I cannot tell if this this is ready to be painted, or was given the “stressed” look on purpose.

 

 

 

 

 

The insides (that is there) is not bad, but not what I want. Seats are leather/electric, which is nice, but makes the rear passenger area unacessible. Will sort that out in due time.

Welcome Brandon!

 

Looks like you have a nice spot to work on your new project. I think you'll find the community here is very helpful. Either way on that paint, it looks wanting for some attention :) Guess it depends on what your plan for the car are.

Thank you jimbojames!

 

Yes, I am lucky, and have a pretty big garage to make a mess of. As for the car, I know what I *WANT* to do, but my skills and pocketbook will likely hold me back a bit.

 

More than anything else, I want it to be a comfortable and reliable daily driver. I do have my work cut out for me though. I am missing: heater/defrost; rear seat; sun visors; rear-view mirrors; knobs to open front vent windows; windshield washer reservoir/pump motor; cabin dome light; and radiator over-flow tank.

 

That is all that I know I need, after about 2 weeks of ownership. I am sure that list will become much longer.

 

I need heat now, so I will likely prioritize that.

 

As for paint, I think that a lot of the prep work has been done, but probably a lot yet left to go. I can not read the original paint code, as that has been over-sprayed. It is a magnificent dark blue though. In time, I will save up for a nice paint job.

 

I am currently of the belief that I will never be able to make this a real "head turner" of a car, but I want to do all that to make it as functional as possible.

 

Again, thank you for the welcome.

 

Brandon

I have many of those parts. If you ever get over to the Seattle area you're welcome to come by and dig through my parts shelves!

As far as the "head turner," screw it man. Drive the thing! They're meant to be driven! Yes, I enjoy looking at my '02, but I REALLY enjoy driving it. 

Good luck!

I'm a bit late to the party. My name is Paul Huber and I'm on Orcas Island. I've been here for four years after 29 in San Francisco.

 

I've got two 2002s: a 1972 Baur Targa that I've owned twice, and a 1971 Pickup conversion that I bought from Esty.

 

BTW there are four other 2002s on the island, half of which are running.

 

Hoping to make it to the Seattle 02_02_21 gathering if things settle down, and meet many of the great folks in this group.

I love the picture at Olga! Both the place and the car are gorgeous! When I was growing up we had a summer house just south of Doe Bay for nearly 30 years and we used to walk to Olga when it was a store(one of its many lives I've seen) then hitch back. My sister crashed her Inka '72  on Mt. Constitution one night in the mid 1980's. We rolled it back over and drove it home. Good times.

 

Hope to see your cars there sometime when the virus is subdued. I still go visit friends there 5-6 times a year by car and boat. Thanks for sharing the pictures.
