disapr e46m track build

This is a project that I started 10 months ago. Now that the project is mostly complete, I thought I'd share some photos of the process.

First, I'd like to thank my sponsors:

My wife - For being supportive of the project, spending entire weekends working on the car with me & taking/editing the final photos.

Flavius (M3roar) at Morar Industries - For expertly CNC machining all of the one-off parts & tools that I designed for this build.

And then ME, because I did everything else

Also, thanks to: Daniel Macfadden@Momentum BMW & Adam@Hard Motorsport
