  1. Nice VW Trophies. Those have a 4 x 8mm bolt pattern, right? 😉
  2. Once you have mounted your Recaros, please don't hesitate to post pictures. 😉
  3. Hi everyone Production indeed had started by August 22nd and all kits were shipped yesterday, September 24th. Production was basically four weeks. I hoped I could have done it in three. But, oh well. Sometimes small jobs get pushed by bigger ones. 😉 Everyone shall receive their parts by early next week. I made 4 extra sets (four cars / 8 seats) and they are available at the regular price of 180$cad (roughly $135usd) + 30$cad shipping. Steve at Bluntech will most likely have a few sets fo sale too. Purchase Steve's first. Then when he's out of adapters, contact me. 😉 These adapter fit all bolt patterns found on Recaro seats. 4 x 6mm mounting 6 x 6mm mounting 4 x 8mm old style mounting (VW seats most of the times - Trophy) 4 x 8mm new style (longer distance between mounting points). All required fasteners included and they are zinc plated and grade 12.9 Thanks all for participating to Clinton's group buy
  4. Hey Steve. 1.6 engines were not US models. So, seeing that you are in NY, probabilities that it is a 1.6 are pretty slim. That being said, if you really want to know the whole truth, simply take the engine apart and measure. No big deal, especially that these motors are not worth much these days.
  5. The engine in the picture is clearly a 1.8l late e21 motor with the dreaded K-Jectronic injection.
  6. The car is only missing those mirrors, Mark 😉 I bought some Vitalonis 10 years ago, as well as those with the swivel pods. Much easier to instal with pods. https://www.ebay.com/itm/113417640654
  7. I used to have TWM TBs and SDS fuel and spark management two decades ago. They worked well. 😉
  8. Here. "suction device with pump" https://www.realoem.com/bmw/enUS/showparts?id=1733-USA-07-1982-E21-BMW-320i&diagId=16_0007
  9. Bought mine too in the early 90s for around $500 from Bavauto I think. They are stainless steel and will turn to a nice yellow. Back in the days, they had a design problem which I believe was never solved. The collector touches the idler arm bolt. Not a biggie. Just grind the bolt and the nut.
  10. Confirming that the production is going on. Also confirming that the adapters will fit these three bolt patterns. 6mm / 6 bolts - 261mm distance with third hole 25mm in between 8mm / 4 bolts - 261mm distance 8mm / 4 bolts - 297mm distance - New style seats. There will be a left and right mount. All mounts will be shipped in raw form but with all countersunks done (8 countersunks per adapter). Mounts can be "buffed and textured" with a 3M pad. Painted over. Or polished. Thanks Lee
  11. Hi there. There are half a dozen 2002 afficionados that I know of around Montreal. Even one who ended buying with my ex-1974 Chamonix white that I had 27 years ago. The days of Roadfly.org, European Car magazine and Bavarian Rennsport. ;-) https://www.montrealracing.com/forums/showthread.php?908510-Not-Another-2002-Project-Ernests-1974-build
  12. Hi everyone. It is my understanding that the GB is now closed. I have already put 30 sets in production, which reflects the exact number of orders. There will be no left overs. As soon as parts are ready, I will post pictures of parts ready to ship to Mike. Thanks very much for supporting this GB. Lee
