    This car is awesome, I love just how simple everything is... That 87 Graphite color example was great I like the Blue but your new choice is just as nice. Good luck with all the rust work, I haven't seen a build thread yet with such extensive photos and its actually nice to scroll through them all. Your english isnt bad either! #subscribed

    Thanks! Indeed it's extensive, the reason for that is I think it's interesting to show you how an E12 looks on the inside and outside.

    After long time no updates I got a few, meanwhile i did also a lot of other things but I'm gonna post it when they are completely ready.

    So, I'm gonna pick it up where I last left, did a visit to BMW for ordering panels.
    I got the front from the previous owner but unfortunately it was not the right panel , the hole for the radiator is not correct, probably for a 4 cilinder.

    As you can see:



    Quick testfit:



    And a right rear inner wheelhouse panel, left one I had already:



    Also did a little trip to Netherlands after some secondhand parts:



    And ordered products for the bodywork, welding primer, antirust primer, sealer kits and underbody coating:



    Cut some other panels out too:



    Then some rust repair:



    Cut out:



    Buyed a bunch of metal of another E12 to had the correct form for the repair panel:



    Cut out what I need but the rust devil attacked it too:



    Repaired:



    Welded in, do not pay attention to the weldings, this is the first time that I do bodywork:



    Weldings grinded flat:



    Primered (also the edges with welding primer but not a pic of it) :



    Treated the engine supports while it was open:



    And extra protection with underbody coating, grey is welding primer:




    New panel:



    And welded in:



    Till next time!

    @ Suburuuh: Dank u!

    Some more body updates, removed the glue of the sound isolations and kit on both wheelhouses in the engine bay:



    (call me a freak )







    then to the splash wall, at the bottom there was a little hole, cut it out and welded it up on the inside:




    above the steering column there was much more rust:







    the whole wall rustfree:




    inside the car same story:




    little repair on the frame rail:





    many more rust attack will follow!

    Effective and later on a fundamental good base for a build up!

    Chrome is always so effective!

    Good luck on your home (build) and looking forward to next year!

    Itís a long time ago I posted something here but the break on the build is much more longer of I thought. There was a lot more work on my home of expected but the good news is I still have this car and it doesnít leave my garage until it's completely finished. It is tickling hard to start back again at the project. A couple of months ago I lost my Alfa, somebody drove into it and the car was a total loss . Some pics of the Alfa:






    A quick vid of the E12 before I moved it to my home:

    sorry about your Alfa ... but that means you get to play with a new daily driver! Looking forward to see more updates on the E12 if that is still happening.

    Car looks good!

    Mind if I ask what you paid for all that chrome work?

    Damn it, such a shame for the Alfa, it was real clean!

    Great work on the BMW, even if it's scary a bit, since someday I will have to do the same...


    PS: ditch the Solex, buy a Weber, trust me.

    Can't find the bill anymore but was between 300 and 400 euro, not so cheap but the result is perfect!

    Thx and good luck with yours! Yeah, I'm thinking to put a triple Weber on it but that are far future plans cause the lack of money, you know. The first plan was to keep the engine bay OEM but meanwhile I changed my mind and I'm going for a clean engine bay which is much more nice with triple Webers ofcourse.
