    Need some front brake calipers, so please check your stashes. Terry tells me they are ATE Dunlop single piston with external bridge pipe. Mine are pretty badly pitted and have some other problems, too. Thanks. Bill
  2. Bryan Purves (bryanpurves1@gmail.com) in the UK is building a run of TiSA bucket seats. He's had trouble sourcing the maroon/red vinyl but is very close to securing a source. Once the color, etc., has been finalized he's will have to buy a large amount of material, much more than he needs for the seats he's doing. I told him I'd put out the word to the NK forum in the event anyone might need some of this vinyl. Feel free to contact him directly with requests. Bill

    It's a non-factory art car. https://www.charmcitylegal.com/dennis-simon/ I hope it sells for a lot so my wife will quit giving me the evil eye every time another restoration bill arrives.

    Looks like TiSA 995197 will be auctioned by Gooding Co. at Amelia Island on March 8. Event begins at 1100 and is viewable as a live stream. Gooding charges buyer's premium of 12% of the first $250k and 10% on remainder, so that will be added to hammer price. Not much info available from the auction company yet, but should see more in the next week or so. https://www.goodingco.com/vehicle/1965-bmw-1800-ti-sa/

    Was working on the windows for #133. Fronts both are pretty good, but both rears have lots of scratches too deep for me to remove with basic glass polish. Anyone have a lead on right and left rear windows in excellent shape? Also, any opinions on whether scratches can be taken out? Thanks.

    Photocopy is what I have, too. Sorry if I confused you by calling it a reprint. Bill

    OK. Please let me know if you come across one in your travels. Bill

    Stephan, any chance you have an extra copy of the TiSA supplement to the 1800Ti owner's manual? I have a reprint, but would like to get an original. Thanks. Bill

    Rick, thanks for the link. I've tried to put most of the progress pictures of #133 on this thread. After the body gets painted we should have some more available. Bill

    Ordered some new ones from Autoteile in Germany. WN had the right but not the left. Thanks. Bill
  15. My restorer, Terry Forland, asked his retiring painter to do them, and he did a nice job. I'll ask Terry if he might be able to handle some more. Bill
