        Nothing much has happened past few weeks. Hopefully I can order the big brakes and a set of coilovers in a few weeks so I can spend my summer bolting on new/shiny parts While waiting the pay day at the end of the month, I received these tie rod inner bushings from Alex (Error404). Big thanks! Just fitted them and they were perfect.

          Again, it has been quiet month. Missus BMW decided to need all costly maintenance work at once, so I have to push back the purchase of the big front brakes and KW coilovers. Instead I decided to fix a few rust issues once my summer holiday starts. One is on the right A-pillar and it needs the windscreen removed to be fixed properly. Same goes for the rear glass and I understand this is a fairly common issue. My original plan was to fix these after the BBK and coilover install, but I decided to tackle these before it's too late. Hopefully no welding is needed and there is nothing that a wirebrush and spraygun can't handle


          Here's the rear glass

          And here's the A-pilllar

            Two months has passed without me writing here anything but finally some progress. This week I managed to start the rear end painting/rust fixing process. While removing the interior trims, little surprise was there for me. Just as the wiring under the dash, the trunk lid wire harness looked like this I ordered some wires from vehicle wiring products and I'm expecting to receive them this week.

            Next step was to remove the rear glass. Took a little time to cut through the glue and some of the trim that sorrounds the glass, but it came out pretty easily after all

            This is how it looks without lights/glass

            All the rust spots were sandblasted, then painted with etch primer. After that the whole rear end was sprayed with sanding primer. Then it required A LOT of sanding, sanding and sanding. My arms still hurt

            This is how it looks after base and clear coats Looks decent when you look far enough...

            As always with painting (especially outside), you always get some dirt on your paintwork. Also I managed to get one big run:

            Pretty easy to fix that. But this is what troubles me the most. The whole paintwork is covered with small fisheyes. I'm thinking it's because of the humid conditions here and I just used simple water separator before the paint gun. I guess it needs a proper air dehumidifier to keep the small water particles out of paintwork.

            This is the worst side of the car. I painted this part last and the compressor had been running for some time. Will have to see how well wet sanding takes these away of if I have to spray a whole new clear.
            But before sanding I have to get some polyurethane glue to stick the rear glass back in and then I can start to put in lights and interior trim

              Today was time to sort the tailgate wiring loom.



              20180822_094254.jpg



              I cut out the previous "repair" wires and soldered new ones in. Then I wrapped it with harness tape.

              After that it was time to put the glass back in

              This is the stuff I used. Its a 1K polyurethane glue from Pilkington


              20180822_174908.jpg


              That's about it. Hope the glue is dry tomorrow morning when I'll have to work with it It's been over a month since I've driven it the last time. I bet it's fun to drive it after a break

                Those fisheyes you are talking about are silicone holes. Quite typical if you dont clean the painted areawith silicone remover. Other than that good job considering that its painted outside.

                  I thought so too, but considered it unlikely since I wiped it thoroughly with silicon remover. Maybe some oil residue in the compressed air? Whatever the reason, next time I'll invest in some proper filtration and give it even more careful silicon remover wiping

                    Jep, next possible cause can be oil residue/water ect in compressed air. Next time use THIS. I have used it and it works like a charm!!!

                      Well, my clutch master cylinder gave up a week ago. One morning when reversing out of my driveway, the clutch pedal refused to return. At first I was pretty confused what was going on, but a quick look to the master cylinder made everything clear. There was some severe weeping of brake fluid from the cylinder. Was fun driving for a week while waiting for parts to arrive Luckily again, this forum gave instructions how to fit regular 80 master cylinder to S2

                      I tried to look for some kind of manufacturer stamp on the old cylinder, but didn't find one. Probably some c**ppy cheapo part!
