RIXCAR car restoration workshop is located in Riga - the capital of Latvia. The company has seven year experience in car restoration processes, at the moment there are 14 employees in RIXCAR and each of them is a master in his field.

The main focus areas are:
-car body repairs and painting
-classic car restoration
-exhaust system tuning

This will be a little bigger poster from us, but it might be quite interesting reading material. So we have got a BMW M6 E24 here.
Our aim was to restore the bodywork.
The place where everything happened: RIXCAR

So, when the car arrived, its condition was not very good. The body was damaged and there were a lot of rust.

Here we see the body after the primer base coat is applied. Body panels have been fitted to see if they match.

There is a long story about the front fenders. Since it is close to impossible to find new fenders, we managed to get fenders made from fiber glass.
During the time when the car and panels were prepared for painting, we fabricated brand new Magnaflow exhaust system.

After that we started to put the parts together: interior, overfenders, bumpers, body panels and many other parts.

After a short while the coilovers arrived, special thanks to ADparts.eu.
Then the windows were put back and we started fitting the coilovers.

To put back the coilovers, steering knuckles had to be modified.

Our BMW M6 E24 is almost finished
The rear bumper still needs to be adjusted. Lights and the whole car are not yet polished. The front chrome molding and fog lights will be fitted by the car owner himself.
In these photos you can see the BBS RK 8,5j et15 wheels.
