I have a '74 BMW 2002 tii in Fjord Blue that has been in restoration mode for more than two years. It was a good car to start! I've gone through a complete sorting and replacement of all metal that had any sign of rust or had shoddy repair in the past. I've used NOS fenders and body parts where needed and I could find them. I even found a NOS drivers side door to replace the one that had some bondo in it from an accident. The car came from California vis Santa Fe, NM to me with lots of upgrades including 5 speed trans and Euro bumper conversion. I've had a new gas tank installed, lots of new wiring, new gas lines, battery moved to trunk, new pedal box, dash restoration by 'Just Dashes', and so on. The paint work looks great! The engine and transmission are solid. Here's my issue. The shop that did the work does mostly American big block resto-mod type work. They have won national recognition for their work. But, this car is a BMW and needs experienced attention they don't have. The panel gaps are not aligned, the doors don't close properly, the weatherstripping isn't installed correctly, and the interior is really in need of attention. A 'sorting' of the restoration done so far needs to be done and I'm not capable of doing it. I want the car to be a real solid restoration that is high quality and noticeably well done.
I am in Jackson, MS and willing to ship the car to a BMW restoration specialist to complete the work. Any suggestions? I have a lot invested in the car, but finishing it to a high quality restoration is my goal. I understand the cost consideration. I've had high level Mercedes collectibles restored. I just don't know the BMW restoration specialists I should consider.
