    Hello all again as I promised in my introduction I would post on my progress with a e28 I rescued from a drive a few weeks back so I bought this as a none running car as it had sat since 2006 not moved or started got it home washed it 3 times over came up quite nice first impressions I was very happy looked very straight honest car I think being under the car port all them years saved it more from the rust more than if it was left out in the elements so I then changed the oil oil filter plugs air filter fuel filter battery I hand cranked the car over engine was free I then thought I wonder lol turned the key she fired right up unbelievably ran sweet as a bit Smokey at first put that down to the oil I put down the cylinders just in case the engine was ceased and the cracked inlet rubber was not helping that was me happy as big simile I knew I'd not brought a wrong en so more checking over sills solid arches solid floor solid suspension tops solid boot floor solid inner front doors not so solid the door bottoms are really good but when I checked the inner part near the hinges behind a bit black seal looks like the door skin is coming away I reckon I can save them cut out the rust and plate will need to look into this more I bet front doors are few and far between now days I've now stripped down the front end for cam belt water pump thermostat ect what I will say is they are nice and easy to work on which makes a change the front end I'm going to strip back the surface rust and paint around the headlights grill and rad ect I've got new discs calipers on order the shock have seen better days looking into lowering it slightly so springs and shocks if you could point me in the right direction where and who I think I'm going to to have to replace the brake lines I'm changing the brake hoses any way not looking forward to that also the alternator was all over the place found to be the bushes to have melted or disintegrated can i buy them from anywhere? then try her for an mot see what happens after that I will start looks into a body work there's a couple of things that need to be addressed ie the roof it's solid no leaks with the sunroof but the paint has crazed/lots of scratches which I can't make good/recover what is your thoughts on a black roof I could have it wrapped in vinyl affect or would this look naff your thoughts welcome more progress to come with lots of pictures too
