    Rich, I'm a huge fan of those s/six BMWs, I think it's a great modern idea for a donor.
    Just bought my Galaxy from MTH, how did you ship it? Via Tuckett Bros?

    Well I have pulled the motor and stripped everything. It looks like I bought a gud un, a number of new steering parts and a recent exhaust, the engine is dry of oil outside and clean inside. There is an intercooler fitted so I was wrongly informed via another web site, maybe it was an option on earlier models? The engine is in place so I can get on and make mounts for steering etc.



    I plan to use the wiring loom from the BMW as needed and dump the excess if like other EFI systems it should seperate quite cleanly.

    Taf I did ship through Tucketts, a container has just left Neil is very reliable, honest and fair but unless you push a bit it can take quite a while to get your car into a container. I have never been in a rush but the last 2 have taken 12 months.

    Now I have the engine I put it in place and cut the bulkhead as I need an extra 3".



    to make the recess I used the original section built in for the straight 6 and extended it for the modern engine, this will make it look original when all filled and painted.



    I then formed the gearbox tunnel.



    With the engine in place I was able to fit the BMW steering box and idler arm from brackets fixed to the cross member.





    I had to shorten the link arm by about 4".

    I had some steel sections bent locally for the sills which I slightly pie cut to give a curve to match the door, I also fabricated the lower rear wing section.







    I have fitted the pedal box complete which has a very neat clutch master cylinder built in which resides inside the cockpit only needing a remote tank on the bulkhead



    The brake master cylinder is mounted on the N/S and is operated by a bellcrank which runs across the inside bulkhead, I will use it exactly as in the Bmw as the servo has more room that side anyway.

    Turn them round and bend the arms to give the correct Ackerman angle. If that does not work I will fabricate new arms and bolt them on like I did with the A coupe.
