Re: Z1 Tour August 13th 2016

Hi Jet et al,

Just to make certain of plans for the proposed Z1 tour. Is it a definite?
Would like to know, so that I can decide between a road trip and the concours!

Re: Plastic types for body panels

The first repair part in your mail relates to the top mounting of the REAR wing. The aluminium casting reinforces this top fixing point. The bolt and fixing are visible below hinged leather flap to allow hood frame to pass. The second repair item is for the locating fork on the front "bumper". One o...

Re: Steering Rack Compatability

Hi Sam,

The answer is yes. But E36 item would probably do the trick for less cash and more readily available.
As your other respondent says I think the E46 rack will also fit. My understanding is the only other parts that might need changing are the rack feed pipes.

Can't help with tech. on plastics, but I believe Michael Kabbert makes repair pieces for the forks on the front "bumper".
Worth looking at web site "Z1 Online High End Tuningparts by Kabbert"
Hope this may be of some help.

Good to hear you are making the tour. We signed up several weeks ago!

We will probably make at least a week of it. Thinking of taking a couple of days on the way down just gently cruising the byways.

As Keith said it will be good to get the Z1 on the continent again.
