Alpina, Getrag and subframe together at last!

Today was a really big big day.

 

I assembled the transmission and engine together.  Then I pulled the subframe and mounted the engine on the subframe.  

 

I am going with the bottom up install.  I did the lower the engine in method last time and I really hated it.  This was so so much easier.  Fully dressed motor ready to be lifted in!

 

Beautiful motor.  Love it!

Had to get the wiring harness in so the headliner could go in.  Put the rear lights on with the squar'y chrome strip.  Very pleased.

 

More polishing tomorrow.  Then I can put the flares back on and get them out of my living room because that is where  '02 parts belong when not on the car :)

Fun getting these through the firewall again.  Mensch!

Painless classic wire covering.  Bit of work but way worth it!

Just because it is awesome...  I did clean up the rims today so I guess that counts.
