  2. @Geoff Raynak HA! I just lowered the price. Buy it already...
  3. i am contemplating making it up for this event ... a haul from Bend ... but would be great to meet some 'locals' ... i'll be in a non-BMW car ... but will enjoy the trip for sure oh ... and maybe by 20200202 (that is how i write the date ... and it happens to be an anagram!!!) ... maybe by then @Teelinger's Petri will be on closeout and I can afford it! cheers geoff
  4. I have it on the calendar, looking forward to it. In 32 days my '70 and I will celebrate our 45th anniversary together. If it's not snowing (and maybe even if it is) we are going for a drive.
  5. YES! We're on for Sunday for 02/02/20!!! Same location at the West Seattle boat ramp. Time TBD. I'm in the process of coordinating the effort. I'll be making another poster/flyer and will be distributing via the regular channels. Look forward to seeing y'all again soon. James PS. this year I'll have a sh*t load of great parts to sell.
  6. Man.... I am almost crazy enough to take this on.... Best of luck on the sale man! Sad to see it go!
  7. None that I know of. I'm good for a Sunday. Might be less turn out though?
  8. Given that Feb 2 is on a Sunday this year are there any plans for the annual get together?
  9. I hate to do it but I have to part ways with my 2002 project i've been tinkering with for the past 6 years or so. I've done my best to list everything with the car but as always i'm sure i'm missing some things both good and bad. I'm selling due to some life changes - my pup had surgery in October due to two herniated discs, trying to get married in the coming year, and another car came into the picture at the right price but the wrong time; so the 2002 has to go. I haven't posted the car up for sale on CL or FB, and really don't want to. It's important to me that another enthusiast get the car. Asking price is 2000.00. Check out the photos in the shared album and please reach out with any questions. The ad I put together is below: 1976 BMW 2002 – E30/2.7i Engine Swap - 2000.00 or best offer More photos here - https://photos.app.goo.gl/GEdMGtkjuUrLyhNJ9 *1976 BMW 2002 Automatic *Four Cylinder (M10) engine with Automatic Transmission has been swapped out in favor of a 2.7L BMW Inline Six Cylinder engine (325e bottom end, rebuild 885 Cylinder Head from a 1988 328 325iX). *Engine Management/Wiring Harness has been converted to run Motronic 1.3. *666Fabrication Turbo Manifold Adapter that needs a crack repaired – currently not installed and not needed. Just something I had in mind for the low compression 2.7i. *E30 Style Battery Junction/Jump Point has been mounted on firewall. *E30 C101 “Quick Disconnect” has been wired in and mounted on firewall. – Wiring needs to be tidied up. It is functional but leaves much to be desired in regards to tidiness and appearance. *E30 G260 5 Speed Transmission has been installed. This required the Transmission Tunnel to be cut out. I’ve left this unfinished and meant to finish it up but I no longer have the time, interest, or motivation to get it done. This is the biggest hurdle with this swap – someone with metal fabrication skills, body work skills, or deep pockets are what’s needed to get this part done. Clutch Slave and Master Cylinder have been replaced. Throttle Cable setup had to be reworked and fabricated – could be better but gets the job done. *E30 Driveshaft – installed using 2002underground Center Support Bearing Bracket. Factory 2002 Center Support Bearing Mounting Tabs need to be welded back in for full support (I had my own bracket made to prior to 2002underground making this solution). I have the factory tabs that need to be welded in. *Top-End Performance rear Strut Bar/Battery Holder has been installed with Hella Battery Disconnect. Battery was replaced two-three years ago and has been kept on a trickle charger. *Euro Turn Signals have been installed, as well as new sealed beam Headlights. I was in the process of getting all the exterior lighting working. Brand new Hazard Switch has been installed. *Brand new E30 318iS Fuel Pump has been installed. Fuel System has been redone with brass hardlines and E30 fuel filter. The lines and filter need to be secured better but are secure enough for now. *Miller Performance Center Console as well as a bunch of spare bits and pieces to cobble together a good set up. *Wink 5 Panel Mirror *Fuel Tank was removed, painted, rinsed/cleaned out/dried, and reinstalled. **The car does have some heavy rust in the spare tire well and appears to have been repaired some time in the past. Other areas seem to be mostly surface rust which I’ve tried my best to photo. The car runs and drives but needs to be towed to it’s new home. It has a clean title but is not currently registered or tabbed, it definitely needs some work before it’s road ready. It should have the Valves adjusted, The HVAC system has never been in use as long as I’ve had the car, and currently the Heater Core is not plumbed into the Cooling System. Brakes and Suspension need work. Exhaust is not the best as it was built to simply make sure the engine and running gear would work – ideally a new system from the exhaust back should be fabricated. Front Windshield is cracked at the left/lower corner. That being said, the car is rust free for the most part and has been in a garage for the last 6 years and loved as long as I’ve owned it. My asking price is 2000.00 which I’m fairly firm on. The car comes with a some spare parts. Interior is missing the back seat, and carpet but the rest of it is in fairly good shape for it’s age. I’m sure I’m missing a bunch – this has been a passion project of mine for the last 6 years. My priorities have changed and I know it deserves a better home at this point. It still has quite a bit of work ahead of it before it’s truly road ready and daily driveable but I believe the price reflects that. Please reach out via email, call, or text with any questions. - four two five 2 1 9 seven seven 7 1
  10. Sounds good. Why my wife went crazy when she saw it is that it looked like my blue 2002 from the back except no roof!
  11. He's a local guy. Had it a good number of years now. Good chance he will be at the 02/02/02 meet.
  12. Properly driven with the top down as any ragtop should be when not raining. It always baffles me to see convertible owners driving with the top up when liquid sunshine is not falling upon us.
  13. Spotted! Who owns this little cute convertible 1600 fjord going down I-5 near Boeing field in Seattle on 11/2/19. My wife loved it!!
  14. Thanks guys! I've ridden by Group 2, so I'm glad hear they are a good option. I'll go by and talk to them. I got to drive my car a bit this weekend and damn, it is super FUN!! Unfortunately the engine is now very obviously the weak link. . Now that it's back on the road, I'm looking forward to the next meet up though. Cheers!
  15. I have not used these guys, but I am looking at having Meister Werks European & Import in Renton do the 2002 for me. I'm going to send my truck down there first and see how it goes. They seem to be knowledgeable folk.
  16. Call Erik at Boyd’s motor Werks. He had my sub frames done recently. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  17. Anyone have a recommendation for powder coating in/around Portland? Looking to have my subframes and various suspension pieces done.
  18. Alignments are one of the few things Patrick doesn't do. He sends out to a shop up the hill from his. Suggest Truline, Group 2 or Prova for a full alignment of a suspension set up like yours.. James
  19. So I just got my car back on the road after I rebuilt the front and rear subframe with Ground Control springs/shocks, Wilwood brakes, sway bars etc. I have the adjustable front Camber/Caster plates, and I had a local vintage BMW shop install Ireland's adjustable rear camber/toe subframe mounts while I had the subframe out of the car. I took it to another shop to have the alignment done, and they said that the rear trailing arm mounts don't quite give them enough toe in adjustment because they weren't installed properly. It's not enough to ruin the tires, but I should figure it out at some point. Does anyone have any recommendations on a place in Seattle that check the rear alignment and confirm whether or not adjustable brackets are correct or not? I wasn't sure if Patrick does alignments too.
  20. Anyone planning on heading to the C n C in Lake Oswego tomorrow? If some 02's are planning on going... I'll go. Hope to see you out there. Carlos...
  21. Thanks Nathan!!! I know our toys are getting older and parts become scarce by the day; however some people out there are seriously vaping the hardcore stuff and want ridiculous prices that you might as well go buy from Max.
  22. Yup, drives me crazy... Trying to keep '02's on the road and save good parts. But one can only do so much. Happy '02ing!
  23. Thanks for the heads up. I know nothing establishes credibility with a community more than insulting the people who are trying buy your parts to keep their car running instead of parting it out like you're doing. 🙄
  24. Just wanted to give all you fine '02 folk a heads up so you don't waste your time as you've probably seen the posts on craigslist. The gentleman out of the Spanaway area selling '02 parts has been difficult to deal with, will not give prices, and laughs at you when you submit an offer at his request to "make an offer." Then proceeds to call you a Honda guy because you probably put a Vtec motor in your '02... Glad all of you local '02 folk have been finer than this gentleman! Hopefully I save some of you some time!
