Finally got around to fixing my nagging rust hole in the right rear quarter. I am applying for collector car plates, but would have failed the application with visible rust. Sooo, I went to a buddies place, and we did this.....

As you can see, it still needs a bit of filler, and a top coat, but it's soooo much better now. Also, there is still some welding to do on the right side of the trunk floor. That will get done in the coming weeks.

Here's a couple shots of the engine bay, since I rebuilt the head, installed a new timing chain, and did some other housework under there.

Not as bad as yours Mike. My quarter panel is still attached everywhere, and the gas tank lip is perfectly solid. Most of the "crust" in the pic is just dirt. We've got the outer edge of the floor still to do, a small hole in the spare tire well, another(smaller) hole on the drivers side quarter, and a couple of holes on the rockers. The nice part is, there is absolutely NOTHING structural that is rusted. These are all very simple patches, caused from crap being flung off the rear tires, and the sunroof drains going in to the rockers.

    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
