There’s supposed to be two? The one that’s there is in good shape. 

Yeah, the tight hoop is symmetrical on each side. https://www.realoem.com/bmw/enUS/showparts?id=2583-USA-06-1972-114-BMW-2002tii&diagId=31_0435 They typically get yanked open, mangled or ripped off completely over the years.  See what's left of the one that used to be there.  If you can cut the rest of it off/clean it up, it'd be worth it to do it now before you powder coat.

Quick oil change and undercarriage inspection of Stella over a good friend Barney's.  No issues... 42 years young!

This is suck a lovely car,

The simplicity of the steels with the beauty rings just works so well.

My daughter is into design and funnily enough the steels are one of her favourite wheels on an 02, she thinks BMW got it right.... I agree!!

id say I have lift envy, but with the pictures i’ve seen of Barneys setup, it would have to be in the plural..... liftS 😜

What year is Stella?

 

Stella is a 76.  I was 10 years old when my Uncle bought her for my Aunt.  I was 10 years old and remember the 1st time I rode in her. 😊
