Re: '86 Canadian Bronzit-Beige

Wow, looks very nice Val. Definitely more than an oil change! Just time for a refresh or a necessary repair? Well, the engine was leaking oil from the day one I've got the sixer and leaks were getting worse with the time. At some point I've decided that it would be easier just to overhaul the engin...

What might happen if you drop a car for a simple oil change.. https://a.d-cd.net/5QAAAgDiUOA-1920.jpg https://a.d-cd.net/_QAAAgDiUOA-960.jpg https://a.d-cd.net/qIAAAgDiUOA-960.jpg https://a.d-cd.net/9QAAAgDiUOA-960.jpg https://a.d-cd.net/5YAAAgEKsOA-1920.jpg https://a.d-cd.net/PQAAAgJbiOA-960.jpg ht...

Re: '86 Canadian Bronzit-Beige

Just one photo from the mid of April. When I took the car out of the garage it was dry and shiny.
Later at the same day, the freezing rain hit Toronto:

Re: '86 Canadian Bronzit-Beige

Ireland Engineering exhaust developed some droning on lower RPMs, but even without it, it was a bit too loud to my taste. So the time came to change it on something quieter. The budget choice was Walker 47656 with Amazon sourced two Superior 28-2121 1.75" x 9" Silentips. https://s19.postimg.cc/tn07i...

Such a sad news.
While I never meat Dean personally, we exchanged quite a lot on bimmerforums and here. He was very very knowledgeable and warm person. He will be missed by e24 community.

My deepest condolences to the family.

Re: '86 Canadian Bronzit-Beige

Bob, those vents looks factory!

Meanwhile, I got myself 6L spare canister. Was hunting for 9L in decent condition and price, but no luck yet.
The original spout is missing, but I'll buy it separately.

Thanks! Be aware though that USB plug won't be inserted all the way to the charger, as there is not enough depth left without casing. The well is about 5 mm short. Doesn't bother me much, but still.

2-port USB charger.

I always had issues with USB chargers for the cigarette lighter, and I was looking for a neat permanent solution to have at least one charger available. I've investigated a few options, and while all of them had some advantages, the one described in How to install a 2 port USB power adapter in an ‘8...

Central console assembly and installation.

Time come to assemble and install the central console. But first, knowing my luck, I've decided to change OBC back-light to LED from Garagistic. I didn't want to assemble central console back and face dead OBC lights after the short time. Received LED insert: https://s19.postimg.cc/c22ufxm4z/led.01....

Where did you buy the digital guages? Those look great. You can contact Roland directly, in one of the previous posts I put a link to the thread where he gave permission to publish his email. He will respect GB prices depending of how many units you'll order. I put an order for 2 and he gave us dis...

Re: '86 Canadian Bronzit-Beige

Temp sender as a drain plug seems to be easiest and simple solution, if you're OK with the wire that should be disconnected/connected during oil changes. It takes female spade connector so shouldn't be an issue, but if it's not you who is doing the oil change, then this person should be warned. Dril...

This washer tubing install looks clean.
I will tackle underhood lights when I'l work on insulation. The one I have now doesn't work either, I suspect bad wiring.
