    volvo brake upgrade

    I have the IE Volvo brake upgrade and have been running E30 14” wheels for about 10 years. I also have a 14 in spare but am considering going back to a 13” spare with a narrow tire or a Mini or Miata temp spare to fit in the well for a flat floor.

    WTB Schrick 292 camshaft

    I had a 304 cam in my ‘74. It was very drivable in all types of conditions and a LOT of FUN! Sent from my iPad using Tapatalk
  3. Good idea! Sent from my iPad using Tapatalk
  4. Makes sense. Where did you mount your gauge. Sent from my iPad using Tapatalk
  5. Thanks Vespa Guy. As I said, my space is pretty tight next to the XMSN, but I guess I could get a sensor in there. Where did you mount your gage? Sent from my iPad using Tapatalk
  6. I just looked at the downtime collector pipe and space looks awfully tight to get an oxygen sensor vertically between the XMSN hump and the 5 Speed XMSN. Can the oxygen sensor be mounted horizontally? Sent from my iPad using Tapatalk

    car insurance considerations?

    With Hagerty, you must have another car as your daily driver and you must have a lockable garage for your classic. Hagerty encourages you to drive your car for excursions, club events and maintenance, while other classic car insurance companies limit you to car club events and parades. Hagerty really wants you to enjoy your car, not turn it into a trailer queen. Sent from my iPad using Tapatalk

    I have the IE Volvo brake upgrade on my ‘75 02 and per IE’s recommendation left the dust shields off. Works great! Sent from my iPad using Tapatalk

    Car cover recommendations

    The Bavarian Autosport covers are good. They used to have a lifetime warranty on their ultimate covers that I have redeemed a couple of times over the years. Sent from my iPad using Tapatalk

    Cable ties

    I purchased the cable ties from the dealer a number of years ago. I have not looked at Real OEM, so do not know if they are NLA now. Eastwood Co makes a fabric tape similar to the OEM tape wrap that works well. Sent from my iPad using Tapatalk

    Trunk design Trivia

    FYI - New OEM quarter panels do not have the reinforcing doubling sections over the wheel well. My quarter panels were replaced with new OEM panels last year by our local BMW dealers body shop to fix buckling of the panels above the wheel wells from a minor rear end collision in 2008. The outside panels of both quarters was fixed, but the inner panels were still buckled. Under vibration from driving, the outer panels buckled again just like the inner panel. The trunk lid and rear panel were not affected. Everything fixed now like new. The good news is the the rocker panels were in great condition. Sent from my iPad using Tapatalk
  15. Correct on the Hunter machine. I am spoiled. I work with folks that know how to use it. Ideally you should not be driving on tires over 8-10 years old. If driving in anger, 8 years is about it. Sent from my iPad using Tapatalk
