I had a bit of an audio problem with this one. It will cut out every now and again for a short amount of time. I'm looking into it. (premier pro cc 2018)

This weeks video is the first time in the series we really get to look at the chassis of the E30. I head over to GLW Engineering to have the chassis put on a rotisserie and shot-blasted with medium grit glass media.

So I sort of picked this one up where I left it from a while ago now when I first started taking the E30 apart. The doors and bonnet had already been stripped of all their plastic and rubber. All that was left was the boot lid and bumpers.

Once everything was down to bare metal it was time to have the car collected by GLW and taken for blasting. Once I got there, I had to remove all of the subframes, struts, and wheels before having them mounted on a rotisserie I purchased from 'roll and restore'. This was done with a forklift very early in the morning so I wasn't able to film it.

The car was then rolled into the blasting room. All of the paint and rust was then blasted off. The rotisserie made this ten times easier to access all of the hard to reach places.

In part two of the chassis blasting, the doors, boot, bonnet, and bumpers will be blasted and primed along with the chassis.
