    Don't normally join club but had a few z3 club flyers stuck to my project car so thought I'd post some photos as you can see early stages but will be installing the BMW 3.5 v8 engine in soon. The roof is from a mk 3 astra as I'm not into convertible cars. Title was meant to read something different but auto correct thought differently lol

    Hi Tony have quarter windos off the original donner car and will get the front door glasses cut to raise and drop smooth like originals will have a black trim splitting the windows on a similar angle to the angle of the screen so will look nice
