  1. Cheers Tim. Just got to clean it up and fit. Perfect
  2. The only BMW I've ever owned and will probably ever own. Never selling.
  3. All back together. Running much better. Adjusted throttle and stop so idles smoother. Pretty pleased with the white as well so might continue with the smaller rusty brackets. Really want the correct red fan for itso if anyone spots one can they let me know.
  4. High temp paint then high temp lacquer as not 100% on the colour so didn't want to commit to powder coat just yet like the plenum and rocker cover. Bit of a test for both colour and quality of paint.
  5. Managed to get 20 minutes to pull the fuel rail and injectors as the new 8 x 13 hose has arrived so I can make up the lines.
  6. To be fair it was only on the hidden bits that go under other pieces. ( holes where the rubber clips fit) This is only to get the really big chunks of rust off. 10mm etc. I wouldn't use it on the showing face and I'm literally just breaking the loose bits off
  7. Warm soapy water to wash general dirt. Wire wheel on the big chunks of heavy rust to pick them off. Meguiars 205 cutting compound and DA with soft buff 2.0 pad Meguiars 105 polish compound and DA with medium pad.
  8. Still sorting out some small niggles. Injector fuel lines have perished with 2 leaking badly. Noticed when I ran the car up saturday morning. While the manifold ifs off I’ll clean up the throttle body linkage. Some parts are NLA but I notice the lever has been modified and had an extra spring which had broken anyway so I’ll remove that and the additional arm which seems to have been added.

    To enclose or not to enclose?

    Have the same issues with mine. Now though they look awful on the top shelf. Must dust them tonight. Thanks for the reminder
  10. First cut over the 2nd hand bumpers from Tim. Came up really well.
