  1. Haha, this is all reassuring. Thought I'd check here before hassling him. He's a nice dude.
  2. Just wondering if he's known here. Bought some Borranis from him on German eBay end of last year. He has a good feedback history, great communication. I gave him some extra time to finish them to my spec. But— the shipping has been delayed a couple times, and he's recently stopped replying. Just noticed he pulled all his other listings on eBay down. Theres valid reasons all this stuff could happen. I'm not in a hurry for the wheels, but thought it would be worth an ask.

    Compomotive CX 13" rims with Toyo RA1s

    Wish you had 4 of the fronts. These are gorgeous. Free bump!
  4. Personally, I'm just gonna cultivate some more fat on the underside of my arm.
  5. I’m not sure the Arby’s drive-thru line appreciates your intensity

    Existential Crisis

    On the west coast, a lot of enthusiasts (read not-wealthy) head to Tijuana for body work and paint. Los Panchos is a popular shop. I had rust repair and bodywork and paint done on a Corvair for $2.5K that looked as good as anything I've ever owned. I'm not sure how that would look to a collector, but it sounds like you want to enjoy the car reasonably. Not sure if theres a similar play where you live, but there's enough savings there that it seems worth mentioning.
  7. I knew I should have bought a Lotus. I'll leave the window be.
  8. Alright, you convinced me. This seems more straightforward than the blue binder made it out to be.
  9. Copy that. Think I'll leave them alone until I see a car where they fully recede. I've already uncovered enough gremlins this week....
  10. This should be an easy one. This photo shows the bottom/terminal position of my window. The top position seems correct. It rolls up to the correct spot, level at front and back. But when rolling down, the window stops short of receding fully into the door. When I'm driving with my arm hanging out of the window, the glass digs into my arm. Is my glass adjusted poorly, or is this normal on our cars? Are the Germans telling me to keep my hands at 10 & 2?
  11. The bolt it comes wIth is M5, fwiw.
  12. Did your set from Harry not come with a bolt/nut to replace the pin? Mine is snug, I can measure at the shop later.
  13. Also looks like there might not be. Wish I had one out to use as a pattern.
  14. Did you try one rivet in the center? looks like there might be enough meat for two rivets off center.
