Again, no tweets/pics, but I reinstalled the fan and gave it a drive long enough to warm
it up, let it sit idling to prove it'd come on, and called it a day today. One. Step. Closer.

Drove this cross-country to a mate's back yard and built boost doing a skid on his back lawn by accident :-D

Stored there for a few days until I can get my shit together here.

Removed stored contents from it beforehand.

TODO list is still the same, not sure if published, so here goes:

  • Bonnet needs to be more narrow/more forward
  • Lower cross member needs to be less mangled/right height
  • Upright needs to be the right shape for bonnet mounting
  • Black zinc primer all over rusty bits of cross member and upright for stealth
  • Bumper assembly back on and bolted up properly (like never before)
  • Change over to little wheels with good tread for WOF

A few days turned into 4 months pretty quickly. :-/ Photo of where it lies: https://twitter.com/FredCookeNZ/status/ ... 5080987648

Likely to be home soon getting fixed and WOFed so it can live on the street again. And boost and redline again. Rice rice rice, all the way.

Drove this for the first time in 6 months today! And started fixing a few things immediately. And filling it with junk until it's WOF worthy:

Gave this a superficial scrub today, cleaned the worst of the grass and lichen and other junk off it. No pics of that, sorry.

Been driving this, illegally, and without boost, and without bumper, and full of stuff, every day or three for a while. Kinda enjoying it even in broken warped form. Should really put a little effort in and fix the few minor things wrong and get it back legal again. But in the mean time, BMW scrap steel storage facility:

hey Fred .. where's the best place for parts do you reckon in NZ .. or do you go overseas for them .. I might need new steering rack .. I definitely need all suspension bushes (factory or aftermarket eurothane)

Haven't had to put any parts on mine, yet. Pretty rare car. I'd probably look to Suzuki wreckers hoping for old stock, or try the dealership, or yahoo auctions japan, or something.
