    Arrow About Schmidt...

    Hi Stance|Works,

    My name is Dominic, i joint the forum because of my other (actual poject) car,
    but that's another story...
    I got this one for winter use, as my vert woun't see snow and salt anymore.

    I somehow blew the headgasket on the vert, now its stored.., untill
    i find motivation to work on it...


    Enough blah blah.., actually that's car:

    Its a 1994 Opel Omega A CarAVan i call Schmidt, don't know why...
    I'm the fourth owner, the first was an old couple, second one was the owner
    of a bodyshop, the third was in a motorcycle gang from north germany.
    And now i own it...

    It's doesn't has much in it from factory...

    - Electric windows (only front)
    - Electric mirrors
    - Glas sunroof
    - Foglights
    - Roof rails

    And beeing 20+ years old it has some faults...

    - Rust
    - Engine leaks
    - Transmision leaks
    - Fucked up differential
    - Almost completely broken radio
    - Stuff i'm forgetting

    I plan to keep the car, like forever, so i'm slowly repalceing and/or upgradeing stuff,
    Process will be slow because i'm lazy...

    Next things to come is, and you gonna kill me, a roofrack but not such a crappy selfmade
    wooden thingi, but it's from the fifties, my grandparents used to have a Beetle back then
    and that rack is layin' around in their basement about 40 years now, so i gonna mount
    it on the Omega, and i picked up some nice original rims for real cheap, maybe i paint

    So that's all for now.., tell me what you think.

    Greetings Domi

    Bringing this back form the grave to keep me motivated...


    Picked up some nice BMW M wheels today, the fornt gonna be a little weak with 17x7.5 ET20
    but the rear should look pretty sweet with 17x9 ET-12 .

    Ordering adapters now, maybe test fit them next week...
    I'll put some pics on here tomorrow...

    So, here they are...

    Bad grey rattle can paint, or at least 3 of them.., tires are trash...
    But the price was right and they weren't to far away so...

    Did some cleaning.
    Before


    During


    After
    +

    Not to bad for 10 min. of work...


    Gonna use 20mm H&R adapters all around, which makes the fronts 17x7,5 ET21 with
    205/40 and the rears 17x9 ET-12 with 225/45.

    Shouln't look to bad i think

    Depending on the fitment i get some shorter springs next month.

    And oh, this is a pic of the roof rack i mentioned in the first post...


    Had it on for a month, but it killed the poor mpg even more, it hangs on my
    garagewall now...

    P1010271_zps75a1afe3 by Dominic ., auf Flickr

    Unfortunately my torque wrench took a dump on me, new one is on the way.
    So i could only test the fronts.., but they sit flush with the fender..,
    let's hope the rear fits as good as the front...

    Tried these as well, for the lolz
    17" breyton

    Ich erkenne meine alten Felgen.
    Hätte jetzt echt nicht gedacht, dass du die auf den Opel schrauben willst.
    Kommt bestimmt geil! Viel Erfolg!

    Das kommt nächstes Jahr
    Die Breytons werde ich erstmal behalten, vllt iwan...

    Die Basis is wirklich ganz gut, mein Arbeitskollege hat
    seinen schon komplett geschweist, und sagte das
    der teilweiße schlechter war.

    Feelling this too, but the set i have is 8,5/10x18, the rear arches are radiust/lightly
    flared tough, but i don't think this gonna fit.
    Maybe if i redo the arches in the future...

    ----------------------------------------------

    So i got myself these today...

    I remember seeing one in a German tuner magazine like 15 years ago or something like that, and i fell for it right away. Loved the idea of a cool wagon.
