    17/9/18 TBL's strip down is complete and is now ready for the paint shop - - We found another couple area's of rust but all is now sorted and ready for the body shop magic we will get the body shop to put their mini camera into the lower rear arch which is original bodywork' to check for rust before the paintwork is started. - - We would rather do metal surgery now than have rust bubbles appearing in the lower rear arches below the little plastic trim in 18 months time (Plus the repair panels are still in stock at BMW) - Comments Welcome.

    F10 door corrosion

    + 1 Even if by some miracle you get the job passed there ...I imagine the job would be pretty poor ( Old car and that crap attitude)

    1994 BMW E34 540I/6 - BK35093

    13/9/18 Today saw the removal of TBL's sunroof steel panel ( Yes metal ... so was a little rusty ) in the final strip down We are not keen on masking items like rubber seals when having paintwork done and the seal was well past it's best. So a new sunroof seal can be added to the BMW shopping list of clips n bits which are always needed after a full strip down & The offending rust on the underneath of the sunroof panel was cleaned using power tools and painted first with Red oxide then Black Hammerite... . I'm happy the rust was found sooner rather than later. We are now awaiting the new driver's side wing. Link To Our Sunroof Removal Tutoriall Comments welcome

    What have you done on your E34 Today

    We removed the sunroof panel this afternoon ready for the body shop ... E34 guy's n gals check those sunroof panels for rust The offending rust was on the interior side of the panel which cleaned up 100 % with our power tools. But could have been a different tale in another 12/18 months of rusting away unnoticed .....

    Bloody women drivers!

    The original title in this post was tongue in cheek ... I believe in this PC world, The Working class man is the most put down (I've edited the comment a little ) and that's a fact That is unless you're one of those none gender/finds everything offense and moans at everything, snowflake Typical Sun reader

    1994 BMW E34 540I/6 - BK35093

    11/9/18 Been spending the odd hour getting TBL down to the bare bones while inspecting the body for rust (TBL does like to rust ) Which resulted in finding a couple of spots behind the front window screen trim. That was soon sorted. We also sorted a little patch under the rear lamp unit which had been filled with filler before ... This will have fresh steel welded in. While the interior trim is out the window guides have been greased so the windows are super smooth again. I'm looking forward to getting TBL back now ... It's like working on a new purchase again. Comments welcome

    Windscreen Replacement

    Very true about the trims ... The fronts normally tend to be worse than the rear trims after removing ... Also, the clips are £2.50 each

    Windscreen Replacement

    I'm pretty sure the screens are the same for all years ... I know the dash tops were updated during 1989 BMW changed the position of the clocks.
