  1. BMW E12

    My friend has a 1972 BMW E12 325 sedan. It is in really bad condition and the engine is a toyota engine. It is a rust bucket but I love how the car looks with the classic lines. How much would a car like this cost and is it worth restoring? The engine is a Toyota so that is a relief for now I can swap a BMW engine later. What about shocks springs ? I am guessing no one is selling these parts. If any one has any experience with this please give me some ideas or talk me out of buying this junk. Thank you

  3. W123 Restoration

    Hi Guys, Just thought I'll share pictures of my W123 being done up. Actually work started 1 year back, hadn't time to share anything as I am based out of SL. The work has been painfully slow.. but I didn't have a choice in the matter since im not there to push and get things done. The car had some corrosions and obviously would need a new full spray. I had put it a place in Athurugiriya first and nothing was done for about 1 year.. car was just idling. Then I got to know a garage in Nawala and handed it over... work is very slow but at least there was progress.. ive attached a picture of how the car was before.. will attach some pictures of how the car looked after taking out panels and being parked doing nothing for a year...
  4. This is how it`s look when i bought my Hunter..<br /> It was with all original parts but needed the attention on Tinkering.
  5. Hi Guys, I wanted to post this for quite some time now but didn’t actually have a chance. Bought this car in 1997 and my dad and I worked on restoring it since 2003. The best car I’ve owned to this day. I had to give her away a few months ago with great regret (a story for some other time). THE CAR: 1979 Mitsubishi Lancer A72 V (station wagon) ENGINE: 4G33 (Saturn 1400cc carburetor) TRANSMISSION: 4 speed manual BRAKES: Front and Rear drum and liner RESTORATION PHASE 1 | 2003 – 2004 | BODYWORK+ - Restored all body panels and chassis to its original condition - Replaced all door moldings, windshield beadings - Replaced tail lights - Changed color from silver to metallic black - Replaced stock 12' rims with 13' Alloys - Installed brake booster (servo) Sorry for the low photo quality, I didn’t have a good digital camera back then. AFTER More to come... stay tuned...
