Frankly speaking, before stucco work and primer, I’d have removed the old paint completely.

Since you’re doing an LS swap paint it jetstream blue off the c6 vette! I’m currently looking to LS swap my E30 too so I’m looking forward to using your build as a guide!

Here’s a trick for you to smooth out seam seal Vtuned. Get you a small cup and put some lacquer thinner inside. Put good latex gloves on, and start dipping your finger in the thinner and smooth out the seam seal. Then you can switch to a small brush and do the same. Keep it kinda wet (no pun intended 😉) and you can smooth it out like GLASS if you want!!! Give it a try before you knock it, Because I doubt you will EVER try doing it dry again... PERIOD!!! Hope that helps!! ✌️💯

Always wear a respirator when sanding. A lot of my fellow navy veterans have lung cancer because of this.

brush the chrome trim with steel wool and leave it with a brush finish. spray something to protect it, like clear, but a nice brushed aluminum finish would look great

@18:24 that rattle can crap is only temporary, and gives near zero protection against rust. heck, it literally washes off easily with just a spray of brake cleaner - no scrubbing required. take it into the booth!!,

The technique is to take out the external filler strip in the screen rubber first then the screen just pops out - its all a bit before your time 😅

Are you relocating the battery to the boot if not and your putting it back in its original position then you need to look at this as the battery tray location will need more steel sheeting added or battery will just slide out of its location.

Oh I get it now. You just haven't worked on enough BMWs yet. You'll come around eventually. Just like the windshield came out real easily, old BMWs are cheap and reliable.

I don't see you categorizing/notating the parts as you dismantle the complete car. What do you do to keep track of what part went where? If I did that, I would have a master puzzle on my hands. Now I do realize that you are videoing the dismantling then editing it for us.....and that would give you a good record, but you do so many projects at once, so you must have a method that I have missed.....or you have one heck of memory......a photographic memory!

Nice wee motor them E 30. A wee tip on removing the windscreen(shield) and rear window. Start from the inside with a wide blade flat screwdriver and lift the inner lip of the rubber seal over the metal lip holding it in place. once started it gets easier and ya won't break the screen(shield)

If you're a skeptic, check out BCW's Cresta and Fox Mustang Barra 2019 Drag week efforts. Great footage of the build on US soil prior to the event including all the dramas and sorting them out on the fly. Both run mid to low 8's if thats of interest.

Glad they popped the rear windshield out, the correct way, by drawing the bead out, as opposed to the, now cracked, front one. Still learning, thats the main thing. 👍🇬🇧

Why not use a BMW engine. How about a new Supra engine? It will make your build unique on YouTube. Not sure if the car is to new to find a engine like that but wouldn’t it be pretty dope to say you made a classic into a new Supra
bobspurloc - 29 dager siden
removing the windshield glass is easy, it just slides out, proceeds to hump the dash and crack the windshield LOL. OK guys the BMW windshield is too expensive so we are going to put an LS2 windshield in this, its just less work and within our budget.

Keep it all original, restore the engine! Just add to it. Put every engin upgrade you can throw at it. Add nitro. Put a flip up head unit and upgrade sound. But make everything look original..Replace, restore, or cover with leather dash to match the seats. Recover the seats. No Recaro seats. Keep it classy.

And to all those begging for mustang rebuild videos, here's a tip, why don't you buy one and do it yourself then you can watch a rebuild video everyday for REAL rather than watching someone else do it...
It really saddens me about YouTube that due to its model of subscription for free,
content makers are slaves to their fans demand for content
as if they don't produce often enough people unsubscribe and they don't get the revenue.
Its like if TV was run like this, They'd be making a season of The Walking Dead every six weeks but the quality would be less...

Cheaper to cut them cracked old faded rubbers and save the expensive glass than the other way round. But also with cars of that age the windscreen is beat up and scratched anyway from age so no great loss. But thats my tip always choose the glass over the rubbers and renew them as new rubbers always makes an old car look mint and they are watertight...But that said shit happens and you live and learn...

The way to remove this type of front windscreen when the rubber has hardened, is to cut the rubber around the screen. Then you can just remove the screen easily and pull out the rest of the rubber. The rubber is shot anyway and it can't be reused, because it's old and hard and it saves breaking the glass. You have to buy a new rubber anyway, so saving the glass saves money.
