I'm in no spot to give advice. I'd redo it all shittily and then it would break. Or make a 2 year build out of it.

Lol, yeah. I had long enough to think about it yesterday. I kept thinking I was gonna need to buy a new dd so I would have a car, but then I kept thinking about the rust on my car and how I don't want to put all this effort into this car if later I'm just gonna have to make a 2 year project out of it just to fix the rust. So I came to the conclusion that yeah, I love the car, but a car's a car.
I'm just gonna fix the brake so it works and fix it slowly like you said Tony. So instead of having to buy a new dd, this one will be my dd and I'm just gonna stop caring about it as much. haha. Then I'll pick up a clean shell hopefully in the near future and start building it.
The only thing that makes the decision hard is how attached I am to the car, which is bullshit. It's a damn car. lol. There's a million e30's out there.

nothing wrong with being attached to it. If you plan to swap most of the good parts to a new chassis it will still sorta be the same car, lol. Rust sucks man, just a fact of life for those of us living in the rust belt.

Do you really need to remove the valve cover to get the fuel rail out? I know I didn't remove it when I changed my injectors, but I don't remember if I took the rail out altogether.

4 million actually ;)




And no, I'm not sure about that haha. Just think I read somewhere that 4+ million were produced total. And Austin, again with my useless contributions on a topic like we talked about earlier hahahaha.

Forgot to update this.
Ended up just being the line. Replaced the outside rubber line with SS and the outside hard line and called it a day. I don't have the money or the space to drop the subframe and do everything I want to do, so I'm just gonna do it little bit at a time.

Meanwhile, I'll be looking for a clean body e30 that I won't mind putting so much work into. So Yoshi, if you find another one for cheap, try not to hoard yet another e30, and let me know about it. :mrgreen:

I have an '88 sedan I'm parting out and have zero use for the shell. There is some surface rust and a booger welded front right bumper mount, but it's cleaner than yours. Shipping totally kills the deal, though :(

Hmm. How much do you want for it?
I don't really have a place to even put a shell right now. I need to move to a place with a garage first anyway.
