    Awesome updates! Put a deposit down for Peter to build me a fresh S62. I also bought an 81k mile 6 speed from Adam. Waiting on a quote from Thayer for a fresh M5 diff and then will call ESS to order if I don't hear back from the guy selling the used kit. The car will be a beast! I hope to have it back by Christmas. And what a present to myself it will be!!

    I also have another car on the way, arriving this Saturday. But will wait until it arrives to post more. Not a BMW..

    Is this the "long term build" you mentioned earlier?

    There will be no long term build as the car being delivered Saturday will remain mostly stock. It threw a wrench in my gears but I couldn't pass it up.

    1971 Datsun 510 4 door with 16k original miles. The original tires are in the trunk. Came with all kinds of paper work, original window sticker, original title, warranty book etc. Just has a bad outward dent on the rear driver door and some other dings here and there.

    The car is very nice. Nasty outward dent on rear driver side door. I will have a PDR guy come out this week and have a look.

    Have you ever heard that old saying - "you can never go back home". When you have done it once it will never be the same again.

    Got more photos from Brian of the interior work. Paul installed the black kidneys, plate delete trim, M5 cluster, steering wheel and black dash. I ordered a ton of parts from Adam for the swap.

    You're dropping in a supercharged M5 engine? Impressive indeed. What's your time line for doing this project?

    Seats starting to get dyed. I had the UUC dual sheer selector rod lengthened 15mm to accommodate for the E38. I also got an EVO short shifter and a ZHP weighted knob.

    Trevor is supposed to start pulling the M62 and trans this weekend. The S62 is at the machine shop with work beginning this week.

    More pics from Brian. The first photo is a real M5 head rest against the dyed console piece.


    I shipped my driveshaft to Carolina Driveline on Tues. It arrived this morning. He said probably a week or so to knock it out. I just got a call from Steven saying he ran into a problem.... It's done already . That is some amazing turnaround!!!
















    And some photos from Trevor after he pulled the M62 and autotragic trans. He will clean up the bay before the S62 goes in

    Few other pics I forgot to add to this thread. My BBK and the UUC dual sheer selector rod that was lengthened by 15mm to accommodate the E38. I also have an EVO short shifter and ZHP weighted knob.

    This is coming along nicely! It's amazing how much better caramel looks compared to the tan, definitely worth it.

    Thanks! IIRC, you dyed your interior right? Cinnamon I think.

    I can't wait to see the finished product.
