  1. Looks like a good, unmolested example. Yes, I see a little rust but nothing terminal ( check the front subframes). A simple cleanup will make it look so much better. It has AC, the interior looks good, window seals are in good shape, door cards are uncut.... I think you have a very good base to start with. Here's a thread I started about getting such a car back on the road. Enjoy the car, they are very easy to work on and a real pleasure to drive. Good to have you here, Ed Z
  2. Sounds great, Kris ! Congrats on all the progress you've made. +1 on Jim's comments. I've assumed you mounted the pedals such that they would match those of your more modern track cars? Ed
  3. Not sure if it applies to all NK, but the 2000CS cars are trimmed with laminated walnut, though the lower dash piece (grab handle) is solid walnut and not laminated. You can see in this google pic how the lacquer is peeling from some areas. Here's some threads from e9Coupe.com about refinishing the wood trim. http://www.e9coupe.com/forum/threads/wood-refurb.25383/#post-194834 http://www.e9coupe.com/forum/threads/do-you-have-custom-interior-wood.20028/ http://www.e9coupe.com/forum/threads/wood.24300/#post-181358 Here's a good one about re-laminating the wood. http://www.e9coupe.com/forum/threads/help-with-dash-wood.24938/ Hope this helps, Ed
  4. Very interesting, and I like that the cover isn't touching the car; but I agree with John... you would have to anchor it to the ground or a strong wind will wreak havoc. edit.. tie down kits are available for hard and soft parking surfaces. Ed Nice website... https://kubbys.com.au/product/small-car-kubby/
  5. It does appear to be one to be parted out. Be sure to salvage the Blaupunkt radio and Silver Dollar gauge pod; that shifter knob is also one that's harder to find. The dash doesn't appear to be cracked? If it's in good shape, someone will pay a pretty penny for a good, early dash. Ed
  6. I have one of those Alpina airbox brackets, Jason. Lemme dig it out and copy the dimensions for you. Ed
  7. Good info to know, Jeff. Thanks for that tidbit. Ed
  8. Jam a push pin into the side of the button to hold it in place...temporary fix. or this:
  9. For simplicity, I'd fabricate an Alpina-style bracket like this one Ed
  10. That would be a turbo on what appears to be a CAT diesel ? How a numbskull got a wrench in the works is beyond me....
  11. NICE scenery! way jealous... Thanks for the fixes, Steve, now get back to vacationing. Ed
  12. Excellent... love the disc brake workmanship. Here's one of my fave's... Ed
  13. Very cool. A'73 white Roundie with Silver Dollar gauges... I know Ray will like this car, too Good luck! Ed
  14. oh crappppp... that sucks. Any details that may keep others from falling victim? I do hate a thief... Ed
