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.

Re: Sad News, Dean Cains

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...

Re: 1984 633CSi Rises again!

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"

What did you do to replace the rotted muffler? I have a similar (but not so severe) condition. I will have my local muffler shop try to weld that gap. Alternative two is JB Weld or similar. Last solution will be a replacement rear which would not be OEM

If the muffler shop can't do it as they may see too much rust, can I seal it up with tin solder which can be laid on with a hand held torch?
