I just bought an 04 pheonix yellow the other day, I think Kenton is still driving around with one of my axle's unless he upgraded.

I realize most item's on your build will be aftermarket but just in case.

Curt

Looking forward to this.
Awesome, I appreciate it! I'll let you know if I wind up needing anything!

To those who asked for a picture of said driveway.



I'm pretty sure Kalim and any other local supports have now said.. screw that youre on your own.

Btw, Marcus, if you're looking for a head, I have one sitting around. #6 needs some work (broken rod = bent valve), but I think it's usable.

I'd kill for a driveway and garage like that lol...shame some don't appreciate what they have....lol j/k. My garage is now a stupid extension to a dining room..what a waste, considering I would use a garage everyday and the dining room is never used.

Its not bad Marcus, I know people who work on their cars in train station parking lots.

Then rebuild the motor in the dining room? Lulz.

Almost all the work (bolt ons, so nothing insane,mind you) that I did to my E46 was done in the student parking lot of my college. Lots of "field expidient" fixes and questionable approaches to installations. I keep telling my fiance that when we get a house, she can have whatever she wants for the inside, as long as we get a three car garage with a high enough ceiling for a lift.

Good luck with the build Marcus/Trevor, can't wait to see what the turnout will be. Hopefully I'll be able to make MFest next year and see the showdown in person.

Kalims driveway and garage is way better than mine!

The right side of the garage is meticulous the left side is a disaster because I share it with the people who live I our guest house. They're pool contractors.

I will clean it up.

I'll likely be using solid valves and aftermarket springs. I'll let you know if the donor I find doesn't have a engine.

Sounds good. Just holler if you need parts. I've got another E46-worth of parts stuffed in that garage.

You "think" that will be enough space, but as you'll eventually see....it's not.

I can park 6 vehicles in my shop space.....or 1 project car. We have a garage for the house as well....


Marcus,

You are going to need more space.

Marcus,

It's an exercise in patience using my home garage "2-car" garage for projects, but it can be done.
Agreed, though, the more space, the better.
