Re: Mystery spot in the toolkit box

Thanks Bert, my tools are indeed correct, original, and minty fresh, even after 38 years \:D/ But all of this actually brings up yet another question, for Flex :-? Flex, your first photo shows a different tool tray, which does not have the space for the "mystery tool", nor does it have the clips alo...

Re: Mystery spot in the toolkit box

In response to Bert's response, the early tool kits indeed had an aqua colored cloth, and without the BMW Roundel logo \:D/ But it also appears that there were more than just 2 versions of tool kits out there :-? As you can see in the photo, I also have the early foam in the upper left hand corner w...

Re: Brake calipers question

The caliper paint has held up very well, can't say the same for the rotors, which of course have rusted where the pads do not contact them :oops:

Re: Question / Picture refer for A/C Drier

Not sure if this will help, but you can see in this photo, the drier is held in place by a hoop type bracket, secured to the inner fender well, again this is vintage 1980 :-k Also, here's a link to realoem, might want to take a look there for the MY you are trying to figure out 8) http://www.realoem...

Re: Brake calipers question

I think the E28 calipers (front and rear) are only single piston floating type :-? But looking at your rebuild photos of the rear, I can now see that those are indeed E12 calipers, which are actually 2 piston fixed type =D> Bottom line, the correct kit should have a total of 6 lines for the E12 chas...

I do want to address this sooner than later, but since I'm technically "off the road" right now, awaiting tags, I can hold off [-(

I need a few other bits and pieces, maybe I'll just order a film kit from BavAuto as well :-k

That doesn't sound right, fanatic [-X

The E12 front brakes are 4 piston fixed calipers, but the E28 does not =;

Dang, thought you could see the 2X lines going to the caliper in this photo, but you can see the 2 rigid/fixed pipes :roll:

Re: Is it really worth the $? Reverse light switch

Thanks all, pretty much agree going with FAE =D>

Dug, not leaking, that I know of, just don't have any reverse lights and it's not likely that both bulbs took a header [-X

Is it really worth the $? Reverse light switch

Gents, opinions please on the drastic difference in the price for a genuine BMW reverse light switch, versus FAE, whoever they are :-k

Really, $6 or $33 #-o

In fact, maybe I should just check with Ralph in SoCal, he's probably got a bag of these \:D/

Hey Tommy, thought of that, but I really wonder how well those film type protectors work, if you actually take a direct hit with a rock :-k Do you have a particular brand or shop that you purchased them from :-?
