yeah i will take pics, right now the removal process is quite boring and not really picture worthy.....but i will take some pics tonight of the engine removal. as i am without a diggy cam right now, i will just take some pics with a disposable and put them on disk so i can share with the group.
your E21 looks almost the same as mine, same color and everything. however, mine has some paint issues so she is getting primered up grey when finished. or perhaps black, haven't quite made up my mind in that reguard........
i also have a full roll cage out of my GTI that i am going to modifiy to make fit, my friend has welder will travel.....so we are hooking it up. already have a sticker made for her that says "never trust a primered car with a roll cage" also have a set of 16in TSW imolas for her (off GTI yet again) that will be going on as well as the racing seats i have left over from the old race car. she will be looking sharp when i get her back on the road no doubt

ok, so my friends had other prior plans and couldn't come over last night......but tonight it's on for motor drop. i pulled the drive shaft last night and removed little odds and ends and started to cut up the front clip.....also noticed that the fuel pump was stolen as well......hope that's the last of it that comes up missing that i need........
and like i said i was going to make, i noticed my first mistake. in my haste to get the wiring out i cut the wires going to the aux fan. no biggy thought cause i seperated them out from the rest of the loom left in the car, so all i have to do is match them up and a little sodiering and heatshrink and i will be back at one. also took some pics tonight of the donor car.
so tonight will be motor removal, tomorrow will be car cut up, and sunday the 320 will come home and i will start working on pulling that motor too

Awsome man, sounds like the wheels are really turning there, you must have a pretty nice garage setup to be doing all of this, good for you!* I cant wait to have my own house with garage, soon enough I guess....* That's when the projects will start for me!
Is that 6cyl going to bolt right up to the E21 drivetrain??* * * used
