Assuming one had a 67 1600 with a hot 2 dellOrto 2 liter, dogleg 5 speed and quick steering box with damage to EVERY exterior panel (roof and decks included) but no rust...and you were considering a complete non-BMW rebody with a Devin body or equivalent...would anyone on this forum have useful links or would they all just yell at you? 

 

I have the car and have done equivalent work.

I know I can replace the front and rear panels, decklids and door with fiberglass, mount 4 fatso fenders and some big wheels and go "zumma, zumma" but I did that too and don't need another track car. 

 

Ideas? 

 

I think you'd end up with something like this:
