  1. Le Tran recently posted that PMB-6525 from Prismatic Powders was a very good match, if you prefer to powder-coat. https://www.prismaticpowders.com/shop/powder-coating-colors/PMB-6525/bmw-silver
  2. The diagram is not always accurate. Hope it works out for you!
  3. When 2002s were competitively racing in the 80s many drivers/crews opted for little to no rear anti-sway bar to keep the drive wheels on the road.
  4. You might be referring to E30 sport seats, which were not made by Recaro (but Lear, I believe). Those do sit high unless you shave the original 2002 seat mounting bases.
  5. http://www.littlegarage.com/ is in Huntington. There is a Dairy Queen nearby!
  6. I've seen ACT coupled with Ronal in wheel descriptions. They offered a mesh/style 5 wheel popular for the E24/28 in the 90s.
  7. There's been a more recent thread about this in the past few months as someone has reproduced the piece via 3D printer. Photos are included there.
  8. There's a block-off plate at the forum store: https://www.bmw2002faq.com/store/product/3-intake-block-off-plate/
  9. The factory shop manual is also here: https://www.bmw2002faq.com/forums/topic/108461-shop-manual-pdf-for-download/
  10. I got replacement covers for my '76 driver's seat in Marine blue from World Upholstery. Their covers had heated pleat "divots" shaped like rectangles vs. the original vinyl that had squares (or visa versa). That was upsetting - they said I was the only one who had ever mentioned this fact. I kept the covers as they wanted me to pay for return shipping as well as a restocking fee. I guess I got over the minute difference...
  11. So now it's up to you to not cheap out and have it all match. It'll be a more expensive endeavor, but you'll be happy with the results for a long time.
  12. Check with Sherman Martinez (also in CA) - he seems to have one of everything!
  13. Great story for the off-topic section: https://www.bmw2002faq.com/forums/forum/9-off-topic/
  14. Jaymic was offering a round reproduction - no VDO logo on it.
