In praise of c.d.iesel


Recommended Posts

I am in the midst of a complete front end rebuild and have had a devil of a time getting the struts to cooperate, as some may note from and earlier post. Before and during any involved project such as this I spend a lot of time on the faq learning from you all. A few days ago a fellow faq'er was at the same point having a hard time coaxing 25+ year old struts out of their tubes. After applying c.d.'s advice from that string of how to heat the tubes (or more specifically how not too), the strut nearly leapt out of the tube. Almost all of the advice given on this site is golden but c.d. sets the standard. His experience is unquestionable and freely given. He always provides necessary safety guidance in his clear and easily followed posts. As testament to his value to the site, note how many strings end with his posts. Once c.d. speaks nothing more need be said. Thank you Mr. c.d. for all you do for us (because we sure aren't teaching you anything).

I just thought we weren't allowed to speak after c.d. has. ;)

Thank You bills

I really enjoy helping others with the passion for

preserving, modifing, and gathering to meet total strangers

because of the love for a machine. Witness the 020202

Zentrum event, or any of the breakfast, lunch

meetings around the country. Read the thread

that's now 6 pages about all of our' what do you do' lives.

I've had the fortune to have loving parents - both passed

now as of 01-12-11, great school teachers/coaches,

shop forementraining me, M-B/BMW training instructors,

and a family of aunts and uncles who influenced

me everyday. Blessed with my uncle Maj. Karol Bauer,

West Point 1936, Bataan Death March, killed while

prisioner aboard jap hell ship in Subic Bay. Uncle

Karol's memory protects me everyday. I live and

try to interact with people in a way that these

people would approve.

thank you

thank you

thank you

again - I will credit my love of all things mechanical

to my mother who drove my brother and me to Watkins

Glen one hot July day in 195_? to watch Formula Libra

cars practicing, to my father who owned nothing but Packards,

my Uncle Eddy who was a dairy farmer in Hammondsport, NY.

and showed me how to maintain all of that equipment, my Grand Father

who showed me how to maintain everything and who also let me drive his 1955 Chysler 500 at the age of 7! .....

this this just a great place to come and get away from

'other stuff' and relax - chatting all things 02 - and related -

as I do so in between appointments showing customers how

to use their Bluetooth, Navigation, and other new technology

in their new BMW's

Work Safe!
