The E36 BMW has a catch for either side, L & R at the front could you rework a similar system?

You guys are scareing Lee off with these comments about seeing pictures, mostly because he will be reluctant to just post up any random pix, he may end up almost finishing the conversion before he shows anything more, i know i would feel like that.

VR6 box Nik, that driver side CV looks really close to the side of the block, must have taken a long time to get orientation of engine and box right.

Great stuff.
