Thank you.

Here is a engine pic. Radiator was a second hand one we used for mock up. A new radiator has been fitted.

We also need to setup the suspension, fit the front splitter, paint the doors and fit the windows, and finish all the little bits and pieces which you could probably make out from the following pics:

Car feels so much better than my e36 already though. It really sits through corners and picks up speed quickly. Its a little unfair to compare though as this car has better everything compared to the e36 which was a bit of a back yard build scraping bits together.

So far we are on track for our first race next weekend at Zwartkops. (26th,27th and 28th)

PS.
There are two short videos on my facebook page also if you would like to see them.

Nice one Brucie..about that rear view mirror..omg waiting

Thank you.

I had the car branded. Decided to go for a basic wrap. What do you think?

Wheel spacers are off in this pic so its not sitting correctly.

RE: E46 3.2 M3 Wide Body Project
Now that is a race car. I honestly wasn't a fan of the wide body kit until you painted it. WOW. Such a big difference.

Nice job.
