Re: Positive feedback for Bert Poliakoff

+1 for Bert. Bought a lovely tail light surround that was perfect. Next time you're in NYC, I'll buy a round.

Re: 1982 CSi Resto

Because nearly all of the chrome has been keyed to help the paint stick to it I'm having to replace it - never paint chrome! I had hoped that the rear bumper would be retrievable but sadly someone has had a go with a sander. These parts almost look very good until you look carefully - if re-chromed...

Re: What did you do to your E24 today?

I looked longingly at my Garage Queen and the mid-30's temp and hope it warms up soon. I've got some "flat on my back" work to do: diff mount, holey muff and busted pitman arm to attend to.

Re: New member to the forum.

I've got some of the white fog at the bottom of the windshield. It is either delamination or deterioration of the inter-glass layer. Unless it spreads or is an impediment to a state inspection, just leave it alone.

Re: 1987 635csi passenger fender quarter panel nose panel part out

Rear exhaust doesn't seem in interchange. Mine was a one-piece from front to rear and I'm told to save shipping costs, BMW went to a 2-piece...What I really need is the rear silencer that has 2 pipes in and two out.

Nice AN fittings and stainless! I didn't know they make versions with hose clamps. Is there a particular nomenclature or part numbers for them? Source?

Re: 1984 633CSi Rises again!

I love Cali cars. So clean compared to our Northeast salt suckers. It even takes a few weeks of spring rains to scrub the streets to where it is safe to bring the garage queen out of hiding.

Install a new Lemforder Differential mount. My car had the original mount, cracked and rock hard. The car sat a little higher with the new mount as the rubber was not compressed.

Re: Car covers - what brand do you have ?

I have a NOAH fabric from BavAuto. Fits snug and the customer service is great. They are a sales agent for Covercraft. I also bought a Stormproof made by Coverking from Autoaccessories garage. Fit was way too snug and it didn't reinforce critical area around the bottom of the bumpers.

What about air shocks? I still run standard shocks on my 84 633 so I do not have any experience with them.

Just awful news. I was going to visit him later this month as I knew he was in the hospital. My sincere condolences to his family. One of our last PMs he mentioned his list of to-do's so he clearly had a positive outlook in spite of his medical difficulties. Here's an obituary: https://newtownbee.co...

I wonder if a leatherique treatment would have helped the reinstall process. I have also seen a plastic shopping bag used between the leather and the padding as a "slip sheet"

Awesome condition. Are the seats original leather, restored leather or redone with new?
