About this blog

Hello 2002faq ,I recently purchased a 2002 on OfferUp , sight unseen , out of Idaho ; It competed in the 24 hours of Lemons races sometime 1993-2003 . It has a full cage all the way back to the trunk . Floorboards have no rust damage , Doorsills and Rocker Panels are straight .No windows except front windshield. No interior.  Only rust we have is on either side of quarter panel section of the trunk lid , and the trunk lid itself was rusted through , already have another one:  and the actual quarter panel on the driver's side is rusted through . other than that is minor surface rust on most things I am already replacing.  Pictures with my iphone with a bad camera lens.

Intro

So yes , purchased through offerup and shipped to where I live in San Diego for $1095 , this is it. It has seen better days but I have seen worse and I am already eager to start the transformation progress . Original color Agave Green , Has a 5 speed (possibly g245) , Complete m10 , only thing is it doesn't run , and today discovered does not have a gas tank . Given the amount of bodywork and other things the chances of this thing driving again soon could definitely wait ; so the motor and transmission will definitely be coming out once my m52 for my e30 is off of the stand and the car is ready for Bimmerfest '19. That way I will have a lot more room in the garage for this thing and all of the parts that will be dropped off here soon . I do want to keep the M10 and have a set of Italian weber 45DCOE carbs to mate with an OEM intake manifold plus cast velocity stacks with foam opening covers on them , I want a full rebuilt m10 with raised compression , nice flowing head with 292-304 schrick cams .       First things are first , Tail panel/under section plus quarter panels are going to be cut out and replaced. The person I am getting the body parts from thankfully had a great condition tail panel/under section and quarter panel all cut out together off of another 02 , Should be getting those dropped off this week along with good fenders from a 1602 , a nose piece looking better than mine that will be re-skinned with either a walloth or jaymic nose skin . It happens to have a good trim delete which I am fine with . Fix any dents , san to bare metal , undercoat and paint interior since it is already bare , with zero to little even surface rust , not even where the pedals are .. so we are looking good so far .   pictures
