Got the 81 528i home from the police impound lot. I think we are going to attempt a ressurection with this one. 5sp, no rust,77k hard miles. Clear coat on an old respray is toast, Maaco perhaps?
Was running as of June when the center bearing on the driveshaft failed. Hence why the front half of the shaft was in the back seat. No key, and now a big drill bit sized hole where the key goes to unlock the steering wheel.
Remaining parts of driveshaft now out and the mouse piss source evicted.
