Happy Friday! The sun is shining, it's well above freezing, and the Big Game is being played here this weekend! Yes, this is a 1969 Chevrolet Camaro in our shop. Yes, you're reading the Reggie's Motorworks blog. Yes, we work on special interest autos, and this one is definitely a special interest auto! We'll be doing an engine replacement, so be sure to stay tuned!
This super cool 2012 Mini Countryman Cooper S All4 came in for an oil change:
This 1995 BMW 530i had an instrument cluster that wasn't working properly as well as a broken cruise control throttle cable. Reggie also replaced the hood shocks, replaced OBC light bulbs, and repaired the loose driver's seat.
A new blower motor needed to be installed in this 1996 BMW 328i:
Reggie removes the broken blower motor:
This brand new blower motor will solve the owner's issue of no heat blowing from the HVAC system:
The faulty blower motor (the plastic "wheel" on top had been removed):
We're back with more progress on rust repairs on the 1990 BMW 325i
! Here Reggie is applying seam sealer in places that will be difficult to get to once the panel is replaced:
The "donor" 1991 BMW 318is supplied the perfect patch panel for the 325i. Reggie has it carefully held in position until he's ready to weld:
The process is repeated with the next section on the lower valance:
A look at the "donor" bimmer:
Besides both bimmers being the same color, they both had a very similar sticker! It's like they were meant to run into each other here at the shop!
Reggie applies panel adhesive to help hold the patch panels in place prior to welding:
Clamps are added for good measure and the panel adhesive is allowed to cure overnight:
The next day, Reggie gets to work welding the panels in place:
The grinder smooths any rough edges along the weld:
We'll be back with more next week! Enjoy the Big Game on Sunday!
