    Default CAtuned E28 build #2

    I recently acquired a 1982 E28 from CAtuned.
    This car is a euro car imported some time ago, and a rare slicktop. It started as a 520i, but i got it as a rolling shell and have no intention of finding another old m20.
    This car is being built by me over at CAtuned and is their second E28 build right now.
    The car did have some front end damage, and here are pics of when i got it, during, and after the damage was repaired.
    Either one of us will be updating this so stay tuned.

    We found the car in LA. Our buddy John called us up and we had to save it.
    All euro Car. Slick top with manual windows was too hard to pass up.
    113,000 Kilometers/ M20 2.0 engine, 4 speed Manual.

    Car was picked up winter time. Late at night. Cold, Windy and Rainy.
    I think at the time it fit the car well considering the sad sight.

    Hey all sorry for the lack of progress. School and work had me busy, but now there should be weekly updates on the car. First was new undercoating on the front. The fenders were off so i figured it would be a good time. Next was to get the engine bay ready, after seeing Missblue, the estoril e30 Catuned built i liked the idea of bedlining the engine bay. It creates a durable rust proof coat that makes all powdercoated parts really pop.

    This is gonna be goooooooooood. catuned builds never disappoint. Never thought manual windows and no sunroof would be desirable haha. But this car is a great start.
