    Dash and more

    How will leather hold up in the sun over time, compared to vinyl? I am thinking of re-covering the dash in leather instead of vinyl because it's easier to stretch and work by hand. I went down to Just Dashes because they are 10 minutes away, and Jeff said a rebuilt vinyl dash will outlast the...

    a couple headliner questions

    What material did you use between the headliner fabric and the ceiling, as shown in the photos? Is is a soundproofing or a heat shield, or just a foam insert?

    WTB: Dash Parts and '75 Rear Arm Rests

    Gruppe: I have finally sorted through all my parts since rescuing my coupe from the body shop. Some parts have disappeared in the 15+ years since I dismantled my coupe. Somehow 3 dashes disappeared, but the wood pieces mostly survived. The miracle is that so much stuff survived multiple...

    Channel felt- replacement product

    Thanks Gary. Product description says it comes in 96" strips. Is one strip enough for all window channels, or is it better to order 2 to be sure?

    WTB: Header Panel (Interior)

    Does anyone have one for a non-sunroof car? Mine disappeared in the 16 years since I dismantled the coupe. Any condition is ok because I will be re-covering it. The attached photos are from a sunroof car, I think. I need a non-sunroof. Thanks.

    long NLA now available at BMW again

    Here is is on W&N's website. For some reason I was talking to Carl about it around 2002, and mentioned that it was "metric firehose" from Germany...not sure if he was pulling my leg.

    Question: I'm running Carl's lowering springs up front, and I've heard you need to roll or cut fenders to accommodate Alpina staggers. Any insight?

    FS: 1972 Bavaria Parts or Project Car in Seattle

    Out of curiosity, why doesn't it run? Is it terminal?

    DB Couper is the OG and the inspiration. I wasn't dashing enough to be "Gary Couper", and don't like the Brewers or the Astros, so it couldn't be "Cecil Couper." Special thanks to @Markos and @dang for helping me change the name so I didn't have to start a new account.

    Gas tank renovated Here are a couple of shots with the rehabbed gas tank in place. Once you start restoring, you can't stand the idea of bolting beat-up 40-year old parts back on to the like-new shell! @oneills--I did fill in the rear reflectors (and the front amber ones under the turn...

    I'm back... Hi all, My on-again, off-again restoration is on again...and actually making some progress. See photos. I decided to go with Verona and I'm very happy with how it is looking so far. The car has been primed and the engine bay and trunk have been painted with a preliminary...

    The car was originally Sahara, with tobacco interior. The first photo in my first post on this thread shows the original color. Because it's a bare-metal restoration, the car is now in primer and has not a trace of Sahara. I've collected a complete cream-colored leather interior, though...

    Thanks Arde. So to be clear, the photos show Dave Crawford polishing the paint from the 90's respray? The result certainly is nice.

    Kfrito> how long has it been since you painted your coupe? Do you expect the color to hold up? I like the color but I'm worried about oxidation/fading with all of the red tones.

    Thanks Chris. Is Wayne out on the west coast with his Verona coupe? Coupe King seems to have a couple on his website also. And yes, I'm no longer in that one-car garage in Laguna Beach. Actually down in San Clemente now, with a 2 car garage that is nonetheless stuffed with coupe pieces.
