    Paul - with as far as you've come with the car, it must be disheartening to find that hidden corrosion in there. But you caught it (thankfully) and addressed it - so that's great! The car is looking amazing. So to the teak wood.

    Paul, everything looks great. Is that a solid teak dash?

    Im not sure, but the 3 holes are in all cars.
    My guess would be that they are for location pins prior to welding the ring on.

    I've always perceived nachtblau as a little darker and less "electric" than the color in your example pics. But it is always tough to be definitive with pictures. Here are a couple of nachtbau pics from the internet/registry (car pics from members' cars).

    I think the side view of this car has been enhanced. Quite a bit.

    ...sort of Turkis v Fjord ? ...door colour is my preference of the two. . Good to see your painter has mandatory safety footwear.

    well the original delivery colour was Polaris Silver. in 1983 it had a colour change to Fjord Blue and that is how I bought the car before starting the resto project......without a matching numbers engine.... shortly will have an M90/B34 engine and 5 speed box so matching numbers is definitely out the window......I thought in keeping E9 colours I would go for Turkis 065 which you all seem to like ( I am glad about that.... good to get 2nd opinions) with mid tan leather upholstery (see attached) Yes.......I like the comment on "mandatory workplace footware" hehhehhe
    I am thinking of spraying the rocker panels in a Mid Grey to Charcoal colour (non gloss) instead of the standard Black. Thanks for your comments
