All the cosmetic work has been completed. Have to admit that there was tiny amount of water migration at the lower rear driver side fender lip. A 2 x6 inch section was cut out and replaced. There was also a paint crack at the base of the passenger side B pillar which was stripped and welded.
Currently replacing the old Bimmer Parts Co. carpet with a German square weave from GAHH. The old carpet will live on in a friend's Malaga 2002.
Font seats are at the upholsterer and rear seats will be delivered tomorrow for new pads.
Bumpers are being sent out to be re-chromed at a different plating shop.
Original 2-piece dash and glove box are at Just Dashes in Van Nuys CA, quote to restore and recover and ship back is $2541.00 and should be completed mid-April 2019. So I will most likely keep the 1-piece dash currently in the car for the 2019 driving season.
