  1. Thanks to all of you guys with the info. I checked the car out just now again and the bottom seam looks very close and the top I’m just gonna leave as is. They didn’t want to repaint the whole front for me and as long as I know that is wrong and I’m OK with it I’m not gonna sweat it. I’m pretty sure one time before I’ve had a car with the front clip replaced and the bondo there cracked after a while. They didn’t seem to want to use the high temperature filler either. Next time I’ll know better. Thank you guys again
  2. Is there body filler between front panel and fender? I always remember the top seam being filled.I think it was even flush or maybe it was some kind of rubber stuff but my body shop is painting the car now and it looks like there’s at least a quarter inch gap on the bottom part. And they are saying that originally it had a gap. And over the years it got filled by other body shops. Thank you in advance for all of your help.
  3. This has a few new parts as pictured, five speed and 320i head. It’s a California car with absolutely no rust. Runs and recently had electrical system installed. It was involved in an insurance deal and there is a front clip from a 76 or that is available for $650 also

    1970 with front clip removed

    the shock towers are still intact. I forgot to mention. It has purple lowered springs not sure what brand and it looks to be all totally rebuilt including stainless steel muffler and all the switches are really tight

    1970 with front clip removed

    Yes it is a five speed and also it’s a bigger E21 engine from 1978
  6. This was a running car just needed electrical system finished no rust
  7. I refurbished my other side but I’m looking for one of those 70s and early style shallow dish, not the ones that come on the 72 and 73 years. I know where to get the grill slats so as long as it’s pretty decent and not broken maybe it could be cleaned up by my body shop
  8. Thank you for all of your help I am was hoping to hear from somebody regarding my need for a front clip. My shop is fixing my car And they’re having trouble finding one so I thought I’d ask here. Someone helped me a little yesterday hopefully he’ll get back to me again.
  9. Entire front clip needed for 73 or earlier I got into a fender bender, actually a hood fender and front smashed up, the radiator even got pushed into the fan. So my body shop is looking for the entire front clip. I guess part of it is the apron also. The car is at California West Coast auto body in Los Angeles.
  10. I think I found some information here that I could go with anybody have a second opinion
  11. So I’m going to go with the electrical fuel pump now but I’m not sure which wire to splice it into I’m sure it is somewhere under the dash or is there a place I splice it into on the interior of the engine compartment? Thank you a lot for your help
  12. Thank you, I did call garagewerks and he suggested the electric fuel pump. I guess I can make it now thank you for the suggestion. I don’t have a block off plate so I will just bypass it and leave it on there I’m sure that would be OK for now
  13. I just drove to Ireland engineering and they didn’t have the right information for me there. I am in Los Angeles. On the Westside and I called Pep Boys in AutoZone and they don’t really know what I want either
  14. My original fuel pump went out and I am replacing it with the higher flow output one from the six-cylinder engine I think. I see that it needs a shorter Rod/shaft, I am going to cut this downto the right size. I read one of the other blogs about changing it. Are there any other suggestions I have a little paper gasket And some of the strong gasket sealer and I will use. I’m not sure how to attach it because the studs are much longer. Should I just put a bunch of washers in there so thatI can tighten it? I tried buying the original fuel pump instead of making this conversion but the fuel pump has a really short neck and won’t clear some of the cooling lines i’m thinking I should go to an electric fuel pump and get a block of plate, is that the preferred way now a days? Thank you very much for your help in advance. Al I’m trying to make it to the vintage in two days
  15. I don't want to mention what kind of medication it is but it involves a guy with the really dirty 2002 that decides to wash it and after he washes it he feels better because it's clean.
