    This paint job was done by RIXCAR, a vehicle painting and restoration workshop located in Riga, Latvia. Our previous projects include such cars as BMW E24 M6, Ford Thunderbird, Studebaker Golden Hawk and many other American and European classics.

    We have recently finished another great BMW E30 project. E30 is a car that looks fantastic when it is brought to perfection and that was our goal.

    This particular car was a 1987 model with a 168 horsepower m20b25 engine and ran great.

    The BMW was not in it’s worst shape, however the body was slightly twisted, had some rust damage and dents and needed treatment.

    The interior was taken out to evaluate the condition of E30's body.

    Then different body parts were disassembled and prepared for painting separately. Then all the rusted areas were cut out and patches were welded in.

    All the little dents were mechanically straightened, rust spots cleaned and treated. After that all body imperfections were smoothed out with a thin layer of putty.

    The putty must be sandpapered till a perfect smoothness not to leave any unwanted marks on the new paint.

    After all the dents on this E30 were straightened and sandpapered, the car was ready for the paint job.
    All the body was treated with a high-end anti-rust materials.
    The first layer is epoxy primer which will protect the body from any further rust damages. The second is a primer layer that ensures a good coupling between the body and paint.

    The priming stage is followed by layers of fresh and shiny Zinnoberrot color and clear coat to protect the new paint.

    Then the assembly process could begin.

    E30 is a rather simple car so there were no problems in finding the right place for all the wires.

    Fresh paint really enhances the lines of this car.

    [​IMG]

    After some polishing and final touch-ups the car was finished. We also equipped this E30 with original M-Tech II body kit.

    Of course all the black plastic parts such as the front grill were re-painted.

    Also new Klutch SL1 black wheels were installed.
