Rack & Pinion Re-Du (Alpina Gr. 2)

I posted up a couple of photos of the work that was done on my steering, there was over 200 hours of labor putting humpty back together again.  I really had no idea what was involved,   The steering rack itself need to be shortened 2.5" - every part thereafter was fabricated.  The bump steer they told me was the worst they had ever seen and would have been sketchy to drive (read, down right dangerous).  These are some photos of the work.  The guts of the rack are out of an e-21 Motorsport rack w

2019 Alpina Calendar

Working on trying to get one of these, I am sure it will be expensive.  My car is October, November and December so I need to get one - just because.

Makes me happy.....

Pulling the garage door down, felt like 300 degrees today here in Northern Cal, sun beating in the garage...snapped this one.  These little m10 motors really are pretty amazing whether it be a stock o2, tii, turbo....or this - the ultimate iteration of that motor....(well maybe the ultimate would be the same/similar motor with a turbo (Schnitzer 1.4 turbo)....

Pins

Pins

Not really a 'pin' person, over the past few months collected these two, which I think are really cool.  Kugelfischer Einspritzpumpen and ALPINA 30 Jahre (year) pins.

New Kidney/Center Grill

These are (and have been a while) on back order here in the US.  I snagged this from a German vendor, with shipping it was a bit more than the lowest price I have seen out there (but not a whole lot), Turner Motorsport has then listed at $250 but again back ordered.  I had thought about sending my old one that has dings/dents to Speedway Metal Finishing (I hear good things about them), but regardless of how good they get the metal, you still need to have the part anodized, really hard to make it

AlpinA Gr. 2 Cooling & Oil System Mock-Up

Doing some 'mock-up' work on my radiator/cooling system and dry sump oil system.  There is a method to the madness you see on the various car shows as far as basically building the car then tearing it apart, then painting and putting back together.  It definitely saves on drilling and cutting through fresh paint which is never a good thing....paint is over a year old now so maybe not so fresh. I feel like i have the radiator and expansion tank just about right, maybe need to raise the expan
