About this blog

1974 2002 which was originally my father's high school car and has been in the family since. I officially took the car over when I was 21 and have been tinkering with it ever since. 

 

The past year I have spent rebuilding, replacing, and upgrading the entire suspension and brake system. I wish I started this thread then to show all the progress but better late than never.  

 

The direction I want to head with this car is definitely toward the “hot-rod” aspect. Not for purists, but I do enjoy the nostalgia

Just scored a set of dcoe 40s that I’ll be in the process of rebuilding and acquiring parts to fit them into the 74

Suspension & Brakes

I pulled the front and rear subframes, welded on reinforcement plates and adjustable rear camber and toe kit. Powder coated both subframes, put poly-urethane subframe mounts and bushings everywhere besides the motor mounts to avoid unwanted vibrations in the car.  Ground control coil over kit in front and adjustable spring mount in rear paired with bilstein sports.    “Big brake” 320i vented front discs with with Volvo girling calipers and rear 250mm 320i drums for ample stopping power. Stainless brake lines and Adams Autosport cunifer hardlines. All hidden behind a set of BBS rs001s freshly powder coated and polished.    Stock engine other than a set of IE street headers and stainless exhaust. But that’s next on the list....
