Fitting the engine.

Build012 1973 BMW 2002 SR20 051

The Nissan that this engine came out of was RHD. The 02 is not so there are a lot of things in the way that needed to be moved to make this engine fit.
Such as...
--Brake Booster
--Pedal Box (room for a downpipe)
--Steering box
--Lower control arms

So...time to pull those bits out and make something else work.

There are a TON more pictures of this entire process down in the gallery if you want to look more in depth. NOTE: All the metal was painted once mocked and welded.
