  1. Past hour
  2. Checked my valve clearances and pulled a grenaded guibo. will mount new one tomorrow. 144D44F5-A8DA-46BC-B3B8-0BFE0F292F49.mov
  3. I went and saw the BAT car in person. It was better than it presented. Interior had great dash and seats, savable original carpet. Body was very straight, great panel gaps, no obvious structural rust. No snorkel. Surface rust everywhere, a rust hole in the valence, maybe some front sunroof drain issues. If I were going to do a full restoration anyway, I’d rather start with that one than a wrecked one.

    Another is available
  5. I brought this up with the guy on the FAQ who is reproducing BMW mudflaps. Perhaps if enough of us expressed interest he could be persuaded.

  7. @markmac I think the car you’re talking about belongs to @TG2k2. It’s Bristol. Mine is “Polaris”. It did stop and have a cup of coffee at SCR as I have another car there, but I’m not attacking the body in the foreseeable future. Mechanical restoration then we’ll see. I bought mine from @ClassDavid out of Alberta. It was originally out of the Vancouver area, one owner for 40 or so years, sat for 20.
  8. interesting...sunroof wind deflector with hardware, how much the cost ship to Lavaltrie Quebec Canada j5t 2v8
  9. after trying everything suggested i'm still having the same issue. it might have gotten a little easier to start but it's still a long way from being right. here's the problem one more time hoping that someone has another idea before i fold and bring it to a shop- 1. the car starts cold and runs perfectly for hours. if i shut the car off and wait 5-10 minutes it'll start right up. if i leave the car for an hour and try to start it it starts but within 15 seconds it dies. when i try to restart it it's hard starting and it eventually starts then quickly dies. this repeats for 6-7 times then it finally starts and i can drive off. 2.the points, condenser, spark plugs, rotor, cap and coil are all new (it even happens with the old coil). i used a rebuild kit on the weber, set the floats, cleaned out the idle jets even though none of this was needed. there's gas in the filter, the pump works fine (and is basically new, probably has 10k on it). 3.i haven't messed with timing or valves since the car runs great otherwise. could this be timing or valves? the timing and valves were done 6k ago. 4. i've noticed there are several different condensers for the 2002. is it possible i'm not using one for a 1974? i'd appreciate any thoughts on what else i've missed or i haven't tried. thank you.
  10. Yesterday
  11. Bought a cheap set of Amazon basic mats for about $25. The rears fit perfectly. The front driver took a bit of trimming but seems to do the job. Had to cut a chunk out for our wonderful pedals. Not even close to Coco mat custom appearance, but looks passable and keeps the Oregon rain and mud off the carpet. If I begin to hate them, I am only out $25.
  12. Had a good day, saw two cars today running errands around Redondo Beach. First saw a tricked out blue square tail with box flares, and later in the afternoon saw a beautiful restored looking Touring in FFFerona, both within blocks of my home. I would have taken pics but using my phone while driving would be against the law.
  13. I did these. Take special care when installing the heater elements not to fold them over onto themselves or they will overheat and burnout. One heater was burned out when I bought the seats and it is not easy to find and repair the break. New gas springs, ~$40 each x 4 per seat.
  14. Just shim the pressure relief spring using this diagram or a washer ground to fit. Should get about 60 psi at 4000 rpm and at least 30 psi at idle. Be keenly aware at cold oil temperatures to keep the RPMs below 3000 RPMs as you will have over 100 psi. In effect, you drive by the oil pressure gauge. I did this also on my S14 and I have run 15W-50 or 10W-40 Mobil 1 without ill effect in 139K miles.
  15. As to the seat heaters, PM me later and I will dig out the installation instructions and copy of the ETM wiring diagram....You need to have sufficient amperage to keep your lumbar warm....... When you take them apart make sure to take pictures of the wiring routing as it will drive you crazy trying to get it right when it comes to re-assembly.
  16. Looking to buy a set of recaro seats in good structural condition. I prefer ones of need of reupholstering. I’m located in DFW area.
  17. Ok so how do I resolve this? I feel I owe you all for your help on this. How about I just take like $200 and donate it to a charity on behalf of the BMW 2002 Faq forum. There are tons of great charities. Is there one that the FAQ supports?
  18. Thanks so much folks for the response. I am in TO tending to my other house. Yes they are from a convertible, wow, great eye. So I think I have pearl beige, which is fine. I would like to keep the seat heaters, but I will have to look into the circuitry required. I will take some pictures and see what folks have to say about the color. I think the seats have been sprayed, so I will likely have to do the front and back seats. No biggie....... why you say?.... because they don't interface with my EFI system. Regards M
  19. That's a beautiful Sahara. Sent from my SM-G950U using Tapatalk
  20. Thanks both for the input. While motivated and hoping to learn in the process of this restoration, I am very much at the start of the journey... i didn’t upload all pics but the driver side rear shock tower is rusted through. sounds like a pass for me
