  1. I still have the set of four bottlecaps I bought from m42b32 when he was cleaning out the old old garage. The same old snow tires are on them some with plenty of tread and all hold air. I used them one season for winter storage but now just sitting in the garage. I paid $40, take them all for the same.
  2. Hey guys, I replaced my e30 Girling front calipers on the race car with some Centric remanufactured ones last week due to a slightly sticking passenger caliper that was not retracting and dragging the pads, likely due to a disintegrated boot. Before I return the old ones for the core refund I thought I'd take a look to see if I could/might rebuild them just to have on hand as spares. These were what came on the car in 2007 and have never been rebuilt, yeah my bad. The insides look better than I thought they would. Inner seals were fine. I was wondering about the pitting in the cylin
  3. Clearing out some old race gear: 1) Used RACEQUIP 6pt HANS camlock race harness. Pull-up 3'' lap belts, 2" shoulder belts for use with HANS (head and neck restraint), 2" crotch straps, snap-in connectors for lap and crotch straps, four mounting bolts included (shoulder harness belts wrap around the harness bar on roll bar or roll cage). Everything works and never in any wrecks. FIA tags expired in 12/2020 so no longer valid for racing, but still valid for Track Days/Driving Schools depending on your organization's rules. $60 obo 2) Used SCHROTH Left/Right Side Net with expired SFI ta
  4. Anyone have a late model e30 oil cooler and hoses by any chance? Mine met a tire wall it didn’t like.
  5. Clean car though a 325i would have been a better choice to sink the $8k into. This one is still an eta. The BaT records for the stock 325e have been in the $8-17k range. The two highest grossing have been a 1986 5sp 325e with 55k sold for $12,250 in April 2019, and a 1988 5sp with 62k just sold for $17k a week ago. That said e30s are getting harder to find, the sellers looks cleaner and is lower mileage, gas prices are going up, and some folks dig etas. Wonder if would crack $20k on BaT?
  6. Wow that’s clean! Congrats on the find.
  7. I’ll take the 12mm set if still available.
  8. Re pedalbox: maybe to help with heel and toe? Adding pedal extenders and bending the pedal arms for heel and toe was something some Miata folks would do. Depended on foot siize, cramped footwell, and all that.
  9. Looking for a used Honda Eu2000i or 2200i generator or other quiet reliable alternative inverter generator to take to the track. Figured before I look at new ones ($$$) I'd see if anyone here has an old one gathering dust they'd like to sell. Thanks!
  10. Another vote for hanging on to the forum. The mix of threads on car projects, other projects, and other things of interest works. Tech and diy information from folks who get their hands dirty, aspirational / inspirational projects, and local classifieds from folks you can trust are things to be valued. Covid hasn’t been mentioned but this has had a disruptive effect on gatherings and narrowed a lot of focus to home, increasing work demands if you’ve kept it, and all the needs and importance of family with school disruptions if you’ve got kids. Even though events still happened last
  11. Yeah thanks I did see this. I found a set of spares a while back so I’m good. But I also haven’t bought any used e30 spare parts in a while so I’m getting twitchy.
  12. Nice job on the weight! My e30 race car gutted and caged with the m20 is around the same. I could go lighter but need to make 2710 minimum with driver to be legal.
