A slow bit of progress. Got the E24 subframe in and I now need to modify the brake cable sleeve extensions. My buddy will be welding the diff reinforcement pieces and sway bar mounts to the subframe and trailing arms (I'm using ST E3 kit).
Up front I was happy to see that Bavauto E28 headers fit without interference (I had them on my E30 vert hot rod). Another challenge will be the transmission mount and shifter carrier support since I am using the longer 260/6 from an E34 535i. When that's done I will have to figure out what driveshaft combo will work.
In addition to some other stuff I put all new brakes on the rear except I haven't done the hard lines yet. All new bearings and bushings too. I also installed the ST front sway bar, re-attached front fenders, and put in these new lights (e code H1/H4 with upgraded bulbs).
