Had the owner let the car get like that or was it a new purchase for them?

The owner had let it get that way. I think the car was really for the missus, and they have a few more, but it kind of fell to the back of the pack so to speak. Weather they sell it now or not is going to depend on her I would imagine lol

We were given a budget and did what we could with it. The prices were all over the place with bits we needed so we took care of the "priorities" so to speak. I don't think for a million years he realised just how good we could et it to look so maybe these are things he looks at should they decide to keep it

Hmm, my OH has let her SLK get that way.

I was planning to attack it over the summer holidays and this has inspired me , although I think I'll need to undertake a bit of eBay action for intact bumpers.

Great work Matt, I like the wet look you achieved.

Did you have any trouble with those dents, the one on the door looked pretty deep.

Small pads and tread carefully. I used heavy foam and m101

No its not you, it just has zero to do with the work we did so I didn't mention it. It had clearly been painted a while back yes

We ended up replacing it with a new one and sending the seller the old one for a discount. He will have it done. The retrimmer that did the sets etc is way up in Scotland

Any history on the car? What's the story?

On another note, Estoril Blue is an amazing colour but the fact that it is now available on the normal range of BMW's cheapens it somewhat in my opinion. Looks so good on stuff like this though
HI AS_BO, Car was bought as a wedding gift 4/5 years ago. Owned by a well known local rally driver. FSH, 82K, Now looking to sell on as family requires a t5.

Cheers,

stevie
