nice car i used to own a diamond black 1 with black leather before i got my m3 it was a 1989 1 as well i wish i could afford both but unfortuantley the wife wanted a honda civic and threatened my family jewels if she didnt get it(women what do they know about real cars)

p.s.treat it with rust inhibitor & catalloy

Bet you felt sick after that!
If i were you i would treat any bare metal by painting it with waxoil, that will stop any moisture causing damage to metal. It will look ugly but it may prevent rust getting started, when you can get it repaired the waxoil will come off with thinners or petrol.


Scraped against a Post in the car park today and have a nasty scrape down my Rear passenger wheel arch. It goes deep and I wanted to know the best way to treat it, so that it doesn't go rusty on me. I can't afford to have it sprayed properley at the momment, as I spent 450 getting the other arch and the front end stone chips done :o(

Its a 89 325i Sport

PS posted here, as the E30 guys are more interested in flaming than helping usually
