so since i have an S14 in my 2002 and the engines are getting harder to find,  i picked up another one this week!

 

and it came in an interesting shipping container......

 

 

 

a Henna E30 M3 .

 

 

straight to the shop to start the dismantling..

easy!  the dismantling was only for a full detail.  Jim G showed up today with his full detailing kit and we went to town on the car.   the car had been sitting for a while and needed some TLC inside and out. degreased and pressure wash engine compt and underside.  then took the interior apart.

after a full day of cleaning, car looks much better.  now i can start on the mechanical refresh.  my summer project.

 

unlike this car's garage mates, goal is to keep it as stock as possible.  this car has all orginal paint and largely untouched mechanicals.

Wow.  Damn nice find Marshall.  I'm jealous!

 

Actually - I'm not sure what I am more jealous of - the E30 M3 or all the space you have to work?

 

Probably both.

Ah, well-used, but not quite frequently enough in the past, then!

Yes! 

 

Is this Henna or Zinno? I can't tell because of the lighting.

 

I'm actively hunting an e30 m3 as we speak. Hoping I can secure it this week. 

 

 

Love what you've done with the place. Almost makes me want to get a real job and reassess my priorities in life. Almost.
