Painted block but I still need to take off the accessory brackets and clean them. I had the upper and lower intakes sent out to be hot tanked waiting for them to come back...

I am looking for an e30 wiring harness, any leads would help, or places I can buy one online?

HellrotE36 07-31-2014 07:04 PM

How much of one do you need? Just for the firewall connector?

Well know that I am looking more into it I mainly need the c101 connector which I need to look but I think I have? I'm thinking there might be other pieces I need from it but I won't know until I'm there.

HellrotE36 07-31-2014 07:34 PM

I have extra c101 connectors for the engine side

Awesome I might need one! Also I forgot to get that patch panel from you when I was out there I'll get ahold of you soon and stop out...

HellrotE36 07-31-2014 07:43 PM

Thanks for the info Chris!

Boomstick 08-02-2014 01:46 AM

Opinions! After the engine is in this car I am going to work on the appearance. Don't get me wrong I am a big fan of a factory paint car and I was going to have it redone in the arktisblau metallic but after having it for a little bit know I'm not sure if I like the stock color it's a little dull. I am thinking about changing the color to something a little nicer looking. Possibly other factory bmw colors...What are your opinions on this? Thanks

This should give you some ideas:

I'm partial to green cars, especially with brown interiors.
