Are you just restoring it or modifying it too?

wow! 2 evenings doing that?? your a fast stripper!! :lol:
good work!

id think twice about m50/m52 if i were you.
rob (wiz0r) on here has been trying to get one in his 21, and abandoned it due him breaking his oversize shoe horn on it!

a standard e30 325i lump provides enough grunt to move an e21 around in a very spritely manor! costs £200 and drops straight in!

Amazing progress already!

I feel like a bloody idiot trying to figure out how to remove the front bumper with an optional BBS front spoiler without resorting to my BFH (Big Fu##ing Hammer)

:oops:

Thats sounds nice, I'll bet it would drive even nicer :)
By the looks of your pics, it doesnt look like your car needs much restoration. Keep the pics coming.

Started alining up the engine to make engine mounts. Routing cables and so on. When I have installed it all, I will pull it out again to sort out the bodywork and paint
