Project 326i

Post by pic » Mon Apr 01, 2013 12:12 am

Hi for everyone. I'm start this project almost exactly 3 years ago. I want to introduce myself, and my car, listen and enjoy. :mrgreen: I'm Gergő from Hungary, and my project car is a moderately rusty 323i with some modifying, but largely remaining in the original shape. I will try to present the story in chronological order, and slowly we get to the current stage. Only patience, please. :mrgreen: So let's start at the beginning of this:

And it continues... After the shocktowers, the next to do is the back panel. I bought repair panel from the Ebay, made by van Wezel. Or what. Its not perfect, but after i took some care of, it was ok. So enjoy it. :lol:
Look, she is smiling. :P

The rear corners redoing was the most difficult job on the whole car. :?

Some minor problem on the left jackstand/floorpan and under the gas pedal.

I doesn't find the after repair pictures from this. :stupidme

Then we covered the car of the side, to take care of the bottom. :bag

Washed that terrible stuff from the bottom. The car's bottom was in pretty nice condition, you can see the factory color under it.

Hey - good work. Never seen those kind of restoration methods before, but that's not to say they're not effective I'm sure!

Yes, I could say it was quite nomadic working, but the only way to go without a workshop. :lol:
