    it was decided to make a radically low car

    This is so cool. I love the way you think. Nice engine bay!

    I drive an e28 (almost the same as e12) and even on air it won't get low in the front.
    I always thought about doing the same thing you do now but don't have skills for it.

    Keep going!!

    Great build! For some reason your garage looks familiar, do you also have a GAZ Volga 24?
