The journey began on a dreary September 2019 weekend. After a few road trips and some negotiation I purchased a strong running 1974 2002tii. Having owned a handful of 60's era Detroit machines I was looking forward to the challenge of a vintage BMW.
The good - Prior owner had sorted out the mechanical well. The car started, ran well, dependable, solid floors & shock towers.
The bad - Rusty rockers, front fenders and quarter panels, and the general lack of BMW knowledge
After driving the car for a month and accumulating about 500 miles, it was time to get to work.
