  1. Hello guys Been a while I haven't updated this thread I know, just been extremely busy with work. Anyways its been almost 5 years and I haven't really done much apart from strip it back and source a few panels for it which involved buying another e12 528 and more recently another e12 m535 in henna red which has seen better days. I'm still looking for a passenger front door so if anyone has one or knows of one please do let me know. The good news is I have found a company (Bodymotorworks) who are based in Chesterfield around 60 miles from home, they have agreed to take the e12 in at end of June. If all goes to plan I will be stripping back the e12 so its just a rolling shell and trailer it down to the guys at bodymotorworks in a few weeks Maybe 2015 is the year for this beauty let wait and see
  2. Well guys its been almost 3 years since i bought the e12 and to be honest not much progress taken place due to new business venture. Anyways thanks to Neil (rh306) for updating you guys, it's his e12 I have seen that has woken me up again. Lol. Since purchasing the e12 back in 2010 I managed to buy another e12 528 which had been stood in a shed for best part of 20 years yet it was pretty solid, had some good bits too which didn't hang around too long. Also had a chap named Ulrich Thieme who Runs e12.de fly over from Germany to buy some parts of the donor car he took around 30 photos of it and then I told him about the m535 he wanted to see it right away. Lol I couldn't refuse as he had come along way, He had a big smile when I opened up the garage to reveal the m535 buried under a load of bags. . Managed to save 3 doors which are clean, scuttle panel, rear light panel, and front driver floor pan, these are all the bits that I will need for the m535, still need to find myself a bonnet, passenger wing and passenger front door I think. Haven't taken much pictures but just for you guys here it is partially stripped Since this pic was taken I stripped out the interior and rest of exterior trims, Will be taking some time out in next few months and get it ready to go into a body shop. More pics will be uploaded pretty soon. Cheers

    Agree with the above i have been a member on there a few years and its a lively place lots of help at hand yes some cars get a good slating but that happens on every forum and always with newbies it takes a little time and understanding to get used to various members and comments.
