Power Steering reservoir decals .

Post by olympia57 » Tue Jan 19, 2016 6:01 pm

I have replaced all the OE decals on my engine bay but couldn't find the three individual items that are on the power steering reservoir cap until I came across these on Ebay.
They arrived in a couple of days from Czech Rep. and are very good quality , and all for very little.
I have no connection to the seller other than as a customer , thought it would be of interest to some of you .

The ones in the link look decent, but they seem to be a satin/Matt finish un like the OEM ones and the ones I supply which are gloss.

Did these originally come on all E24s? My 1987 M6 does not have them. I was thinking about adding them but, if the car didn't originally come with them then I will leave them off.

some e24's only had a 10mm circle/dot sticker saying ATF only, i've only seen that type on UK Highlines from 1988 onwards. all the older ones had the sort of three

i have them in stock should anyone want a set

The adhesive was not very good on the origional labels, when the ATF heats up they come off over time.

engine decals by Pukar Designs

Post by rhanley 635csi89 » Tue Jan 26, 2016 9:24 pm

Today I received the five engine compartment decals I ordered from Pukar Designs, they look great. I ordered the retrofitted A/C R134 decal. Should this new decal be installed over the original R12 decal (R134 decal is half the size of the R12) or should the R12 decal be removed?
The R134 decal would also fit in the space to the upper left corner of the current R12 decal. See attached. What's every ones thoughts? I'm leaning to remove the R12 label as it's ratty looking.

Also attached is a photo of the 10 mm PS reservoir lable "ATF OIL ONLY" (can just make out the lettering). I'm replacing this with the 3 piece label from Pukar.

Glad you're happy with them.

personally I'd be inlclined to fit another red R12 one, i do have them in stock If you want, you can sen that one back and i'll send out one which have here

also with the PAS, i can send you the 10mm Orange dot.

finally, any chance of close ups of the 2 black ones you have and dimensions, i've been thinking about doing one for the emissions for the e24. I am guessing your car is a 1987-89 car ?

i have one on file but yours look slightly different

Kos, I'll think about any decal exchanges, thanks for offering. Confused on the retro air, my thoughts were you want to indicated the A/C was upgraded. I'm get the red one as well and have both decals. I didn't see the ATF dot on your web site.

My car is a 89 635CSiA, build date 11/88. vin 3268571
I did my best to measure accurately.
The size of the large black decal is 10.5 cm X 6.5 cm.
The small black decal is 7.8 cm X 4.5 cm.
I don't have the best camera, If you need better photos I asked a friend to take some for me.

My take on the retro fit AC sticker was for cars that had it fitted at dealer rather than the factory.

But it may also apply to cars that have had the conversion to they later type gas as well

I'll consult with a technician who was in the dealer network but now works for Munich Legends

Not all of what I do is on the web site, a friend should be updating it for me but he's taking his time and it's long over due now

As for the photos, thank you. They seem plenty good for me. I'll check from the PC later when I'm home.
