  1. Better late than never!
  2. Nice! My friend Jesse goes there all the time. All he builds is crazy shit 24/7. He just build an adult Tree house this summer and it's pretty epic.
  3. It can be preassembled due to the telescoping airbag steering column. I could weld the nuts or bolts to the adapter and call it done. I need to get the right diameter shanked bolts first to see if I’m happy with it. It seems like once it’s all tight, the flex disc deflects and the bolts will just push the material out of the way. If that’s the case, this might just be a mock up for a flaming river joint. ¯\_(ツ)_/¯
  4. Could it be?........😄🤣 https://madison.craigslist.org/atq/d/spring-green-1981-bmw-car-320is/7033680369.html cheap 335i https://milwaukee.craigslist.org/cto/d/milwaukee-2007-bmw-335i/7034621928.html e24 twin turbo?! https://www.facebook.com/marketplace/item/2131446750484247/ Still no takers at $3500 smh https://www.facebook.com/marketplace/item/510470463015733/
  5. I would think that's a fairly decent price considering...........https://www.autoblog.com/buy/2008-BMW-ALPINA+B7/specs/ It's a baller of a car, and a sizable headache. Its worth buying just to take the power plant out to fit into something of smaller proportions 😈
  6. Paint is on and waiting to install! Next I have a trick pinstripe kit I borrowed from a friend to refresh the worn striping. I will share with you guys how that goes in detail, it's pretty cool.
  7. Very much so. Everyone is hopefully just in their garages working on stuff so diligently, that they haven't had time to post updates.
  8. Made an adapter last night and it came out pretty good. I still need to weld it all together but Im thinking this might be temporary though. I need to prove out that there is no binding with a single joint, otherwise I will take the dimensions and still go with the anti-vibe flaming river joint. (images wont attach. I will try again later) I have yet to weld this as I realized that I will not be able to remove the hardware once I do so. I rather not tap threads into the plate but that might be my only option.
  9. Correct, and it's in there CRAZY good. You would need to chuck it in a mill to remove it without destroying both parts.
  10. Almost spot on to my plan. I looked at it all for about 3 hours last night and decided my best bet is make a disc that I can weld to the Z4 steel end. This I will then turn on the lathe to make it centric and mark the placement for the mounting bolts. Then I will run two bolts through the plate into the flex disc connecting it to the aluminum E30 U joint. That's a damn nice illustration. I am basically doing something similar, although the bolts have to be on the outside of the joint as the end caps of the U-joints are press fit with a special tool and hold the bearings to spec and I don't want to pull them apart. Otherwise I won't be able to get a bolt/ U joint stub through the center. I hope to have something mocked up this evening.
  11. Yeah I would never use steer-by-wire. It was more of a joke. I will say that electric power assist is great though. I have driven a few cars with it and it's not any different than traditional PS. My civic hybrid actually has it and its great.
  12. Never needed to. I think that's an issue with early models running newer racks. It was certainly offset more than the factory rack but not enough that I needed to modify anything. I wish they would hurry up and make steer-by-wire more common. 😐
  13. Well... the pictures of the paint flaking off of front valance of this car were driving me nuts. Fed up, I decided to fix it and toss some paint on it. So far it's been sanded and the holes filled. I will paint it this week.
