My Ride: 03 Ti Silver M3
I got a few more details on the build from " bodycustom1" wife by email and added them to the story.

For Tech details, the coupe was hit in the right rear. Skip cut the car behind the B pillar. The sunroof was saved but the track was shortened. the rear window area was manufactured by Skip and the glass was cut by our local glass guy. The Colorado bed was shortened ( the width was good). The bed was "sleeved" to fit the vehicle. 18 gauge metal lines the inside of the bed and diamond plate was used for the floor.

Skip kept the entire drivetrain and chassis from the BMW. He also moved the BMW gas flap to the exterior of the Colorado bed. And the spare tire is in the same place. It wasn't moved.
