Default Me and Smdubovsky's BMW GTS2 Build

Until I get a dedicated page setup, Ill link you to my Facebook gallery.

I found this gem on Bimmerforums. A drunk driver hit his car and smashed into the driver corner of the car. Obliterating the wheel and pretty much making it undriveable. I went up last Sat and drove through the night to go get it. Great deal on it. It's been less than a week and we have already replaced the control arm, tie rod, and associated parts. Today we (mainly Stephen) drilled out the spot welds to the corner and bent the metal back to shape. He will reweld later.

I prepped the new body panels for paint tomorrow. Slapped on a wheel and even went for a test drive tonight up and down the street!

Enjoy: http://www.facebook.com/album.php?ai...1&l=3a348cb104

Can't open the link at work so more detail would be nice. Will this be your new ride?

96 E36 M3. Not Erics new ride, but ANOTHER ride So he can race both GTS2 & GTS3 (hes crazy like that). I'm going to race it some too. I don't miss SE30, but I haven't been getting to the track enough anymore plus it'll be a good excuse for me to keep my race license

Yes, it was VERY dark to be driving up the street w/o headlights...

Just need a new bumper now!

Need to fix the shifter, clutch and get alignment. Then hopefully shake the thing down at the TrackDaze DE in a week.
