  1. What's new in this club
  2. 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.
  3. 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!

    Upholstery recommendations

    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
  7. 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
  13. 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.

    Absolutely

    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😁
  17. 102deg outside and putting up drywall on the ceiling. Yee haa! I'm still recovering, but I managed to get all the panels up. I'm still trimming and adjusting but I'll be throwing mud on it this week. The hardest part is over...
  18. Insulation in, drywall going back up, starting to look like something is getting done... BTW, you can't not notice the "mural" on the wall about the 49'ers and Broncos. 1990 Superbowl. I'd say this place needed a facelift!
  19. Something to show.... sort of. My time has been diverted to a backyard project at home, gotta keep the wife happy! I've been working on the garage before work and at lunch so progress is slow. Soon I'll be at it full speed again.... Getting some insulation up...

    Jeez that's a lot of nutz🤣
  21. One photo to share... I found where the squirrels were hiding their nuts when I took off a piece of drywall. I also picked up some second-hand insulation off of craigslist that should work good for the ceiling.
  22. More progress being made but nothing really to show with photos. I have all the power run for lights and outlets and found a guy on craigslist getting rid of a bunch of fiberglass insulation that will work perfectly for what I need. Bonus! If all goes well I should be putting drywall up within a week or so.
