Collected the rear end yesterday and trial fitted earlier today. All good, everything lines up. Chris has utilised the Z3 boot hinges on this kit so the boot lid is a quick and easy fit. The gas struts fitted to the hinges mean you don't need to fit an extra boot stay. The rear moulding also makes use of the upper mounting points from the Z3 wings so it all helps alignment and a quick assembly.
Plans for the weekend include fitting twin filler caps, recessed into the upper part of the rear wings. I also want to french in the rear lights a little further along with the rear number plate light.
The deep dish BMW wheels might get a 10mm spacer each side so they really fill out the arches. Lowering springs will be decided upon when everything is fitted and the car driven a bit, I've got a feeling it might settle a little.
Photos to follow !
