Hi James, just doing a heater myself, once you pull it apart to remove the radiator you will have all the cross rods with the flaps attached will fall out.

These are covered in a thin foam sheet that will have disintegrated to dust. Once you clean the foam off to replace it you may as well get all the yellow rods and all the other parts replated including the riveted parts. Thats pretty much it, there's not much to them but re-assembly is a pain getting all the rods to align at the same time. Careful paint job before assembling and it will look great.

Thanks, I guess I’ll give it a go! I’ve got this far haha

I’ve been digging through my boxes and boxes of hardware checking which little fasteners and screws I’m still missing and realised I do actually have the original key surround! Haha

Of course it’s not in perfect condition but I’ll see what I can do about that..

That key surround is from an e12. It fits but not perfect.

Hmm.. Ok thanks. So the e9 always has the “fahrt” text? Do you have any good detail shots of the original?
I’m happy to make do with the e12 unit until I can find or make a better fitting replacement. I actually prefer the look without the text..

Pedal box is pretty much done, just a few last little details to install. Been pretty busy lately but will start on the heater core and steering column soon.

Did a little assembly of the headlamps. Everything cleaned, lubed, powder coated and zinc plated.

Waiting on the correct screws for the chrome rings. Need to find new o-rings for the wiring cups too..

Hi James, The foot pedal box looks very nice, was there a piece of insulation behind the gas pedal rod? Mine came with it, keep up the good work, BTW Where did you get the rebuild kit for the clutch master cylinder?
Thanks
Victor

Ahhh, you are right. I did have some insulation there, but mine was so disintegrated I didn’t realise that it does need to go on before the accelerator rod.. oops..

I intend to order this piece from cs-Werk. As well as a few other insulation pieces.

The master cylinder kit was purchased from Wallothnesch I think.

So the insulation parts from cs-Werk arrived. Pretty happy with them, material quality is better than original and only some slight differences in the form as shown below.

I found my original insulation (not in as bad condition as I remembered so here are some comparison pics.

I assume the one cs Werk produce is for an automatic pedal box so a small piece must be cut out for the clutch and wiring.
