On Monday I pick up a 72 Verona(I think) Tii. Almost a year ago I

put my name and number on a Tii I saw in town asking if it was

for sale. It looked pretty worn but maybe salvageable. I heard

nothing. Lately i've been thinking about that very car and

checking the classifieds for 02s. Oddly enough, the owner calls

me today and wants to part with it. I saw it for all of a minute and

in dim light but as I recall it "maybe" had potential. The car now

does not run. The seller is having a baby and needs to get it out

of his Mom"s garage. We struck a deal over the phone as I was not

about to let it get away. Worse case scenario-I paid a fair price for

a bunch of parts. Best case scenario-I got a great deal on a

restorable Tii. I'm tingling with anticipation. Will post results

naturally.

thanks again for the picture of your under -shelf bolt point: I have one too! Asking around the garage- apparently, BMW did this to 1972 Bavarias too. Sometime in late 1971 ( my car build period- the old 1971 looks like a 1972 crap again. lol) BMW had the foresight to add this hard point expecting shoulder restraint in cars to come. Way ahead of the pack- rear shoulder restraint in 1971! I never noticed it before when i was in there fiddling with speakers, etc. That is a great find and I think a very neat indicator of how special these little cars really are. Anyway- thanks again for the pics- i like your restraint system. I added Schroth strap-end pullers and shoulder pads yesterday that I bought when I bought my helmet. They really make belt tightening easier and the pads feel good .Of course, I put in both sets for driver's side only on both cars... how selfish of me. Pax will have to wait for "discretionery purchase" kiddy to re-fund itself.///

...although Dwight Chew had mentioned it in past posts re: rear

shoulder belts. I thought he meant it was up above the window

latches on whatever that upright is called all the way back. Like a

dumbass I pull the fabric away to find, of course, nothing. I

decided to drill my own hole in the back deck and thru bolt it-not

very high tech but sufficient. i couldn't believe my eyes when I was

scoping it out from the trunk side. The bosses I needed-bonus!

I'm glad that info was of help. I too have the strap end puller

things-work like a charm. i should look into getting the pads. I

also know that schroth makes a retractor unit for harnesses. i'm

going to look into that as well for more comfort. happy 02ing:)

the catalogue i have from which i bought the schroth harness pads and puller tabs discusses the reel. It was developed for E36 cars and it has a "stock" mount method to hard points those cars have. A friend of mine in Northern Cali, who has an immaculate Turbo and Tii, custom fit an inertial reel into his tii years ago. I think he mounted it to the "C" pillar somehow- it works great for him- just like the E36 schroth reel- and knowing his expertise- I am certain it is a safe set-up. I will try to find out more about that rig. Maybe the E36 reel can be fit to a 2002. Let me know if that is possible. ///
