now i have got a little done again. now when the winter is coming the body really need to get som epoxi protection and all the structural work is done.
so i first washed away all the residue from the soda blasting and then sand blasted all remaining rust and last a epoxi layer

My spray booth drying robot was good to dry all the water after pressure washing20160908_092812_[500x375)

I am going to use MaxxEcu engine management system. To use the BMW original system i think is almost impossible. MaxxEcu has also a good system to control the vanos.

Collector with not so nice welds! to get a nice tig weld in stainless need lot of practice and steady hand witch i don't have Frowner20160917_155013_[500x375)
