Hi Stroke, first of all a big GOOD LUCK to you for the project. Next, just wondering why you didn't opt for a bigger engine if you're doing a complete rebuild anyway?

Thanks for your wishes.

I will make some modification in look but as per engine i will go with the original one.

As the engine is also opened to be overhauled.

Fair enough. Hope your restoration goes well. Please do keep posting pics as the project progresses. Nothing nicer than seeing how it all comes together!

Yaa I also have many dreams with my E30.

As i was having alto and meet with an accident at Ambala.
After that i get it repaired and sold it off.
I was planning to Buy Safari and also discuss with the people around me and one of them said me you can't buy it. I was angry but see God give me E30 no problem what's the condition was. At least i am owner of E30 now and as per condition it will be as a brand new after completing this project with all your wishes.

Some Pics of My Alto.
I was alone in the car and meet with the accident at 12:30 am.

At the first look, i thought the BMW entered the workshop too fast, skidded and toppled.

Good luck to the project.

That my friend you will have to replace with another unit. Firstly you will not get the exact part and even if you do (its possible) it will cost more than the car i can assure you. Get an A/c expert to check the cooling coil size and he will be able to replace it with something available im sure.

The blower unit is not a problem at all. There are so many available, you will definitely get one to fit in the place provided. Maybe a Sanden unit would do good.
