my first experience with " glue and rivet" repair was on the e60 5series bmw's...the front sections on these cars as well as the 6 series were made of aluminum.....the only way to repair damaged rails and aprons was to cut and fully replace....needless to say the motor had to come out and you needed to adhere to specific procedures you were taught at the training facility......i had to invest in special machinery and tools.....must admit when i first heard of this way back when i was very skeptical but now i realize how ahead of the curve bmw was and has always been.....plenty of other manufacturers have followed suit.....
