    Hope this works. Uploading from imageshack. First try was to simply bolt in the motor and six speed transmission. This did work but we would have had to cut the core support to install the cooling system and the motor seemed too far forward and high for the type of handling I wanted. So, we modified the firewall, tunnel and mounts and installed it again. The results were 1, much better weight distribution and 2, a much cleaner look.

    Car? Obviously the rear bumper cover needs to be painted and add the rear bumper moulding. Check out the period correct three (3) piece Gotti wheels and the Meistershaft exhaust (will post close up of those later). Gotti wheels are staggard 7.5" and 10" x 15". Modified rear trailing arms to allow for additional... you know (will post pics of modification when I take them).

    The car is excellent. But the back bumper...it looks like its off of a different car. Not feeling it

    Rear Bumper Cover

    I'm still undecided on the back bumper cover. Somebody stole the matching BBS rear side skirts and I have not been able to locate a pair since. The car looked like it was naked without something in the rear so I thought I'd try the bumper cover from a 2010 M6. We'll see if it remains on the final version of the car or not.

    In an attempt to transfer as much weight to the rear end as possible. The old tanks were replaced with dual battery trays mounted on piano hinges and tool box style latches for easy access.

    Vlad, meet Ryan, Ryan, meet Vlad.

    You both have something in common...S50B32 from my warehouse!

    I've been seeing photos of Ryan's project(s) for a while now, you can not believe how well he's executing. I'm sure he'll find a solution for a proper looking rear bumper cover at some point.

    Looks awesome so far, can't wait to see the execution of the interior!

    If you don't mind me asking, what did you use for motor arms on that S50 to get it to sit right?
