Hey guys sry for the lack of communication. I've been hard at work under the hood and carpet :)


I bought this 100% original inka from a dude in philly. An old man(original owner) had a past away and the window gave the car the car club owner whom I got it from.


I drove her around the week before Christmas before I started working. The clutch was done(wouldn't had after 3k rpms) so I jacked her up and started a 5 speed conversion.


I had no previous car work experience and used this forum as my only resource. I have to say this is an amazing community. At times I got scared and thought I would break everything and have no ability to put anything back together.


Boy was I wrong. I pulled all the factory carpet(some was wet under!!!), all 40 lbs of that tar crap and I am about to tackle a few small rust spots(it sucks finding these, but I feel so much better after seeing everything and knowing my car is actually rust free).


After I poor-15(thanks for that autocorrect Siri, yes it is expensive) a couple spots I'm going to sound proof, put in an etsy carpet kit, pre wire for eurotrashs basic audio kit, battery under seat relocation and put the dash/heater/new AC back in. After that I have some seats, new shift knob and wheel waiting to go in!

Copied this from Terry's email that went out earlier this week;


 Spring Texas 02berfest. March 25, 26, and 27 we will once again gather in Austin to drive to Fredericksburg for food, drives, stories, and, of course, 2002s! There will be more details later, but be sure to set aside the time now----you won't want to miss this one!


A few of us ATX 02rs will be getting together for a cup of coffee next Saturday the 23rd.  Looks like just 4 of us as of right now.  Hopefully a few more will join us as I just started putting the word out.


Here's a link to last year's Spring event.  I was only able to do the partial drive out on Friday due to another commitment. Here's a link to the pictures I posted here on theFAQ  http://www.bmw2002faq.com/topic/164420-pics-from-friday-terry-saythers-spring-texas-02berfest/ 


Here is a link to the pics I posted from this past Falls event.  http://www.bmw2002faq.com/topic/173243-fall-02berfest-fredericksburg-tx/#entry1073281
