  1. Scratch built GTO. Shame some of the early pics are missing. https://www.madmechanics.com/forum/forum/kitcar-discussion-forums/build-diaries/20189-1962-ferrari-250-gto-scratch-build
  2. Awesome news mr sheeper’s.
  3. Meh. At least you know the two are compatible. Also, I find the BMW wiring pretty straightforward once you’ve got a grip on it.
  4. Later e46 had e-throttle that I think slots straight into floor mount. Dunno if it runs the throttle body though. Anyway... it’s fucking awesome. Love it. Carry on.
  5. Ok. Here’s my silly suggestion. If its getting hot on the fans, are you sure they’re running the correct way?
  6. Dragged this outta the weeds where it had been sitting for a couple of years. Cleaned it and chucked some new gas in it and a battery. Started it up no drama and took it for a short run up the road. Had forgotten what a laugh it is to drive. But the tyres had turned to plastic so behaved like a drunken monkey. Got some tyres onto a set of wheels I’d had hanging around for a few years but was too weary of them rubbing to use before, but thought fuck it, they’ll do for a hoon down to Leadfoot in Feb. And they do rub but meh. Then it sprang a leak in the radiator. Bugger. But if that’s the worst thing that happens I’ll call it a win. Got a renewed interest in it so as soon as I get the shed built I’ll rip it to bits and rebuild it to fix all the things I rushed or don’t like about it.
  7. This won’t make it to leadfoot this year will it?
  8. Grey area I guess. Anything structural like wall hung pans and sinks builders should be doing it. Anything for taps ect is up to the plumbers. House is looking awesome though. You’ll be stoked to see them leave ha.
  9. When I did this to the e30 I also needed a printout from a digital chassis aligner/laser thingy showing it was all still square and straight. Was pretty easy in the end except there aren't many panel shops equipped with one.
  10. Morning chaps. Quite like this here forum, so thought I might join in a bit more.
