The chevy is sitting out in my parents garage right now, with a freshly rebuilt 4 bolt and a tranny sitting next to it and the front clip apart. I have decided a garage might be imperative to keeping my parents from disowning me.
BTW those seats worked out great, thanks! Put them in and then for days later drove to Oklahoma city and back with them, the ones that were in there were so trashed I probably wouldn't of been able to walk when I got back.
Thanks for the welcome everyone.
dbruhn, awesome cars you got there. I would love to get my hands on an E30 ix 4 door but it has to be a 5 speed. Some members from r3vlimited.com have done the manual swap. I'm sure the swap from auto to manual in a rwd car is easier but i'm not certain about the IX model.
About the red 318i at upullrparts, I was just there the other day and the dash is gone, tail lights gone, radiator is gone. The 'goods available' that I saw when I was there, the hood is in real good condition, the seats are good too, the tranny feels good (5speed), and all the body panels are intact and in the car.
