wheels since they only weight 17 lb each.

    Cheap, wide wheels you say?! Cosmis!

    But really, the Enkei and Konig have been killing it lately with light, strong, affordable wheels.

    I will look into those again, Just hard to find something with the proper offset to run with the flares. Another big decision is 17 vs 18s.

    Looks like most of the cosmis that are wide are only in 5x114 tho

    Have to do some offroading to get to the back of my house where my garage is, so why not stop for a pic and confuse my neighbors.

    firstly....

    e36 needs 17s. best wheel to run in terms of sizes. 17 with a chunky tyre for track/fast set ups. 17s with skinny tyres for stance boy life.

    18s are a no.

    also if you can only find wheels in a 5x114.3 fitment just ask for adaptors i can make you some 15mm ones if need be. or wider if wanted.

    I am switching directions in what I will run, might end up with an 18 but I know what fits the hard motorsport flares. My friend running a LS3 4 door on the hill has the flares, running 18x10 et25 w/ 285/30 slicks. Still rather stick with 17s tho.

    I love the 18's on my car but for serious track use it seems like 17's would be a better idea

    Test fit one side of the cage last night since I was alone and didnt really wanna pull the driver seat and floor pan. It fits well, and no the door bars wont be together like that. That is the angle they should be at however and will end up 7" apart per rules. I wouldnt mind adding in some extra tubing if I get a change to get a notcher and some spare tube in time.

    While waiting for my friend to get to my house, I was bored and made a new logo for the car. Gonna run my work logo since its my family business. Prolly end up taking it off soon, but hey I think it looks kinda cool.

    When he showed up we went about test fitting the cage again, pulling the headliner due to welding (its not going back in) and then welded up the whole thing. I have a few little spots to hit tonight and clean up, then I can paint the whole thing and throw the seats and floor pans back in.

    Also, depending on funds this winter...I will prolly be going with this guys wheel/tire/flare setup (or order new flares) but still the wheels have brand new slicks so I need to talk about pricing once he is done racing. 285/30 slicks on 18x10 Enkei NT03+M. He is going 18x12 with stupid wide flares to handle the power he is putting down.
