Beating the Heat

We’re hoping for a great turnout at tonight’s Cruise-In here at the shop!   Come on by starting at 6pm and bring your favorite items to throw on the grill if you choose!  And meet our newest 4-legged friend, Lucy!  She’s a sweetheart, and she loves cars, especially bimmers!  😉

This 1988 BMW M3 needed a new A/C compressor.  We actually had our machine shop reinforce the A/C compressor bracket.  The HVAC condenser was also replaced.

We installed a Spal fan and fabricated a couple of brackets to make it look OEM:

Additionally, we got the 1987 BMW 325 back from alignment and paint yesterday.  Remember the damage from her accident a while back?  She’s getting put back together, and we’ll get her cleaned up and ready for her owner.  Due to the accident, the passenger side lower control arm (front) had to be replaced.   The bent wheel will be replaced as well.  Lights and hardware were moved over to the new front bumper, valance, and fender.

What about the pretty Mahogany Brown Metallic 2001 BMW X5 from last week?   She got new rear cross-member bushings.  Pictured below are the old bushings:

The oil pan on this 1987 BMW 325 met a curb, and, unfortunately, it did not end so well for the aluminum structure that oil calls home.   I’d bet that the oil pan and said curb are not on speaking terms at this point.  Perhaps I’m being a bit over-dramatic…but why not?  This blog needs some drama, right?  Moving on…

The oil pan:

Jordan needed to lower a bit of the front suspension to remove the oil pan:

The 1989 BMW 325ix is back from the paint shop…no more peeling paint!  She’s looking good!  Sooo good!  Jordan is putting all of her trim bits and accessories on before she gets picked up later.
