RE: E46 3.2 M3 Wide Body Project
On Sunday we did a shake down run around Zwartkops. I didnt rev past about 3500rpm (about where boost comes in) so there are no times to brag about as I was running very slow. (middle to high teens)

We also need to setup the suspension, fit the front splitter, paint the doors and fit the windows, and finish all the little bits and pieces which you could probably make out from the following pics:

Car feels so much better than my e36 already though. It really sits through corners and picks up speed quickly. Its a little unfair to compare though as this car has better everything compared to the e36 which was a bit of a back yard build scraping bits together.

So far we are on track for our first race next weekend at Zwartkops. (26th,27th and 28th)

PS.
There are two short videos on my facebook page also if you would like to see them.

are you going to leave the front window frames like that? looks like it will impact visibility alot?

Hi Bruce

Just came across the thread today, would like to know which panel beaters straightened the shell for you?

Pretty good job at getting it straight.

Nicely done Bruce.
