The seats are 38 years old. That is hard to process.

Took awhile to pick this color, I wanted something to lighter so it wasn't all dark brown. However I didn't want the original pearl beige. This color when looked at with your eye looks dark, however if you shine a flashlight on it it looks pearl beige.

Original Mocca color is a bit darker:

Re: FUBAR 535e"s" 6/25 Porsche Rear Koni, OBC Fixed

Post by LeiseyJr »

Car has Koni 914 Rear Shock (thanks dad for the machining skills). Finally got the car running cold and A/C working fabulously. It has the junkyard dogleg in it now as well, keep the miles off the rebuilt one.

The Adapter to make it all work:

Also finally got OBC backlight working. I spent like an hour desoldering bulbs from dead backlights to make a good set. One burnt out classically on installation. Got mad and clobbed solder so now we have a custom single bulb backlight.

Window motor died at a friends house. Hit it until worked

Back to my old steering wheel

It was doing great, has decided it wanted to try to overheat out of nowhere.

Projects in progress to be continued when overheatin ordeal is addressed:
Finish the Koni 8610-1437 bullshit in the front
Oil Cooler (just for the hell of it)

The headgasket has been replaced and it now has a US radiator. Car is staying cool. However still gets a bit warm with a/c on and its 100F out, the fuses are also melting. I think I might have reached the point where this winter I will have to restore the A/C system.

Also found a mint AFM at the yard. The airbox is in horrid shape. You may ask, “why not swap mint afm to my refinished airbox?” Well that would make too much sense plus it fits the paint job. Really happy to finally have found a good working AFM. The car it came out of had been sitting since 2008 hoping it has a lot more life in it.

Anyway. Here it is.

Re: FUBAR daily M30 528e 7/27 Koni Race Insert V.2

Post by LeiseyJr »

So after the first front Koni Race Insert, we took away some changes that needed to be made. First the collar nut needed to be machined right so the strut didn't blow. It also needed a softer bumpstop, and trimming it was not a good idea. So this time around we fixed that. Very pleased so far. Rides much better and feels like my friends Ground Control Equipped E36. So super happy about this so far.

I took it on the bumpiest most pot hole filled back road I know. It did fantastic, car didn't get upset. My girlfriend filming bouncing around on the worn comfort seat springs she was a bit upset.

At this point, I have probably spent more then just buying Ground Control and being done with it. However what is the fun in that?

Great video. I dig watching the tags hanging from the mirror swing and sit sideways with the centripetal force. Pushing that car.
