    WTB: Shifter boot Leather in Black

    Anyone have a nice used leather boot laying around? New would be ok but not my first choice. The original one has shrunk to the point of not installing properly in its home.

    Needed a "Go By"

    Appreciate the pointers on the fuse block, I quickly found out how special that thing is and decided to stick with it. From what I recall 1 wire alternators self regulate internally? I'm not sure how the original 3 wire system was cut up to adapt to the one wire, or why it now has an ignition...

    Needed a "Go By"

    Needed a distraction from the electric stuff, fought this little guy for a couple hours but the gas pedal is now resting in new bushings. Also tore out the tar sound deadening under rear seat and was quite pleased to see only minor surface rust!

    Needed a "Go By"

    Two solid weeks of reverse engineering the poorly executed electrical mods have drained much of my enthusiasm to restore. 1. One wire alternator conversion involving an early 80s Bosch ignition controller is leaving me baffled. 2. Wiper and blinker stalks updated to more modern units...

    Battery Location Decision

    So I've got a poorly done Battery relocation in the trunk and a missing battery tray in the engine bay. I'm considering moving the battery back to the original home but would need to source a tray and mounting hardware that is seemingly NLA on the market. Anybody have parts or ideas for engine...

    WTB - Early Model e9 Thin Grill

    On the scale of what these grills look like after 50 years of abuse its quite remarkable to have one with just a few dents. Keep this one alive! I've got one of each style and leaning towards installing the black 4 post.

    Motor identification in 1970 CS

    I'm sensing a trend. ;) thank you. With 100% of my cars containing non-original motors it begs the question of why so many fail. I've heard these engines are sewing machines and run forever but that is not my experience so far. Overheating problems perhaps kills many of them? Is unleaded...

    Motor identification in 1970 CS

    :D ha! Ok that seems a little more realistic. Thanks for clearing that up. Now to dig into the difference between Bavaria motors and e9 motors. This is a fun turn of events considering my car should have had the 2800.
