Post E30 BMW Restoration ?

My E30 325i was restored in 2003...It has a new engine and everything.

I sold my daily beater to a family member who needed a car...and now I have no daily driver.

*THE E30 has been driven only 800 miles or less on avg. the last few years and now it's time to start using it again.
I've serviced the car and performed all maintenance and oil changes every 3k (non synthetic).

I started to order parts for the car as the rear valence (metal) and the rocker panel have corrosion on them.
I ordered a new rocker panel from BMW and received it last week.

NOW I'm i'm thinking: How much to spend on restoration #2. (My guess $3,500 in NEPA).

I don't want to sell it but may have to as it is not the most practical choice to drive everyday. It is my 1st car when I've owned since 1997.


Thoughts!?

The E30 325i is in there along with my brother's E30 M3 and my daily beater (it's a kia-tisk, tisk)
