  1. It's not.for sale. I was offering to show you the key areas to look at when buying.
  2. I'm happy to help if you want it. I have one up on stands if you want to come have a look at the common rust areas and what to look for. Just drop me a line
  3. Good luck e21 coupe don't exist. They are 2door sedans. But back to the point. Good luck with your search. If you have an questions, please ask What part of the country are you in. Are you after a driver or a fixer or a project? Was a series 1 for sale in gissy recently It may also be worth asking on the e21 nz Facebook page. There are only a dozen or so members but you may find something. . Good luck.
  4. It is confusing as it also says that all gaskets.we're recently.changed. Hmmmm something fishy there
  5. Where in the add is it stated that it's not run in? I don't think you could not build it for 15 so his price is fair. But it would be nice to at least have carpet.
  6. Suspension was gone yesterday. I have the manual conversion and front discs and pads I'm keeping the box for the e21 but the pedal box with slave and clutch lines drive shaft and maybe the gear leaver/linkage are up for sale. I think the owner did not bed in the pads and discs, went for a spirited drive with new suspension. Tried to stop but couldn't. Was a well.looked after car.
  7. Haha. Yep. I'm glad I could hep you find yourself.
  8. Hi There is a guy around that was a works simca tech in Europe. He is keeping a log of all cars that he knows of in NZ. He's a full on foamer. If it's any me
  9. yes but you are only reading half of the statement, the first half clearly states "Only plates issued by the Transport Agency and its agents are legal"
  10. This is my ally. I can vapour blast nuts and bolts but it’s a bit of a prick and my hands cramp up from holding them under the blast stream. But they do come out very very clean. Soda. It’s a slow processes and is very messy unless you have a cabinet. Cheap place to buy from are pool supply companies. My day job is in a council pool and we use bicarb a lot for cleaning and pool alkalinity. Different suppliers have different sizes. but we buy it by the 500kg pallet so my price is very different. Its feed grade not food grade so that part of the cost is not there. As you are not eating it no point in paying for it. Glass bead I buy it in 25kg bags. Im happy to help out and supply small quantities for a good price if you want a kg or two. PM me. Tumbler Im currently looking in to a tumbler. Enabling me to clean up bolts and small parts to go to platers after. All steel parts get washed in a rust blocker that is coating safe so gives a bit of time before rust starts again. Looking at videos on you tube you would have to leave the bolts in the tumbler for many many hours, days even, in order for any damage to occur on the threads. It’s a slow process. Plating in Auckland I have heard and seen good results from Terei brothers. They still take small job lots from car guys, many others do not.
  11. now photos of teh car please
  12. there is no difference in the wheel fitment between any e21 so the fact that is a 320a is not an issue. you will be looking for a set of 4x100 with a low offset. Think 13-18 but you should go and do a google search, there are many many threads on this subject. Go have a look at again there are threads over there. I also think there may be a thread on bimmerforums e21 section dedicated to wheels, most of the posts will have the wheel size and offset in the post, but photo bucket may have killed this photo thread. Do some research the answer is out there and is not hard to find at all. They are a bit of a odd ball in regards to wheels so it is a common question asked.
  13. Hello not sure if this is the correct place to put this But And yes i know they should be inside, but its also over 50m from the road and i had to make space for a set of customers wheels. Some theving dirty little F#$%N C^% has walked in on to my property, down my drive around the back and behind x2 other sets of wheels and stolen my TSW. They also stole my large pot of scrap lead i was saving till i got my old coal range cranking. As stated they are TSW Hockenhiem wheels, 1x centre cap is missing. They appear to be custom machined from blanks as they have no markings as to offset or PCD. They had 4x bridgestone Potenza 235/50/17. If any one is offered them or sees them for sale please let me know. Many thanks
  14. Yes I recommend all the PPE. Make sure your respirator works/seals correctly as well.
  15. there is also a e34 at pick a part in avondale
