Some nice shine there!
Was the rocker trim refinished or natural beauty?

It looks good in pictures. These pieces are original but we’re in good condition. With an unlimited budget all the trim would have been sent out for full polish/rechrome. I couldn’t justify that. They are good pieces though.

It’s been a while since an update. 

Pablo finished the interior a couple weeks ago and it looks great. I have most of the under dash pieces installed ( leaving driver’s side open for the moment)

 

Windshields were installed yesterday, but we had trouble with the rear lockstrip. We will try again on Saturday mornin with some local Coupe expertise pitching in. 

 

Door/window trim and seals are 90% done. 

 

Some pics

The car runs beautifully and the pile of parts is now very small. It should be done just in time for Fall driving weather 😎

Sorry Ray, this car is nicer than any e9 will ever be! I'm bias because the heart of it is so close to a 2002. I also like the front look better in these cars than a e9.

I'm just teasing Ed :)

 

This car is destined to receive many awards.

Good guy Peter met me early this morning and we pulled the rear glass, fettled with the lock strip, Barney showed up just in time and it went straight in. No problem.  😎

So happy to have that done!

Mission accomplished! The list keeps getting shorter.

 

Peter said..." I don't know why you bothered paying that guy, I told you I would help you with these"  😀

 

I worked on more interior trim yesterday and really, I'm down the window felts and squeegees on the doors and rear 1/4 windows.  There's very little else on the pile.  Having said that, the hood needs some minor alignment and the door gaps are not exactly where I want them, but things are very close to done.

I just found this thread. I’m on the last stages of a full rotisserie restoration of one of these. What a project! Still those special small parts to find! Let me know if you’re missing anything. I probably spent 3 days figuring out the wiring for the hazards, then they worked!
