Jan`s e21.

Post by Jannorway » Wed Oct 27, 2010 9:31 pm

Hello. Have been reading this forum for a while,and thought I should make a tread on my bmw e21. Its a 1981 316,and its my third e21.
When I bought the car it was like this:

Image

It was some rust on the car :

Image

Image

And some more.....:) But have taken care of all the rust.

Now the car look like this.:

Image

The engine:

Image

All the parts under the car is new,or has been refreshed (powdercoated):

I have bought a load of parts that I am going to fit this winter,like 323 brakes, new lips to the bbs rs,new engine...:)

Thanks..:)
The colour is 400 steelgrey. The rims are 7*15 et 16 and 8*15 et 18. The interior is in the original colour,and very good shape,but I want to get some black leather sportsseat in front,and black leather backseats.

Thanks..:)
The engine is a m10b20 from 1977 I think. I have fitted a 290 cam,and brand new weber 45's. The bottom of the engine has been opened and controlled,and found in good shape. It have been rebuilt once before it seems to. The cylinder head have I got completely restored,with new valves,valve guides and so on...the engine runs very good.

But I have bought another engine that I maybe put in...;)
