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!

Guess I am still in the Stone Age. Haven’t caught up with the second generation cars yet.

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.
