  1. My IE exhaust had a much lower rumble than my Ansa.
  2. Here’s a picture of a late 02 with painted grilles. I took this picture at The Vintage back when it was still in Winston/Salem. Jason
  3. This week I’ve started working on the ‘67 1600. The plan is to pig cheek this one like I did my ‘70 1600 and then paint it back to its original Polaris color. I might two tone it with a dark navy or a really deep purple. For the most part this car is pretty solid. No holes in the floor pan, strut towers, spare tire well, door bottoms or frame rails. The rear outer rockers are toast though. So I’m starting there. I’m waiting for some tools to arrive this weekend before I start welding. should be fun though. I’m new to mig welding. My plan is to stitch and plug weld the new panel. I’m not too worried about it looking perfect since it will be covered up by flares. Anyhow, this will be a slow going project, but it feels good to get it started.
  4. Girt, Yessir. I did all the bodywork myself. This 1600 was my first time taking on such a project. It’s not perfect but I’ve loved this car for 12 years and never get tired of looking/driving it. I recently bought a Hobart 140 mig welder and am going to attempt to resurrect a ‘67 1600 (Polaris.) Luckily it is pretty solid. Trunk, floorboards, shock towers have very little rust. I have to replace rockers though, but Im confident that I’m up to the task. Jason
  5. I don't have any definite answers to GirtAllerton original questions since I'm running wider wheels, but I love Kleeblatts so I thought I would chime in. Im currently running 13x7's up front and they clear my Volvo calipers no problem. Not sure if that translates to the narrower sizes. Awesome looking wheels none the less. I took two years of waiting to find my staggered set of 13x7 13x8 Kleeblatts. I had them shipped from Germany from a guy who usually sells to Opel enthusiasts. Original center caps are even harder to find. I ended up just taking some measurements of the center bore and buying a set of generic ones on eBay and then ordered Ronal center cap decals from https://3dcarstickers.com/ Regards, Jason
  6. My guess is either small Alpina arches or custom. The 02 pictured has Alpina arches made by faq’r dapbmw
  7. Here’s a recent picture of my 1600. 13x7 Ronal Kleeblatts up front. I think they have an offset of et3. Wrapped in CN36’s. I’m going to switch them out with Toyo 205/60’s in the near future. The rears are 13x8 Compomotive TH1381’s, et-11 with old Sumitomo 205/60’s. I’ll be replacing them with my 13x8 Ronals once I buy tires. Car has IE front coilovers, shortened and bent with fixed camber plates. The rears are IE stage one springs with 1dot pads. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  8. I use cork toppers from old wine bottles to keep mine open. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  9. Nice! I converted to a 318i alt a few years ago. One reason was for the 80amps, but mostly I wanted the adjusting bracket. I used to struggle adjusting the alt before the swap. Now it’s a breeze. I wish this option was around 5 years ago. Much cheaper upgrade. Happy to see it available now tho. GLWS! Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  10. Wasn’t today but I wanted to try my hand at sign painting. My friend owns a Tiki bar and I painted his logo on my airdam. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  11. Also....Download the Factory Service Repair Manual. I use it more often than the Haynes manual. Sometimes I use both. https://www.bmw2002faq.com/articles.html/technical-articles/history-and-reference/bmw-2002-service-repair-manual-r247/ Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  12. Welcome. It looks like most of your answers have been answered in some form. The FAQ is an awesome site and I’ve learned a ton over the years. Almost every question has been covered so it’s always best to search first. This is how I search... 1. Go to google. 2. Type, site:bmw2002faq.com followed by your question. I like doing it this way because I can preview the thread beforehand. See my image below for an example. Jason Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  13. xlittlejohnx Those wheels are sick! I’ve never seen them before, what are they? Love your early 02 also. Is that Tampico? Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  14. Are your exhaust hangers new? I’ve seen others add hose clamps to tighten them up a bit. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  15. It’s nice. Fit well when I had one. More durable than fiberglass. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
