This might be a noob question.

Ok, so I've had the "TURTL3" for about 2 years now, I feel pretty comfortable and knowledgeable about her, she's been pretty good to me, and I only have one question...
Do your windows go all the way down?

Mine go down until there's about a half inch sticking out of the door.
I know cabrio windows go all the way down, but I've never driven another E30 hardtop, and haven't had the forethought to look at another one yet.

P.S. I have an '86 325es.

You have to pull your door panels and elongate your bolt tabs for the window studs. It's simple to do, the snake shape mechanism is ingenious, similar to the drive system in your sun roof. You also may notice that your windows will "clunk" down about 1/2 inch when putting them down, this is caused by the regulator's rubber coupler wearing out. It's sorta shaped like a radioactive symbol. I'm working on making a mold to build polyurethane replacements.

BTW, Keep an eye out, I have designed an insanely simple turbo manifold that I will sell for dirt cheap (patent pending too) How about a simple turbo kit for less than 2000?
I also came across a roll of carbon fiber that I'm working a deal out with to get that I will use in conjunction with an old dash to make a mold for the construction of carbon fiber dash parts, interior parts, center console, etc. Maybe even a whole dash. I think a pure carbon fiber dash with some leather pad inlays would look sick. Then again too much carbon fiber could look tacky, I guess I'll find out when I build the prototype. I'll keep posting as things progress.

My god damn window goes down about a half an inch and then the rubber seal gets sucked behind it and it makes an exploding noise and wont move. Ive had it fixed once already and its right back at it. Its a touchy subject with me.
