Re: '91 318iS minor resto.. ;-)

Great rebuild thread, share the comments of the guy above, though not his choice of words ;)

I'd love the OEM look also (chrome kidney grill), but maybe "concourse fetishist" is a better term.


Cheers,
Terry

Coupe Sports leather interior, oxblood?

Morning,

Anyone got an Oxblood Sports interior for an E30 Coupe? Had that combo in an E28 once (standard trim I think, with metallic black/shadwline trim), looked great.

Also can you supply a 3rd price not including the middle or rear section?

I sorted a bonnet like that recently, did it by hand with G3 compound. Tip from a detailer I know was to first wipe the surface with thinners. With a proper mop it would've been quicker but a few hours work had it sorted (944 bonnet, probably similar size to an E30)
