Powered by a straight-six BMW S50 engine the E36 was the first M3 to sport such an engine and coupled with its sleek, modern design it’s no wonder the praise it recieved featuring a max output of 286-321 horse power. Originally the car was booked in for various mechanical upgrades, but it quickly became apparent there were a number of areas of corrosion that needed attention. Of course, when we start the works, it’s always worse than you first imagine…
Upon closer inspection we found extreme corrosion on the front wheelarches, previous poor repairs had caused corrosion under panels and especially the poor welding on the break line had caused severe corrosion
We quickly got to work fabricating and welding on replacement panels for the horrifically corroded underside panels as seen in the previous pictures.
We also dealt with heavy corrosion above and around both springs which were replaced and painted over promptly as seen above.
more updates to follow with the final finish being Gravitex paint.
