Smile My bmw 325is restauration!

My father and I bought a BMW 325is 1989. Unfortunately, the body wasn't the best haha. The car is old so, I decided to start this project with my friends who's driving one too ( bmw 325i 1986 ) and I want to show you how it goes!

Good work but that "hole" is your drain hole in case water settles on the floor.
