Whohoo! Congrats, mate!

Pics... hmm, I still use Photobucket, paid, but they suck harder than Monica Lewinsky.


It's the man next door!

Congrats! Followed your struggle earlier and really nice that it sailed through!

I use Dropbox now for quite some years and it works well.

I've been driving the e30 for the last month, done about 500 miles. It actually drives pretty well, of course it's a standard car so the suspension is a bit softer that most people would like but everything works as it should. So I got to the point of deciding what to do next, I could either get it painted and have a really nice e30, or should I leave it as is for someone else to have a nice project to finish. The quote for paint was £3k so I've made the decision to sell.

I'm finishing off a few bits before I list it on eBay within the next week or so. Basically it needs a full repaint, every panel has minor damage plus it needs a rear wheelarch and repair to the rear of the sill. Should make a nice project for someone, it will be a really nice car once painted. I'll post on the forum when it's been listed.

Then I can get back to my e21, maybe the engine will come back from the machine shop one day?

Choices choices. But yes that means additional funds for the E21!

I listed the car on eBay at 5pm Yesterday, at 11pm I had cash in my hands and the car made more money than I expected so it was a good project in the end.

Now back to my e21, just waiting for the engine to come back, in the meantime I'm getting my e30 cabriolet out of storage.
