  1. The car has indeed been parked since 01 though and was imported to New Mexico
  2. Style 26’s. From what i understand they were never sold in America and if they were it was an extremely small amount. They’re supposedly even really hard to come by in Europe.
  3. So after contacting International BMW where I know a manager, I got the word that the car was in Germany from 1993-1998. It spent almost all of its miles there and has all the service history of the car documented. The guy I bought it off must’ve been misinformed on the history of where the car was originally from. The service booklet had some really cool brochures in it and a bunch of other stuff like this cool napkin. Super pumped about finding this car.
  4. I personally like the look of the unpainted bumpers. I made my other coupe 2 tone with grey bumpers on purpose
  5. Well not related to the Daytona. But picked up a Mauritiusbleu metallic 318i individual that has been sitting in a storage unit since 01’. Hasn’t seen daylight in 18 years. Originally ordered in Canada it spent its entire life in New Mexico. The thing is flawless underneath and has no rust. Excited to daily drive it and give it the love it needs. A deep cleaning, a buff, new fender and hood on the way! Was originally parked because the owner was leaving his marine base driving it to wisconsin home and got into a minor accident. Parked it, and here we are 18 years later.
  6. There is now! Just picked these up from a local tire shop they had sitting in the back in a box from the early 90’s. They used to be a MOMO distributor back in the day. Super neat score that’ll match the Recaro Momo Special and fit the period correct theme I’m going for. Also the cage is currently polished/cleared. I can’t find any other pictures or anything on these pedals
  7. Which part? The part I made is getting wrapped, the shifter itself will stay as is with probably a white knob to match the letters on the seats and steering wheel. The aluminum should match the lips of the wheels
  8. Well a whole new clutch setup later and throwout bearing and we are finally back up and running! Spent the day deep cleaning all the interior panels, deciding what was good enough to keep and what had to go! Also made a shift boot/cage for the CAE. Going to wrap it in alcanatara suede but the brushed aluminum isn’t bad till I park the car for winter soon.
  9. ISO MINTY E36 COUPE DOOR PANELS. Preferred black vinyl but will take leather if perfect
  10. New clip, didn’t make sure the fork was aligned properly to be honest. Kind of stupid of myself. Didn’t have any problems with the last slave on my other e36 so I figure it was as easy as screwing on and making sure it’s tight. Going to make sure everything is perfect before I even look at that clutch pedal this time
  11. Finishing it up today after work. Fingers crossed everything will go well 🤞
  12. So went to remove trans yesterday. Had a hell of a time with the 1JZ starter. Was not fun to reach. Got it off and the problem was just what I expected. A worn pivot pin. After spending all day in the rain removing the trans and putting it back in I was nearing completion.. installing the slave ready to be done. Pressed the clutch and the slave blew it’s been piston and rod into the trans. Had to take it off and put it back on again. Hopefully today the slave will decide to line up properly
