I'm going to add relays first ('72). I am a total IDIOT when it comes to electrical matters. So the quick guide to the headlight relay dealie is (yes, I saw the .jpg's on roadfly last week)

1) buy a 6pack of Moosehead beer

2) drink a beer

3) find the stock 02 wire from the fusebox to the low beams. cut it somewhere around where you are gonna fix the relay to the body.

4) drink a beer

5) take the (now) 2 newly made wire ends from above, put them on their appropriate spades on the relay

6) drink another beer

7) put a ground on the relay

8) spend 10 minutes looking for your wire stripper...you just put it down for a second...then drink another beer

9) take a thicker gauge wire, run from the appropriate post on the relay to the battery

10) go find some band-aids, because you just whacked your head on your hood. Then finish the beer you just opened.

11) repeat for high beams.

12) halfway through highbeams, realize you are out of beer, and send your shop lackey for another 6. And maybe some chips. Salt and Vinegar. Rave.

thats pretty much it, right?

    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
