    I measured some stuff yesterday and looks like i will have enough clearance up front with -2 degrees camber. I measured rear camber and currently is around -1.5 but i might need to add 0.5 degree to be safe.

    I also test fitted e28 front sway bar and it looks like it will be a perfect fit. I might go with an aftermarket thicker bar tho.


    I need to get some camber/toe adjusters from Ireland Engineering and make the rear end adjustable. I will need to also get the new shock mounting point welded into the stock e28 trailing arms. Shocks mounting points will have to move 1.5-2 in to clear the tires.

    I pulled one side rear fender and will start working on the other side.

    I cut the inner fender and pulled until it started to dent the outer then i backed up a bit. I welded piece of sheet metal to the inner to fill the gap. I will prime with epoxy and seam sea the shit out of it.


    I got my new Mig setup its the everlast i-mig200e. I have only experience with some crappy 60 amp mig and inverter tig machine. So far i am impressed with that new mig.

    I migged the front lollipop mounts together. And will weld them to the frame rails later this week.

    I had to notch the rear frame rail to clear the triling arm.

    Very cool! Looking forward to seeing the results of that rear fender stretch.
