  1. A couple I used for Shell's IG fuel rewards program w/BMWCCA: Sent from my LGMP260 using Tapatalk
  2. Just depends on how correct/dorky you wanna get. As you know, the 02 community is quite diverse and not comprised just of purists. On the assembly line the wheel wells were shot with the rest of the car but whatever paint wound up on the actual undercarriage was simply overspray. Some well known restorers will cover the entire underside in gravel/rust protector/undercoat (for good reason!) and then paint it semi-matte black to match the front and rear subframe assemblies. Others do that but then paint it body color w/the subframes, etc being semi-matte black as per factory original. Whatever floats your boat! Sent from my LGMP260 using Tapatalk
  3. Steam-cleaned original undercarriage of my non-tii '73 which better illustrates the overspray as there's more contrast between Malaga and the primer. Sahara has a similar color value to the primer so that wasn't so apparent in my above post. Sent from my LGMP260 using Tapatalk
  4. Original undercarriage of my '74 tii. Overspray from painting the body basically reaches the transmission tunnel but is thinner there. Some overspray from the black painted rocker panels. Seam sealer on floor panels applied afterward. Sent from my LGMP260 using Tapatalk
  5. Thanks-we're spoiled in CA w/rust-free cars! Steam cleaned and that was it. I should really get under it and hand scrub all the nooks and crannies though. Sent from my LGMP260 using Tapatalk
  6. That is true-the ctr resonator on my '73 was original before I replaced it. However, I think those were still painted that flat gray, correct? The aftermarket Ansa and Bosal pieces are a raw metal finish w/the exception of the Ansa sport resonators which are black. Sent from my LGMP260 using Tapatalk
  7. What you received is correct, produced by the OEM manufacturer Eberspächer. It looks like your old resonator is an Ansa or Bosal piece. Here's a couple shots of my recently purchased (Jan. 2019) Eberspächer resonator & rear muffler: Sent from my LGMP260 using Tapatalk
  8. What's the condition of the clock and what are you asking for it? Sent from my LGMP260 using Tapatalk
  9. Original Saddle interior of my '73 FYI: Sent from my LGMP260 using Tapatalk
  10. Saddle is correct. Sent from my LGMP260 using Tapatalk
  11. New Momo Prototipos are relatively cheap ($250-300) and would be period correct. I believe that they're only available in a 35cm though, which some find a bit small. Petri Sports are the gold standard but not cheap-expect to pay upwards of 1K for a clean 38cm. Nardi Classicos would look right at home as would 3 spoke wood-rimmed Personals, clean used examples of both being had for $500~ these days. Sent from my LGMP260 using Tapatalk
  12. Absolute rubbish...just a waste of time & money. None of it fits correctly so in the end you'd wind up purchasing & replacing it with BMW's product anyway. Do it once and do it right. I'm sure Blunttech and Maximillian Importing will provide you w/the best prices they can offer; they're top-notch folks w/whom we all do plenty of business with and who actively participate in the community as 02 enthusiasts/owners as well!

  13. WTF-how? That royally sucks. If I hear of anything in my neck of the woods I'll let you know. Sent from my LGMP260 using Tapatalk
  14. Weird-I'm 6'-5" w/a swimmer's proportions and have always appreciated the headroom that 02's provide, incl. my '74 tii w/sunroof. Sent from my LGMP260 using Tapatalk
  15. Super nice. Even though there was a color change it was comprehensive and in a desirable color so no worries there. Very clean and correct original interior (although not for Baikal), non snorkel tii nose, restored/refreshed undercarriage and trunk and the optional alloys. What more could one ask for? Wait, one owner car until 2018...DUDE. I'm thinking 50K easy. Sent from my LGMP260 using Tapatalk
