White 318is H746 JRD project

So, my brother has managed to pick up an e30 318is to replace his current daily driver a rover 75�� so I thought I'd put up a bit of a build/resto thread of how it's going to develop.

I'm no stranger to e30s myself having previously owned 2 of them, one was a 318 auto project I took on and managed to transform into this



And the other was a standard 325i touring that stayed the same untill it went to the scrap yard in the sky due to some serious rot issues

Anyways.

This is the "Bargain 318is he managed to find... under what Rock I don't know, but it's in decent enough condition to see the road once again







Structurally it's pretty sound, there's a bit of rot on the rear balance and the scuttle area, but apart from that, she's decent. Interior is in mint condition, and the engine... well it runs, kind of.

My brother is on somewhat of a deadline as the MOT runs out in October, so this one has to be on the road by then or he's catching a bus to work, so updates should be pretty regular

That's it for now

Unfortunately Photobucket won't allow 3rd party hosting on forums etc anymore.

I'd recommend Flikr, or there are many others that don't have this stupid restriction Photobucket now have
