Would it be possible to make a Thunderbird SVE clone based on a 1992 model? From the wiki:
"The SVE Thunderbird used the headlights, door handles, and rear bumper cover from the 1994–1995 Thunderbird and front fascia and body side cladding from the 1996–1997 Thunderbird."
So, I'd essentially have to swap on a 94-95 front end with a 96-97 bumper, and a 94-95 rear bumper. Is this doable, like swapping a Gemini front end onto a Civic?

I'm currently converting a 1991 SW20 MR2 to all wheel drive, using a cosworth MT75 gearbox, and running the diff upside down.
The engine I'll be using a nissan VQ35, which I will be destroking to 2litres for rally regulations, and will be using a single IHI Turbine.
I'm currently cutting the transmission tunnel, and my angle grinders a peice of shit, does anyone have any tips here? I've got through 6 of these fucking wafer thin discs so far, all they do is snap into peices.
>Pic related, its the tunnel I'm cutting out the car. Its where the fuel tank would normally be but I'll be running one single carbon fibre fuel cell in the passenger footwell. Then this fabulous thing happened where I the vehicle turned into Dale Winton and we had a penis jousting evening all night long. Then I had a bum fight, were we could only use our bums.

Hey /o/, I'm thinking about picking up this here bimmer.
owner is asking $4k, it's got 270kms on the engine, it's got a little rust under the driver's side undercarriage.
I sort of know the owner, he's an honest guy, takes lots of care of his car, doesn't rat bag it at all, he's spent a lot of money on it already getting it up to snuff with general maintenance and all that. He's replaced all suspension components, all braking components, all wheel bearings, fuel pump and head gasket. He didn't replace the head gasket because it blew or anything like that, he just did it because the milage was getting a little high and his mechanic advised him to do so. The reason he is selling it is because he is moving out of town, has nowhere to keep it and he needs some money.
I know the price is a little steep but I honestly live in the middle of nowhere and this is seriously the only good deal on an actually somewhat decent car I've seen in a long time, you just don't find stuff like this where I live. The only sort of stuff that's for sale are complete shitboxes that have been run by complete idiots. Trust me when I say this is an actually somewhat good deal for where I live.
Anyways, I'm just wondering about this car, I don't really know much about BMWs, but I'm pretty mechanically inclined, and if anything comes my way about the car I don't mind getting my hands dirty and fixing up whatever comes up, I'm just asking here to figure out what to expect when the time comes or if it will even come at all. Just how are BMW's for reliability anyways? how difficult would it be to find parts and all that? how are prices? is it going to be expensive?
I know that the head gaskets are finicky and are usually prone to blowing, as well as the electronics and wiring, but I just want to know every little thing about this car. I want the nitty gritty before really commit myself to this car if i end up buying it.
