    One thing that had always bothered me about my car (and 02's in general) is the wiring arrangement in the engine bay between the battery, starter, alternator and feeds to the fuse box and ignition switch.  Given the large amount of unfused wiring involved in this lot, it somehow still managed to be as ugly as sin and generally let the car down as being a bit of crappy engineering.      Things like this get my goat, multiple wires jammed into an inappropriate crimp terminal.

    Other Parts for the build.

    Some of the other parts I've collected for my "restoversion" of my 1968 1600-2.    Picked up these custom 15" MIM wheels from the buy/sell section of the forum as the owner was upgrading to BBS basketweaves.  I think the gunmetal centers and polished lips will work well with the Etna blue and provide a slightly more modern look as this is certainly not going to be a "period" correct restoration.  I got a chance to check them out on chargin's car in the BMW corral at the historics at La

    Project Complete!

    Finally the project is complete!  Here are some photos and description of the final product.     As you can see, I had the side markers and reflectors deleted.  I also got rid of the knee height rub strip.   I installed euro turn signals and new short stainless bumpers with the integrated euro plate lights.  I sourced earlier bumper brackets to pull them closer to the body.      I purchased new rain gutter trim, rocker trim, tail panel trim and badges.  The beltline trim is m
