Sacramento 02'ers... paint garage

It's been awhile.  Here's some photos of progress.  I was going to clear coat the faux-patina but decided to just cut and polish instead.  The next owner might want to take the very solid and straight body and give it a good paint job so not clear coating it will make it easier.  I'd cut the front half of the truck when these were taken..

This thing keeps eyeing the truck in the shop... impatiently waiting it's turn.

I got side-tracked fixing my daughter's E90 wagon after an accident but I'm back working on the truck now.  Painted the running boards with enamel to make touch ups easier and now I'm cleaning up the engine compartment.

Hello to everyone in this group and a special congrats to Dang , not only for a job well done, but mainly for his contagious enthusiasm about Bmw's and working in cars in general.

Having a place like that to work in your projects is awesome. 

I also own some property in Rancho Cordova and have been thinking on making room for a work area. I have my eyes on a newer 30' x 50' metal shed in the back of the property. 

 

My present project is to bring my 73' 02' to 'performance' condition. I met with Eric from 'Fitted Garage' today to discuss a plan. They specialize on engine swaps and racing setups. My red 73' is in excellent 'stock' condition but lacks any decent power and is crying out for a suspension update. 

 

Sorry for not contacting you earlier. I'm sure you could have use an extra hand. But I run into your posting while getting information about my little project. 

 

Cheers to all....I great 2019.......and I hope to connect with you soon. I'm in Carmichael.

Another update.  Cleaning up the engine compartment.  I didn't want to go with the typical black firewall and wheel wells so I mixed gloss black with light gray to get an "industrial" looking color.  Turned out okay I think.  The air cleaner is just sitting on the carb for the photo and will get repainted, I don't like how it came out.  Just picked up some wiring and will tackle that next.

 

BTW, this is the first "selfie" I've ever taken.  Might be the last too...
