  1. I would give a shout out on the S2forum. From what I remember there are quite a few guys on there running UR's and RR's that have done renovations and complete rebuilds.
  2. This was the route I wanted to go down with my '39. After painstakingly searching for ballasts, bulb holders etc. I acquired all the kit to do this conversion only for my MOT man to flag it up as an advisory one of my adjusters was goosed Still passed it but in the end I thought sod it and purchased some Xenon's ! Would be interested to know if you plan to fit the oe washer system ? Personally I don't really think you need it and I will not be fitting one to mine.
  3. Hi Phil, I already have these parts mate. These are the two gaskets that sit at the top of each headlamp. The gaskets I have already seem to stop just as it reaches the indicator section then you have a flat section that sits on three pins and goes round the indicator section. As you can see in my pic the top piece comes to a little step the goes down to meet another rubber piece that goes round the edge of the indicator. Arrowed bit in second pic
  4. This is the gasket Phill. The rubber portion that goes round the indicator section. Part number seems to show the complete headlamp or not recognised ??
  5. I don't have one at all on one of my headlights
  6. Hi Phill, can you give me a quote please fella for 1 X 153729-00 And the one for the opposite side. Sorry do not have a part number for that as its missing Thanks, Chris 153730-00 ??
  7. Apologies if my thread title is confusing It is actually the gaskets that I require only I called them seals ! Now my gaskets have arrived I seem to be missing the ones in the pics ! Hoping you can buy these separately so I will send Cotswold BMW the part number and see. 3 gaskets in total per headlight.
  8. Cool I've got them all then Thanks for the input
  9. Thanks. I have ordered two top ones and two bottom ones but was sure there was something missing. Have you got a part number or pic of the one that runs round the side ? This is the bottom ones I have purchased.
  10. Take the hit and sell it whole to someone ! Breaking is HARD WORK ! I have never broke a BMW for parts but ended up doing this to my old Audi when I couldn't reach (at the time) a sensible price for it. Long hours in the garage carefully removing parts for resale is really time consuming. Obviously your 'in demand' parts will be first to go but some parts I had for almost 18months I tried to get £1800 for my Audi at the time with no luck whatsoever (but lots of interest in parts) Broke it (inc the shell) for 3.5k ! I wouldn't do another ! Any car ! My Audi by today's prices would probably worth around 5k now
  11. Just a quickie ! Is there just one seal at the top and another at the bottom on facelift headlamps ? Just ordered two for my newly acquired Xenons but not sure if I have bought the correct ones as the top one doesn't seem to fully wrap round the top of the headlight. Pic for reference
  12. They may not be anything to do with the mot but that did not stop my local (not so) friendly mot tester from giving me an advisory last year that mine were rusted through ! You can imagine how annoyed I was when I replaced them (around £35 each) and found nothing wrong with them (and the hub had to come off to fit them)
  13. I might go down the route of the hard polish as I already have some decent quality hard polish. I like the idea of spray but concerned you will lose the initial 'sheen' unless you used extra fine wet and dry again which is a bit counterproductive.
  14. I had my headlamps polished last year and was well impressed (for a short while). Read in a few places about restoring the uv layer after these have been polished which I did not do. Not sure if this is just rubbish or a valid point ? Also cannot find anything conclusive as to application ? Sprayed as a clear lacquer ? Your thoughts gentlemen
