    Default Another damn e36

    xGot this e36 a while back, it was setup pretty weird to start with. It was lifted on 17x9 square g6 wheels with huge adaptors, some of the worst fender work I have ever seen and some goofy ass wanna be "camo" vinyl chunks.



    And by far the coolest part of the car Penta-pug which lead to the name of the car: Pugsly

    Ran it like that for a bit and gathered parts, scored some decent stlye 42 wheels from the junk yard I worked at for a while along with some non blown coilovers for the front along with a few other small things. As soon as the winter weather stopped being an asshole I threw the new parts on and started lowering the car


    Decided that I couldnt deal with the "camo" any more so we pealed it off and found a lot more damage than what I thought was there but we have ways of fixing that


    Front lip came in so I threw it on


    I have flares that should be here from Musk Customs in the next couple days, a 3.73 to weld up and throw in and then its time to lower the rear to match because having this much rake kills me. I need to find some nice stiff 5" long springs to pair with some custom rear shocks I scored. I will post up more pics as parts come in.

    Man that truly is the worst fender work I've ever seen, some people should just be kept away from cars.
    Nice that you're taking care of it now, it's already 200% better

    Yeah, I feel like I have improved the car a good bit. Cant wait to cut the shitty fender work off and get the flares on

    Good job fixing that thing up! That's hardly any rake. Since the rear fender radius is smaller than the front it will look like you have reverse rake if the back is lowered any more and the front stays were it is. Just my two cents tho. Look forward to seeing the flares.

    The flares will move the "lip" of the fender up a good bit it looks like but we will see. Need to get new wheels ordered once someone buys the 42's so I can really get the car sitting right

    This literally looks like how mine used to when you put the 42's on, minus you know, the fenders.

    Got my Musk Customs flares put on over the weekend, I need my rear camber arms and front LCA's along with better wheels but it looks a ton better than the rusty metal that was there




    I also brought the rear fender lip up about an inch and a half so I can level out the ride height here soon. More updates to come soon as my 3.73 diff is at the shop getting welded now for some sick skids

    "Musk Customs flares"...You brought them from Poland lol.
    If I'm right - Musk a few years ago had an episode in the evening TV news.
    They showed how he "drifted" at night around the Warsaw city. After this event, people started talking about him.

    Keep the good work btw
