    I'm almost to the rear end rebuilt project. I've been focusing on getting my garage and basement workshop setup for all the future projects so all my spare time has been dedicated to that. Workbench the previous owner of my house left the skeleton of a workbench which, by my best guess, was built by the original owner in the 70s. pretty basic, and the top was completely warped and trashed. it was a good size, though, so i decided to modify it instead of start from scratch. before: after: for the work surface, I ripped 25 2x4s to 3" then laminated them together using all-thread rods to clamp and hold it together permanently. then I just hand planed and sanded the top nice and flat. on the front face, I added some tee-nuts on the back of the first 2x4 before the glue up so I have several holes for clamping/mounting tools, etc. (you can see them as pairs between the all-threads) i reused the drawers from a reclaimed walnut lawyer's desk and also added two shallow drawers. the tool-wall is just a 4x8 3/4" plywood sheet. the holders are a mix of custom-made plywood brackets, hanging screws, PVC, and magnetic strips. its hard to believe that up until this point I worked with all these tools out of tool bags, tool boxes, and bins.

    A purists nightmare - E46 drift build

    Update Finished pulling the dash out of the car after some conversations about the cage placement. Pulled the sunroof and then pulled all the wiring down to separate it. Only going to be running the done light wiring back up after the cage is done. Now that the tube is ordered it's time to really prep for the cage. Made what I like to call a "CAD" design for the front rocker boxes. Driver side. Passenger side And then I removed some of the rear panels that will be in the way of the rear boxes, not really sure what to call them. Kinda blew a hole where one of the welds were but easily fixable. And then I made up templates for the passenger box but called it quits for the weekend after this one. Still a rough design.

    Does this count? It turns out that downtown Chicago they uses multiple Hyundai Elantra hatchbacks(blue, white, grey), but getting a good image of one reflected in the windows of the big buildings proved to be harder than expected. https://www.google.com/maps/@41.8794584,-87.6279894,3a,16.1y,178.12h,87.5t/data=!3m6!1e1!3m4!1sR377cBQOiuswnaBN1n8jRw!2e0!7i16384!8i8192?hl=en&authuser=0

    Not bad for your first site! In your "What we do" and "Our work" section the photo swipe feels aggressive, almost made me dizzy. I also didn't have enough time to check out what you do in each photo! "Whether we are designing new assemblies in SolidWorks, 3D Printing parts, or Prototyping your ideas, we will get you what you need." Something about the "what we do" statement on your homepage was bugging me. I still can't pinpoint what it was, but that's my thought on it. Nice looking building! I always enjoy seeing other engineering / design / fabrication setups!

    1989 325i Project Thread

    These gauges took way more work and time than I thought they would. Mostly because the bracket fit like garbage once the two screws on the back of it were tightened down. In the end I had to get out the belt sander and shave one side down so it fit in the cubby. Out of the box it was maybe 1/16” too wide making the fit very poor. It would fit OK when it was loosely sitting in there, but once tightened down it would lift up towards the front. I basically bent the mounting tab down a bit so as it is tightened it pushes the front of the bracket down/forward. End result is satisfactory though. I would love to come up with a custom gauge bracket somehow that better matched the interior, but I wouldn’t know where to start. I finally got the replacement rear brake line piece. I have the new/correct AC hose in the car and now all of the AC lines are in with new o-rings. Wtih the rear brake lines done I'll be able to put the gas tank back in the car. Once the rear is done I'll move on to the front struts. Debating if I want to rebuild the axles while they are out. From the how-to's I've looked at they appear to be relatively straightforward and all new boots and grease is only $100 to do both axles.

    New build! E90 M3

    Many cars I have had no qualms about cutting, slicing, etc. but this car I just couldn't bring myself to say "fuck it". I did have the fabric scissors sitting next to me just in case but i'm glad I was able to do it without ruining the original leather.

    Wait to be jealous when it's completely working. lol. I have to admit I am really excited to see all of these improvements coming together and the car more closely fitting the vision I had for it.

    E46+E46= E92?

    The most interesting thing to me about this is that they used a LHD and RHD. Made me think about the old “Wider is better” advertising campaign

    Thanks! The cams are good all around.... low end torque suffers a bit, but doesn’t affect drivability at all. The engine really wakes up above 4,000 rpms when the cams and vanos are working together 😁

    New guy - F30 335i

    Hey guys, I'm Jake, from the Eau Claire area! I'm pretty new to BMWs in general, but picked up this 335i last year @35k miles. It's Alpine white with coral red interior, pretty much bone stock, just slapped some HRE FF01s on it along with some BC BR coilovers. Supe r pumped to begin the modding process here once the warranty expires. Let me know if you guys have any questions!
