  1. Painted the underside of the hood and decklid. I need to get more paint for the rest of the car and want it to be all the same "mix".
  2. This one would need to be seen in person. Low res photos, not enough photos, blah blah. Copart has sales guys that hit up shops and try to get them to sell cars through them. I would guess that's the case here, or if the shop is familiar enough with it they may be trying to get to the overseas market using Copart. Could be a nice car but either way I think the high bidder will have to negotiate a deal with a high reserve.
  3. More patching.... Almost done with sheet metal work. I'll glaze this before finish sanding and the hood is almost ready for paint.
  4. Since a lot of the car is taken apart I've decided to keep going on the body and paint until I'm done. The suspension will be last now. I did my first ever metal patch on the quarter panel and I'm actually okay with it. I'm not super proud but I think it was work good over the years to come. I did realize I should've cut a little lower in the metal since it was a little thin and blew through in that area. Still have a ways to go on this quarter panel but the rest of the car is almost ready for paint. In the first photo, that part that looks like rust is actually the seam sealer that was put in from the trunk side. All that got cleaned out before welding and it's probably the reason it rusted in that area in the first place. The wheel arch to the right of the photo has been welded and is solid. The "pin holes" are low spots between welds.
  5. Making a pass at the body work to "rough it out" I guess. Hammer and dolly, filler, power sanding with 80 grit and some primer. I'll come back to the final body work when I'm ready to paint and do it all at the same time. I got the suspension pieces out and will start figuring out the adapters for the struts first. Should be fun...
  6. @rceldib I noticed you're in L.A. Do you happen to know the guys building E9 coupes with Tesla running gear? Might be good to meet them.... https://e9coupe.com/forum/threads/1974-bmw-cse.29796/ https://e9coupe.com/forum/threads/blue-ev-build.32416/ Dan
  7. Starting some body work. I suck at it. The photos make it look better than it is but I'll be patient and keep trying...
  8. A friend got some E46 leather covers from lseat.com ("L" seat) and was very happy with them. He does upholstery and liked their quality. They show covers for 320i sport seats and I'll probably use them for mine when I get around to it.
  9. High bid was $5750. Not sure it sold though.
  10. It's a 76 so maybe it won't go as high in CA. https://www.iaai.com/VehicleDetails?itemid=35714961&RowNumber=1&similarVehicleItemId=&isNext=&loadRecent=true
  11. Huge milestone over the weekend. I moved the car out of the garage and back in under it's own power! It's been at least 25 years since the last time it was driven. I need to bleed the brakes and clutch a little more before driving it on the street. Oh yeah, and I need to find the damn license plate. 🙂
  12. From what you can see it doesn't look that scary. About 20 more photos would be nice, then it's just a matter of price.
  13. That's what I was thinking. I'm never using lacquer again! Maybe the barn it was parked in didn't have a roof.
  14. Welcome! Gazz did it the right way guys, he started his 02 experience with one of the nicest cars around. Buy it, drive it, enjoy it! Bravo! I'm on the other side, four 2002's right now and none on the road.
