  2. Hey, I noticed some of you are following this forum so maybe you'll see this in time. I'm heading to Car and Coffee in Folsom tomorrow morning. Hoping to be there around 7am and will stay an hour or more. Try to make it...

    Get together?

    What do you guys think would be the best way for us locals to communicate with each other? We could post here but everyone would have to subscribe to the forum/thread and get email notifications, or we could use Instagram, email distribution, group texting.... What do you think? It would be nice to get together.

    Looks really nice. Good work!
  6. Okay, done with the engine compartment. Couple more things to do then up for sale..
  7. More progress... Wiring almost done. Tail lights added, chrome headlight rings going on... Before.. After... Tail lights added... Headlight rings...
  8. First thing I'd do is clean the area really good and then see if you can pinpoint the leak better, unless you're looking for someone else to do all of the work. The shops I used to recommend I don't anymore so I'm no help.
  9. Hello everyone, I am new to the forum and just became a new owner of an awesome BMW 2002. I am looking for a reasonable/reputable shop that could diagnose the issue and fix it the right way the first time. I am looking to have a couple things looked at as it has some oil leaks around the front of the engine in-between the head and the block. Who would be best for repairing this and maybe checking everything else on it? Again any advice would be great. Thanks in advance.
  10. 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...

    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.

  12. 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.
  13. This thing keeps eyeing the truck in the shop... impatiently waiting it's turn.

    I like that truck
  16. 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..
  17. 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.
  18. 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
  22. 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...
