All Inka, with different types of clear coat so that I could see the finished look. Unfortunately since I am in CA my options for paint are pretty limited, but DuPont was able to provide a Inka match that I was pretty happy with at the end of the day.Looking at your 3 orange paint swatches, are they all Inka or have you had a custom colour made?
Thanks, I guess it's just the mustang guy in me coming through. I had a visitor today who said the same thing-keep it BMW, so here would be my question: it has the 3.0 engine but the tranny is really weak. I'm not really a fan of automatics so what would be the best manual transmission to put in a 74 CSa. I have located a set of pedals and the proper shift insert for the interior. I may start a new thread for this if you think that is the right direction to go-
Again, thanks for your comments
Hi, while an old topic, but very usefull because of the pictures you provided. I've checked your album, but do you have some pictures from the engine mounts you used? Or can you explain what combination of brackets/mounts you used? Started working on my S38 swap today and cannot find a clear answers/pictures on the engine mounts. Is it right that it fits with the original mounts in combination with the KMS bracket?For a while I have been promising (threatening?) to do a complete write-up of my car restoration. It was a ton of work, and we did a lot of small things and a couple of big things that I think will be interesting to the group.
Unfortunately life finds a way of intervening, and I don't see any way to do justice to the project at least until the end of the year, but I thought folks might be interested in a link to flickr that has a lot of the pics from the entirety of the build process.
It was great fun to be involved in doing this, the people that I've worked with could not have been better, and I can't say how much I have appreciated all the help from people on the board and folks like Dan (CoupeGuy) and Carl and Ben down at La Jolla.
I also owe some folks info about various things on the build - please feel free to shoot me another PM or ask here and I will do my best to answer. I know for example someone asked about our air intake system - there should be some pics of that setup in here.
