E28 Bert

What have you done on your E28 this week........

Recommended Posts

On the Zobelbraun Eta, I changed the passenger side rear door glass from clear to green, replaced the window guides and all weather seals, removed chrome window trim and replaced with shadow line,  removed the chrome door side mouldings and replaced with shadow line door side mouldings.

 

From this:

To this:

One down three more to go :roll:

 

Enjoy your weekend.

 

Regards,

 

Mick

So today a package arrived from Felipe in Spain:

 

IMG_2297.JPG.e6d71a2c07f1a1f6793a4b4b2bf9d18b.JPG

 

Which contained four new old stock items, two left side and two right side:

That contained these:

Which went where these were:

And now look like this:

I quite like the contrast against the Zobelbraun:

Something a little different in North America so that you stand out from the crowd :wink:

 

A right hand drive E28 Eta just blends right in :ph34r:

I'm going to be looking for a set of really good chrome side trims Mick - will you be selling those?

 

Hi Dan,

 

Sorry, keeping then for the Bronzitbeige Eta when it comes back from body refurbishment and paint.

 

The Zobelbraun Eta appears to have been garage kept for most of its 89,000 miles as the chrome trims are still fairly straight and shinny.  The Bronzitbeige Eta however, has been an outdoor car so has faded and dull chrome which has a real "lived-in" look.

 

The last time I checked all of the door moulding chrome trims were still available and all but one of the window chrome trims were too.

 

Regards,

 

Mick

Also found the cause of the window motor not working, this plug to the motor was dis-connected :shock: :

 

IMG_2356.JPG.029651c9ddbffee379fe6bf011a66a49.JPG

 

All motors, mechanisms and linkages lubricated and working like a well oiled Swiss watch :D

 

All clear door glass now replaced with green sun dim glass, along with new seals, guides , shadow line trim and door mouldings.

 

Next up is to fit some Dynamat to the inside of the door skins and replace the door liner foam with some Dynamat before replacing the vapour barrier and replacing the door cards.

 

Regards,

 

Mick

it's been a while since my last post and lots going on but the Little Donkey is ready for action.

 

Flat out all weekend, rebuilt the brake master cylinder only to find out the linkages were the culprits for the brakes sticking on, wish i'd read you post first on that Dunc! :sad: 

Interestingly enough the picture does show something going on but it was not the cause but was it affecting the brakes ?? I don't knowIMG_9635.thumb.JPG.0b69f31513cb3133092971c62b83c2ee.JPG

Full service, all fluids replaced,  waxoiled the inner arches and inner sills, new "thing" joints on the back axle, forgot what they are called now

 

Summer wheels :D

 

Just needs a dam good clean and polish now

I went to visit the race car at the bodyshop - it's had a coat of paint, so now it's going through some reassembly before I get it back. New windscreen from BMW collected/dropped off to bodyshop. Shouldn't be toooooo much longer before I get it back, and can start work on building the engine.

 

Also went to collect the M5 from hibernation at the weekend. First time driving it since pre-Xmas I think. Once I'd added a little extra electricity it fired straight up and drove like a dream. Need to rebuild the PAS pump soon and trace a very slight coolant leak.

My m535i has a slight leak when I got it as drops would collect in undertray. Tricky to trace initially as would only do it cold. Was water pump and warmth of engine would evaporate the drops. 

 

No noise or other symptoms.

So tried these 17" Hartge rims on for size this week.  I have had them for a while but not got around to trying them on the car, they were always one of my favourite rims.  But I still think the Borbets edge it :)
