  5. Hello RGB'ers and distinguished guests: It's May and that can only mean one thing - everyone frantically tearing their cars apart and rebuilding them for the Vintage. While you're furiously swinging wrenches I've got a caravan route planned so you don't have to. The plan: We need to depart no later than Noon on Thursday 5/16. I plan on arriving at about 11 to grab a quick early lunch and gas up ahead of time. The exit will have a Cracker Barrel, Waffle House, & McDonalds for your dining pleasure.This will be best/only lunch stop so best to plan to arrive with plenty of time before noon. Upon arrival, there is a large parking lot between the McDonalds and Gas station, so lets plan to meet there. Again, I'd recommend planning to arrive by 11am, gas up upon arrival, then park in the big lot and meet up with everyone else for food etc. Where to Meet: We will meet near Lexington, KY, specifically exit 115 KY 922 (Newtown Pike) on I-64 / I-75. 115 is the first exit after 64&75 merge together, but for those of you with GPS you can plug in the McDonald's address to find us -> 1946 Stanton Way, Lexington, KY 40511. Take a left off the exit and you'll see the restaurants on the right side of the street. Also, If anyone is coming from 'points beyond' and leaving earlier in the week & would like to join the caravan, there are several good hotel options off this exit. The Route: >>>>>> https://goo.gl/maps/chXEmer456sNvywj6 <<<<<< We will take I-75 South to Corbin, then US-25E, then I-40 E to Asheville. It's the same route we took last year and was a really nice, easy, scenic drive. The one major change from previous years is that we are eliminating the Corbin stop. Hopefully pressing on and only stopping once will allow us to beat some of the Asheville rush hour traffic. What to do next: 1) Comment below if you're planning on caravaning with us, then shoot me a PM with what car you'll be driving (color/model/etc) and your best contact number. **I will compile a driver contact list and distribute to everyone when we meet in Lexington** 2) Get excited, tell your friends, finish building your car. 3) Pack walkie talkies if you have them - really useful during the caravan & on site on Saturday - there is no cell service. The journey to vintage is half the fun, and last year's caravan was an absolute blast. You do not want to miss out this year. Feel free to PM/Call/Smoke signal me with any questions or concerns.
  6. I completely understand where you're coming from with a day long repair turning into a weekend (or week). Keep up the good work!
  7. Vintage prep 2017: The first change was for @eastsidebimmer. Janky 8 slat to less janky 10 slat. Before: After: This one I'm really excited about... Before: KA-CHOW : The Vintage was an incredible event this year. 550 Vintage BMW's, (Mostly) beautiful weather, and a great group of people. Because I'm a goober I didn't take many photos, so if you have any of this car, please post them up in a comment to this thread. All that being said, here's a few shots: The Louisville Contingent at the first rally point to wait for the rest of the caravan. We had 14 cars in caravan this year. En Route: Parking lot @ the clarion: Getting ready to leave the clarion for hot springs: At Hot Springs, parked in the RGB tent city next to @thehackmechanic 's Louie Agave. The cars were very happy to see eachother again. 66 sporting it's custom fitted fender apron in preparation to have generator belt tightened. The car did exceptionally well on the trip. Had an intermittent ignition switch problem on the way home that grew into full failure on the way home. Luckily I've got a spare on the column i pulled from that parts 67. Now I've just got to find some time to pull and replace. @MoBrighta's whiz-bang 6v->12v step up box to run a 12v high output brake light bulb + R&R's tail light buckets came in the mail while I was gone too. I was hoping to have it installed this week, but this install is still pending.
  8. I've got two of my fender aprons in stock right now ready to ship. Price is $240 shipped including paypal fees. If you're passing thru Louisville you can save on shipping and I'll buy you a beer! These aprons are high quality and are the only 2002 fitted option available. They do an exceptional job of keeping your cars paint nice while working under the hood and fold nicely into a bag for travel or storage. Even your paint isn't the best (like my cars) it's worth the investment to keep preventable damage from occurring and creating rust and other problems in the future. I've sold more than 30 of these aprons and have heard nothing but positive feedback - I know you'll love yours too. Having these in stock is an unusual event - previously these have only been made to order and typically take 7-14 days to produce before shipping. If you're the instant gratification type, you're in luck! Shoot me a message if you're interested or have any questions.

  9. Jake,

     

    My wife and I are going to Asheville on the Sunday, so I will not be joining the caravan this year.  If I breakdown I will be calling you and expecting you to come to my rescue!  Sound like a plan?  See you there.

     

    Me missed you at '02 Fest.  You could have gotten caught up in the AR/MO floods like we did.

     

    Good luck driving to Asheville.

  10. Here's the post with the RGB Caravan Plan: https://www.bmw2002faq.com/forums/topic/196114-rgb-caravan-to-vintage-2017/ I hope y'all can join us! It'll be a lot of fun.

It's the same route we took last year and was a really nice, easy, scenic drive. We will stop twice en route - once after we hit Corbin, KY/US-25E, and again about two hours later. This splits the trip into three sub two hour Legs and gives us the benefit of having pre-defined rally points. Last year we had 20+ cars and needed to stop multiple times waiting for those in the back of the group who got stuck at intersections or behind pace cars because we didn't have a definite route or rally points. This year we'll just keep going, allowing anyone who gets stuck to re-join the group at one of the pre-defined points , or to hustle down the road at their own pace. What to do next: 1) Comment below if you're planning on caravaning with us, then shoot me a PM with what car you'll be driving (color/model/etc) and your best contact number. **I will compile a driver contact list and distribute to everyone when we meet in Lexington** 2) Get excited, tell your friends, finish building your car. 3) Pack walkie talkies if you have them - really useful during the caravan & on site on saturday - there is no cell service.
