so this is the e36 that i picked up for really really really cheap.
it needs some work but the under body is very clean and the only rust infecting the alp wiesis sedan is surface. The car is a 5 speed, it has about 300,000km all original. The interior looks like its from 1995 its immaculate! So this weekend i started on the surface rust. sanded and used a steel brush to get as much of the rust off as i could. i spent 3 hours Saturday claying the car, with an aggressive clay. all of the rust specks were removed. i also cleaned the e36 bottle cap style rims. here are a few pics of my project. i am keeping the car all original except for maby a zhp shift knob
as you can see in the pics the portion under the trunk was cleaned of surface rust. prepped with rust killer then painted with an enamel rust paint. the shade is slightly off but it doesn't bother me it looks a hell of allot better then it did before. and all of the rust streaks on the trunk lid were removed using the clay
