Re: pics of Sharknosemeeting 2016, Boxmeer, The Netherlands

Shows how much I use the forum these days :roll: Only just spotted this post and my car hahaha. The "Schwarzblau" one with buffalo hide seats Dutch mentioned. I had seen no notifications for some time and also just found out why - new forum software. It wasn't a bad meeting but not the best edition ...

@Duracell

Just realised that I met you guys at the Sharknose. I forgot at the time that this discussion had taken place.

@Kos

Ditto Bimmerfest

I'm going to have to catch the ferry your way sometime. Be nice to get a few guys from over here to tag along

I'll look forward to seeing some of you there then. I've also been going the last few years and this year as last I will be in the main hall by the Schmiedmann stand. I've got a few items from Schmiedmann on the car and Kenneth, the owner, appreciates my talking to potential customers. My Miller MAF...

OK - then that's changed in the last few minutes. It definitely didn't have anything when I posted. Thanks if you changed something. I noticed that "baders" on page 3 of the thank you topic also has nothing under his nam after donating.

I didn't have any problems donating from The Netherlands. $25 on 25th December (Christmas spirit :D ). Unfortunately I don't see it reflected in my profile level. Some members seem to be BigCoupe Supporter but I'm not sure if it still works like that. I know that on an older incarnation of the site ...

Well thanks for that Brucie, I just hope it helps others. It is almost a year ago since I did that bit and the old girl has had the engine rebuild and necessary work in the engine compartment. I'm now running the Miller MAF and chip and it runs as sweet as a nut. I had a valuation done for the insur...

Try looking on the Hirschmann website ( http://products.hirschmann-car.com/SepiaPIMWeb/ProductCatalog?treepath=2_362_1049_1050_705 ) they have a good selection of spare parts including antenna heads. They've even got a dealer finder for most countries. At the end of the day a replacement Hirschmann ...

Hello again, OK, reassembly is always more fun than disassembly but there is something in the middle which seems to consume the bulk of the total repair time. Cleaning and prepping is never fun and tends to try and get you to cut corners which would mean that it either just doesn't look good or that...

I promised Brucie that I would do an update if I completed this exercise and had anything to add, so here goes. As expected the whole system was horribly rusted and took some time to dismantle. I have no photo's unfortunately as I don't always have (or want) my DSLR in the workshop when I'm getting ...

Eventually got an email reply from Otter and thought it was worth sharing. On 1st January I wrote: Dear Sirs, I am in the process of restoring a BMW E24 6 series built in 1986. It is fitted with a headlamp wash/wipe system but the wipers haven't worked correctly in years. I have, with great difficul...

Received mine in Holland on Tuesday :D Thanks Brian.

I would have thought yours should also have been there by there by now although basic transatlantic mail can be notoriously slow.

Hi Brian, Just wanted to clarify a couple of points before the summer (if we get one over here :roll: ) so I'm ready for 2013. You say Ideally, it would be nice to have an image of 3200 X 2400 with a DPI of 300 My present camera does 3648 x 2736 with a little over 300 ppi (pixels per inch), this is ...

OK Brucey - thanks for the quick reply. I was actually hoping that Otter would take pity on me and send me a "sample" :lol:

I had looked on RS but don't know Farnell. Over here we have an online Conrad but I couldn't find much there.

I'll post an update when I eventually get it fixed.

Cheers

Brucey, Bit of a long time age since the original post but have you any information about the thermal switch. I emailed Otter but have received no reply as yet. I asked them if there was a supplier who would deal with me or if they could supply me with a little more tech info. Not even knowing the s...

Still waiting in the Netherlands too :(

Mine has to get to England first and then be forwarded on - that should be fun with all the snow they've got over there.

Hi Brian,

What's the price for shipping to the Netherlands? Can't be much different to the UK surely.
