    headliner - material and reuse

    Hi Mark, I just finished installing a headliner in a 1974 sunroof coupe. Actually quite easy. Ask SF Don for the material and send me a PM if you need help. Again, it's easy but you will need patience, and a bit of trim has to come off the car.

    E9 for Sale

    Needs only "light restoration", what the heck is light restoration?? It looks like the driver-side fender is about to fall off. -Well, at least it does have the dual headrests and the solid wheels, thank goodness for that!

    OK, so not only is that an absolutely bad-a$$ e3 (I'm thinking 3.0si with 4-speed) but reading the ad requires the intelligence most millennial college graduates would not possess. I mean they are explaining the philosophy of a proper automobile, could you see someone doing that today; it would...

    Selling my '51 GMC... eBay was a bust

    If I had a truck like the red one, I'd get a personalized plate that reads "OLD PAINT" and drive whenever my e9 was not in service (no comments please)! That is an absolutely cool ride exactly the way it is!!! Maybe put a Johnny Cash sticker in the rear window :cool:

    Hagerty on CS value increase

    They are still way off on the valuation IMO; an e9 in "excellent" condition regardless of it being a 3.0 or 2800 cs is well over 100K as we have all seen from the BAT auctions. They have the CSL pegged at 300K, which is a little high I think. Markos, there is a great book out there called...

    Dash and more

    Alice, If you're not going completely original then I think you can go where you want with the interior as long as it's simple and well made. In my opinion and from my experience the closer you make things to the original the better they fit and look but there is lots of room in that statement...

    first personal flair

    I may move it to the e9 but I thought it might be fun on the 4 runner

    Alpina replicas

    I have those :) They are round and hold air. I have nothing negative to say about the product and even though they ship from the USA they are made just off the Ho Chi Min trail.

    '74 E9 Carpet installation question

    I have a canvas template I made with exact measurements for a 1972- if you think it will help just let me know- pay for shipping to you and back to me- I made the template(s) in case we ever found the correct carpet. Chris M could tell for sure but I think the 1974 was a 1-piece carpet and...

    For what it's worth; BMW coolant in 1990's cars and up and Prestone type for all earlier.

    1969 2800 E3 - Bringing The Turd back to life!

    I wish my e3 was that clean! I'm actually moving the tundra coupe into the penned in area at work so I can finish up the blue coupe and I may try to do a simultaneous rebuild of my e3 and the tundra, it will be like shooting heroin and cocaine at the same time. Hopefully I won't end up like...

    Plastic Seal between front fender and rocker

    #11 does not look right but it might be. Please measure the exact amount needed, I think I can spare enough for 1 side.
