Re: Lubricating the windshield wiper arm system with?

Here's a shot of part of the linkage, this is not something you would see under the hood (or cowl area) without some digging :roll: But you can see that these pivot points would need some sort of lube that penetrates, don't think any type of grease is gonna do the trick :-? I also discussed this wit...

Re: Lubricating the windshield wiper arm system with?

Seriously, crickets :-?

Geez, I expected some sort of recommendations, thinking I'll use something on the lighter side, don't want to gum things up :-k

Re: New shoes for M6

Hey Pablo, given the shadowline treatment you have done to your M6, think I would suggest something like this, think it was called hyper black or black chrome, something like that :-?

Sadly, don't have these wheels anymore #-o

Re: WTB Rear Lower Spring Perch for e28 based Bilsteins

Tazzarti, I've got this pair, but I would presume that they are for E12 based, as that's what I have and would not likely have any E28 based parts :-?

I put the steel tape there so that you can see the inner diameter [-o<
