      So it turns out theyre not the only sets. The prototypes are obviously the only prototype but they were a SHORT production run before they switched to long tubes because of peak gain on dyno. I am friends with the owner of RD. I will be setting up RD soon on r3v as a vendor soon, and am working on possibly a fresh run of early model body kits as he still has the molds. He actually has a lot of old parts that are NLA on the shelves still, just ask him.

            I asked through their website before as I tried to decide a "tribute" car. I got a cold shoulder. If he rrally does have some NOS E30 please LMK/let your friend know. I would get another E30 to make an RD car.. I love the kit. I would be proud to have am RD and an ACS car.

              He has the molds for the early model kit still, and he and I have talked about making the kit again. He is open to running a group buy for new kits IF the molds are good. He needs to check and make sure the molds are still good. I don't know what NOS e30 stuff he has on the shelf, I just know there is stuff on the shelves. He has ONE e36 wing left, for a 4 door, along with these headers. I just met him recently and haven't had a chance to go over his stock yet. We have focused on test fitting the shifters, as I needed a shifter, along with a batch of wings he found and now the headers.

                Obviously you stole my sheets, along with my mtech fabric. Please return the fabric asap, and keep the sheets to make up for the shipping cost of the fabric.

                  Collect? More like catch and release lol. I keep balking at cutting my carpet to install.

                  This one is copy of the one on the right in this pic Raul posted



                  Jim, too bad you sold the Mtech II vert Jim, the dead pedal above would have been the perfect pedal to hack up.

                  But he used a different design that's more like Alpina dead pedal the last time I looked at his site.

                  I looked at a BMW valve cover to make one out of that but the ribs are too short. I like the look of the vertical ribs so that is what I will try to replicate rather than destroy a nice old tuner part like Raul wants me to.

                  Cheers,

                  Jim

                            I actually was able to track down one of those knobs I was asking about earlier. Someone on the fb group hooked it up with a source.

                                Reminds me of one I had on my last VW... got it from a Wolfsburg edition, but half was stainless steel, the other half plastic. Wish I had of kept it for my E30. :(

                                What's the full part #?
