  2. Thanks Steve, if you ever do a book, I will be 1st to buy, you have opened my eyes many times as I was headed down a discover path in not right direction or hit a puzzle spot my vote BMW commission you for BMW's in America 1966 thru today . here is my work today, it was raining in LA, hard at times so took the BMW 1600-2 to my PT Westwood (UCLA) to Pacific Palisades doing 2nd phase of testing and a pass grade no leak in cabin, windshield wipers great!, radio ok, lights on, brake lights, turn indicators, battery up and charging so I do not get stopped even though legal for road car looks horrible with rear smashed, hope to have my rims factory silver this time around pics tail lights 8-22-19 & 11-27-19 thanks again Lucian
  3. Bmw 1600-2 manuf Nov 1967, it was Jan 1968 was 1st year for the US 1600-2 and 2002, the items not only stamped on the ID, the rear Lic Plate Lights vs the Euro on the bumper, What really wild about my car history is it came shipped direct to Los Angeles and trucked to Arizona, Only one dealer for all of AZ, so the A/C Frigking was installed by dealer in CA or AZ? (Thanks to Steve for history) My guess as the Lady driving the car in AZ with the A/C & was over heating and as done in those days a overflow was installed ... Idea being the overflow water went in a plastic container about the size of quart and was screwed into fender, 1 line from radiator, was thought to catch water then as cooled went back into radiator? I took it off I was in Bruno's Shop, a 30K orig from a family estate was there it was/is so perfect that is when I decided to enjoy the car, I could never be perfect like the 30K orig garaged 1600-2 Now that I have been looking at the body trying to fig the impact, a couple of items of interest, when I put on the trailer hitch I had looked for a factory hitch and had factory plans of hitch in which I followed .. (of course I could not find factory hitch) I think my spare tire and the hitch helped prevent a total collapse of rear end, maybe puncture the gas tank? In the pic's, we had to let air out of spare tire to get it out the trailer hitch frame work restricts the tire well from hitting the gas tank. I am going to look at that more close and also have the fellow that installed hitch, look it over ... L

  9. I had Fridge King or the lady in AZ had dealer install from new, I upgraded, traded in my original stuff to Ben at 2002 AD (if any one wants to have original, Ben has my original, I had 2 consoles, so he has complete package, I was going that route but LA Valley heat is tough enough) he has some good ac guys, they said as big as fan as possible and max size condenser, they mod the bracket for the compressor ...

  12. Surprise, car is in it's home parking spot, David at Bruno's called and said come get her, the fellow with wrong part must have sent correct part right a way, they installed part (strut assembly) and new front shocks, used hydraulic ram to make clearance for tire rubbing body, repaired wiring to rear lights, radiator repair, exhaust hanger, wheel alignment ... test drove highway.. ok ... pic is home tucked up by wall and tomorrow start in on collecting insurance $ .... L
  13. The fellow that sent the 2002 strut instead of the 1600-2 … 2002 strut I sent back says he has a 1600-2 but no show, I found another and he is close I can drive over to confirm, all the 2002 struct misguided guy has done so far is waste my time, should be test driving a week ago … L
