my 1988 M6

Post by z33k » Mon Apr 09, 2018 5:48 pm

Hello guys...happy to be here and see some more 6ers out there as they're somewhat rare here in Atlanta.

Here is my car currently...pretty much replaced every nut and bolt on this car and fully rebuilt the engine to OEM specs with the exception of MAF conversion and Euro headers and custom exhaust with a Supersprint muffler. I am searching for a Mtech front end for my car to complete my look.

And yes the car is bagged. I like the low look but I want to drive it everywhere and not destroy the car =)

Thanks!

Oh dang, nice =D>

Love the interior upgrades, non-stock power seats, non-airbag steering wheel, you'll have to tell us more [-o<

Need more photos from under the hood as well, looks like some lovely colored bits there :wink:

And please do yourself a favor and add your location in your profile, before you get hollered at #-o

It does look very nice. A credit to you. I don’t mind the red plenum and valve cover. A nice individual touch without bastardising it too much

Nice looking work. What sort of wheels are those? If you get up to Greenville or Spartanburg, SC, please let me know.

That is nice work in the trunk. Both utilitarian, and luxurious at the same time.

You are an absolute tease. Please post a link to where you store photos. I want lots of underhood pictures just as Bobbo asked - but more!!

Agreed that you put lots of beautiful, serious work into the car. Not what I would do but I can appreciate the beauty of what it is. Thanks for the tease :D

I believe you could eat off of any part of that car. It's just immaculate. :shock:

Im working on the engine bay as we speak. It will be nothing crazy just clean with a part painted here and there. I had recently the power steering hose bust in the middle of a road trip and it looks like a crime scene underneath right now...I really don't take many pictures of my car its always someone else. Haha...But I will as soon as I wrap up the under the hood portion.
