    WTB e12 front calipers

    @'76mintgrün'02 Tom, I'll take you up on that offer. I've been meaning to set up time for a visit. I think this will give me incentive to do so. I've never rebuilt calipers before. Is it a project that will take more than a day? James

    @halboyles how can you tell the difference between calipers? I'm having trouble finding a specific vented version as my search listings don't show different part numbers and only single model options. Was there a specific year associated with the vented version? James

    @goodkarmech I just found these at Summit Racing. They seem insanely cheap. What am I missing? https://www.summitracing.com/parts/aaz-19-227/year/1977/make/bmw/model/530i https://www.summitracing.com/parts/aaz-19-226/year/1977/make/bmw/model/530i

    @goodkarmech yep, that's what I'm finding out. These were cheap the last time I looked online, but I'm not wanting to pay full BMW retail... Yet. @halboyles I need the vented type. I have an older BBK upgrade that uses them and one of my calipers is starting to stick.

    I'm looking for a pair of good e12 front calipers, ideally new/rebuilt and ready to use. Thanks, James
  6. Gotcha. Talk to Mike, aka @joysterm. He just finished his and it's awesome. James

    Seating options other the Recaros?

    Off the top of my head, here's a list of seats I've seen posted on the FAQ at one time or another. Cheaper new: Flofit (I've got these and love them) Procar Corbeau Not cheap new: GTS Torino Scheel-Mann Used alternatives (not necessarily cheap, most will require some type of adapter): Scheel-Mann A.S.S. (not kidding, Google them) Early Honda Accord VW Recaro Trophy and Helios (early seats with the motorized bases removed) Fox body Mustang (look like recaros) Porsche 911/944 (with modifications) Toyota MR2 Pontiac Fiero Some Jeeps, can't remember which one's As for Recaros, they guy selling them from Thailand seems to have a good reputation. For rebuilt/reupholstered seats, they're a good value if you can wait 8 weeks.
  8. @joebarthlow, Here's the guy I bought mine from. The link I sent previously was for reference. https://sfbay.craigslist.org/eby/pts/d/vintage-bmw-e10-e28-ti-tii-bumper-mount/6855270239.html
  9. Here's a side view for more detail.
  10. @joebarthlow they attached to the car's bumper bracket bars. If you look at the bottom of the light bracket, you can see the C clamp top and bottom halves. Those grab the bar and the nut tightens everything up. James

    Seattle area cars and coffee?

    Late summer sounds good to me. I have no preference.
