    The fender cutting for wide body has begun.








    I picked up an ML430 to be the tow rig for the drift car, which I have nicknamed Magnhilda, a German name meaning strong battle maiden.

    That ml needs a m113k swap and from the looks of it, a tow hitch and trailer

    Hey Man,
    Sweet build, curious to see how the wide body comes out. I know that a big limiting factor is tire size on these cars from what I have been reading. I just picked up a 190d for my next swap project. Subscribed for more updates.

    Just came across this thread and wow... amazing.

    Any new updates?

    2018 update; part 1

    Man, it has been a wild 6 months. Sorry for lagging on the thread. Here's some updates!

    "During last season's cliffhanger episode, our hero had begun widebody cutting..."




    Mr. Ship like the boat sent me some sweet fiberglass body parts



    This shot threw the white balance waaaay off lol



    Some wheel fitment math. Let me show some of you youngin's how it's done! First we gotta measure what we have, this is being done on the amg aero II's 18x8.5 et44. It's not clear what these wheel's lip and barrel sizes are because they are 2-piece. I'll be calculating the current sizes to make a new setup for these wheels to be my rear drifting set. They're going to be converted to 3-piece and have a whole bunch of lip, they're gonna be hot! Here's how we find out!

    Wheel hub to outermost part of the barrel - 6.5


    Back of the barrels mounting area to outermost part of barrel - 7.125


    Wheel hub to front lip - 2.75



    Whole wheel width - 9.25


    The measurements. Some of what's written were eyeball guesses, later cleared up with physical measurement. With the total wheels width, we minus the specced 8.5 tire width to get the lip's thicknesses, 9.25 - 8.5 = .75 / 2 = .375. Now we know we can knock that .375 from the wheel hub to barrel, 7.125 - .375 = 6.75 and wheel hub to front lip, 2.75 - .375 = 1.75. Those together, 1.75 lip and 6.75 barrel, give us our mounting width of 8.5 at et44. We can use this knowledge to also simulate where our wheel will end up once it is rebuilt, but we gotta pick a size first :)



    To meet the new evo flare, I've decided on 18x10.5, with an et of somewhere between 0, -10, or -15. If I do a 5 lip and 5.5 barrel, i'll get et-13, 4.5 lip and a 6 barrel, that will net me et -0.4, soo pretty much et0. If I tone down the lip a bit more to 4 with a 6.5 barrel, that will net me et12. I just so happen to have the right combo of spacers to somewhere in these ranges, two 25mm's gives me -6, the two 25mm's and a 5mm gives me the -11, and the two 25mm's with a 10mm gives me -16, pretty damn close.










    I think I like the -16 the most, I'm gonna have to go wider than evo I >:}

    2018 update; part 2

    Found another e55 amg motor, it's gonna be nice to have a spare! This w210 was wrecked hard on the driver side, so at least the motor was working lol little baby fire in the passenger corner from the starter cables but nothing super serious, it was worth saving. The last one I found in the junkyard that started this whole project was 4 years ago! Pretty rare find.







    When you pull an engine by yourself and need to get back to the front in one trip :p



    Time for some engine fitment pics! You guys wanna see how well this engine fits in the engine bay? Let's flip this bitch around and see what's up.










    This engine actually fits pretty well without needing to cut in the first firewall, it sits behind even the little early 8v sway bar here. Most folks making a street car can call it good here and make mounts for it based off of the w210 passenger side mount, driver side is too long, it would need to be trimmed back to land right on the crossmember like the passenger side does.

    I'm going to go a bit more wild and cut into the strut triangular floors a bit, doing that will let me tuck the engine rearward as much as the pan will allow me to, I will also have the engine mounted only high enough for the pan to clear the crossmember vertically by a quarter inch.



    Look at all that room!







    Next up, cutting the other side, but first, we're moving shops!

    Well... fuck... the move did not go super smooth. Banging doors on my drift car before its even finished! The forklift the guys bought, to install the new lifts, bled down overnight while holding one up, which fell on my car. Not happy about it but lucky it only hit the door.






    Lucky me, I found an 877 paint code 190e about a hundred miles from me, long ass drive just to find that the door I needed got fucked by the forklift they use to move the cars, why do I keep getting fucked by forklifts!? But at least it's better than the one that got sliced open. Le sigh.



    Here's the new spot



    Little cross-thread project going on. My track 16v has suffered some subframe damage from heavy track and canyon use, I'll be reinforcing it and adding some sweet rear bump steer modifications with the help of Beatbox. I'll be making one of these subframes for the drift car too. I will do what I can turn this into a kit or service for fellow 190 owners, stay tuned on that. You can see more of this subframe project in "Dimples" thread here soon - http://forums.190rev.net/showthread....-the-swifteenV




    More widebody cuts!












    Little dress up / test fit



    This is how it looks at et0, can't wait for it to be wide af

    Cutting out a piece of that first firewall, getting ready for some more cuts for engine clearance.


    Also starting some strides with the front suspension; modifications for angle and getting the steering rack setup.




    Out with the oem suspension


    Now some work begins ;p




    Putting it away for now, till next time!

    Just awesome!
    I like your choices, top quality work and have no clue what suspension setup your going to come up with.
    This really makes me want to do something similar. (Or better yet, try to ...)
