          Junkyard should have what you are looking for if you can't find anything on here or FB. Also try OfferUp. I have a set of 15" style 5's but they are 5 lug and have no tires

              I've got one e30 I see driving around my neighborhood, but yeah it's pretty dry out here.

              I have the TRM tune for 91 octane on my s50. Love every bit of it.
              I've got pink top injectors, I believe those are 21.5lb? I do have a 3.5" MAF, I believe from a 740 or 540.
              The car won't start with the MAF plugged in. Plugged the MAF in while the car is idling, and it dies on throttle input.
              I've got a chip from Turner, spent ~6 months trying to diagnose a no start issue, rewired the engine with a new harness, bought a new DME, only to find out the chip itself was the issue.
              The car starts and drives with the stock chip, but it's obvious it's not tuned right, the engine is getting more air than it thinks it is.

              I'm impatient, so I've been taking the car out for a couple drives.
              Forgot the oil return line on the CCV so it's pissing oil. Drives good though.

                Anyone near Inglewood have a small compressor I can borrow AND/ OR a Leak Down Tester? I am trying to sell this motor and if I have to buy the tester I will but really dont have a use for a small compressor so Im hoping to avoid also buying that. If you have both, let me know your terms to borrow it and what it will cost me lol

                Thanks

                  My dash finally cracked idk what to do
                  what are the options?
                  a brand new one is not likely to be found
                  1500-2k rewrap is what I’ve been finishing so far
                  swap a 700-1k used dash thats going to crack probably soon anyway isnt looking like the right thing to do
                  dash cap ehhh
                  let it be and dash mat it
                  Suggestions from you guys would be nice

                    Look, I ended up getting a dash cap, left it exposed to the sun on over the dash with books and magazines on to weigh it down, so it would form correctly.
                    I haven't officially put it back on yet, but I'm going to use a layer of fabric under it and add some velcro squares as per installation recomended.
                    One of my other e30 buddies did just that and it looks great on his 84'. I was so impressed that I went ahead and bought into it. Wish me luck and I'll report once it's on all the way.

                          I’ve seen what looks like a flocked dash cap didn’t look bad . I think I’m just going to go with the vacuum formed restoration . It’s a 5 month wait and 1900$ yes I know it’s a lot but I feel that’s the only way it will be right . I just finished the rest of my interior and the dash cracked .
