    E34 seats in an e28 - right or wrong?

    Hi Gaza, Plenty of E28 electric seats in North America so plenty of looms from breakers on "mye28.com". If you advertise in the wanted section for a sports seat loom complete with plugs and ground you should get the complete set of connectors that you need to splice in a set of E34 seats. Regards, Mick

    E28 Bonnet Buffer Stops & Sealing Foam

    Hi Ivor, Fortunately it is a light reflection and not rust on the underside of the bonnet next to the right hand bonnet catch I replaced the bonnet on the Zobelbraun Eta last year, which also included renting a van to deliver it up to the trimmers / body shop, so cost + The body shop did a nice job of it though: They also did both bumpers, both wing mirrors, the wheel arch spats and the front valance along with the satin black on the front lip spoiler and the bonnet vent grills I still need to finish changing the side glass for green tinted and complete the chrome to shadow line conversion Regards, Mick
  3. Replaced the Bonnet Foam and the two Buffer Stops on the Diamantschwartz Eta. Seal Held in place with double sided tape and 5 push clips. Had to open up 4 pre-stamped hole locations in order to fit the push clips. Stop Buffer That fit in hear: Like this: And here: Like this: For a finished look like this: I know, I know the underside of the bonnet needs cleaning and the bonnet catches re-plating... All in good time. Regards, Mick

    E28 First Aid Kit - Boot Mounting

    Hi Tim, As far as I know the E23, E24 and E28 all had the same sized stowage and used the same sized first aid kit. I purchased a new first aid kit in 1990, which has an E24 graphic on the lid, which I have used in an E23, E24 and now an E28. Here are my two First Aid Kits side by side: Both First Aid Kit B and the same size. I have been unable to locate an OEM part number for the First Aid Kit. I obtained my second kit from "mye28.com" "Parts for Sale and Wanted" last summer which I collected at Tedfest in Mississauga . Regards, Mick

    E28 First Aid Kit - Boot Mounting

    Hi Jeremy, Thanks for your kind comments. This takes all of 5 minutes to complete so you know you want to... Regards, Mick
  13. There is an OEM Boot Mounting for the First Aid Kit as follows: The following items are all still available from the main stealers: Item 1 - - Holder Item 2 - - Fillister Head Self-Tapping Screw Item 3 - - Plug in Nut M5 Open up the right hand side of the boot covering in front of the aerial and look for the hole on top of the fuel filling point body seam: Position the Plug in nut (item 3) over the rearward of the two holes: Replace the right hand side boot covering and locate the plug in nut (item 3). Feed the fillister headed self-tapping screw (item 2) through the locating hole in the Holder (item 1) then screw it through the covering and into the plug in nut (item 3): Place the First Aid Kit into the recess such that it is held in place by the Holder (item 1): A cheeky little upgrade if you can find an OEM First Aid Kit Regards, Mick

    e28 moonroof

    Hi readie, I acquired one from the US via "mye28.com" a couple of years back which I subsequently refurbished and retrofitted to my Diamantschwartz Eta. The North American market cars tended to have more dealer fit options in order to make them more attractive and competitive in the US so they come up for sale much more often than in the UK / Europe. Try a "wanted" add in the Parts for sale / wanted section of mye28.com as this sometimes produces results too. Regards, Mick
