    Today I had the inspector out to have a look at Zouave, just to make sure heโ€™s rodent-free. He passed, but maybe with a little antenna damage.

    We (Ireland Engineering) are having the close ratio kits made. The left and drive should be done very soon and the right hand drive is in process (guessing 45-60 days). Do to development costs prices will be higher than the standard kits but still should be less than WN

    Paul, At the Icon exhibit, they had the car raised on a pedestal of sorts, with a light and a mirror underneath, so viewers could gawk at the obscenely-glossy underside. Iโ€™m guessing you would have appreciated that! Iโ€™ll bet someone here has a photo of the setup and that shiny bottom! Oh, wait, I did photograph the car! Here are my two photos of the Ceylon VIN 2763852 at the Icon exhibit. ๐Ÿ˜‰ I guess I got a bit distracted by that factory-correct Polaris in the foreground. Itโ€™s got filled seams, in all the right spots, if you know what I mean! ๐Ÿ˜‰ Wow, that is one sick ride... ๐Ÿ˜‹๐Ÿคฃ Oh, yeah, the Ceylon was fine, too. Best regards, Steve

    I saw this car and its restomod twin at the famous Colorado CCA Ofest in the year 2002--the year that 104 '02s showed up and the first 100 received the little white commemorative badge that you occasionally see at '02 events even today. If you look at the Werkshop plate in the pictures, it's #1--the first car the Werkshop did, IIRC. It was a $40,000+ restoration back in 2002 (when factory front fenders were $90 and most beltline trim bits were $20-30 each). But Steve is correct in that the restoration is to a much higher standard than the factory's production cars--it would be more like what the factory would have prepared to put on their stand at a major auto show. Just too pretty to drive (witness the miles since it was done 18 years ago). IMHO an '02 is meant to be driven, not trailered to events--and driven on back roads around curves; that's an '02's beauty. This one is so nice I'd be afraid to drive it. Wonder what the asking price is... mike

    Sadly there are likely more engines laying around than cars. This could be a good candidate for the 1600 on BAT out of Santa Rosa, CA. https://bringatrailer.com/listing/1970-bmw-1600-3/ but what do I know. I too have a 1600 engine laying around in a driving parts car. So much easier to move an engine around when it propels the car.

    Not recommended for anywhere in a car, especially in the floor between your legs ๐Ÿ˜„...Think Sydney tii means Dynamat. Sorry, just couldn't resist! And if you get items shipped in Styrofoam peanuts, bag 'em up and stuff tht under the back seats. Very effective sound insulation and the price is right... mike

    It doesn't matter, electrically. Switching ground leaves a hot wire exposed at the location (headlight, for example) whereas switching hot does not. Building codes require that the hot be switched, so that in the 'off' position, there is no potential in the box between hot and ground. Electronically, it's often easier and safer for the semiconductors to switch ground, which is why EE210 has you doing it that way. I usually switch hot, rather than lift ground, because I find it more intuitive. Also, less likely to short out hot to chassis. Or if it does, the fuse only blows when I turn on the accessory, which makes troubleshooting a lot quicker. t

    Roy, Here's how I would wire the driving lights. The high-beam tap is located in the wiring harness near the left headlight and battery (see attached picture). Caution...do not use this tap for direct power to your driving lights! Use it only as the trigger source for the relay. This will allow the driving lights to only come on if the high-beams are on. If fog lights are used, they should only come on on the low-beams. The dummy fog light button can easily be removed. Pull out the instrument pod to gain access. Or...leave it for future fog lights and use a round lighted switch (preferably blue) on the console for your driving light switch. If you don't use the cig lighter, consider replacing it with a round switch and add a "UP" after the LIGHTER decal....(driving lights = Lighter Up). Good luck with your project! John

    Nothing is an exact match so... OK, going to fab out of stainless or aluminum. Will use one of the 4 mounting bolt locations as the raised bump, the others will be flat heads.

    This is covered for the most part in the thread. Ireland is working with Ventas to develop a CR. However, looks like Ireland will have an exclusive so after development costs, markup etc. I would not be surprised to see a four figure price tag. Afterall, W&N sells the direct replacement for $700

    Direct replacement for stock box is all they offer. I saw something about Ireland maybe producing a quick-ratio kit, but no knowledge.

    Kind words, thanks. I've had thoughts of building a rental 2002 for track day events/schools, something folks with nice/restored 02's can drive a lot harder than they might their own car. The Hoonigan crowd has me wondering if drifting abilities ought be a feature (which would also be a good use for used-up race tires). The rugged/patina look will be an adventure. -KB

    If you want to get 'fancy,' you can also do it without any switch! I use a DPDT relay to run my driving lights in series (dim) as daytime running lights whenever the car is on, and then in parallel (full brightness) when I turn on the high beams. Details here, if you want to do something similar:

    While youโ€™re hunting for upgrades for your VW rear calipers look at the MK4 calipers. If I recall correctly theyโ€™re alloy castings not steel (Lighter), perhaps less prone to seizing, and I believe they will mount up to the earlier carriers. I think the only real difference was the use of a bango connection for the brake line instead of an inverted flare fitting. I could be misremembering all of this, but it might be worth looking at

    The seller here is clearly out of step with current CL ads for 02s. Let me rewrite his ad for him so it's more in keeping--sadly--with ones I've been coming across, especially here in the Midwest: "BMW 2002. Has some patina and needs a little TLC, but amazing opportunity to get a vintage classic at an affordable price. Rare Primerrot exterior with Zerrissense Sitze interior. These cars are appreciating rapidly! Get this one while you can, $7,000." There, fixed it. ๐Ÿ™„๐Ÿ™ƒ

    A great example to go by when I re-Celon -ify my car, even if a there is little too much bling for my taste. Would have a hard time with the glossy air cleaner, but can live with everything else.... ok, who am I kidding.... would be a dream to have this in the garage!! Vince

    If you are ordering rebuilt units from a place like RockAuto, just take note that the different brands may or may not come with mounting brackets and the E-Brake cable bracket that you mention. Just confirm the description and pics are what you need. Another note with these rear calipers. They have the piston that twists out to adjust as the pads wear so the pads are always close to the rotor giving you a firm pedal. If there is a lot of space between the pads and the rotor the pedal needs to displace more fluid to make contact and it may take a while for them to adjust. With Audi's and VW's that I have had in the past I have turned the piston counter clockwise during install to adjust them if needed (it may not be). Nothing worse than getting the car together, expecting an improvement, and then the pedal goes to the floor during your first drive.

    I had a rear caliper go bad last month, My 02 has the conversion. The caliper has the correct fitting for the e brake, ended up doing both mine were looking pretty tired. https://www.autozone.com/brakes-and-traction-control/brake-caliper-rear/duralast-non-bracktd-brake-caliper-19-b1715/565802_1022008_5913

    You should also be able to use the rear calipers from a MK3 VW... about 20 years ago I had an 88 GTI (MK 2) and one of the upgrades that people would perform was updating to a MK3 rear caliper, and they were a direct bolt on. I think they were less prone to issues with the automatic adjuster, and IIRC the consensus at the time was to use a 95-99 rear caliper as they were better. If you search on Rockauto you can get remanufactured rear calipers w/bracket for a 95' jetta for $49 each without a core....or if you want to stick with the MK2 stuff they are $32each with a $14 core. That is pretty short money for some rebuilt calipers and probably the way I would go before spending money on used calipers. Actually if you go with the adapter kit from Classic Daily, they suggest using MK3 calipers. https://classicdaily.net/product/2002-rear-disc-brake-brackets/ Hope that helps.

    My car is back together thanks to the good folks at Korman selling me a single rocker and cometic gasket. Ready to race the ELVF at Road America this weekend. Korman shared the failure with Lester Owen and I guess is was a first. I have a set of KM rockers showing up at my door today. Not sure what I'll do with them but they are cheap and having something as an emergency backup in my spares box appeals to me. The Cat Cams rockers are $120/each plus shipping. $1,040.30 USD delivered to the U.S. In talking them, they seem interesting. I think I will use them on a 121 head building for a friend this winter. To purchase simply email them. Nice people. I've had this car for 4 years now and but still new to learning the little details of how to make an m10 race motor work. But I love the M10 for it's simplicity, it ain't rocket science! ho can't love an engine where the entirety of the nuts and bolts to put it together can fit in your cargo shorts! I also love the engineering brilliance of Weber DCOE carbs in particular. As well as the mechanicals, I've fallen in love with "B Sedan" racing with this 2002. I wish there were more 2002 racing folks in the Midwest. They are scarce. In 15 years I still hope to be doing this with a greater knowledge base to pass on.

    Needed a mental break so I welded up some brackets and did a mock up install. This is at its lowest position, I'll lift it up a bit and tighten the nuts. I want to get the fitment so that I can utilize (and slightly cover) the existing side fender holes. Technically it matches the rear '73 bumper now. Not sure I'm sold on it yet. I'll stare at it for a while and see if it grows on me before painting it wrinkle black to match the rear.

    First pass of some colour correction, and the first time I have used a mechanical polisher. The dull and sun damaged boot (trunk!) came up very nicely. Polish and wax to follow....and some decent pictures in a picturesque location of course!
