Yep, sunroof model.Had the exact same problem on mine on that inner wing
Mine was way worse than that. Ended up extending the sunroof tubes right down to the bottom of wing. (if yours has a sunroof that is)
Yep, sunroof model.
Sounds like a good idea, need to make sure they're well cleaned out too. Whilst it has been garaged pretty much continuously since it was taken off the road in the 90s the drains could well be full of crap, guessing there are rear sunroof tubes too?
Seems a shame to put it in the car and not have it at the desk to oogle all day, it's work of art!Ordered on Sunday, landed from Germany this morning. Impressive service. Sweets, branded post it notes, stickers and Wurth allen key tool included

Isn't it! Have to say as much as I like the Coolerworx one in my E34, the CAE just seems to be a level above it.Seems a shame to put it in the car and not have it at the desk to oogle all day, it's work of art!
Thanks! The electrics is the side of it that concerns me a bit, I know it has all been done before on these, but I am strongly considering running a standalone in any case just for future proofing to some extent.Great project!
have you heard of these guys? When I was interested in doing something similar to a mk1 they had conversion kits available. Might be a good place to look for getting the loom sorted when matching the management to the old clocks if you haven’t considered it.
