From Eyesore to Heat Score - Brent's Build
4 Attachment(s)
Hi Everyone,

Well, I guess an E30 is never 'done', but now that my car is painted and put back together, I wanted to show my build and progress.

Here are some pics of the car when I first got it (they're actually the pics out the seller's ad). Check out all the rust by the wheel wells, rear valance, and even the colour of the rims, not to mention the seats!

Ok, here is the car in various stages of the build, you can get a pretty good idea of what I was dealing with...

This is the first car I ever worked on. Yes, I painted it with rattle cans! I fixed and changed so many things, I'm not even going to bother listing them all. This has probably been one of, if not the most gratifying projects I have ever completed. Thanks for looking, and for those of you cruising tomorrow, see you there!

hahaha wow! thats frickin awesome man!
I remember you from the e30 cruise last year, wicked job Brent.

Brent 05-16-2010 06:17 AM

Thanks, Dave. In case anyone at the cruise doesn't remember, my car was the half red, half primer job...check the pictures from the fall cruise, there's 49 really nice looking e30's, then mine!

Great looking car. ARe you able to post pictures of your metal repair work?

Awesome Brent! I can't believe you painted that with rattle cans!!!

Sick job man.. I'm in the same boat as you. Have so much work to do but I'm having a blast just getting it finished. Looks awesome!
