    Default Another Swartz 318is being saved

    Found this little gem the wkend, genuine 318is slicktop coupe, older owner the last 7+ years so it's gonna need some cleaning but body and engine are perfect

    Sadly the driver seat has broken on him at some stage and he's just put in a cream one outta a sedan so gotta try find a match again,
    front bumper and valance was damaged but came with good ones and already dropped them to the paint shop,
    tryin to source some new wheels at the minute and lower it to make all the difference,
    Clutch felt funny and under closer inspection the slave cylinder on the pedal is leaking and fluid is gunk so have new slave and master on order
    Just need to find some spots and a new is front lip and then decide to keep or what to do
