Elka’s new look (the wheels look great)!

Last winter (2011) I spent lots of my spare time on the 1975 ’02 and this past winter I spent lots of my spare time dismantling the red ’87 535is.

This spring I am giving time to my white ’87 535is from which this blog gets its name.  “Elka” has had a complete interior make over – new upholstered seats in the front, dyed carpet, newly coated trim pieces all transformed from blue to black.  Painted the wheels gun metal gray and my next project is dying the rear leather seat black and finishing off the rear seat area.  Today I began sanding down the front valance from “Bernie” as I plan to paint it Alpine White for Elka since her valance has an unpleasant crack across the front.
