So, it begins. I haven't rolled Hedwig into the garage quite yet, but I'm declaring my intentions to this little corner of the world on this Friday the 13th. I'll have a parallel thread on my own site that I'll list in the signature when I start those pages up. I'll list this restoration thread in my profile page and in my signature to make finding it easier. That's a bit of an issue with so many postings in the Projects & Restorations tab it's hard to find someone's 'restoration thread' out of all the posts they may have made. The car has many good points: a great interior that is virtually complete, the body is straight, matching numbers and a 95% complete tool kit, including two red screwdrivers. Bad points: rust- right rocker & passenger floor, front and rear glass frame corners, door bottoms. The nose is apparently rust free as it was replaced dash forward at some point because of a fender bender. Further probing is needed. Engine runs, needs new distributor installed due to erratic spark. Goals: Fix rust, repaint Chamonix, replace all rubber, upgrade seatbelts & add third brake light at top of rear window, install 5 speed Getrag. Drive. From BMW: The BMW 2800 CS US VIN 2270407 was manufactured on July 24th, 1970 and delivered on August 25th, 1970 to a company named J.B.S. in Frankfurt/Main, probably for delivery to a US citizen temporarily living in Germany. The original colour was Chamonix, paint code 085.
