    Another E30 Project - E30 M3 Touring! Euro S50, Coilovers, Big Brakes, BBS !

    so after building bad ass e30 M3 coupe and E30 M3 convertible the next step was to build e30 M3 Touring.

    ever since I saw this pic I wanted to build something similar



    Good thing is that I found a very nice platform to build it on, bad thing is I only have one month to do it, this is a project that have to be completed by August 27th - our huge, Megatron e30 M3 meet at Pocono raceway to celebrate 25th anniversary of E30 M3!

    Anyway, some of you know this Touring





    car used to belong to Alex and he used to track it, I remember racing him in my DTM rep at Watkins Glen and Poconos









    anyway, as you can imagine, when I got the car it needed work. I knew that I wanted to build E30 M3 Touring, so I bought crashed e30 M3 shell and cut it for parts

















    what was left after we were done



    sad but at least these parts will be used for 2 future projects !





    we got the car into the shop and started to work on it, knowing that I only have a month, dropping the motor out and re-doing the engine bay is going to be done after the body will be completed



    fixing some rust spots



    doing some custom work on the front bumper









    I bought brand new fenders from the dealer and we put them on for test fit





    shaving the windshield washers





    welding the above pictured tow hook

    next step was the hardest part of the build - rear quarter panels







    the quarter panel has to be cut in half and metal must be welded onto the door and existing quarter panel to match the wide body contour of the m3 body lines

    Please tell me you're NOT going to shave the rear door handles like that blue E30 M3 Touring has. That is imho the only flaw that car has.

    This is going to be epic if you do it right. Which I know you will.

    I've always gotten "excited" over your projects, but this is just on a whole new level.

    I've always loved that E30 M3 wagon. I remember it from an old video burnout video with a bunch of other awesome cars. I look forward to seeing this come together.

    Nice.

    I wanted that silver E30 touring so bad but didn't have the funds at the time. It has a euro S50 right?
