    Dash Maintenance

    I would also avoid using cleaners or preservatives. I use a cotton towel to wipe off dust and water if it needs cleaning. I also cover my dash with a towel when its in the sun. Oh yeah, also, don't drive on bumpy roads, never put anything on top of it and always talk nice to it when you get in and out of the car.
  2. Another update. Cleaning up the engine compartment. I didn't want to go with the typical black firewall and wheel wells so I mixed gloss black with light gray to get an "industrial" looking color. Turned out okay I think. The air cleaner is just sitting on the carb for the photo and will get repainted, I don't like how it came out. Just picked up some wiring and will tackle that next. BTW, this is the first "selfie" I've ever taken. Might be the last too...

    CSL Values

    If they replaced the CSL with a 2002 it would fit with that group of cars better. That CSL has no business being compared to those cars.
  4. He sold these for $500 so why not ask $4k for the 2002 set. https://www.ebay.com/itm/BMW-M6-635-CSI-Center-Kidney-Grilles-MUST-SEE-/323554221304?hash=item4b55559cf8%3Ag%3A1mEAAOSwvjBbEyIR&nma=true&si=62LWT1KDu0QfddH%2Ba0cP3hil4%2B0%3D&orig_cvip=true&nordt=true&rt=nc&_trksid=p2047675.l2557
  5. If you use a RED screwdriver from the tool kit of an E9 you might get mugged while taking the grilles off!
  6. I got side-tracked fixing my daughter's E90 wagon after an accident but I'm back working on the truck now. Painted the running boards with enamel to make touch ups easier and now I'm cleaning up the engine compartment.
  7. I think it still has original paint under the dash too! He needs to move the Fastrak off the dash, it makes it look like it's still driveable.
  8. This thing keeps eyeing the truck in the shop... impatiently waiting it's turn.
  9. It's been awhile. Here's some photos of progress. I was going to clear coat the faux-patina but decided to just cut and polish instead. The next owner might want to take the very solid and straight body and give it a good paint job so not clear coating it will make it easier. I'd cut the front half of the truck when these were taken..
  10. Probably a "let's steal this trailer" and then find out what's in it later. If they're lucky the thief will abandon it somewhere...

    Need opinions...'74 tii

    I didn't see a price posted but that's all that matters at this point, for me at least. I just bought this '74 tii. Thought I'd make you feel better about that one... everything has a price.

    Holy crap! I saw this thread about three weeks ago and just clicked on the last page to see what's going on. What the hell?
