  1. I have tried that, and there are some, but it turned out that shipping alone was 310 pounds, so I'm probably going to have to try and find one locally
  2. Thanks, I was thinking of doing wire brushing myself, might still do it. Let us know how that dash holds up😁
  3. I see, hopefully I can find a decent used dash even if it has some smaller cracks, if not I'll try find someone capable of at least making it look decent 😂.
  4. I have an idea on how to fix the cracks and such, the actual metal of the dash is rusted though🌚
  5. 😂, The whole car is just a sad rust bucket at the moment, previous owners clearly didn't like it as much as me I guess😂
  6. For some reason the message got deleted, "Hello again, Initially I thought my dashboard just had a bunch of cracks in it, but after removing it, I realised that the backside of the dash was rusted, and in some places, to the point where the mounting tab fell off. I just wanted to know what you guys think I should do to fix the dash, should I sandblast the back and apply new foam, maybe wirewheel and then do the same, or are there any other techniques I could use to save this dash, or should I just give up on it and try to find a better condition two piece dash. The only issue I am having with the last option, is that it seems to be very difficult to find a RHD two piece dash for sale, especially one willing to ship to South Africa, since the shipping expenses would be large."
  7. Yes, so that cracked fuel line is connected to the ouput of the fuel pump, but is disconnected from the KF. I have new fuel lines connected to the KF and to an external fuel pump (5 series I think), it has a replacement plastic filter for now. But don't worry, I just want to attempt to start the car, to get an idea if the motor is good, before I remove the engine for body work
  8. Just thought I'd update this, in case some lost soul needs to find a replacement screw at some stage in the future. I found the perfect screw at a store 5 minutes away from my house luckily. The screw in question is an allen head sump plug/screw, thread M12x1.5, length from the underside of the head is 12mm roughly. I found these 2 on mcmaster, 1 is stainless and the other regular steel. https://www.mcmaster.com/3600N31/ https://www.mcmaster.com/97313A109/ This is the one I got: http://www.autofast.co.za/product-range/sump-plug-m12-x-1-5-din-908-allen-key-type/ Last question, how much oil does the kügelfischer take? Should I just fill it till some oil comes out the top?
  9. Finally managed to get the sucker out. Had to use a dremel with a carbide tip and slowly grind away the broken bit. Then I used a screw extractor (tappered reverse threaded tap) attached to a breaker bar to finally crack the bolt free. Now I just need to find a replacement, I think it's a bit too much to ship it from the US, especially when I can probably find a replacement locally. I'll post the specs of the screw if I can find a replacement
  10. I thought 11 was a bumper piece maybe🤷‍♂️ You are correct on 12 (realoem item 16): https://www.realoem.com/bmw/enUS/showparts?id=2582-EUR-10-1971-114-BMW-2002tii&diagId=34_0812 Thanks
  11. You are probably right on these ones, and that is what I was thinking as well. I don't think 4 & 8 are exhaust manifold shields, they are pretty thick metal, I thought they were some kind of mounting bracket, but I'm not sure. 12 I couldn't find any bracket like that near the steering column on realoem. I think you are correct, seems like number 3 here: https://www.realoem.com/bmw/enUS/showparts?id=2582-EUR-10-1971-114-BMW-2002tii&diagId=71_0188
