PostSubject: The Silver Project **R.I.P??**   Wed Jul 11, 2012 2:51 am

Hi guys, Hope this is the right place to have a build thread.

I only aquired the car yesterday and it seems to be in good condition, bit of bubble rust above the windscreen, and some dodgy arch work on drivers side due to previous owner rolling the arches to accomdate 17" rims.

Needs a fog light and a patch on rear arch looks to have been repaired and sprayed badly. It has also been sat in someones garden for a while so is accomodating some moss and algee in places.

Currently has 16" wheels but the rest looks to be standard at the moment.

This is her when i brought her......



Stage 1 : Clean her and Tidy up - Fix Simples

Replace missing bulbs in interior lighting, fix boot carpet (messy), T-cut some of scratches out, Replace fog light or bulb, find replacement rear light as small chip to the corner.

This is her today looking a bit more sprightly but pictures didnt come out too great as phone camaera sucks Sad

















Hope to get some stuff done over next few weeks just need to get paid first Very Happy

Of course it's not a bad buy for that price! The good thing is that you haven't spent too much money on it that you can't start modding and fixing it up!

very nice buy mate, looks like you still have both your fogs so you may just need fog bulbs..

the rest of the car looks good for an 18 year old car.. Laughing

just do a full service on it when you get a chance.

also clear fender lights (from an e11 or an e12) would look nice against the silver paintwork

yeah sorta haha. But don't worry, this is coming from someone who went to the trouble of grafting in BMW tail lights to eliminate the trunk panel!

I would definitely leave the stock tail lights alone, I like those. It is only the front lights that look good, when you switch them for black crystal ones. Really gives a clean, updated look to it. And of course the indicator lights, you want to remove those completely.

My suggestion is to take a look at the DIY area. theres a thread there showing how to create a retro headlights. It will defenitely look good on your car with a black housing. or of course a BZ touring black housing head and clearance lights.
