My second e30 build/resto. (S52)

Hey guys this is my second e30 that I picked up at the end of December 2012. It's a 89 325i auto with about 200k on it.
I have been around this forum for a while, but haven't been posting much.

Now that I'm back into the whole e30 thing again I wanted to actually start a build thread and slowly update as I go.

Enjoy:


My first e30 that I sold which made me miss e30s so I got a new one!


Just brought her home


Started disassembly








Lil surprise




More rust




As she sits now waiting for new floor pan and few new body panels


The s52 donor car with 125k on it also partial donor of 5 lug conversion


S52 pulled


Also got a set of these

That's it for now will update as I move forward

Denis

This was the car that inspired me for the color choose I made. So now I have a gallon of fresh paint sitting in a box waiting to be sprayed

Said it for me. This is awesome work. I like the intensity of the restore you're going with.
