Hi folks.

Due to some pitting on the metal frame, I bought a set of new old stock wood trim for the dashboard.

My existing wood trim on the doors have a polished finish, so I have chosen to polish the dash trim to similar finish. Also the NOS part had some scratches which did not look so good.

I think the polished dark wood suits the more luxurious image of the lwb E3 quite well. What do you think? Do you like the polished finish or would you prefer the original matte finish?

Picked up the head and block today from the machine shop. The head was skimmed 0,2 mm and the block 0,1 mm.

Did some minor clean up of the intake runners today. Mostly close to the valve seat, with particular focus on the short radius.

I think BMW did a decent job casting these runners reasonably well shaped.
