Thanks! It's been a while since I did anything on the car, as moneys been a bit tight, and I got caught up in sorting out the windscreen leak on my E21. That's a whole story in itself! It looked like a little bubbling in the bottom corners of the seal, and then I took the screen out and it turned out to be pretty horrific! :
The scuttle panel has had several pieces let in, but the inner bulkhead needed a 1.1 metre section replacing, and so I've been seriously testing my metal forming, welding, and painting skills.
After all this, My Dad and I were putting the screen back in and managed to crack it! Fortunately, I have windscreen cover, but irritatingly, the screen is on back order until December! So it's now stuck in my Dads garage until then. He's obviously ecstatic about this, but I'm maing the most of it, and trying to sort out as many other little areas as possible. It's by no means rusty (By E21 standards) but there's plenty of little spots that need attention, so now is the time to get them done, seeing as I don't yet have a garage big enough to get a car in.
Then my scruffy daily driver E39 530d's autobox shat the bed, and being more costly to fix than it's worth, I ended up stripping and junking it. but on the plus side I replaced it with another E39, but a 540 manual this time! All good fun!
