  1. I'm using the rad from an M3 roadster w/S54 so ordered both coolant hoses for that car but only one of them fit, so used the other stock E46 M3 hose as well. Sorry I don't remember which hose was from the M3 roadster but unless you are using that rad it probably wouldn't fit anyway. BMW's radiator hose fittings are kind of cool but it does make it difficult to find hoses for custom jobs.
  2. @carbuilder723, the engine looks amazing! Nice touch with bronze the trumpets. I have the an S54 in my Z too, remarkable engine, here is what it sounds like with just the header.
  3. I'm not sure how much I can add, I have about $150 total in my power steering setup, did everything myself. I don't remember running into any real problems in putting the parts together, it works very well and I'm pleased with how easy it is to forget that it is even there. Could you possibly name a couple of those companies that carry splined couplers? Those would have made my installation even easier. Thanks
  4. Interesting, being able to use the standard windshield seal is sort of a must, probably not a difficult problem to solve. Sure would love to get rid of my original sand pitted windshield.
  5. I love the wreckers, hard to beat a great price like that.
  6. Right in that corner is where the factory filled with lead to seal up the join between the panels and to smooth out that area so the rubber windshield seal can be water tight.
  7. That is the kind of pitting that has gone too far, you'll never stop the rust from coming back and and trying to weld on to that rotted metal will be very difficult. If it was me I would be cutting those pieces out and making new ones.
  8. Any chance you can post a pic? I can't remember ever seeing one like you're describing.
  9. I don't remember it being all that different than the vinyl, the rear wheel housing is the hardest, make sure you practice that a few times before you apply the contact cement.
  10. Yes I did about 4 yrs ago, the set I bought was black leather with grey stitching and it looks fantastic, anyone who opens the door mentions the leather smell. I'm very pleased with it.
  11. Just found your thread, the car looks beautiful and that engine package much be a blast. What kind of machining was needed on your OBX? I have one and only needed to invert gears and replace the cone washers.
  12. Hey, looks good. Don't forget the brace between the T/C rod mount and the rocker, it really stiffens up that whole area.
  13. Those seats are perfect. Is your roll cage a kit that you're putting together or are you bending your own?
  14. Go ahead and stitch the floor pan/rocker, the seam in the middle of the wheel well doesn't need it unless you are replacing one of the 2 pieces that make up the wheel well. Just make sure you seam seal all of you welds when done.
