Hi All,

I would like to introduce myself and to join nice crowd.

My name is Arunas and I have recently ( a few months ago )purchased Nas80 E21.I have been a while coming and checking this forum, so decided it is time to sign up and share my passion :)

Since I got E21 I was very proud owner and enjoyed every minute of it. It was very steep learning curve and I keep constantly bombarding NAS with the quesitons. :driving

Plan with E21 is to keep it pampered and enjoy it on a nice Sunny days.

It is kept nice and worm and keep toping up Wax layers since then :playcar

Also, I did a few extra bits:


Installed oil cooler:

Oil Catch tank:

Oilpan skid plate:

Alliuminum Battery box:

Also, did other cosmetic things, changed some chrome bits, re-powder coated wheel center caps, injected waxoil to all gaps, did some audio upgrade etc. Winter evenings kept busy.

Near Future plans:

Upgrade front disks to 300mm for now and just keep enjoying it.

I hope to meet some new people during E21 meets etc.

Thanks

Arun

Hi Arunas, welcome here and congrats on buying one of the most wonderful E21's around!!!! Did Nas tell you that it was a mandatory part of the deal to show up at the Sharknose Meeting in Holland in May? 8)

Enjoy the car, keep her in good nick and also have fun on the forum!

Oh and I'll move the thread to the Modified section indeed :wink:

More than welcome to join us on the Ferry from Dover 8.25am on May 29th.

There are currently 4 or 5 cars travelling in convoy 1xE9 and the rest E21's.

Back on Topic:
Good the see the car still on the forum, Nas put in a lot of work with that car, I think you got a bargain. Good to see you'll continue with the upgrades :)

Have already told Arun about the sharknose meet, as hes not that far from Dover he doesnt really have an excuse!

Im really happy the car has gone to a nice home, (as welll as having some of my bodges fixed lol) i hope my next e21 turns out as good as that one did.
