    Captive nut and battery tray

    Not without its problems but with some investment it's getting there.

    Hello newbie here saying hello to all

    I've never seen one as early as that. Looks a great buy
  3. Here's my battery tray, which isn't bad, but the hold down thing has corroded and been discarded. I understand there's a captive nut behind but is it accessible to be able to remove and replace it such that I can drill out the corroded metal and slot a new captive nut in underneath? I will be starting a restoration thread on the car eventually.
  4. Hi My engine hunts when the accelerator is at around 1500 revs, when warmed up and varies by about 800 revs up and down. I know it might be an air leak but it's odd that it does this at this particular speed. It's fine to drive. Any obvious thoughts? Thanks

    Rust curing on e28s

    Definitely dinitrol. Maybe I got a bad batch of waxoyl a few years back but no matter how much I heated up the can and even with some thinners it soon blocked up within the lance. Dinitrol do a good cavity wax in aerosol form with an extension nozzle.

    Correct stereo for 1987 lux

    What do you think about these as a convincing match? In 12v version without the CD player https://www.continental-automotive.com/en-gl/Trucks-Buses/Interior-Cabin/Infotainment/Radios/FM-AM-Radio-with-CD-USB-Bluetooth
  7. Hi What would be the most likely dealer fitment for a 1987 lux e28? I guess it would be Blaupunkt but there are so many models. Has anyone fitted something new that looks convincingly old? Thanks

    Who does original seat material?

    Thanks for your help. At least i can rule it out and look for a near match trim for a local upholsterer to do. Have sent you a pm also
  9. Hi I have found a local upholsterer but do you know where they can get the original oyster beige type velour fabric for my 1988? Is there a known supplier? Or even a 'kit'? Thanks

    Beige cloth seats wanted 1988 e28

    Yes will do. Mine are that light green and in Herringbone too so just need some beige ones to turn up

    Sadly Steve is unable to help but I will use him to sort my timing belt so a good contact. If anyone else has some front and rears let me know.

    Thanks very much for your tip. I've just dropped him an email. Much appreciated Howard
  13. Hi I was wondering whether anyone had some beige cloth seats in vgc that they were looking to part with. I have a set but they're light green so not 10 pc correct.
