Long time no update

 

Got both bumpers back from the shop. Front bumper came out nicely.

Side parts on the rear bumper were rusted as hell only chrome was holding them together so after removing chrome there were several holes.  Also I noticed the center piece bumper had several dents which were not seen before chroming. I had the centerpiece dechromed again to sort out dents before another chrome job.

I took apart quarter windows to have it chromed.

Front bottom mount was broken off and with some ingenuity we repaired it.

Mask was laser welded and I got it back from the chrome shop and put it back together. Had grill slots painted in black maybe I will also have slots of mask wrapped in black for that »tii« look. Also door edge trim was broken, laser welded and new chrome applied.

Meanwhile the chassis was transported to the body shop.

I had fenders delivered since I would like to have them a bit wider and metal not plastic. Found the idea on IG and contacted the owner about what fenders he used and bought the same.

Also got some suspension parts from BMW and poly bushings delivered.

Taken apart the pop out mechanism and broke one part doing so. Tried to source it and due to Covid situation and some spare time we simply manufactured it – came out nicely. Had all parts delivered to the chrome shop will post the results.

The future agenda is sourcing used side rear bumper parts and restoring long neck differential. Plan is to have LSD in a long neck differential but what I learned for now it is impossible to source LSD parts that will fit without severe modifications. Also would like to have hanging pedals conversion so will have to do research on this as well.

Looks good! What fenders did you get? The only suitable ones that I've found, which comply with my taste, are from a VW golf mk1. The ones you have look quite similar to that as well. If they are indeed golf fenders, did you get both front and rear fenders or 4x the same and are they coming from the 3 or 5 door?

Niels, I asked guy on IG ˛(@nislasgren02) he has mounted them already. He used Golf Rabbit MK2 rear fenders. So I ordered same 2x rear left and 2x rear right.
