I was getting prepared to post my project when I saw this - project is in central MA - here's some info on my project (viewtopic.php?f=35&t=2785
). I will be posting it soon but if your friend hasn't found one, here's what I have:
-book build frame w/front suspension arms
-bmw m42 drivetrain (engine has been machined, head work done, just needs balancing and assembly - comes with new upper/lower gasket kits, matching tranny and driveshaft)
-bmw M3 rear diff - larger pumpkin and 4.10 ratio lsd
-bmw e30 rear half shafts
-bmw e30 front/rear uprights/struts/brake calipers
-bmw e30 steering column
-ford escort (european) rack
-e30 wheels - bbs basketweaves
-nose cone and scuttle
-Italian 350mm steering wheel (momo style)
-brake components (booster and master cyclinder)
-tons of other miscellaneous stuff
The kit was rolling when I purchased it, and was disassembled when shipped. I sold the engine and tranny, and began work on the e30 drivetrain approach, which would require modifying the chassis and redesigning the front/rear suspsension a bit to make it work.
Let me know if you think he'd be interested. I have more invested in the engine work and parts I've accumulated than the chassis so I need to go through my info.
