Jrcalvin, Thanks for the correction about sideskirts. I just had info from a seller who wasn't sure for 100%. I'll post the spoiler manufacturer if I'll find any stamps when I'll get the parts. Meanwhile, I got the new headlights to be installed. Old ones out of car: http://img160.exs.cx/img160/6397...

Thanks for the answer.
Do you have a picture of speakers installed? Are those speakers shallow enough not to touch body metal? What speaker covers did you used?

It's a semi-annual event in Toronto West, a lot of interesting cars if not to buy, but to look on.

And, as usual, one or more e24 for sale, check the car list.

BTW, when I got my car, the owner told me "it's my baby, all original here" and he was damn right, even control arms bushings were dated "1986". The original headlights rusted out, and I was lucky that there was no original tires.

It's a great looking car, josecoy. I can only imagine, how much work and $$$ was spent on it, since today I put in Excel table my car expenses (only parts); after less than 1 year after I got it it's almost the same money that I paid for the car itself. And my car is not even close looking to yours....
