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

Within the restoration process we use the highest quality environmentally friendly materials to ensure excellent results. The workshop is equipped with modern technologies which allows us to carry out custom projects of any difficulty, for example bending from scratch car body panel of any shape.
We always give rough idea of the final price, after we see the condition of the car and we do everything we can to manage work processes smarter, to keep within the agreed price or decrease it by doing things differently and to be more innovative and creative so there would be less risks of unplanned expenses. We offer different kinds of ways to get everything done + we stand by our performance. We are able to provide numerous references from our customers from Nordic countries. We can also assist you with transporting your car to our workshop.

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.

To start the restoration process, we removed all the lights, bumpers, etc.

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.

Then we drove the car outside to wash off all the dust.

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.

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.
