I bought an old 940 SE for 100€ and gave it away the same day.



I installed the bigger radiator - the oil cooler now has to move again.



I only bought it because of the M46 in there. I'm going to swap it in place of my M47. It was just too cheap to say no... (Still hoping for that M90)

I painted the rims silver this weekend. Used a wire brush set and got to work until I was left with a metal surface. It took about 2 hours for one wheel.

you should have painted the centers gold ;)

i think it will look much better when you lower the front 15-20mm more and add some negative camber! long ricy wheelnuts also will look nice on it

really nice how it stands there

This weekend I cleaned out the engine bay a bit by cleaning and spraypainting some crusty lookings parts...



Apart from the intake manifold and timing gear it looks nice and clean now I think

Also installed this for safety... and looks:



I also got this nice retro looking MOMO wheel (I really should take a picture at daylight )



Hopefully I can get the new transmision in soon.

I cant tell any difference from the too locations. Might need a bit of cleaning after a few miles... I've got a few spares flying around.

I used the oem intake hose and attached the idle hose to the pcv intake. It's a tight fit but it works.

My Turbo is shot and started to smoke often especially on summer days. I checked the play and verified my guess.

While waiting for my new chra assemlby I created this CAD model (pictures show progess):











Not meant to be accurate or realistic... It's just what I like to do for fun
