Triangle

Hey viet,

Does your triangle fit in the tool kit with the plastic case it came with? I had to take it out to put it in the bmw tool kit.




Thanks for the Triangle!

Mola

PS - If NE1 is looking for the warning triangle for their pre-05/00 E39, you should check out LeatherZ. More than a couple folks bought from them and gave good feedback.

You can read up on the missing triangles on my DIY site, since it's not on BMWTips.com yet...jk.

well, was a nice case... I dont want to toss it but I guess I have no use for it.


Hey you have Tej's email? I have a Polishing questions for him.
I have rust on my calipers and thinking of painting it silver. but... I rather not paint it if I could just remove the rust.

I used a wire brush on it a few weeks ago and it looks almost polished but knowing after driving the car in rain it'll start rusting again.

I'm hoping if there is some metal polisher I could use ... that would withstand the heat of a brake caliper to protect it from future rust.

I aim to please.

Hey, could I twist your arm into morphing the three pics I have in my sig? I can e-mail you the pre-sized originals if you like.

Your montage looks swell.

sure, send the larger pics and a few more.. about 7 or 8 pics to fill up the blank spaces.

I'll make a few so you can pick.
