Boring update, I have been traveling and trying to get my m3 fixed so I haven't done much on the car. We have most of the wood fixed and stained. I only took one pic, but you get the idea.

We also recovered some of the trim panels.

We also cleaned the window regulators and made some adjustments. Apparently the windows were missing some parts so we ordered some stupid expensive springs from Germany.... Seriously this thing is killing me.

We also ordered a new headliner and removed the old one. The headliner in the car was actually in pretty good shape except someone cut a square out of it.....no clue..

I hope to have some more meaningful updates soon.

I gave the visors a good cleaning last night. I am impressed with P&S xpress interior cleaner.

As you can see in the video, it took very little effort.

My dad also made a speaker mount for the dash.

Not a major system but we plan on driving this car and we need some music. We will likely get a vintage look radio with bluetooth or a modified vintage radio.

Small update, not to leave well enough alone we weren't 100% happy with the trim. So my dad stripped the veneer and re-stained.

I think they are good now.

Who am I kidding, I'm sure we will do them again.....

Also, the headliner material showed up so we will work on that this weekend I'm sure.

A few more pics of the e9 wood after the final coat of poly. I think they are done.

Quick test fit to make sure the main dash piece doesn't interfere with the speakers.

Then started gluing the headliner in.

More updates soon.
