Smile My latest project!

Well been a while since i checked out this site so i thought id post up some pics of my latest project.
After discovering some major rust in the sunroof tray of my old car i decided to just strip it and find a decent shell to swap all the best bits over too.
so i bought myself this one.
It started of as a 316i in Vulcan Grey(VulkanGrau).
Apparently its one of around 50 E30`s which were made by BMW in this colour as a test bed for the E34/E36 so making it pretty rare!
Only been on the road around a week or so now so still loads to do but it is coming together nicely.
Anyway heres some pics for you.All opinions are welcome.

This is the car as i first bought it


and now











These pics were taken yesterday after i fitted a set of front fogs and the matching Grey dash trims/console
