Default BMW M6 (E24) restoration

RIXCAR car restoration workshop is located in Riga - the capital of Latvia. The company has seven year experience in car restoration processes, at the moment there are 14 employees in RIXCAR and each of them is a master in his field.

The main focus areas are:
-car body repairs and painting
-classic car restoration
-exhaust system tuning
.
This will be a little bigger poster from us, but it might be quite interesting reading material. So we have got a BMW M6 E24 here.
Our aim was to restore the bodywork.
The place where everything happened: RIXCAR
So, when the car arrived, its condition was not very good. The body was damaged and there were a lot of rust.






To start the restoration process, we removed all the lights, bumpers, etc.





We cut out all the rusted parts and fitted the new ones.








We welded all the places where it was necessary.




Car's front corners after welding. The corner is hand made.


The car is ready for painting








Here we see the body after the primer base coat is applied. Body panels have been fitted to see if they match.


There is a long story about the front fenders. Since it is close to impossible to find new fenders, we managed to get fenders made from fiber glass.
During the time when the car and panels were prepared for painting, we fabricated brand new Magnaflow exhaust system.




The car after painting process.






After that we started to put the parts together: interior, overfenders, bumpers, body panels and many other parts.





Then we drove the car outside to wash off all the dust.



After a short while the coilovers arrived, special thanks to ADparts.eu.
Then the windows were put back and we started fitting the coilovers.




To put back the coilovers, steering knuckles had to be modified.



The back of the car will be lowered more and the comfort springs will be removed.

Moldings and bumpers were fitted.




The car is getting back itís original look.






Our BMW M6 E24 is almost finished
The rear bumper still needs to be adjusted. Lights and the whole car are not yet polished. The front chrome molding and fog lights will be fitted by the car owner himself.
In these photos you can see the BBS RK 8,5j et15 wheels.









The car is traveling back to Norway.
Final pictures from harbour:





The car has been returned to the owner, this project is finished. We hope that it was interesting to read and to see the pictures from the process.

Awesome work restoring a rare car!

I always loved these cars. Back in theearly 90's my mom had the actual white 635csi from the TV show Spenser for Hire that Hawk drove. White car with white wheels and Ivory leather. Car came with documentation from Warner Bros. Sadly she drove it as her DD. After a few years the car developed a bad water leak around the windshield and she ended up trading it in on a Honda Accord. She loved that car though.
