A lip actually made for an e30 would give you a good line to work off of, but the volvo lip depends on the valance being straight to mount.

I think i am going to buy a parts car, i found one that was hit on the driver side, a 89 i coupe.. so i need some engine parts and the transmission parts, the front valance looks good so thats where im looking right now..

If you need parts or know someone who needs parts, ill be selling everything else real cheap just to cover the cost of the car.

I could be wrong, and I hope that I am. Just seemed like a random first 3 posts, with a "wholesale" link in sig, and who puts an SR20 in an e30? I guess we'll see...
