    No shit. When I saw you considering aluminum welding I was going to suggest you visit my boys at Nth degree. Tell John that Shitty Britches died. He'll be sad.

    The it was supposed to be just an oil pan gasket project

    Small world! They're good people... Bill has some good stories.
    I'll tell John. We ran into a snag on the heat exchanger brackets and he has to make new ones so he still has the car.

    Check out this gem, original twin Turbo.

    Bill had a dark blue e24 M6 for the longest time. I'm good friends with his son who drove it for about two years of college. It fit in and also stood out from all the other broke college kid beater cars.

    He still has it but he thinks he's going to sell it soon. He sold the E30 M3. He has a 37 Ford he's putting a modern rolling chassis with an LS under it.. That's going to be sweet...

    Got the car back the other day. They did an excellent job. I had to cut part of the radiator support to get the heat exchanger fans to fit
    so John reinforced it for me with a custom bracket. The new outlets look great too. Canít wait to get this plumbed in and wired up.
    The Ford Lighting harness that came with it will work perfectly. Almost like it was made for the e46. The only modification it needed was the relocation of the relay trigger wire within the harness.
    @ZHPizza John was bummed when I told him shitty britches died. Billís son was there too. (I forget his name)
    They said youíre crazy, haha!

    Bryson! I love those boys. Grab a handful of their junk the next time you're over there. Just say it's from me so it's not weird.
