Nice one, I bet you're well chuffed!

Beware of the scuttle - they're most likely brazed panels, meaning you can't MIG or TIG weld new pieces in place - you'll have to braze new bits in over the top of existing brazed joints.

Get some pitures up ASAP! :D

Yes, Tony is THE man for E12 stuff!

I would ask for pics as well, but I'd be a hypocrite as I've done sod-all about posting pics of what Tony is doing to my car! (Also an E12 M535i). :oops:

What he's done to my car is art & in a way it was a shame to cover it in paint! :lol:

:D got the e12 recovered on friday i had some free time so decided to give it a quick wash and see if all the crap comes of has come out pretty good henna red is now my favourite colour :lol: it really does look cool, havent fired it up yet need to get a new battery and some fresh fuel not to worried about that at moment had a good lock around most of the panels will need replacing arches look solid only visual rust is on n/s wing and scuttle panel on drivers side need to get it on a ramp and give the underneath a good inspection the car is totally standerd even has its original cassette player :shock: seats are clean apart from light bolster wear on drivers seat.

plans are strip it down get all rust issues sorted full repaint replace rusted panels replace anythng that needs to be and freshen it up new chrome trim lights rubber seals see how it goes but is gona be a long one :)

The Initial pics look very promising, and a nice number plate too, I'm sure you already know this but E12's rust everywhere below the roof, so be very thorough in your examination, and beware that the original underseal can do a great job of holding all the rust together until poked with a blunt instrument.

But as a general rule of thumb, if your rear arches and sills are solid then chances are the rest of the car should be fairly good

tony the arches are solid had a good poke along sills and seem solid wont know for certain until i get it on the ramp the doors and bonnet will need replacing along with the n/s wing and scuttle cant open boot to see what its like in there as key wont turn the lock the alloys are all good with brand new rubber allround even has its original m535 owners supplement

im sure there will be rust lurking somewhere underneath will have to wait and see
