Everything is top guys, just the rims bug me. They are e46 OE wheels, style 68 indeed, but they have nothing to do with the e36 m3 :)

They where off of a 99 E36 M3. Was told they where original to the car, apparently not. My mistake, been informed. A few times. :D

I am 64 years young, and I want to build one like yours, was it very difficult and how long did it take? I enjoyed your presentation, very impressive. Thank you very much.

It took about 4 months to get the car running and driving. Took about a year to get it to where it's at now. The build it not very difficult as most parts are a direct bolt in from other cars. The difficult part for us was to keep the A/C so we boxed the fame on the passagers side.
