Ugh, rust repair

Build011 1975 BMW 2002 Turbo M42 101

When I bought this car I knew it has some rust in the floors. I wasn't aware of the firewall rust. The best thing to do for this was just cut it all out and replace with fresh panels.

The owner helped us source a good replacement firewall from out in CA. He sent it out...and we welded it in.

This was a huge process and there are a lot more pictures in the gallery if you would like to see more detail.
