Nice BMW themed desk clock

Recommended Posts

Found this on eBay. The clock is from an E34, and the case is 3D printed. The finish isn’t 100% perfect, but it’s good enough for me. 

 

Runs from a 12v mains adapter, with a switch at the back for the light. I might remove the M badge though!  Would look good leather covered too. 

 

Not cheap - but not many around either. The guy who makes them is a gentleman.

I've still got the TopGear style V8 coffee table I made 4-6-6 years ago - used a genuine Alpina B10 V8S block for it. It needs cleaning up and either flogging or re-using.

 

C'mon then lets see some pics of it.

 

My wife wouldn't allow such things in the house.

I have that issue too.  To be fair to her though, when the two older girls moved out, she let me have the smallest bedroom for a bit of a man cave.  CD, vinyl and cassette collection, car related books, magazine and brochure collections, 1:43 scale cars, old early 90s stereo - all of it goes in there.  It's great!

I'd love to get hold of an original Saab 99 turbo gauge.  It wasn't in the main dash - it was pod mounted, and is ideal for this sort of thing.
