  1. That one looks like it survived a fire! Lordy! Poor little guy... probably kept up for a mile or two... **sniff!** #vacationhumor
  2. One meter might be enough to do both sections of the driver's seat. The material is 52" wide (and 39" = one meter of course)... grain is length-wise on the roll. If this is a direction you want to go, shoot me an e mail: [email protected] I snagged some blue to eventually repair my original seats in the F Bomb. Working on obtaining correct 1969-73 saddle/tan stuff too - but it may be a few months.
  3. Ah... yay! It's fixed! Dunno what the issue was. Thanks for the feedback!
  4. Still 2-3 weeks out. I'll be clanging cowbells and singing from the mountain tops when it arrives!
  5. Special shout out to Jeff Chang at German Autowerks for letting me know about your health stuff!
  6. We offer them for $133.00 each. New and Genuine BMW. If you choose to buy them from us, I'll personally kick $20 towards our friend HarryPR's Cancer treatment fund! Just be sure to leave a note with your order, saying you saw this offer/reply! http://www.bmwmobiletradition-online.com/bmw/showparts.do?model=2583&mospid=47141&btnr=51_3318&hg=51&fg=05 HarryPR's donation site: https://www.gofundme.com/f/j6cs58-helping-harry?utm_medium=copy_link&utm_source=customer&utm_campaign=p_lico+share-sheet+exp2
  7. If you know Harry... you know that the happiness of others fuels his own happiness. He's supported and given so much to us and our community... Let's give some back! Steve... can we sticky this up top? You can help here. He could use our help. Follow the link, please! https://www.gofundme.com/f/j6cs58-helping-harry?utm_source=customer&utm_medium=copy_link-tip&utm_campaign=m_pd+share-sheet
  8. +1 for BJ being one of my favorite BMW people! Lots of 1600s got 2.0 liter engines installed by their owners over the decades. I'd consider that a good thing, overall... the later engine blocks are a bit stronger, and if the car has a hydraulic clutch - even BETTER!
  9. Well... if you can get a cheap set of ones that need a little lovin'.... now you know that you can bring them back to life with about 30 minutes of elbow grease.....usually!
  10. You might be able to save what you have! I've been able to restore some pretty rough ones using nothing more than #000 steel wool (NEVER anything coarser, though!) Rubbing compound makes great chrome polish, too when used w cotton towels. before and after photos:
  11. +1 on Toby's thoughts. I've worked alongside folks that have scanned and manufactured 3-D printed parts (primarily decorative emblems, ignition keys, etc) and there are still some limits to what can be done, with regard to high stress parts and (of course) the costs of manufacturing. Great for mold making... not so amazing for finished products that have to withstand real stress.
  12. YES. red arrow is direction of the material off the bolt.
