    I should have finally put something here back when I joined the forum, but until this whole work from home thing, I haven't had the time to follow up on old forums.  Thank the folding for getting me back in.
     
    These days I have way too many cars, so sorry for the image dump lol.
     
    Daily, 6-speed, upgraded turbo, F50 (yes, the Ferrari) brakes, lowered, 3" SS304 exhaust with cutout, 1993 S4:

     
    The fancy "date" car, 93 XJS:

     
    The track car- Megasquirt3X, 4x ITBs from a GSXR750, full FC RX7 front subframe, TII brakes, etc, 1985 RX7 GSL-SE:
    (This actually has a full front splitter on it now)

     
    The classics: 1966 VW Squareback- full survivor, from my grandfather.  Man I was young in this photo.

     
    1950 Hudson Commodore 6, my "rally car (TSD rallies):

     
    Technically I own 50% of a 2003 Ford Ranger, which is a 24 Hours of Lemons car:

     
    There's past vehicles, but man this is way too big already lol.  So for those that got this far, here's a gif of me driving the Hudson way harder than I should have:

    Crossovers tend to have a higher roof line, more ground clearance, and a shorter, but taller cargo area vs a wagon

    Oh no my poor 9-3 lost oil pressure during highway driving and the engine is now broke, happened yesterday. I'll take this as an opportunity to build a solid engine for it.
     
    In the meantime I just picked up a dirt cheap 2006 9-5 wagon 2.0t biopower to be my new daily.

    The Model A is out of the barn and ready to head to the garage for a little winter love!
     

     

     
    Ignore the piss poor tie down method, those are just there so it wouldnt roll off the trailer while moving it around in the barn.

    So Next up Was some Repair work. 

    New Intercooler From Mishimoto, Also upgraded the plastic Boost Pipes from 2" to 2.5" and did them out of Alloy. They'll also be sent off for a Ceramic coat for heat as well as some good old Gold Wrap. 


    Then Began the Prep work for the Final Round, It was decided the Car would be leaving Street class and moving to Pro Open, so might as well begin now. 
    So Much work to get done, just to make it to the next round. 

    First Strip everything out the inside

    Dash Got the Chop Chop


    So Total with removing Carpets and Body panels and all the Aircon/Heater Crap we got just over 100Kg out of the car, Thats over 220 Freedoms for you Weirdo's. 

    But then begun the Wiring Nightmare. Now I've never done anything to do with wiring before but the goal was to make it clean, So Remove everything thats not needed (Had to learn how to make sense of wiring diagrams) cut out the Excess, Re solder and Sleeve it all so its nice.


    Well also needed to Cover up some Massive holes so bring in the Carbon Fiber panels. 

    we got it sorted, and Also wired up my new Ignition panel where the old Light switch used to be with some left over Carbon Fiber. 


    So at This point, Car was Lighter, Cleaner and Ready to go for the Last round. Was very excited as just finished it all in time.

    Must admit the E3* era of BMWs brought some of the best looking BMWs to date.
    Everything since then has been average

    Aside from having the rust repaired and a new spoiler(not pictured), I have to admit that I'm a bit of a nerd for factory options. No scrap that, a total fucking nerd. I've been sourcing parts and wiring looms for all sort of rarer factory options, for years now. All boxed up and labelled, waiting for the day they can all get fitted.
     
    And seeing as I've also decided to give black interior a go, it was the perfect time. The whole white/grey interior came out, carpet and all, so everything electrical could be properly retrofitted; wiring under the carpets, mounts for new modules etc. Some looms I had were complete, but some had to be cut out of donor cars. So auto electrician buddy helped me out, manufacturing me new looms using the original connectors. Aside from the electrical, I also added some less common interior trims

    List of parts added;
    - Heated seats
    - Electric seats
    - Cruise control
    - Headlight washers
    - Harmon Kardon soundsystem
    - Electric rear pop-out windows
    - Parking sensors
    - Roller blind parcelshelf
    - 'Extended'(leather trimmed) dashboard
     
    It was a good spec car before, as E36's go...but now, I can safely call it 'mega'
