This is making me want a red BMW.
Keep up the great work!
Thanks. There has been times where I felt like selling mine when doing projects like this.
Work with old BMW has kept going.
Paint in the bonnet was showing age it was like rough sand paper, I tried polishing it in the spring without much luck so old paint wet sanded down with 600 grit, filled some small indentation from stone or possibly ice block and spot primed with epoxy:
Otherwise it's looking like a car, nearly everything put together:
Layer of dust everywhere but bonnet in fresh paint waiting for final stage of color sanding and polishing:
great result. well done.
Really nice work mate. Inspired me to start my E46 Touring
Nice to hear about inspiration I appreciate it a lot.
Made a DIY strut brace for E36. Using 3 mm steel and 25 mm tubing, welded with TIG. Bolt holes were recessed with simple steel plate dies and hydraulic press.
Took few pics after spray can paint job:
I had an E36 1.9 petrol I think it was.
Drove it for 259,000 miles.
Aircon pump failed, other than that, it was 100% reliable using just consumables.
Apart from the knackered seat bolster, it looked and drove like new.
