A 16 year olds first car.

Just brought home a 1973 2002Tii for my son who just turned 16. It currently runs and is completely rust free so we are just going to start by bolting on new suspension parts, rebuild brakes and chase down any electrical issues before body and paint.

The front sway bars, struts and springs are done thanks to my friend Mike. Still need to install new tierod ends and front sway bar.

Last weekend we replaced the rear sway bar, shocks and coils. Brakes are next.744B2F41-9951-45D3-85D8-DD022613486F.thumb.jpeg.78476edcf73bc56b0c6eef747be7fef4.jpegI

That's a sweet first car.  My first car, a 71' Datsun 510 was so bad when I brought it home, my father told me don't park that piece of ???? in front of the house.  Ah good times, good times.  You really are setting the bar high.

He is a pretty happy kid these days for sure, just gotta keep him focused on school for the next few weeks.

I dug through some paper work and discovered it was serviced in 1999 before being put into storage with less then 65,000 original miles. Here are some more photo’s.

Great starting point! I had a similar steering wheel - I think it's mounted upside down so that the turn signal cancel works. Unfortunately in this orientation it blocks the gauges. I cut away part of the turn signal cancel tab mounting ring & reoriented to that it worked with the right side turn signal stalk. It's pretty obvious how to do it once you get the steering wheel off.

Thanks to those of of you who checked out what we are doing, but I am going to abandon this blog and just do my own research using search’s. I was hoping that this fourm would have enough traffic so I could feel comfortable asking for guidance when needed but it doesn’t look like it’s going to happen.

 

Mark thanks for the tip I’ll remember that when when we get to the wiring.

 

Thanks Al

Lucky young fellow!  My Dad gifted me his '68 Bristol 1600 when I was a senior in high school.  Our most favorite car ever, and it set the hook for a lifetime of BMW (and 2002) ownership.

I didn't see any questions asked, so maybe that explains the light uptake.

This is a great forum where responses are almost instantaneous and very helpful.  Specific questions are probably best presented as an individual thread.

I see photos of both a carb and full Tii system... which is it?  If it's really a KF Tii, put the work into it and keep it!  It's great.

Have fun, both!
