I'm going to look at a used dash today and it may be in or out of

the car and I was wondering what tools to bring with me.

You may have to bring a few small size sockets and wrenches, but nothing esoteric.

tools to unfasten the heater controls, glove box and long nible fingers to undo the instrument cluster and speedo cable.

And I don't know who can get them. I got them from a friend that

had them with the 02 that he used to have as a back up set incase

of an accident. When he traded in the car twords a nice 308 the

guy selling the 308 beat him up so much on the price of his 02

that he didn't give him the spares. He then gave them to me!

Legond has it that they were molded off an original BMW race car

from Europe and might have been made by Turbo Glass back

then. I have heard that this is the only remaining set. If you look

long enough you will find a few pictures on the net, but many kits

are just not exactly the same. Here is a pic of my friends old 02

when we went to O fest in 95.

I'm color sanding now, which will probably take me a good week or so at this rate. Not sure when I'll buff it out, but I plan on putting the doors and trunk back on the car before buffing.

I haven't done it myself (with a windshield in), but my guess would be that the early style would be possible since there are snaps near the windshield. The later style would be a major headache.
