Re: E12 based car

The change-over year to the E28 E24 is '82.

Re: Need quick response guys

Ronnie; the main reason it can't be done is because the '82 is probably an E12 suspension but, your '86 is definitely an E28 in the chassis department! You can of course, double check to see if your '82 is an E12, that's what I did to confirm stuff years ago. I say that because my Buster is an '82 w...

It's been a month since this was posted; and no one has responded with any info? :shock:
You dudes use to respond a lot sooner; what happened? I know someone has the answer. #-o
I know I don't! Maybe you were hoping someone else would chime in? Yup, that's it. :roll:

Re: Sad News, Dean Cains

WOW!! I just read about Dean. As was mentioned, he was very free with his extensive knowledge. I learned how to wash the newer style headlights for Buster from him. I have a copy in my folder. I see he will be missed by all here, including me! God Bless & God Speed.

I believe the color is a factory Arktisblu? My spelling might be off. Nice Euro!
Did the car not turn over, or is it the battery?

I took my Buster, who is a Euro E12, to a reputable muffler shop; got under Buster & guided the mechanic while instal...

Hi Ken First, I like how we relate to each other,,mostly. But, there was no call to chastise me for letting Song know the answer to his question was already answered just above his query. I said, being a tekkie, he should know how to research his topic. That wasn't harsh at all! I hold onto that! I ...

Retaining bolt

I can't seem to feel the bolt holding the back seat to the kick panel. Can anyone guide me to it?
I just casually felt around for it though. In fact it was while I was driving! #-o So,,,a very casual feel :-$ !

Christoper or whomever:
On the E12 the rear seat has a bolt at the top of the kick panel. I haven't found it while lazily feeling for it on
Buster.
Are they there on my E12 E24? :-?
