    I like that truck
  5. It's been awhile. Here's some photos of progress. I was going to clear coat the faux-patina but decided to just cut and polish instead. The next owner might want to take the very solid and straight body and give it a good paint job so not clear coating it will make it easier. I'd cut the front half of the truck when these were taken..
  6. Creating some "patina". The paint is pretty bad on the truck so I decided to try making a patina. Learning as I'm going but I think it might turn out okay. The paint is so thin I'm able to use acetone and a scratch pad to take the paint off. Will rust the exposed metal and clear coat the entire truck.
  7. Rolled my first project into the garage. Non-BMW but I have to get this roadworthy and sold so I can get to my BMW projects...

    Upholstery recommendations

    A few friends have used Paco's in Roseville over the years for classic car stuff but I don't know how expensive that are.

    Thanks for the response - Looks like Yig's is permanently closed as of February this year. Bummer!

    Upholstery recommendations

    at the recommendation of another local 02er, i used Yig's (8166 14th Ave.) off of Power Inn. discussion here: www.bmw2002faq.com/forums/topic/188331-upholsterer-sacramentonorth-bay-area/?tab=comments#comment-1150066
  11. Earlier this year I parted out a 320is and kept the important parts including a set of Recaros which are in serious need of a reupholster. Does anyone have a preferred upholstery shop in the area who might be able to address these seats? Slowly picking this car apart one project at a time...

    You definitely have put a lot of work in it. But when it's all done, it will be well worth it
  17. Man, this garage work is going so slowly it's killing me but I'm finally about one hour's worth of work about from painting the walls! I have to keep reminding myself that it's a 60 year old garage and it's just going to be a work space.

    Absolutely
  19. During the week after 5:30 or on the weekends. Let me know...

    Turning out pretty good. Yeah it's pretty warm today, be sure to drink lots of water. I need to stop by there one of these days to get the full display of the paint booth😁
  21. 102deg outside and putting up drywall on the ceiling. Yee haa! I'm still recovering, but I managed to get all the panels up. I'm still trimming and adjusting but I'll be throwing mud on it this week. The hardest part is over...
  22. Insulation in, drywall going back up, starting to look like something is getting done... BTW, you can't not notice the "mural" on the wall about the 49'ers and Broncos. 1990 Superbowl. I'd say this place needed a facelift!
  23. Something to show.... sort of. My time has been diverted to a backyard project at home, gotta keep the wife happy! I've been working on the garage before work and at lunch so progress is slow. Soon I'll be at it full speed again.... Getting some insulation up...
