  1. I have custom stacks. They look exactly like the TI versions but they fit Weber’s. I’m not sure who made them, but they are cast aluminum. I also have a set of original Tisa stacks, but a previous owner cut out a wedge on one of them to clear the break booster. if you’d like more photos message me and I’ll gather them.
  2. I installed my TI airbox last night. Then after stepping back and admiring it I realized I wanted to do some more fine tuning. So, off they go again. This was my first time rebuilding a pair of DCOE’s. They were rough when I got them but thought they were worth saving. A matched pair of 45DCOE 15/16’s. I took my time (started almost 2 years ago!) I replaced everything and probably spent more than I should have, but it’s been worth every penny. Learned a lot, and the 02 starts/idles/runs better than it ever did with the Lynx setup.
  3. I have Recaro Idealsitz in my 02. I just used a pair of stock e21 recaro brackets and bolted them to my 02 sliders.
  4. Trades? I’ve got embossed nose trim. I could add cash if that is not enough.
  5. My IE exhaust had a much lower rumble than my Ansa.
  6. 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
  7. 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.
  8. 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
  9. 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
  10. My guess is either small Alpina arches or custom. The 02 pictured has Alpina arches made by faq’r dapbmw
  11. 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
  12. I use cork toppers from old wine bottles to keep mine open. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  13. 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
  14. 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
  15. 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
