On the road again in a M6

Post by 88m6 » Thu Dec 27, 2018 1:44 am

Still a ways away but she's road worthy now n smogged n registered !
Still have to finish front grill shadowline n spruce things up there, then I will drive it for a few years before I repaint it n turn it into a garage king.

But got her out today for a 20 mile ride thru the back roads n all went well,bit of s shudder when stomp it in first n second.
Launches fine but get a shudder at higher rpm's in those two gears.

What do you think of theses OZ Racing wheel that came with it?
Have a set of staggered style 32,s ready but these are growing on me.
Before u ask ,yes partial respray at some point from right rr qtr around to left doorpanel, not greatest match ,but it will get taken care of upon repaint at some point.

Nice pick up ! The wheels actually look quite good to my eye. Far better than what you sometimes see people using. Of course, you cannot go past a nice set of style 32s, style 5s, or AC Schnitzer Monoblocks for these cars.

Looks great, especially the shadowline work. I would vote for the style 32s over the OZs.

WRT the shudder, have you checked motor, transmission and diff mounts? How is the guibo?

Hey neighbor lol,
Changed driver mount as it was cracked but not had chance as yet to inspect all else or records to c what's been changed already n when. That's first as previous owner was on top of things mechanically ,almost.. n have the records going waaay back.
Maybe this week as things r slow.want to get to those front grills n new hibeam lamp n that will complete the shadowline .

Great to see that your latest project is on the road. We should get together one of these weekends and show the locals what a couple of real (hennarot e24s) cars look like!

Sounds great Paul . We have three licensed cars at my place every weekend but one of our drivers has a little time before he can drive on his e24 solo so probably limited to two from our shop. I will stay in touch. Looks like it’s going to be wet for a little while.

Finally getting around to finishing shadowline. Put pass side back together now on to drivers.
While I had it apart decided to retape all harnesss' as they just disintegrated n used some split loom for bigger harness.
Also cleaned up the bottle n repainted canister and clean clean cleaned whilethat side was apart.
Also replace high beam ,was cracked.

Kidneys are so blasted they look like metalflake.lol
Will have to do something with those or replace $$ maybe after repaint.

Pablo, didn't notice that the bumpers were painted until this post [-(

I also noticed that the paint appears to be rather void of any chips, repaint :-k

And would you mind going through the process of making the trim shadowline [-o<

Unless of course, you are buying all of the shadowline trim and installing, a pricy option :-({|=

Lookin' good Paul =D>

Hey Paul!
Looks Great with ShadowLine & the OZ wheels.

Please 'splain, Lucy, I'll see if i can get you sorted [-o<

You mentioned that most of the process has been covered in this thread, but all I see is a statement that you are converting to Shadowline :-?

Does look great though :shock:

Greetings~ that is one good looking M6! I'd keep the OZ wheels until you get bored. Gives your M6 a sporty and distinctive look...something different for sure.

Thanks it's getting there.
Yes the OZ have grown on me like I said but I do have other sets I'm contemplating that are sitting in shop
Staggered 32's good shape but need a refinish
Staggered BBS RF considering a refinish like pic
Oh and the 17 square Alpina's which I use for the "other"car

I really like the BBS RF if I can force myself to spend the $ n get them refinished like pic. I think the black bolts and black arches with black center cap complements the shadowline well. What's holding me back is one needs a repair n several wheel shops won't touch it. And will never find a single replacement center section.

That's all on hold now as I will return to engine bay to remove valve cover n get new wrinkle finish to match intake I had done,paint fuel rail etc n install red strut brace finally .

Not necessarily this specific thread but in several separate threads over last 10months?

I always log in first and when I try to reply or start new post I will go thru the process,text n photos and I try to submit it brings me back to login page and all Is lost and have to start over. It's random and I don't know why. Last two posts have been as it should be but when I was trying to reply to this post the other day on several occasions it was happening for example.
I deal with it if I have enough patience left for battling the day.

Paul, I forwarded this issue to Brian, let's see what shakes out [-o<

Frankly, never heard of this type of issue before :-k

Pablo, talked to Brian, and here's his response =D>

1. Try recreating a new shortcut by typing in the name of the site from scratch. There were changes made some time last year, when a number of us were experiencing something similar to you, having to constantly log in, as it would not keep you logged in [-X

2. Try adding "s" to "http://", for a more secure linky :-$

3. Try a different web browser, Internet Explorer for sure is not very good ](*,)

HTH \:D/
