I’ve got a 1974 3.0 CS that I will be fixing up over the next few months. My plan is to install following: M30B35 headers Weber 38/38’s Megajolt ECU (Ford edis, GM coilpacks) Alu radiator w/ electric fan While I’m at it, I will have the the following done by Axiom Restoration in Virginia Beach: Engine bay repaint Under carriage paint Battery relocated to under rear seat Rewiring the car with Coach Control wiring Stainless exhaust I initially told Kyle at Axiom that I was considering going to manual steering and he said why not R&P. I said that not many have done it without a lot of fab which is not in the budget, but he managed to convince me that he could do it with the existing subframe and using non-BMW parts. I’m skeptical, but at the price he quoted, I decided to give it a shot. I’m also going to try re-dyeing my leather seats and door panels. Because I don’t have the budget to repaint yet, I am thinking about a vinyl wrap. Don’t lambaste me yet, it’s not a done deal, and even if I do, I will keep it conservative. For now, here are some pics of what I am starting with. I think it is fairly dry/little rust. I took a scope and peeked into the box under the A pillar; everything looked good, will treat that area with cavity wax and say my prayers. Another bonus was that the undercoating really did it’s job. Not sure if this was factory stuff, but you can see that where it had rubbed off were the only places where any rust is evident. I am going get the entire the underside blasted and epoxy coated with in the factory color (Polaris).
