No more track work for this one Nick. Keeping my eyes peeled for a suitable track toy!


Details.... all new petrol flap and filler hardware. Decal is the first of many 1st class reproductions by pukardesigns.com.


The best part of six hours work to get the original headlining back in with a result i was happy with.


All of the shadow line trim has been painted in the correct satin black, Both doors have been fitted with their trims, complete new rubber seals and original glass.

Apologies for the lack of updates! Its been a hectic few months running BMR but progress has been made.




The metal brake and fuel pipes that were fitted to BMW's of this period were an olive green and when you buy new replacements from BMW they are now black.... which wont do.

Using a pipe that hadn't rusted badly, i got a tin of paint colour matched to the original to give the new pipes a coat. Fitted up with new metal clips gave a result im happy with,




The original 55ltr fuel tank despite being solid and not leaking was not in great shape so a new one was bought and painted in the correct satin black finish, New hoses and fittings were added before mounting with freshly plated bolts.



The original fuel filler neck was blasted and painted in the correct satin black and fitted up with new connecting hoses and clips plus the grommet connecting it to the additional 15ltr tank in the luggage compartment.


The trailing arms rear beam blasted and painted in satin black before.....


being fitted up with all new bushes, bearings and the rebuilt LSD.


Some of the nuts, bolts etc electro plated in the original finish used to refit the rear axle and other parts.


Brake pad sensor wiring for the nearside front and offside rear tends to perish and break up. On some of the Japanese import E30's ive seen this rubber outer insulation has completely broken up and fallen off.


Luckily this section of wiring loom is available new from BMW so both ends replaced.
