Interior: Still in the works but original seats are long gone and it is currently wearing Recaro LS seats out of a 88 Golf GTI. The car has a brand new headliner made with the correct BMW vinyl, the rear deck is also new and has been covered in factory BMW vinyl. The car is currently sitting at my interior shop having a new carpet put into it in the correct BMW material as well so it will be fresh for the new owner. The weak parts of the interior are the door panels/dash/rear seat which are all original and showing their age.
I have spent about 15K in parts on this car in the last two months and roughly 250 hours on it. This car is for someone who values a solid chassis with money invested to where it counts, this is not "lipstick on a pig"- in fact it's the exact opposite. The car is fast and mechanically just about perfect. The car is FAST, handles great, and it stops on a dime and gives you change! I just did a 900 mile rally and I chased some seriously fast 911's without skipping a beat, the car lost no oil and I just performed the third oil change. Car now has 1100 miles since rebuild.
Here is a video I made of the engine bay prior to installing engine, more vids coming when I get a chance.
