Transforming this prized family car to be handed down from father to son
Our latest restoration project involved this 5 Series that had been bruised and battered over the years through lots of hardship and service for its original owner. With their son coming of age and with times as bad as they currently are, this large sedan is as good a hand me down as one could ask for. But first, there was a bunch of work to be done to turn it into a stylish, presentable and comfortable ride for a young urban adult out to make an impression at work and amongst the ladies.
As you can tell from the photos, the exterior paintwork was in a seriously deteriorated condition and some minor repair plus a full respray was in order to change it to a new sleek midnight blue colour. With a fresh layer of high quality paint firmly in place, we followed up with the latest GYEON Quartz Q2 DuraBead coating for an unbeatable shine and protection with the world’s longest lasting water beading effect.
Stepping into the vehicle clearly showed that the interior wasn’t in any better shape either. The leather seats were aged, stained and unsightly; the overall trim was faded and peeling. Everything just appeared dull and didn’t feel very sexy at all. To restore the inner cabin to an almost brand new look and feel, we needed to change a few parts and refurbish the rest while keeping the budget within reasonable limits without compromising on the quality or results.

After a couple of weeks, a beautifully rejuvenated vehicle with a new lease of life was born out from our workshop to the great satisfaction of both parents and son. Boy, is this baby ready to go places and see faces!
