That's service with a smile right there.

Please feel free to mail any pieces you want to "live on" in the community to the address provided. Especially any 16v engines with shiny copper bits

On that note, what's your beer situation look like?

You really missed the boat on that. He sold off the motor months ago.

The valve cover just sold on ebay recently:

Unfortunately in an attempt to eliminate the built in tool shed I don't drink much beer these days.

Day one of the week off in the books.

Tomorrow should be a little better. I don't need to run around picking stuff up. It's going to be just fabrication stuff. Plus drilling out a bunch of spot welds. Today I got the gantry set up, the body lift rigging fairly level, the fuel overflow tank relocated and one half of the Amazon inner rocker drilled out. I made the kids clean the inside of the E30 out (it's like pulling teeth to get them to help). Tomorrow I'll drill out the other rocker first, then just straight to lifting the body and test fitting.

I'll try and get a better position on the camera tomorrow.

Edit: was today's live stream. I thought it said it would DVR it, but doesn't seem available.

A woman just hurriedly walked by, and I felt uncomfortable, like I'm spying on people.

Getting closer. It's a process of lower, mark, raise, trim, lower, mark, raise, trim until I get it where I want it. Then it'll be raise, grind, weld prime, lower and weld.

My minds eye is cutting/chopping and welding the BMW aprons. Be fun to see how far off my minds eye is.

I think I'm going to bring the body all the way down to even on the lower pinch welds. That will put a fairly big step up in the interior rocker (like a Corvette), but I think that's the only way I'll be able to get the car as low as I'd like. I'm not about the off-road look.

Better to drop the body lower and retain suspension travel vs. slamming it after the fact. Good progress!

Needs LOTS moar low. That is stock height suspension at the moment too. And missing all the glass and interior.

Only thing I'm a little worried about is headroom. I've ridden in plenty of body dropped cars that feel pretty funny.

Hopefully by the end of tomorrow the two will be stuck together some amount.

Isn't the 122 blessed with fairly generous headroom?
