What Parts Would You Like Made For The 02?


heist

Recommended Posts

I'm curious to see what items the 02 community would like to see made or even remade. I now have the pedals and fluid reservoirs on www.tailoredsupply.com, but does anyone have suggestions? I'm open to new ideas or really anything. Maybe front and rear aluminum strut bars? Any input is appreciated!

Reason it is hard to find, is because it is hard (and expensive) to build.

Most of the parts that are not made, are either too expensive or too low volumes for production.

That being said, I am looking at roll centre spacers that add a bit of camber in front. They are very easy to make.

What about updates to some of the old classic upgrades. For example Volvo calipers won't be available for ever. Is there anything more modern that could be used?

Similar issues with rear disc brakes - - VW Golf mk ii?

Edit: it seems that Mini brakes may be an option. This is the kind of thing that I am talking about.

What about a more modern 5 (or 6!) speed conversion using cheap and readily available boxes.

Aluminum front and rear subframes please. And tubular rear trailing arms, ala E30 DTM style. All at reasonable cost. Let me know when they are ready...thanks!    :)

Reproduce the section of the door weather seals that bear against the trailing edge of the window glass.  Now you must replace the entire perimeter seal at $140+ when 99% of the time only that section is deteriorated (sun/ultra violet rot) and the remainder of the seal is in good condition. 

 

If you examine the seal carefully, you'll see that it's made from several different moldings, glued together.  This trailing seal is a separate piece and shouldn't be too difficult to reproduce using a poured liquid rubber/foam product...someone making these pieces could sell a boatload!

Sorry STEVENC22. When I said IMMEDIATELY, I meant IMMEDIATELY. Now they are headed to New York.

Maybe something else in the future.

I just thought of this the other day, and may sound silly.... How 'bout a long aluminum 'ram air' tube/box that connects from the front of the radiator support, going to a curved air-box that gets screwed over/onto the base of a Weber 32/36 or 38/38? Maybe add/extend a bar to attach to a strut-brace; to create an engine brace to keep the engine from jiggling. I understand that the motor wants to twist more laterally and not 'front to back'... Probably not to good for the carb bolts w/ that stress either..

 

Anyway, that's my crazy suggestion: Ram-air tube to a weber carb.

    BMW Neue Klasse - a birth of a Sports Sedan

    Unveiling of the Neue Klasse Unveiled in 1961, BMW 1500 sedan was a revolutionary concept at the outset of the '60s. No tail fins or chrome fountains. Instead, what you got was understated and elegant, in a modern sense, exciting to drive as nearly any sports car, and yet still comfortable for four.   The elegant little sedan was an instant sensation. In the 1500, BMW not only found the long-term solution to its dire business straits but, more importantly, created an entirely new

    History of the BMW 2002 and the 02 Series

    In 1966, BMW was practically unknown in the US unless you were a touring motorcycle enthusiast or had seen an Isetta given away on a quiz show.  BMW’s sales in the US that year were just 1253 cars.  Then BMW 1600-2 came to America’s shores, tripling US sales to 4564 the following year, boosted by favorable articles in the Buff Books. Car and Driver called it “the best $2500 sedan anywhere.”  Road & Track’s road test was equally enthusiastic.  Then, BMW took a cue from American manufacturers,

    The BMW 2002 Production Run

    BMW 02 series are like the original Volkswagen Beetles in one way (besides both being German classic cars)—throughout their long production, they all essentially look alike—at least to the uninitiated:  small, boxy, rear-wheel drive, two-door sedan.  Aficionados know better.   Not only were there three other body styles—none, unfortunately, exported to the US—but there were some significant visual and mechanical changes over their eleven-year production run.   I’ve extracted t
