    Sorry to hear that.

    Most important is to antirust and paint both sides of the repaired area. Sometimes, the body shop spray antirust primer on the outside only.
    They just leave the welded metal bare on the inside. That's how the rust restart.

    I am doing the rust treatment myself, the body shop did but some area were not covered. I start with Kurust, then I spray zinc primer (Crc Zinc-it), then perhaps finish with hammerite metal paint. I hope it will be good enough.
    I also use Hunting's RustGard for the in between space of the boot/bonnet lid skin and inside frame. But this Hunting Rustgard is a bit oily, so I'll only spray it after new colour painting is completed. I'll update my build thread with pictures on this process.

    Hie guys!
    E21 threads been dead for a while now..
    thought id fire it up with another parts wish list to complete my project which is taking longer than how long it took me to get my degree! damn!! :(

    Anyone can point me to a good shop to re do my interior without having to sell my arm or my legs? i need new heatshields, full carpets, new speaker board, need to re wrap my seats, door cards are currently rotting.

    Besides that, anyone know where i can find a good e30 half cut shop? i need some small parts;
    - the L connectors from the throttle body for the brake vacuum servo
    - a fuel pump and sender assembly from a E30 318

    And on top of that, any idea what absorbers would be good? the car is too high right now.. i dont like the look considering i extended the front lower lip by a few inches for a more 'rake' look..

    and finally anyone know a good wiring shop i can send this car to for me to get all my wiring checked out before i finally use it and it burns down due to a short? wiring has never been my favourite.

    hope anyone can lend some help!! haha...

    What parts are you looking for? New you may directly order from Ingress apparently I came to know all spare shops order from them too including Stutttgart, CSS etc

    Used we have an active Whatsapp group among our fellow e21 members which I can add you in.

    Mind sharing shots of your car?
