    That kid who crashed his E30. Repair Thread!

    As requested I am making this thread to document the repair process on my 91' 318i. I will try and link the original crash thread at the bottom when I get acess to my computer.

    3/20
    Got my car back from my dads friend who was doing body work to it. He did such a great job. I did find out one thing from him though. My car that has been "Garage stored (according to past owner) " it's whole life and apparently had nice condition "original paint" has actually been repainted at some point.






    The paint is matched great and once I get a bumper and valance the car should be back to looking great again. Still unsure on the electrical problem I'm seriously hoping that plugging all the missing lights back in will fix them. If not I have a whole new mess on my hands.

    A HUGE thank you to "staszek" for the free mirrors. I really appreciate it!

    Oh and here is what I have been driving the whole time my e30 has been crashed.
    (Sorry for night picture)

    It's a 5 speed manual and holy crap is it fun to drive. It makes me actually want a mini really bad. It is so so so fun to drive.

    Did you damage my old wheels? Just curious.

    Glad you're fixing her. Will be interested to see what comes of this.

      No I can't run the Kopis in the winter they shit they put on the roads here (for snow) would eat them alive. They are just fine other than 2 center caps falling off which really pissed me off considering that they are $60 a piece.

        Ah yes, I remember you telling me that. The caps have little slots on one of the teeth, just line that up with the slot in the wheel, and tap it on, you have to be kind of aggressive with it, but it'll go on and stay on then.

          Bumper is all painted and ready to go, just wanting on a few parts from ECS and the car will back to 100%.

          Replaced fuses and messed with a few wires and the whole electrical system is fine. Everything works again.

              Everything works again. I have a 5k offer on the table for the car. Not sure what I will do with it.
