  1. I have a model that I built in Alias about ten years ago. These pix are quickie Bunkspeed (now SW Visualize) renderings. I have the rendering model used to make these rendos on my current laptop but the Alias file is on an external at the office. I'm happy to share the Alias CAD (.step, .iges, CATIA v5 etc) when I get my hands on it. I can write out a .obj or .fbx from Visualize but you won't be able to build anything super high fidelity from it. It's decent, but not a perfect representation. I also need to build bumpers and trim for it. I'll see how my day goes and knock out a few new renders this pm... Anyone interested can zap me a message and I'm happy to share -Brendan
  2. Those pics did not disappoint. Amazing how a crank can snap like that!

    1972 2002 DIY Refresh

    This is my car. It's a September, 1971 build 2002, registered as a 1972. I bought it in 2003 and drove it about 35K miles until we bought a house with a garage. Shortly after, I began to work on the car. I was determined to do everything myself, including bodywork and paint. I attempted to do rust repair in a few areas, but decided my welding ability was lacking and had the rockers and inner fenders repaired by a 2002 specialist. I stripped the car to bare metal, prepped, epoxy primed, seam sealed and endlessly sanded it. I painted it in October 2014. Currently (Dec 2015) I am wet sanding the clear coat and beginning to reassemble the car. I will continue to update this album for those interested. Thanks for looking!
  4. I installed birthday present to myself-a Momo Prototipo! The turbo wheel I have will get a refresh and I will begin my search for the correct horn button and hub shroud. Also installed a 5mm phenolic carb spacer, something I should have done a long time ago. Now it fires right up like it did with the original Solex. Lastly...affixed the paint code decal which has been sitting in my cabinet for ten years(!). I haven't driven her for a good while (8-9 mos maybe) due to work travel, soccer coaching and the carb issue, so getting back on the road at this strange time felt great, especially with the empty roads!
  5. Excellent!! I could pick it up on my way home from work in Irvine tomorrow or Wednesday if you like.
  6. I'm interested in the turn signal stalk if it's still available.
  7. This door is original to my car and was replaced during restoration because it has rust through on the bottom. It can be repaired or used as an inexpensive replacement. The door closed with a proper thunk and has no significant dents. I need this gone asap and really don't want to throw it away if I don't have to. Free. Please feel free to text me, Brendan @ 714-267-4491. Pickup only in or near Fullerton, CA. Thanks!

  9. What a great time, I had some interesting conversations on things both '02 and otherwise, what a great group of people to hang with! This was the first time I've displayed my car after a seven year restoration (still things to do) and I was so happy to get my car there. Without this group and website it would have been an insurmountable task.
  10. Hi Harry, Do you still have a set available? I would like to purchase one for my'72 if possible. Please let me know!! My email is [email protected] Best Regards, Brendan
  11. Excellent!! They indeed do, along with assy drawings that are zoom-able. I might go that way down the road....fortunately my belts and mechanisms are in great shape. Thank you for the link.
  12. Many thanks for those suggestions. It looks like a trip to the Pick a Part in in order for the weekend, usually seatbelt hardware is left behind after the vultures have come. As to which mounting points must pivot, I'm going to guess that the upper B-pillar mount and the lower, inertia reel mount should be able to pivot. I could see the receiver being a fixed mount-in fact I think it was. Cheers!
  13. I am having trouble here understanding the mounting hardware stack up for my front shoulder belts. Are there any simple solutions (I.e. available at the local industrial hdwe store) that effectively bypass the BMW OEM fasteners? The plastic insert bushings are incomplete from one side of my car and neither side of the seatbelt hardware matches the other. I checked on realoem.com to see what the assembly drawing looks like and some of the hardware is NLA and the rest is not very descriptive. I could wing it with what I removed from my car but I would like both front seat belts to have the same mounting for safety reasons. A search yields belt installs different from what I have or custom retrofits. Any help would be most appreciated!!
  14. I am interested in a set. Each of my lights has an issue-one inner reflector has a melted spot from a too-big bulb. The other side brake light segment is missing the inner plastic reflector. No way am I spending BMW OEM money on them.
