Just finished up installing new shocks & struts on our '90 740 (plus the bits it takes to cram 215/70r16s onnit)!







edit; Loving the gambler edition 240 Ansel+!!

Looks like it's either an '84 or an '85. Clean car.

Nice car.

And I like the those R Sport style gauge faces very much and was thinking of getting similar from DaveB.

Had them long? How are they holding up?

Seen a few that have peeled away so haven't pulled the trigger yet.

Thanks! Those are a set of Dave's overlays.

I put them about two months ago so still under the durability test. I did install with an adhesive promoter per suggestion of Dave just to make sure.

Definitely my favorite part of the car at the moment.

I'm new to the show.
That's my '87 740 Turbo with Theis K1 Bodykit and Rial mesh - both installed when the car was factory fresh.

Same color theme as the famous Delorean
That Theis body kit brings back memories of Zender and Kamei in their heydays of the 80's.
I'd like more info on the wheel/tire specs.

It's not super glamorous, but I've put a lot of work into this thing over the past week to make this thing nice. I'm proud! The AC blows cool, the rear bumper is attached without sagging, I don't hear any more suspension clunks, and the electrical system is working as intended. It's amazing how much the whole car suffers when your EFI fuse starts to get a bit crusty.

My poi 960/850r bumper is finally done! It took me a while, but it would’ve been impossible without the amazing guide and pics the poi put on this forum, and the guy that sent me the r bumper all the way from Washington state! I love it. Thanks everybody.
