    Re: Project: BMW E21.

    Nah, further thinking has kept me on the M10.

    The look of this thing is more important to me, than the go of it

    Comes with F1 tolerances and rebuilds unfortunately.

    Could be done to a reliable level quite well though

    I know, hence the

    300bhp is achievable without a lot of work iirc.

    Yeah, turboing is crazy easy, it's a possibility, but one that's a fair way off for now.

    Re: Project: BMW E21.

    Today was a reasonably productive day, I wanted to get the wings off to inspect the inner arches and the chassis behind the wings.

    Gazebo was out in force, due to some pretty minging weather!



    Bonnet roller guides had to come off too:



    Impact gun had the wheels off in seconds, love that thing



    The wings themselves are held on by a fair few bolts, BMW were on the ball making them all 10mm too. Got to love a decent bit of efficiency. Got the wings off and wonderful news, the inner arches/chassis is lovely. It's had some repair work done on the passenger side, but not much





    The wings themselves are ruined, which I knew. They will need replacing before respray day.







    Cleaned up some of the inner arch to check the metal was decent, which it certainly seems to be









    Very happy tbh!

    I lolled when I saw the extent of the hole through to the cabin from the arch!





    The inner arch has a natural 'cavity' which would be a place for years of dirt and moisture to collect, it sits behind the arch and in front of the door. To prevent this buildup, there is a sort of blanking panel that sits at 90 to the wing. It's certainly done it's job, as the 'blanking panel' has severely rotten away, suggesting that if it wasn't for this piece, there would be some pretty awful damage to the shell of the car. These will be replaced for new items, as they are both beyond repair.



    Exciting times!....

    Good to know you've got a fairly solid shell then! Would be a bit of a nightmare if everything was just rotten under there..

    If you're going to underseal it rather than spray it, I'd use that stuff I had - absolutely brilliant tbh!

    Ends up being cheaper to buy 3 tins at once rather than 1 tin three times. It tells you underneath the price, anyway.

    Nice one, what sort of coverage did you get per can?

    I'll be undersealing it for sure, probably better than painting it anyway!

    I used three tins for front end, rear end, two front arches and 1 rear arch. So get 6 if you're planning on doing underneath.

    Re: Project: BMW E21.

    Did some more work today, and uncovered some bad news

    The passenger side jacking point and inner sill has got some extensive rust to it:







    A bit gutted tbh, hoped not to find anything like this, but it's all part of the challenge I suppose. I'll be looking to get a quote for welding and respray over the next month, here's hoping it won't be too much!

    I also removed the chrome trim from the rear and the sides of the vehicle:





    Good progress for the end of the year. Roll on 2013 and the rebuilding stage
