Jessey's 88' 535i Build

Finally got this car in my possesion after months of waiting on the previous owner to pull it out of storage. The car has been stored for about 9 years, the car was supposidly rebuilt (motor, body and suspension) it has a re spray which looks amazing after 9 years. It even started after 9 year just with a new battery on the rebuild i think it has 80000km or so, but original km is 260xxx. Car seems great, clutch engages properly, brakes work ok (moved back and forth) engine oil is spectacular haha, still golden

Problems ive noticed....
Possible wiring issues. Nothing on dash works. No speedo or tach or fuel or temp... baattery light wrks aswell as e-brake light. Headlight and hi-beams dont wrk and brake lights dont work. Headliner need some repair or gluing, havent tried much else, but it looks great.

Ill be takin pics tmrw as its to dark for anything goood

My intensions for this car are to get everything in working order of course. Then to get a good stance on the car. Probably go with megan racing coilovers like i did in my euro 520i if they sell some for the e28, or might custom install the e34's in the e'28. Pretty sure i want turbo. I have the extra turbo aswell as a couple intercoolers and other parts.

I hope you all follow this (most likely slow) thread and give me some opinions on the build!

ENJOY

picked up some new fluids yesterday... coolant, oil and diff fluid, gunna find a retailer for redline mtf, i had some issues with the electrical, but all it needed was engine ground cleaned up and the fuse box need some cleaning as well, the fuses are oxidized as well as the holders for the fuses. also there is a massive fuel leak right after the external fuel pump underneath the car. might just be a rubber hooose but ill check it out

Very cool. Too bad you didn't keep the interior out of that other E28.
