Trying to do all the work on the car myself because I like doing it but after working on it this weekend my hands hurt! If I can fabricate something and save some money even better. A friend is helping me with the sun roof filler panel.

Picking up modified headers from EFab Motorsports today. Taken off from work this week to finish racecar. Got a couple of Big boxes from Turner Motorsport and some cool swag! Going to be a busy week!

Finished installing the Magnaflow SpecE46 exhaust and E36 header modified by EFab Motorsports. Nice fit, easy to install.

Almost finished with the interior. Still have sunroof filler to finish. AKG Motorsports shifter looks good even though I covered up the nice looking base plate.

Hey Bill...I have qq about the ebay mirrors.I just got a pair, but for some reason it doesn't look like I can use the existing hardware to attach. Did you use longer self tappers or something?

It's hell getting old. Have to bag and tag every part and screw so I can remember what goes where when I start putting it back together.

Keep up the great work Bill!

I used 1 1/4" #10 screws with trim washers for the mirrors. Worked great.

Made my own fiberglass sunroof delete panel with the help of a friend. If anyone is interested in making there own let me know. I would be more than happy to lend you the mold. Total cost less than $100!

Heated up the garage so I could put a bead of RTV around the sunroof filler.
