the day my wife has been waiting for...the end of the purple 02 shell in our backyard....

there should be some racing 02 folks coming over my house this weekend to either take the whole shell somehow, or take the parts they need and cut up the rest to fit in my pickup truck for recycliing. will post when i get a firm day and time.

all that will be left will be a vin # panel from the fender and the title....

of course, i also added an e30 to my yard count, so she still won't be totally happy...;-)

Do we have a confirmed time of destruction yet, Admiral?

did you send me text msg last night from a texas cell phone?

probably start picking it apart later this morning. I have not heard from the 2002 racing crowd on when they want to stop by.

Fun day. I can now say I've removed the brake master cylinder, booster, pedal box and quarter windows from a 2002. Those tiny little screws behind the B-pillar weatherstripping are tough to remove.

Thanks for the learning experience (and the PB&J sandwich!).

Sorry Chris - I don't have any pictures but I bet someone here on the FAQ has done a great write-up on this. Keith Kreeger's tii website is where I would first look for great pics and procedures.

I recommend you purchasing a pedal box rebuild kit from BLUNT. It should have all the items you need. I bought one but haven't installed it yet.

On the Purple '74, I pulled the master cylinder and booster before removing the pedal box. The little clip holding the brake pedal to booster rod wasn't too bad, pushing the pin out of the clevis was sort of difficult along with loosening the lower outside nut holding the booster on.

The vertical brake booster linkage has a 17mm (I think) wrench size nut that secures it to the pedal. Make sure to mark where the nut was before removal. There is a rubber boot that the linkage goes thru in the pedal box. If you don't remove the large nut, it will prevent you from removing the rod. I my case, the nut was still on the rod so it pulled the boot out at the same time (undamaged!).

The clutch pedal requires a 17mm and 19mm wrench to remove the pivot bolt and nut.
