    You want my grey coupe? I will cut you a sweet deal on it since you already own my old wagon :)

      Please don't put fixed back seats in your wagon! Unless you have an S38 swapped in it of course.

        So I get to play with thread files tonight.

        Anyone ever used them? Got any tips for a first timer? Doing the threads on a spare axle..

              What do you mean? I plan to set it down on shop rags and a sturdy surface and get this dorked up thread straightened out.

                I meant what part are you filing. I use them all the time and don't really like them but I don't have much choice with the type of parts I deal with. Just take your time and file parallel with the threads, not straight back and forth, but in a curving way that follows the contour of the shaft and only in one direcrion, not back and forth. You are dealing with hardened steel so it will take a while.

                  There she is. Went a little too HAM getting the axle apart. Oh well. You live and your learn. Never tried to fix threads but you gotta learn sometime.

                    No way lol E34 seat rails are way to unique the only seat adapters run 300 bucks and all the Diy vader swaps are iffy. But Corey can tell you I sit up way to close to the wheel haha. Maybe lucky, I think I'm gonna have rough time getting this wagon sold was the glove box broken when you had it.

                      Stick it in a vice to hold it steady Paolo. That shouldn't be too hard to fix.

                        I'm sure it was. I don't remember details, but I remember the interior needing lots of things fixed

                                I usually start filing from the "good side" to use as a guide then work out. Get a 6 or 8" Brass drift or leave the nut just on the end next time. It saves on the filing. Ask me how I know this.
