  • The race car project

    Since I am going to start working on the race car tonight I thought I would start a thread...I'll post some pictures of it tonight. Right now we are going to get the body ready since it has been sitting around the shop for errrrr awhile....

    Details.
    1988 E30M3 Gutted like a dead fish:gotcha:
    Carbon/fiber parts...
    Hood
    Rear deck
    Side skirts
    Bumpers front and rear
    Doors
    Full cage mounted tied into front and rear shock towers.

    Painting it Dakarish yellow!

    Pictures later
    Gary Gray
    88 M3 Alpine white Track/race car (maybe a turbo in future)
    89 M3 ZinnerBot (restoration project)
    91 VW GTI 2.0 16V
    01 325it Daily Driver/part time track car, not stock

    If you can take it apart...you can make it faster...

        color

        Its too late..I already sprayed the bottom of the car shiny yellow...And painted all the subframes glossy black...

        I sprayed it yellow in 1999..It was the oly yellow E30M3 race car at the track for awhile

            Cca

            Originally built it in 1999 for BMW CCA club racing and SCCA, D mod/ GT2. Going to be a D mod car. I have to put the 2.5 race motor back together sitting on the engine stand.
