    Yep its on the blog or you can see it here. I couldn't upload it to the post as it was too large a file. http://www.theopelproject.com/wp-content/uploads/2019/01/MOV_20190106_1611279_2.mp4 They are BMW 3 series E30, I got them from a place called Ultimate Styling, not sure if they still exist. I think it was through eBay. A bit more info on the setup on these links if you want to do a bit more reading. http://www.theopelproject.com/?p=1106 http://www.theopelproject.com/?p=1089 http://www.theopelproject.com/?p=1084 Andy

    Attended the Sunday scramble at Bicester heritage centre on Sunday, nearly didn’t make it! Why I thought I would just get in the car after laying it up in the summer and it would just go..... charged battery in and it wouldn’t start, ok starter motor I thought, so fitted the nice new starter I have for the turbo lump and nothing, turns out no earth from block to body, the odd thing is it has never had one since I rebuilt it lol, so god knows how it’s been earthing itself lol anyway it had a few more snaps over social media... Also, been asked to attend the NEC in March with the OMOC!

    Quick update. Managed to finally remove all the underseal, sealer etc from the bottom of the car including inner wheel arches. Lovely fun job 😧 Can't believe how good the n/s chassis leg is. No real scares under there, bit of a delay on the repair panels so might start on the rear arches(ready for the 400 arches) and lower rear 1/4 sections.

    I like the wide body kit on a "400", looks great. But I can't get it over my heart to cut in those arches of my "400". It's an original B1-400, and those narrow cars seem to be rare. Jason, you hit the nail on the head.

    Dont worry Ian if you ever sell the car they will see exactly what has gone into it. Not that I think you will be selling it anyway ? . the good thing about your car is that you know exactly what has been done and what all the surfaces are like under the paint. Which is not true of 9 out of 10 of any restored car someone could buy..yes they may look smooth and shiny but you never know what's underneath.we have all read horror stories about what people have found under paint/ panels on cars they are repairing and a freshly restored car for sale could be no better.you just never 100% know. original cars are always better or untouched ones like yours was.you know exactly what you have got,no one has covered anything up. its a bit of the same argument for reconditioned engines,and other parts.
