    BMW Car Magazine

    Total BMW was the common man's/woman's magazine ... BMW Car was/is more about selling new BMW's and high end collecting.

    Bulkhead drains

    They do also rust behind the heater unit .. Which results in the heater unit seal being broken and allowing in water. Normally the wiper scuttle is unaffected It's just the bulkhead below the join in the bodywork that is toast ... Once the plastic bulkhead trim is removed you can check with a toffee hammer (normally you can see the bubbles under the stone guard.

    Bulkhead drains

    HI The drains are behind the plastic trim that are fixed to the bulkhead under the front arches … There are two drains per side. The rust/rot normally reaches into the corner where the bulkhead meets the A post. It's best to remove the front carpet and inspect the whole area … It's getting common now Our 540 (TBL) had the same issues and the Nugget also Edit. Give above the pedals a good check and does your E34 have a sunroof ?

    The " Golden Nugget " BMW E34 540i/6T BH15021

    Hi Dave It's been a little annoying really ... We were waiting for the welder to confirm the date of the welding for the Nugget . It went from May to September and then the welder asked for more pictures to remind him of the job. Which at this point the job jumped from £1400 to 2000K and 5 months time lost. The original welder that complete TBL has sadly finished working so was putting our trust in a new lad So the hunt is on for another welder or might just wait until the weather gets better and have a go with our mig. I have been purchasing new suspension and body panels So once started the transformation should be pleasing We have also found a couple of E38's 728's to keep us going One's the winter hack and the others going for sale soon ( Enjoyed France so rot free) I enjoy the pictures you post of the M5 interior ... Hope the fleet is fine
  13. Full BMW respray and under warranty ..

    E39 rusty jacking point

    The best prevention is to remove as much of the rust effected area, and once welded fill the inner sill with a rust proofing product.
