Project: V12 Coffee Table

So as some of you know, I picked up a BMW M70 engine (V12) out of a 750iL around Christmas time.



Well it's been sitting in the garage for the past 6 months, and we decided this weekend would be a good time to start working on it!

Andrea helped me out, which was awesome. We were able to get it almost completely disassembled this afternoon. Once it gets down to the block, I'll send it out to get cleaned, then turn it into a coffee table!

We're building a house this summer, so it will go in the new living room, right in front of the new couch

Andrea and I finally had some more time to work on this today.

We were able to take the heads off as well as the pistons and crank:





Got it down to a bare block:



We also decided to change our game plan a bit. This is what we're going to end up with as a coffee table:
