BMW 320i

Had an \'82 320i, stripped it down due to a bent frame from an unfortunate hydroplane. Current one is a bare share, no rust except for floorpans, which I have cut out and are in the process of being replaced with sheetmetal. A turbo m10 is on the stand being built.

I dont know much about this chassis, except it showed up 75% stripped down on a flatbed at the shop. So I got my hands on it and continued stripping it down. Now its a completely bare chassis, and I\'ve sandblasted almost the whole thing to refinish it and get rid of any chance of rust to ever claim this car! I\'ve got a Long list of parts waiting in line to be installed, just having trouble finding the time to do it!
