  1. @Driv3r had them made. He sent them to me because we're buds 😁
  2. These were fashioned after Heritage Racing badges. They are sized to fit on an 02'. I'll mount them and post pics tomorrow.
  3. Received these beauties from @Driv3r I know, they are not '02. But,.... 😁
  4. There are three basic components to the turn signal assemblies: The housing, the lens and the bracket assembly (bracket, lamp holders, reflector...) The housing is the same in both Euro and US versions. The lenses are not. The bracket assemblies are not. Also, the lenses are "formed" to seal tight against the metal housing. There is no known method to remove the lenses without warping/destroying them.
  5. Sorry, don't want to be a naysayer. But, most 3D printer filaments have relatively low melting points. Also, not much is known about their flame, smoke and toxicity properties. The engine bay environment with the high heat and various gasoline/oil fumes will be very hostile to many of the available 3D filaments. Structural integrity and chemical resistance would be problematic. What if one of these 3D printed fuse blocks catches on fire or failed while in operation?
  6. Unless your black slats were painted black, they were probably anodized black. Most dyes used for anodization are organic. They are susceptible to fading over time due to UV exposure. The slats are fading at different rates since they were not likely made in the same batch.
  7. This guy is nuts. But, ingenious. https://www.msn.com/en-us/autos/enthusiasts/watch-car-wheel-made-out-of-clear-epoxy-get-put-to-the-test/ar-BBXkorq
  8. I have a Quickjack. I use the jacking points along the sides of the car. Front. Back.
  9. Hello Paul, If you or a friend has access to a 3D printer, a model for it is here: https://www.thingiverse.com/thing:3102569 Best regards, Trieu
  10. I use a wood carving knife with a broken tip. The tip is very thin, yet, strong enough to go between the rolled bezel and the clock body. The flat broken part of the tip is just the right dimension to provide some lift when twisted. Insert the tip of the blade, twist gently, move about 1/16", and repeat. I typically have to go around the clock 3-4 times until the bezel becomes loose enough to be removed. Reclosing the bezel is a bit easier. Provided the bezel has not been majorly butchered during removal, it should sorta snap back onto the clock. Turn the clock face down, get behind the bezel with a flat screw driver and gently push the "pried" section of the bezel down. Do not use pliers. The front of the clock bezel is very soft and easily damaged.
  11. Hold the tool with the index finger on top of the black knob; the two leaf spings between the thumb and the other two fingers. Position the spring loaded center pin directly over the hand and the two side "grabers" just under the hand/needle. Squeeze the two leaf springs. The two side grabbers come together with the spring loaded center pin pushing down on the top. Pull the hand/needle straight up. I do not think the tool can be used to re-install the hand/needle. I pushed them back in place by hand. Have not tried it with the speedo or tach needles. May work. But, I do not know.
  12. If you have the correct tool, you can pull off the minute hand and position it to be on the hour and then press back into position.
  13. @pdx_02 You have some mad skills. It is not easy to turn plywood across the grain and end up with smooth and glossy finish. Outstanding! BTW, look around for some nice enamel BMW keychains. Trim off the chain and make your own roundel inserts.
