  1. What's new in this club
  2. Another update. Cleaning up the engine compartment. I didn't want to go with the typical black firewall and wheel wells so I mixed gloss black with light gray to get an "industrial" looking color. Turned out okay I think. The air cleaner is just sitting on the carb for the photo and will get repainted, I don't like how it came out. Just picked up some wiring and will tackle that next. BTW, this is the first "selfie" I've ever taken. Might be the last too...

    Sacramento 02'ers... paint garage

    Hello to everyone in this group and a special congrats to Dang , not only for a job well done, but mainly for his contagious enthusiasm about Bmw's and working in cars in general. Having a place like that to work in your projects is awesome. I also own some property in Rancho Cordova and have been thinking on making room for a work area. I have my eyes on a newer 30' x 50' metal shed in the back of the property. My present project is to bring my 73' 02' to 'performance' condition. I met with Eric from 'Fitted Garage' today to discuss a plan. They specialize on engine swaps and racing setups. My red 73' is in excellent 'stock' condition but lacks any decent power and is crying out for a suspension update. Sorry for not contacting you earlier. I'm sure you could have use an extra hand. But I run into your posting while getting information about my little project. Cheers to all....I great 2019.......and I hope to connect with you soon. I'm in Carmichael.

  4. I got side-tracked fixing my daughter's E90 wagon after an accident but I'm back working on the truck now. Painted the running boards with enamel to make touch ups easier and now I'm cleaning up the engine compartment.
  5. This thing keeps eyeing the truck in the shop... impatiently waiting it's turn.

    I like that truck
  8. It's been awhile. Here's some photos of progress. I was going to clear coat the faux-patina but decided to just cut and polish instead. The next owner might want to take the very solid and straight body and give it a good paint job so not clear coating it will make it easier. I'd cut the front half of the truck when these were taken..
  9. Creating some "patina". The paint is pretty bad on the truck so I decided to try making a patina. Learning as I'm going but I think it might turn out okay. The paint is so thin I'm able to use acetone and a scratch pad to take the paint off. Will rust the exposed metal and clear coat the entire truck.
  10. Rolled my first project into the garage. Non-BMW but I have to get this roadworthy and sold so I can get to my BMW projects...

    Upholstery recommendations

    A few friends have used Paco's in Roseville over the years for classic car stuff but I don't know how expensive that are.

    Thanks for the response - Looks like Yig's is permanently closed as of February this year. Bummer!

    at the recommendation of another local 02er, i used Yig's (8166 14th Ave.) off of Power Inn. discussion here: www.bmw2002faq.com/forums/topic/188331-upholsterer-sacramentonorth-bay-area/?tab=comments#comment-1150066
  14. Earlier this year I parted out a 320is and kept the important parts including a set of Recaros which are in serious need of a reupholster. Does anyone have a preferred upholstery shop in the area who might be able to address these seats? Slowly picking this car apart one project at a time...

    You definitely have put a lot of work in it. But when it's all done, it will be well worth it
  19. Man, this garage work is going so slowly it's killing me but I'm finally about one hour's worth of work about from painting the walls! I have to keep reminding myself that it's a 60 year old garage and it's just going to be a work space.
  20. During the week after 5:30 or on the weekends. Let me know...

    Turning out pretty good. Yeah it's pretty warm today, be sure to drink lots of water. I need to stop by there one of these days to get the full display of the paint booth😁
