  1. If you’re cutting up metal I’d buy these areas. Both sides of rear side window sheet metal. Rear firewall. Mines a ‘67 too.
  2. Those old things? 😃 Unfortunately the Borranis did not come with the sale, nor did the Talbots, Alpina headers and sway bars.
  3. Looks like W&N has a stainless exhaust for early cars. They’re not US based but I usually receive my parts from them in a week or less (I live in VA.) https://www.wallothnesch.com/en/stainless-steel-exhaust-system-compl-1502-2002tii-incl-manifold-without-mounting-kit-only-for-lhd-18-01-00.html
  4. Back in January 2019 I picked up a '67 1600-2. I've always preferred the early cars so despite some of the rust issues I picked it up. I've welded (flux) before, but I wanted to get better, so I told myself, "F*** it, let's buy a C25 bottle and get good at grinding." 😁 First order of business was to contact the BMW group archive. "The BMW 1602 VIN 1529238 was manufactured on June 19th, 1967 and delivered on June 29th, 1967 to the BMW importer Hoffman Motors Corp. in New York City. The original colour was Polaris metallic, paint code 060." The day I bro
  5. I am no-way a stickler for being factory correct. My '67 (Polaris) will be getting pig cheeks once I finish the rust repair. I've basically saved this thing from the junkyard, so I do not feel bad for what I'm about to do to it. 😄 I do try to keep everything relatively period correct and I have all the correct early trim for a '67; in addition, I will be adding a 1600ti steering wheel I recently brought back to life. I will be transferring all the parts from my '70 1602 over to my '67. The 1602 has a salvage title from an accident I was in 10 years ago. I loved that car too much to give it up, so I fixed it and kept driving it. She was my daily driver until I had a kid a few year ago. Anyhow, it will be nice to have a solid rust free, non-salvage titled '02. My current '70 1602 My '67 1600 project the first day I got it. 1600ti wheel I recently brought back to life.
  6. Thanks for sharing. I’ve seen very few pictures of this badge except in BMW factory photos of ‘66. I would love to own one, but my car is an early ‘67.
  7. I’d personally mig weld patches, but if that’s not an option I’d probably use Por15 and fiberglass to patch it up. Edit: Whoops sorry for the bad advice. I didn't even see the 2nd image. 😬 Nevermind me. haaha.
  8. I've always admired this car. I'd take a '66 over a Tii any day, and if I owned this car you'd have to pry the keys our of my cold dead hands. 😂
  9. Great article. For pitted rust I like to use a masonry drill bit and loosen up the rust hiding in the crevices.
  10. 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.
  11. 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.
  12. I have Recaro Idealsitz in my 02. I just used a pair of stock e21 recaro brackets and bolted them to my 02 sliders.
  13. Trades? I’ve got embossed nose trim. I could add cash if that is not enough.
  14. My IE exhaust had a much lower rumble than my Ansa.
  15. 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
