So got at this for a couple of hours today. Ripped the most of the interior out aside from the dash. There is some pile of stuff, the weight that's gone outve it already is unreal and haven't touched the sound proofing yet.

Anyone good advice on getting it off? It's really sticky even tar like stuff. Can ya spray somethin on it to freeze it and make it come off in lumps instead of tiny pieces?

Few pics, clean enough shell with a few scrapes and dents, nothin special but I'm lookin forward to makin it look mean!










Hope to get the engine and box out next week and get it fully stripped and ready for the cage!

Some lads say heat gun and others say dry ice and freeze it and it'll come off in lumps? Haha the miller could affect productivity badly!

E46s are only a fraction heavier than an E36. They aren't as easy to make a "decent" drift car out of them as an E36 just because parts aren't as easily interchangeable on them and in my opinion apart from the M3, the engines aren't really as eager to rev like for example an E36 325 or 328. lots of torque and all but more suited to being nice and drive-able as a road car.


Saying an E36 328/3.0L M3 gearbox is stronger than an E46 M3 box is rubbish. Granted, alot lighter but definitely not stronger. E46 M3 has the same gearbox as an E39 M5 with just a different bell-housing and different length input shaft.
