1982 BMW 323i Baur
Memorial Day 2010 First Drive 1982 323i BMW Baur Lapisblau M20 5 speed #4154 of 4595 made. The car was imported to California by Dietel Enterprises. I have since changed the wheels, installed the clear turn signal lenses, and I am in the process of installing a new cabriolet roof. I have to do something about those bumpers, too. :) I love this car! To see one of the reasons why, check my post "Score One For the Good Guys" on 6/26/2011.

Project Journal Update: 1973 2002 Malaga (with Frosting) 6/9/2013

I spent a little time this weekend trying to get a handle on the paint/rust situation with the 1973 2002.  I decided that I wanted to at least make an effort to stabilize the situation for now.  It is quite painful to look at the car as it is, knowing that Rust Never Sleeps!  So I did some stripping and sanding of the paint.... really just the beginning of the first step in the process.

Lots of little rust areas to be stripped down to bare metal.

Down to bare metal in many places.

You can see the original Malaga here.

Getting ready to hit it with more primer.

I had a stash of primer in the garage from another project.... some grey, some red, and some white.  Well, here is where I ran out of grey, much to my surprise and chagrin.  I thought I had more, but.... since I moved a few years ago, it hasn't turned up.  So, screw it.  You go with what you have!  ;)  

Rat rod in the making!  :)  

Stay tuned!
