A few days ago a friend of mine brought up this 2002 as the owner lives nearby where we used to work and we used to see it all the time. I mentioned to him that the car was under the knife and would look completely different the next time he saw it. Coincidentally updated his photo bucket with progress pictures of the build and since the last time I mentioned it here are some of the updated shots.
In addition to the new wheels, wider fenders, and m20 swap the car is also receiving the TLC necessary for a 70s car that has spent its entire life in Canada. The rockers and spare tire tub have already been replaced and any and all rust is being removed as work continues.
All of the work is being done by M-tricks autosports and this car should be ready in time for next summer.
WOW, im not a BMW guy, but that’s looking real good.
Really like how the fenders are coming and I like the wheels, but can’t tell what they are.
I wonder what color it’s going to be this time around… M colors again?
This is gonna be baaaad ass. My best friend in high school in the late 80s rocked a 2002, one of the first cars that got me hooked on old school import stuff rather than “super cars”.
Yes this build should be very, very badass.
ask ricky for new pics. its in final primer ,with a satin black sealer awaiting final block sand and paint!!
Have you seen this post? http://www.stanceiseverything.com/2010/01/double-build-update/ has the car been updated more since this point?
