    Those are pretty interesting, never seen the before. They're 17" right?

    Yeah man they are 17s dude.

    Ok so round two. Well round two part 1.



    Started these today, burnt the old bushes out then pushed them out.



    And then sanded them down and managed to get some primer laid down

    Then the Mrs came out and dragged me back inside.

    Will lay down another few coats of paint tomorrow and push the powerflex bushes in.

    That's another small piece of the puzzle done

    So cleaned them up and gave them some paint, I was going to do them black but I didn't have any at home but I found some old wheel paint so silver they went



    And these were a bastard to get in

    And the rear anti roll bar. This is from an m3 evo to match the one on the front. This is bigger than the standard ones.
    And of course powerflex bushes everywhere



    I then managed to get the other cradle off the subframe. Was a proper bitch. And I also got the final bushes out. Therefore it's ready to go get blasted and then



    So the place that is doing my rear subframe actually specialise in wheels. So they are getting the equips. They are going to powdercoat the centres. Barrels, polish up the lips to make them all look sparkling, build and seal the wheels and then the car is very nearly ready to be back on the floor and potentially use!

    Little bit more progress today.
    I am fitting e46 320 rear brakes onto the e36 as they are good brakes, cheap to buy and run a decent 295mm size disk which will look good in comparison with the front 330 brakes. They also use the same handbrake cable etc so won't have to change that.

    So picked some callipers up for a decent price. Although they were in a bad state



    Gave them a clean up (my hands hurt)



    This was mid clean up they came up a lot nicer than that I just gave up on taking photos

    And then some paint. BlCk of course to match the fronts



    And then for some reason I decided to spend a while polishing some bolts that you will never see ��



    Some brass spacers and other bits and bobs along with some braided brake lines

    Finished putting together the rear brake callipers



    Rear discs turned up too



    Because I went from a 4 pott to a 6 pott I am going to need to run the battery cable to the rear so had to buy



    I also fitted a 328 fuel pump but it looked identical to the old one I removed, but that's in now anyway.

    Also dropped the equips off the get refinished and built. Can not bloody wait to see these. I will have them back in a week but when I get updated progress photos of them I will surely share them on here with you guys



    Oh and I got another bush as I forgot the diff bush.

    Cheers bro, here are some more. I haven't yet picked them up as I haven't had he time!!





    I am going to try and head over to get them tomorrow and then spend some time sorting the little bits out on the car.

    I am still waiting for the rear subframe to come bck from powder, the person who is doing it has just stopped responding to me asking if it's done yet. Pretty annoying

    As soon as I have that back I can put all the new bushings in, remove the old and fit the new subframe and fit all the rear suspension and brakes etc.

    Then wheels on!!

    So I went back over my lights as I wasn't happy with them. Some parts looked corroded and was allot more obvious when the shrouds went in. So out came the paint.









    Looks a little better. Just one of them things.

    Still waiting on the subframe but all in good time and I can get it on the floor!

    So photobucket is trying to fuck me and charge me $399 to use my photos. Not sure why. Bastards.

    Does anyone have any other picture hosting sites they use?

    I may have to make a new thread using this new picture hosting site as I couldn't go through and edit all of them on here.

    Any recomendations??

    Sadly, i think a mod will need to delete this thread.

    i will start a new one and try and figure out a new photo sharing site.

    RIP original thread.
