Flares and valance

Build028 1970 BMW 2002 M42 Restoration 024

More body work; trunk repair and add some flares and a valance. No problem. Drill some holes, add some nut-inserts, and bolt them on.

Be sure to measure and check things multiple times. Once you drill, you're committed. Also, go slow when drilling the fiberglass. Let your bit (a sharp one!) do the work for you. Once those are on, it goes off to the paint ninja, Brian, to be painted.
