Looking foward to see your ride as well!! Great looking E30.

small update for me:
Today I finished Half the interior cleaned, dyed and installed...

Fabric liner is done.. since am removing the old window tint that is now purple I just painted without care of them actually it worked out well since I didnt have to protect the windows..


Some interior pieces done looks so much better in person...





First piece is in...



ALL done... took me over 4 hours to do total..

The interior was beige before (part of RUSTY which is now RIP)

It was. Done everything except a pinhole on a fuel line that runs on top of the fuel tank started to pee some fuel out somewhere. So it's the last thing I need to fix but I want to do it today since I got a plan that will make this like a 10minute fix but it's absolutely pissing down rain (we need it anyways for the new sod). I'm hoping to get it running so I can pop by with it at the E30 meet but it's up in the air right now. Just painting and doing touch ups ect.. making her look somewhat nice.. like since it's raining I polished the rims and tires so when they go back on they will look new. but It's a stand still right now with this weather lol.

$300 tops. Sell it to me.

But really, I don't think they made 325i in '84, only 318i and 325e.

LOL... Hi Rob!! Glad to see your a member and Yes indeed Rusty had LOTS of great parts (doors, hood, trunk, steering wheel, dash...etc..) which is very surprising considering the rest of the frame....needless to say I got my money's worth just in parts which is going into my new shell.

Today was a good day, a lot of stuff done to prepare for me to finally finish the whole inside...


---- Update for today -----


Cracked dash is out ..doors are out... (I will be using Rustys door and dash which are Mint)

Tomorrow, I'm cleaning everything and painting/dye


Danny "DANNYB" stopped by to lend me a hand again... every time he comes over I get 1 week of stuff done in a few hours thanks buddy




Cant wait to finish the interior to move over to under the hood and start having fun

You think there's any way we can custom fab a spot to put those DVD/CD consoles with the nav. in our dash? It uses to cd spots instead of the one, I can't find a flip-up deck at all on futureshop or anything lol. I want to hook a dvd system up in my car so I can play some ghetto stirpper movies while i drive lawl.
