Ok check out these pictures, body fits great but had to shave metal off passenger side 1/4 to long compared to drivers side, checked fitment of seats and put the car on race scales 50-50 front to rear 50-50 side to side with me in drivers seat, total weight with a full tank of gas but no interior 1738 lbs. hoping 2100 lbs. when done. picture link,

I would say that looks like pretty much sensational work. Way to go!

Pretty cool build.
I am getting underway with something sort of similar. 60 Alpine, LS1 T56. I am researching rear IRS choices right now before I start to build the frame. What made you choose the BMW rearend?
