Pictures of some chassis work and rust repair, its honestly sad to show what the previous owner's have done to this car over the years, missing panels, bondo frame rails, hiding rust with rocker guard...

Well, here are some updates of some of the fix's.

Fuse box surround



Brake duct holes filled



Misc drilled holes in the upper rad support and strut towers











Driver floor being replaced with panels from Restoration Design in Guelph Ontario.



Under the dash there were some spotty areas that needed some attention also



And here is a sneak preview of the manifold we are building for our Targa Newfoundland street car, billet on billet.

We finished that car last winter for a client in MI who wanted to do the transaction on eBay, it was sold prior to the listing and for quite a bit more.

Well it's been a while since I've posted but we have been very busy

I'll just leave these here...

Here are some close ups of the paintwork before cutting and polishing, some areas will need more attention then others but overall we think it turned out great!



We went with Toyo 205/50/15 R888's to compliment the cars heritage, and thought they would be the best match to stay true to BMW's motorsports roots.







We decided to go with the Wurth High Build Undercoat and full white bottom after the car was completely stripped to metal to return it to its original look with a bit of OEM plus improvement.

With the addition of some aerospace sound deadening similar to Singer Vehicle Design and some strips of Superlite Dynamat for tricky areas, this should keep the rattle and vibrations down quite a bit.





The interior of the trunk received the same Wurth coating but only sprayed in the areas where the OEM would have done, leaving the spare tire and rear section free and clean.

10 Picture LIMIT - Post Continued

There was not much body work needed on the outside of the shell as it was already fairly rust free, but we wanted a fresh base to apply the Wurth coating around the rockers and on the front spoiler.





















Updates soon thanks for looking!

Haha that one just landed on our planet, barn find, been off the road since 1992, 76,000 miles, rare 5spd V8, rust free underbody, needs some TLC but will probably go into the owners collection after it gets sorted.

Sweet. A friend of mine has a 5-spd 928 S4, it's a cool car for sure!

What's the number for the barn find hotline? lol

Hey Guys, starting with the chassis today we used Superlite Dynamat material to keep weight down and prevent unwanted vibration and noise in the cabin.

We covered the areas where the factory sound deadening was as well as some other areas we felt the car might benefit from. We will also be using thicker material under the driver and passenger feet, and rear of the car so the carpet forms better when it is fitted back in the vehicle.









Rear struts and rubber spring mounts in, tomorrow I will get the car on a hoist and start to assemble the rear subframe and driveline to go back in.
