Re: Fixed my saggy butt - rear spring replacement

Hey Bert, it was a great feeling to finally get at least the rear pair of these springs in #-o

I only took a short drive, as my power steering is whining and that's my next issue to address :-({|=

And you should easily be able to sell those Bilsteins here or elsewhere \:D/

Hmm :-k

Re: Fixed my saggy butt - rear spring replacement

Hey Tim, I actually purchased these from another board member who was picking up E12 chassis parts as they become increasingly harder to come by :-({|= Here's a link to their website, they are in Sweden :-" http://b-gsuspension.com/ I have attached another photo of the ST spring that's been on the 6...

Fixed my saggy butt - rear spring replacement

Yes, it's true, I've had these springs from Bert for years :roll: While doing some other work in the rear recently, I noticed rubber bits sitting on the spring perches, and thought that the pads were disintegrating :-? Turns out it was just the closed cell foam bump stops that apparently aren't even...

Re: Momo steering wheel mounting ring really required?

Thanks Dave, I have to admit that it looks much better than the one I made :roll: But the more I look at the setup and think about it, it appears that the only purpose for the plate in between the wheel and hub is to mount the horn button :-?

Gents, in my quest to install the old school Motorsport Roundels everywhere, I got hung up on the steering wheel horn button, and made my own. :-" It sorta came out all right, but I wasn't satisfied, so I bought one from Renown https://www.renownusa.com/ as their info told me that it would fit =D> W...

When I relocated the battery to the trunk, I routed the positive cable along the left hand side under the carpet, as there's actually a channel there seemingly for this purpose :-k
