E30 Recaro Seats (the real Recaro seats not your normal sport seats)

So you thought your E30 sport seats were Recaro’s? Think again the E21 sport seats were Recaro’s, not your E30’s. However real Recaro sport seats were offered as a rare option on E30’s.

Rust Bullet or POR-15 your car against rust!

The single most thing most thing I hate when it comes to cars even more then electrical gremlins and torn timing belts (on interference engines) is rust. Being from Ontario, we have cold snowy winters where salt is lathered liberally EVERYWHERE.  This will rust your car an exceptional amount in just one winter let alone 20+ if you...

Leak down test your engine to find its condition!

No it is not the same as a compression test. A compression test is a gauge that screws into the spark plug hole and reads how much pressure your engine can create and hold by cranking (usually by the starter).

Fuel & Brake Line Fabrication
