Re: 1980 633CSi No Spark

Riley,
Congrats on bringing it back to life. Too bad for us that you did a significant amount of parts replacement without zeroing on the actual no-start cause. Maybe you did, so for knowledge sake, please let us know.
Thanks,
Ken

Since Dean is no longer with us, is it possible to restore/repost his pictures?

FS: 3 old floor mats

I've got 3 old mats for sale: driver and two rears. Real OEM carpeting. Greenish. The black backing is coming apart but the carpet is sound. BMW logo on driver's mat and the heel pad is intact. All I need is postage from NYC to you.

Isn't there a VIN plate on the left side of the dash? I'm in the US and don't know if they do different things elsewhere.

Re: My 6'er- Cocomats

More pics
My phone doesn't do the color justice. It is a chocolate brown. They are happy to send color samples (I think they get $1 each)

I also have a template for a trunk mat, but until I empty that in the summer, It will wait. I may use a different material back there with a solid color.

Re: My 6'er- Cocomats

I just received my Cocomats. They are great people to work with. I started with their existing 635 template, but after a few revisions, it fits like a glove. I used the Coco color 06 which is a beige dot on a brown background. The heavy rubber backing should settle in over the summer as the car warm...

Re: Cheap gas..

No LPG cars in the USA. Or very very rare that someone imported or created. I think warehouse forklifts may run on LPG, maybe a lawmower. You have Gasoline or Diesel. In the rural US where I live there are no emissions inspections either. Only a safety inspection every two year to make sure your si...

Don,
Many thanks for the waxoyl tutorial. I remember the days of Ziebart but never saw it applied to a 6'er. I guess this is the modern equivalent.
Cheers,
