Small update on the E24. The 2nd to last seat has been dyed.

The last seat is at the upholstery shop getting a seam fixed, I am hoping to have the e24 back on the road next week.

Solid work sir!!

I toiled away for 6 years on an '87 635, got engine very well sorted but interior was nowhere near this quality, so I appreciate the care you're putting in here.

Was cleaning out my garage last weekend and found these. I believe they are dome lights, and the bulbs are brand new. If you need them I'll hand them over for just the price of shipping.

Good luck!

Ill have to check mine, but think they are good. Thank you though.

Another update.

The steering wheel was rough.

Glued in a piece of leather into the hole.

We found a process online using a gel superglue to fill in the bad spots and then sanding it smooth.

Dyed and ready to install. Its not perfect but is much better than it was, and it will work until I put a Nardi in it.

We also finished up the dying the seats and installed them. Its almost ready to drive.

It just needs some mats and it will be good to go.
