Here's a couple I took today:
from a cosmetic standpoint, I powder coated the air box and (with coaching from HBChris) had all the grey parts tumbled and clear coated. The valve cover was painted with a wrinkle finish then the high points were polished. Vintage Sports refreshed the engine bay and HBChris helped me with placement of all under hood stickers
nice steve! but that expansion tank it too blingy - paint is satin black
Yeah when I had it repaired I thought it too nice to paint so I just keep it au natureal with some wax, I do catch some heat for it occasionally
Wing nuts on the Weber jet covers aren't lined up... that's a deduct.
...amazing...it makes my engine bay look downright amateurish...
I really need to step up my game and repaint the engine bay
Do I get points for trying? How about the filter screws...
Wow... Filter screws and clamps all 100%
It is a disease... I polished the oil cap one evening on the bench. Polish marks all in one direction? I installed it and they were 90 degrees to the line of the valve cover.... I re did it.
My two 70 E9's' Red with 3.5 10.5.1 compression and Blue with s38 engine Both very very fast.
Here's the engine bay of my car from 1976:
And here it is today:
Still learning about this one, but here's a look...
3.5l from an '87 735
New Getrag 5-speed
Battery under back seat
Air filter from 5-series
Cartridge-type oil filter from 6-series
Yes, M oil cap has to go...
this is a nice engine
type of strut?
that looks like a 74
does this count....
They removed the hood by taking out the pin in the hood hinge! Clever. No alignment probs when re-installing anymore.
That's damned clever! I like that idea!
Ireland Engineering. I have one in my coupe
Note to self, keep my spare hinges.
what I have learned.... keep spare EVERYTHING, broken, tarnished, bent, ugly. You will eventually wish you had never chucked it!
