    Story time.

    With only about ten coupes in all of Faroe Island. Yes you read that correctly, only ten. When one pops up for sale, its important to take the chance. I've bin trying to get a hold of one for about a year.

    This one was bought from a friend, that hit a wall with it, smashed the front end on the right side so it needs a bit of work. Its a 320i mauritusblau.

    Plan is
    -New hood (ordered)
    -New front fenders (ordered)
    -New front bars, that hold the lights (ordered)
    -New cross bar (ordered)
    -New bumper (ordered)
    -Misc parts (ordered)
    etc etc, all bought from a BMW dealership.
    -Full respray

    Mods that i have.
    Stance|Works zero clearance coil overs
    AC Schnitzer Type I racing
    Vorshlag camber plates
    E46 M3 rear shock mounts
    Z3 rear shock plates

    Picture time.

    DSC00774 by Djurhuus zic, on Flickr
    Damage.


    DSC00775 by Djurhuus zic, on Flickr
    Picture of the damage. Drove it like that across town. Even got stopped by a police man, we talked about 10-15mins, then he let me drive off. gotta love the cops here. Wheels are brocks b1's.


    DSC00776 by Djurhuus zic, on Flickr

    Need to replace the control arm.


    DSC00785 by Djurhuus zic, on Flickr
    I spy


    DSC00783 by Djurhuus zic, on Flickr
    Some before and after, take a wild guess on what is the after.


    DSC00782 by Djurhuus zic, on Flickr


    DSC00788 by Djurhuus zic, on Flickr
    Parts car, you make know it from build thread v2
    Gonna use the control arm, that is about it. Tho using the front end parts to line up my car, then they are getting replaced with brand new oem parts.


    DSC00789 by Djurhuus zic, on Flickr
    Parts taken off, car is headed for the scrapper.


    DSC00792 by Djurhuus zic, on Flickr
    got the car on its front wheels, replaced the bent control arm. started doing the rear hand break.


    DSC00793 by Djurhuus zic, on Flickr


    DSC00804 by Djurhuus zic, on Flickr
    rear breaks done, time to test fit the wheels. No rear camber was adjusted.


    DSC00795 by Djurhuus zic, on Flickr


    DSC00797 by Djurhuus zic, on Flickr

    Car up in the bench, you lock the car to the bench, then you take a measuring sled, slide it under. afterwards you build up these measuring points, shown in the next picture.
    You can also see how of the right side is.


    DSC00791 by Djurhuus zic, on Flickr
    shown here, are the measurements, you set up a zero point, and everything works of there. You can either chose the front or the rear, in this case its the rear that is gonna be the zero point.


    DSC00817 by Djurhuus zic, on Flickr
    with everything setup, its time to start pulling. you can see those vertical bars in front of the car, those are measuring points, you can see the right side not lining up.
    When the chain is tight and pulling the metal, you need to bash it with a hammer, to take out the stress in the metal.


    DSC00818 by Djurhuus zic, on Flickr


    DSC00819 by Djurhuus zic, on Flickr
    test fitting the bar that hold the lights.


    DSC00823 by Djurhuus zic, on Flickr
    why stop there right?


    DSC00821 by Djurhuus zic, on Flickr


    DSC00827 by Djurhuus zic, on Flickr
    time to protect the bare metal.


    DSC00828 by Djurhuus zic, on Flickr


    DSC00829 by Djurhuus zic, on Flickr
    starting to work the rear fenders.


    DSC00830 by Djurhuus zic, on Flickr

    Working the fender, since last photo i took a "insert correct word" and bent the metal down, afterwards went to work with a wire wheel, got all of the bmw oem sealer out, then sprayed it with red rust stopper / converter.


    DSC00842 by Djurhuus zic, on Flickr
    Here you can see how large the fender lip is, Its NOT like that oem, its slanted up normally.


    DSC00845 by Djurhuus zic, on Flickr
    Filled the edge with shit loads of body sealer.


    DSC00847 by Djurhuus zic, on Flickr
    started hammering them, whilst holding another hammer on the out side, to prevent the outside metal moving to much.


    DSC00846 by Djurhuus zic, on Flickr
    here you can see how much flatter it is, and its not even fully hammered.


    DSC00848 by Djurhuus zic, on Flickr
    after the hammering was done, put on another layer of sealer.


    DSC00831 by Djurhuus zic, on Flickr
    got the center back from the painter.


    DSC00832 by Djurhuus zic, on Flickr


    DSC00833 by Djurhuus zic, on Flickr
    ready for sealer, used window sealer.


    DSC00834 by Djurhuus zic, on Flickr
    sealer on.


    DSC00836 by Djurhuus zic, on Flickr
    got the lips on, and tightened down. no good picture, but you can see the sealer here.


    DSC00835 by Djurhuus zic, on Flickr
    one more picture because i like this one.


    DSC00862 by Djurhuus zic, on Flickr
    got the tire on, and started test fitting.


    DSC00860 by Djurhuus zic, on Flickr


    DSC00856 by Djurhuus zic, on Flickr


    DSC00854 by Djurhuus zic, on Flickr
    the man that owns the garage, he got my back, if i mess something up.


    DSC00851 by Djurhuus zic, on Flickr


    DSC00855 by Djurhuus zic, on Flickr


    DSC00867 by Djurhuus zic, on Flickr
    this is a picture with the rear spring in, its a 5" without adjuster and pads. this is gonna be close to the final ride height.


    DSC00865 by Djurhuus zic, on Flickr
    this is why you need shorter shocks, this is a oem shock not compressed.


    DSC00866 by Djurhuus zic, on Flickr
    fully compressed. Its on the bump stop.
    it would hinder me from going lower, and it would ride like a doo doo. would be bouncing on the bump stops.

    enough picture whoring for the moment. will post more, as progress goes on.

    Thanks for the kind words.
    Dont have the brocks, one was bent when he crashed the car.

    Got the other fender done, and sealed the front of the car.


    DSC00871 by J.Djurhuus, on Flickr
    A before picture, cant see the measuring tho its about 13-15mm


    DSC00868 by J.Djurhuus, on Flickr


    DSC00872 by J.Djurhuus, on Flickr
    mmm rust.


    DSC00875 by J.Djurhuus, on Flickr
    You can see from my thumb to the vertical part of the fender. Is a thick part of oem bmw sealer, when they rolled the fender before. they did not remove it, thus the fender being 15mm thick.


    DSC00876 by J.Djurhuus, on Flickr


    DSC00877 by J.Djurhuus, on Flickr
    started with the wire wheel.


    DSC00879 by J.Djurhuus, on Flickr
    getting cleaner.


    DSC00878 by J.Djurhuus, on Flickr
    cleaned, ready for rust stopper / converter.


    DSC00880 by J.Djurhuus, on Flickr
    sprayed.


    DSC00881 by J.Djurhuus, on Flickr
    found more rust were the rear bumper sits, what a perfect time to fix it.


    DSC00883 by J.Djurhuus, on Flickr
    started sealing the front. while the rear fender dried.


    DSC00882 by J.Djurhuus, on Flickr


    DSC00884 by J.Djurhuus, on Flickr
    smeared the body sealer were i removed the oem bmw sealer off. the oem sealer was removed off to do some metal work.


    DSC00885 by J.Djurhuus, on Flickr
    i also removed the sealer of on the right side, to inspect for rust. and there was non. So it got resprayed and sealed.


    DSC00886 by J.Djurhuus, on Flickr
    smearing the old rust spot.


    DSC00887 by J.Djurhuus, on Flickr
    here i have already smeared it on the inside fender lip, and formed the fender lip like a U. you can see how nicely the filler is in there, i inspected and decided to put more sealer in.


    DSC00888 by J.Djurhuus, on Flickr
    fender hammered flat. You can see the sealer got up and above the lip.


    DSC00889 by J.Djurhuus, on Flickr
    more sealer applied.


    DSC00890 by J.Djurhuus, on Flickr
    and smeared out.


    DSC00891 by J.Djurhuus, on Flickr
    fender is about 4-6mm now, success.


    DSC00893 by J.Djurhuus, on Flickr
    Who ever said progress is a slow process, wasn't talking about me. I'm a p i m p

    Great job. Nice to see I'm not the only one who had to bend his fenders back and scrape out the sealing crap to get maximum clearance, lol.

    You're doing great there. Can't wait to see where this goes.

    Will the car get repainted once you're done with all the body work? What color?

    Got a loads of pictures to upload, but flicker wont allow me, keeps saying i need to upgrade the account, or else i wont be able to see the last 200 pictures, does anyone know if i can keep uploading, and my old pictures that i have already uploaded and linked in my thread will still be showing?

    thanks

    Singed up on photobucket, so more pictures hurrrrrray.


    The driver side had a rip.


    bought some thread, no idea what kind it is. the girl at the shop that it should last for a bit, strongest thread they had.


    threading.


    I doubled the thread, and first threaded all the way up, then down again.


    Not perfect, but way better than before.


    the windows would not slide properly, and you e36 owners know this infamous plastic clips.


    four in a package.(enough for two windows)


    old vs new.


    the left side fender, picture is taken from inside of the fender well. tired to show the clearance.


    its not gonna be that close, was just testing the wheel travel, it did not rub at that point.


    still not rubbing.


    this is close to were its gonna sit.


    started sealing up the other wheels.


    sealant.


    checking the bottom of the car, i found this hole. think its from scraping the undercoating off, and then water forming there.


    started with the wire wheel, and just saw more and more rot. i could see that the metal was not worth much.


    then i pulled the seat out, and pull out the carpet. ouch. so much for thinking that the car was rust free. tho better that i found out now then later.


    woops.


    my hand slipped.


    stated prepping for welding.


    made a ""mold"" of paper. and cut it out of steel.


    started hammering it, getting it to shape.


    stated tacking it into place.


    fully welded up, and sprayed it with rust protector / converter. (i almost sat fire to the gas tank, whilst welding. lucky for me that i got the fire out.)


    under side.


    sealed the edges.


    sealed.


    then sealed everything, also did it on the bottom side.


    got loads of parts in.


    m bumper.
    right and left fender.
    nose panel.
    the ting that holds the lights.
    the bar between the front frame.
    window seals.
    80degree thermostat. (fan delete mod)
    82degree fan switch (fan delete mod)
    and misc other parts. all OEM bmw from the dealer.


    mocked the parts up.


    test fitting.


    test fitting.


    pulled the bumper off, to get the hood / nose / fenders to fit 100%.


    mm starting to come together.


    okey, this seems a bit risky. its on four beer cases and wood planks. Did not have time to take more pictures, but the huge bench were the car was bolted to, was removed then manouved the lifter under the car, removed the boxes then lowered the ground.


    success.


    back in its hole.

    Scary stuff. Happened to my dad over a decade ago. The whole garage burned down. Nearly 40.000 DM damage.

    Love the progress, I have a feeling this thing is going to be pretty epic once it's done. Although I must admit to not really looking forward to the color, I'm not really a fan of Mauritiusblau. But I'll reserve judgement until the car's done. I can imagine that with the polished wheels, the color will look great.

    Sorry to hear that Dr.Ak.
    I dont really know about the color to be honest, but it will work out nicely i hope.
    Thanks bhups

    Not many pictures taken yesterday. Tho the car had a strange noice thuuuuuuuuuub thuuuuuuuuuuuuub thuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuub, not a metallic clicking sound.
    so i took the coils of, and one spark plug was loose. tightened it up and the sound was gone.


    spark plugs out, you can see how dirty they are. Full of oil leaking valve cover gasket. Maybe you can spot a little other ting.


    yup, there it is. the plug that was lose, you can see how the "claw" that comes down. is missing. so i got really happy about that.


    changed the valve cover gasket.

    between this and the other picture, i did a few tings.
    -thermostat 80c (clutch fan delete mod)
    -aux fan switch. 82c i think it was. (clutch fan delete mod)
    -new spark plugs.
    -cleaned the spark plug holes of dirt / oil.
    -bleed the cooling system of air.
    -installed the carpet and seat back in.
    -installed the rear and front lights.


    front assembled.
