    Re-purposed 2002 Parts

    Now you have to do an 02 cookie cutter 😋
  2. Try Alloy Wheel Repair Specialists, they have a place in Kirkland and may still have their mobile service as well. Came across one of their guys while cruising through Black Diamond a couple years back. There's also Sound wheel works in Bellevue. Have their business cards but have not used them yet. Maybe you can do a first article qualificatiion. 🙂

    Ray Brandes dow in Florida started a 700 page http://www.bmw700.ray-vin.com/ pretty sure he'll lend you a hand.

    salvage these shells-Rocking deal on 245!

    Unfortunately already gone to the scrapper already. Talked to him on Monday a couple of hours after he sent me the pics, but by then he had them already hauled away and was hoping to head south yesterday(Tuesday) and save them. Apparently to many flakes calling and not showing up.

    How do you keep the mice away?

    traps with peanut butter on the rails or a couple other areas under the hood that have enough room for the arm to swing.

    Rear ended

    You should be able to find plenty of comps, right now, there are three to start with on the BMW CCA to start, the bay should have some too, and as mentioned earlier NADA and Hagerty as well. You should be able to put in a good fight with them as we know that they'll try to low ball you big time. In any case you should be able to buy it back in the end; ballpark numbers are usually at 10% of value. As far as getting it back on the road, You'd be surprised how much can be pulled back with a good frame machine and a talented well experienced + reputable technician. Those quarter panel wrinkles can be massaged pretty well w/o much body work. Keep us posted. Best of luck!

    new floor jack design over in Australia

    Quickjack is still around and depending on your source, a 3500 lb capacity retails somewhere around $900 and $1300 for a 5k lb one. Indeed you can pick up, and seen several, a decent 2 post for around $1500. BendPak has a 10k lb 2 post lift that depending on your source lists for around $2800 and their 9K 4 post for around the same ( with free shipping). There are also similar reliable versions offered for around the same $$$. So yes, a no brainer if you have the height in your shop. Also, Champ offers a hydraulic side/end lift that retails for about $450; but it is all manual power as in an engine hoist.
  9. Found this pic a few days ago, so since we're on the subject I thought posting it as it seems she may be having some hot cabin issues
  10. I'd agree mostly with Paul; with the valve on the inlet you'd restrict the flow into the core and in a small sort of way preventing the heat sink effect of the heater core. Although minimal, we're talking hot coolant that would radiate/induct through the rest of the system onto the core in the cabin. Also perhaps placed in that location for maintenance purposes when replacing the core or ????. One of those interesting questions to be asked of the designers of the system along with other features that we wonder about.

    A Father's Day Tale. (Warning E9 Content)

    Indeed, pretty awesome. Good to know that the P.O. had a big heart and a knowledge of sentimental value and did not wring your wallet out. Hopefully Karma will equally play his way.

    How many colors is your 02?

    Nate too funny you posted this. In cleaning the 73 I got a little over a month ago I noticed that the rear portion of the right fender was a graft; in it i have four colors; but you got me on total colors. Maybe I'll find more when it gets a new fresh coat of paint in the future.

    How much labor for new clutch?

    Oooopppsss, sorry. Meant to say clutch of course; just a momentary lapse of reason and a short of the synapses. Yes the alignment tool and grease packet are also included.

    How much labor for new clutch?

    Got it from Rock Auto this time as the order I placed Autohaus AZ was cancelled the next day since they did not have stock available (theirs was actually a couple $$ less since shipping was free). SInce you're on the East coast, the Rock might be a quicker delivery option.
