Brakes were spooky, shifting horrible, steering squirrely, etc...

Brakes first.
Don't go if you can't stop.

New brake boost

Upgraded master cylinder to tii master

Up grading front rotors and calipers to 22mm vented rotors
(slightly larger than the tii rotors - in process)

Next - adding side draft weber.


All new braided brake lines

 

Upgrading rear drums to 250 mm E21 drums
(in process)

Yep, getting the axel nut off was as hard
I as remember it.

Upgraded 5 speed shift linkage
It has the 5 speed transmission upgrade but with
the original worn-out shift linkage - improperly
installed - none the less.

Now all new with Ireland Engineering linkage

 

 

The fun part coming up - The Aesthetics

Changing original steering wheel to Alpina steering wheel

Changing original 'steelies" (wheels) to Alpina styled wheels.

Adding tii gauges and clock.

Reworking door skins and seats - adding blue piping and new insets.

Bumper tuck - getting rid of black accordians

Cleaning up engine compartment as I go. It's a mess right now.

etc.

And so it begins, again.

Life is too short - enjoy yourself.
