  1. What's new in this club
  2. Hi guys, This is my first ever post on the forum, however I've been using this forum for the last two years to work through a 2002 restoration. I have hit a road block, as my bonnet is full of bog, due to bad repairs and warping from previous sandblasting. The only way I can fix the bonnet is to fill it with bog again (which I don't want to do as it's still a bad bonnet). So here is the long shot,but is there anyone who has a solid rust free bonnet that is happy to ship to Auckland, New Zealand. I would make payment by PayPal (I am so conscious of scammers). Thanks, Martin Nobbs (Owner of a rust free 02, which was actually all rust)
  3. Will be great to meet you! I'm trying to make sure my car will be ready but i'm away for the 3 weeks before the event overseas . Regardless, i'll be there in an 02 of some sort! I coordinate an '02 Register' for Victoria mailing list (along with the 2002 Owners, Australia Facebook group). If you would like me to add you onto the mailing list - flick me your email (usually just email about 02 drives, parts for sale, group buys, that kind of thing) Love to see some pics of your progress! Tom
  4. Hi Tom, How are you? The car is currently in a workshop to get the floor panels replaced. Unfortunately i cant bring the 02 to the German Auto Show, However i will be attending the event.
  5. Hey Mint - how is the restoration coming along of your car? I've pulled together a few 02ers who will be going to the German Auto Show (August 25) so if you're about, let me know mate I recently found out that W&N do flat rate shipping so that might help with keeping the cost down on your parts (eg. the floors) - unfortunately GST is now under $1k i think ... bit annoying! Tom
  6. Thanks for the heads up Tom ,can't help with wheels or block, but will try to take some pics of parts available over the next couple of days and post. You guys may be able to help identify a couple I have.
  7. G'day there! Karl Anderson on the 2002 Owners Australia Facebook group will definitely have something in his stash. He would be within driving distance (outskirts of Brissy i think) Let me know if you have any BBS wheels or an S14 block sitting about Tom
  8. Hello all I have a couple of 2002 project cars and am chasing a couple of pieces of sheet metal from a body. In particular the piece of metal attached to firewall that comes up to the Bonnet seal. Secondly the piece from radiator support to nosecone. Does anyone know of any bodies in wrecking yards in Qld? The firewall piece is my main concern, 11the other nosecone piece I can probably fabricate a similar piece if I can not find one, but the firewall piece is well beyond my ability to fabricate. Also I have a ton of parts if anyone is in need of anything both standard parts or modification pieces, it would be great to hear, I see there has not been a lot of activity on this thread lately. I am on sunny coast in qld
  9. Hi Tom, I got the engine running again but the interior needs redo, i also found out that there are some rust at the driver’s footwell and i need to replace the whole wiring system. Mint
  10. That is a very sad sight! What kind of work are you looking at having done to the car to bring her back - full paint and mechanical go over? I can recommend separate places but not a one stop shop sadly... Tom
  11. HI Team, Recently purchased a flooded 2002tii, any recommend workshop for restoration in Melbourne, Vic? thanks, Mint
  12. sorry i didnt see this! ended up fixing the cracks and recoating my existing wheel as i figured most of the factory ones will be cracked anyway.
  13. Hi mate - are you after a factory roundie wheel or more of a Nardi or Momo wheel? PS: love to see your car - always good to see a new one from Oz!
  14. Simeon, thanks for the offer, got a set of nice original wheels from another member here. now looking for a steering wheel as mine is fairly cracked, does anyone have anyting suitable for the 1972 roundie?
  15. Vin: 1554019 Year: 1972 Model: 1602 Location: SA Comments: Recent purchase, currently mid-way through trying to replace the clutch. Should be an easy job but it's clearly got other ideas. Keen to talk to anyone who may be able to help. It's the wife's car, and once we've got this bloody clutch sorted, it'll be her weekender
  16. I've never had one repaired as tanks are still 'relatively' plentiful. I'd suggest only going down the repair path if you get desperate as you can usually pick up a good tank for under 100 bucks. When you have a good one, do a clean and reseal it (i think i used a POR15 product when I did mine 10+ years ago) and you shouldn't have to touch it again for a long time

  18. Great seeing another aussie 02 being put back on the road. There are quite a few in Adelaide... Jump on the Australian 2002 facebook group too if you haven't already!
  19. I have a TON of pictures in my 2002ti wannabe project blog album. Ask away and I'll try to help.
  20. It’s a RHD car. I’ve got a mix of pieces for the bottom half but the two piece dash is likely what I’ll use. I think the 69 loom for the heater is different to what is needed for 71 heater. Perhaps only one speed. So I’ve got to work through that also. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  21. I believe you can use a 2 piece dash in your car. Just have to get the correct heater controls and dash cluster. 3 piece dash has different heater lever control mounting. Oh wait - your car is European. Assume it has the chrome pieces on the bottom of the lower section?
  22. That’s great info. Thanks. Does the 2 piece dash from a 71 fit into a 69? I can therefore use the matching cluster? Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  23. Maybe I have that backwards.... Early cluster in later car = studs too short. Long day at work.
  24. The early cluster (silver dollar type like in a 69) has different length mounting studs on the back compared to the 71-73 black faced cluster. Make sure you test fit the one you want to use before committing. The 3-piece dash may not allow the black-faced gauge cluster to sit far enough back to secure the knurled nuts. My 73tii with black faced cluster and 2-piece dash Silver dollar type cluster from my May 69 2002 with 3 piece dash.
