Re: Project Tandem of Die- Replica of Justin Shreeve's S13

I fitted the rear under body. The Pandora s13 is about 1-2mm wider on both sides compared to the D-like s13. To have it fit decently, I had to cut the rear into 3 sections. Not bad but still needs work and maybe come down 2mm. http://i815.photobucket.com/albums/zz74/mikep415/RC%20SHIT/11_zps05a00746...

Ive had this body for over a year and its the original 318i produced in the 90's(pre-drilled for TL01). I did manage to find a brand new fa...
