The Hack Jobs Unfold - Garden Find V12 BMW E31 850i Revival - Project Marseille: Part 2

In this episode, we set about bringing back to life this legendary 1991 BMW E31 850i 6-speed that's been decommissioned for the last 10 years. But the big 12-cylinder lump had some "expert" work done on it which makes things a bit more difficult.

    This guy is being wasted, he should be financed with his own large shop where he can train underlings and have the power to really fire the ones who don't work out. He reminds me of Ferdinand Peich, who insisted that VW build a car that does 300kph for 24 hours in 40 degrees with the interior not exceeding 20 degrees, and came up with the wonderful Phaeton of 2003 that was and is better than any Bentley or RR.

    When things start off too good, there has to be a catch. I tackled some smaller issues on my car, like a not completely free spinning back whell (drum brake). I was greeted by lots of rust and brake dust, combined with some sort of resin. The insides would only move to some punching tunes by MC Hammer. After several annoying issues with my car, which were a result of poor / not even performed by paid for maintenance by lazy mechanics of two different shops, it's very refreshing to watch you work. Attention to detail, thorough, decent and honest work.

    Like Zionville makes much better all aluminum replacement radiators for almost any BMW that last a lifetime, I wish there would be a mfr of coolant hoses which are not rubber and lifetime quality. This is an untapped market for a world of automobiles that continually need replacement of a rubber part that was originally formulated in the 1930’s. Surely the industrial world of high pressure hoses has an entrepreneur that wishes to become wealthy with a hundred lines of ‘superior to original’ product.
