Whelp, despite about 10 years and 20,000 trouble-free miles, while out on a rally Saturday I finally had a fuel injection issue that caused Asterix to get his first tow home Turns out, it's a problem with the +12V supply to the fuel injectors. I did spend about half an hour on the side of the road trying to sort it out before throwing in the towel, and I did manage to narrow it down to fuel supply, but wasn't clever enough to pinpoint on the spot. I checked the usual suspects: fuel pump running, pulled a wire to check for spark, un-did/checked/re-did the grounds, checked the fuses, and checked that the relays were all switching properly, but when all that stuff turned out fine I gave up, put the wife and kids in an Uber (whole family was along!) and called AAA. Apparently I have a break or bad joint somewhere in the wire coming from the relay/fuse to the fuel injectors but I haven't exactly pinpointed it yet. But when jumpering from the battery straight over to the positive side of the injectors, now he fires right up! Disconnect that wire again, and immediately dies. Sure enough, +12V coming off of the fuse, 0V over at the injectors. Of course it took unwrapping the majority of the wiring harness to discover this, so I still have quite a bit of work cut out getting everything fixed properly and back together tidily, but at least I've basically found the cause now!
My pride has taken a bit of a hit as up until now despite several broken radiators, dead alternators, a fuel pump short, and several other mis-adventures, I'd always been able to make adequate field repairs to be able to get back home under my own power. Sadly not the case this time, but at least we all got home in short order and are now on the path to recovery. When I do find the exact issue in the wiring, I'll post what it is, and own up to it assuming it's something that would have been preventable (bad crimp, routing past a sharp edge, etc.), so stay tuned!
There is a BMW 1800 TISA for sale in the back of the BMW club Roundel this month. Somewhere in the Midwest, Ohio I think. Also, I recently found this digitized photograph a BMW 1800 TISA racing on the Pennsylvania Hillclimb association racing circuit. It belong to a guy named Charlie Markham who was a BMW dealer in New Jersey. He replaced it with a second hillclimb car, a 2002 which he bought just to race. I will include a few extra pictures, to make it more interesting.

I came across an opportunity to purchase a larger 3D printer at a significant discount. Went for it.
The size of the new printer allows me to attempt modeling the grille with its various surfaces, planes and splines.
45 hours and 58 minutes of printing.

05/04/2019 BayArea 02 Swap & Show, 4 May 2019, Marina at Brisbane, California. The address is:
500 Sierra Point Parkway--
along the Bay on the North side of Sierra Point. Preregister on Motorsportreg (see below). Preregistration is $25 while the on-site fee on 4 May will be $30. Graphic artist Kile Brekke has again added his art to our T-shirts and printed materials; we think you will be delighted with his design! Please preregister early to help us plan for the best number of each shirt size. We will have a named bag for each preregistrant so our closing date is slightly earlier than some years to help us organize the bags.
Note— Swap & Show visitors are welcome! There is no fee for entry if you do not show your car or swap parts. However, we encourage anyone with a BMW of our vintage to bring your car to display, no matter how mundane your daily driver (dirt, rust and all) or how beautiful your restoration. Swap & Show does not judge your car so there will be no points for extra dirt, missing dirt, matching luggage or concours glow. We smile at all BMW's and photographs or videos are welcome (but NO drones over cars)!
Preregistration is now open, until Tuesday, 30 April. Go to [Preregister for Swap & Show 2019].
