1971 BMW 2002 Full Rebuild.
After sitting in a shed for the last ten years this car is in for a full strip down and rebuild.
Engine bay looking a little tired.
Strip down begins.
Mounted to a trolley.
Front panel is removed and paint strip begins.
New front panel fitted, wings and doors trial fitted.
Genuine BMW panels used.
Starting to cut out the rust.
New panel in place.
Next onto the rust in the front floor / bulkhead.
Onto the lower rear wing area- rusted area cut away.
New panel clamped in place.
And welded in.
Front lower rear wing / sill.
Passenger sill had rotted around the trim mounting holes but was otherwise in great shape with just a little surface rust, so localised repairs are carried out.
Passenger side floor / bulkhead had been plated previously and required similar repairs to the drivers side.
Once finished the underside is coated with epoxy mastic and then an anti-stonechip coating ready for paint.
