  • Sun visors - reupholster or buy "new"?

    First time posting here!   I recently inherited my dad's 2002tii. While most of it's in great condition, I noticed that the foam on both sun visors is, for lack of a better word, disintegrating because of age. After looking online, I found a lot of the more visible parts supply stores online are pricing them at about $120-150 apiece. However, a local auto upholsterer quoted me for doing repairs at $100 each. The material on the outside and the mirrors on my existing visors are both in

    Ultracapacitors for starting

    Has anyone used a small bank of large capacitors for running the starter motor? Think I want to try this.  After many years of good service, my pair of PC680 Odyssey batteries are done.  I've decided against a lithium-based battery, but I also never liked having two of the Odyssey batteries in parallel all the time.  So this time around, I'd like to go to just 1x PC680, but supplement it with several tens of Farads of capacitors in order to help keep the cranking speed up, especially in colder w

  • Not much trim left

    This week I got the 2402 ready for paint and body work. The only trim piece left are the door handles. I am not looking forward to the sanding and filler work but it must be done.   I got under the car to investigate why a steering arm boot tore, it seems one of the Control arm bolts is too long and made contact. I removed the bolt and added some washers to back it off a few mm.  while under there I noticed one of the engine to trans bolts was extremely loose. Also 2 more are jus

    Pierre's Air Dam Installation

    I recently installed one of Pierre's Kamei repro air dams. I bought it a couple of years ago, and finally got my car on the road. Pierre suggested using rivnuts to install it, so I bought a tool on line. This was my first experience with rivnuts, and they worked very well. I ended up using 9 rivnuts in 6mm size. My 1974 2002 has cutouts for the big bumper brackets up front. It was suggested the air dam could cover those openings, but installing it that high made the ends come up short of the fen

    Purchased a Neue Klasse!

    On May 15th 2020 I purchased a 1969 BMW 1600-2 that was resurrected out of a Texas field and swapped with a GM LE5 2.4L ecotec Engine and Aisin AR5 5 speed manual transmission. The previous owner did all the swap work and really did an amazing job. I really fell in love with the Ireland engineering box flares on the car. I feel as though it is up to me to finish the car and sort out some odds and ends to make this car a truly great weekend cruiser/track day/autocross car. I cannot wait!
