Thanks Stan, some really useful detail in those photos (and some nice restoration work!)while it is all apart, you may want to consider stiffening the chassis.
Glad that some of you guys are trying this out, like you said its not easily done work , that is a tricky piece to install . Many people seam to think that this e28 conversion has been done before , and that everything just bolted into place , witch after having done this twice is just not the case . Can't wait to see your project completed !One of my rear shock towers was stuffed so taking some inspiration from bdigel (Brendan) I got stuck into changing out the mounts to take the e28 rear subframe coilovers. I had some e28 top hats that were going to be paperweights but as they were only 5 Euro each, I got another pair and made something tall enough to do the job. I added some fishplates for extra strength.

It's no small task to get these puppies in and correctly lined up for the e28 rear, access to weld is pita!

Also needed to fab the pockets for the trailing arm clearance
