My Ride: looks fast
nice car for a steal!! wish i could have found me a SETA but I was impatient. I ended up picking up an alpine white '86 325es with 111K original miles (then my odometer stopped working shortly after, haha). Still has potential but you already have the pistons you need...

I've been leaning toward just getting a metric mechanic engine when i get back from my deployment...

I was driving the H1's big brother today... the Humvee... off roading in the new mexico desert sure is fun in those.

Good luck with the build!!!

Installed/Redo the A/C on the e30. Replace the Compressor, Dryer, New Lines, Switches, O-Rings and Evap Valve. Put in about 5-6oz of PAG 46 and charged it up with r-134a. It blows cool in 100+ but I think I will need to tint my windows to help out with the UV/Heat Waves that comes in the car.

Slammed with FK Coilovers with new Control Arms, Bushings and more.


I still need to do the RTAB and Rear Subframe Bushing. I will get to that soon enough.

Gene (e30Bulldog) helping me doing prep work on the e30 for Paint JOB





Since, Gene and I are doing my Paint Job. We are doing it Panel at a time. But the Paint will be Ordered in Gallon so we dont have to mix it and will match everytime we spray

Front windshield isn't tinted and the sun was going down that direction it was taken.
