  1. Here are photos of GAHH covers in my 73tii. I had done last year using new horsehair pads (I believe the bottom front pads are R and L unique even on a 73). Note that the GAHH covers don't come with pockets for rear of front seats. Have to re-use the old or buy additional material from GAHH and have your upholster create from scratch.
  2. Thanks for all the feedback and info. Seems like a few have had good luck with the Trico classics and the price is right ~$20/set.
  3. After seeing PaulWinterton's 73 Tii with stainless wipers, I decided to upgrade my Tii. Currently I have black Bosch wipers, which I measure at 16.5" long (rubber blade). Overall I think this is slightly too long, 15" would be a better fit. I can't find any of the stainless wipers in the right length at local marine shops. Online I can find two. AFI, which come in 16" or 14", ~$25/each https://www.fisheriessupply.com/afi-marine-deluxe-curved-blade-33015 and Trico Classic in 15", $10/each http://www.tricoproducts.com/Drivers/WiperProducts/MoreProducts/Classic Anyone have experience with either of these two brands? Are the Trico Classic any good? Anyone have the AFI and known the actual length? If the AFI run true to length, then 16" maybe ok, but if they run long like the Bosch, then I'm thinking the 14" would be better.
  4. I'm planning to attend. Just polished and waxed by 73 tii. Is there a plan to meet ahead of time and arrive as a group?
  5. I sold my 74 Tii on BaT last year. Overall positive experience with BaT. The first auction winner didn't follow thru with the purchase, so BaT ran an 2nd auction. I have heard from other sellers they didn't like BaT pushing them down on reserve price before accepting their vehicle. BaT doesn't want to list cars that won't sell due to high reserves. I was realistic on expected price, so wasn't an issue. Need to consider that buyer is paying 5% fee, will factor into their bidding price, effectively coming out of your wallet.
  6. The opening day of Exotics at Redmond Town Center is Saturday 4/22 - https://exoticsat.com/events/. Usually a broad mix of both classic and modern sports cars. They may let 2002s park as a group.
  7. I'm in need of a 74-76 rear bumper, without deep scratches. Corrosion / oxidation is ok. Just could enough to allow re-finishing. Thank Bill 74 tii Malaga
  8. Can you tell me what clear coat you applied over? I assume want to match the sheen of the dash so clear coat isn't noticable. Thanks
  9. Anyone know the length in inches of a Momo C155 or C157 hubs that fit our 2002s? I'm tying to determine the position of replacement steering wheel and if I should get one with dish or flat. I tried searching, but doesn't seem to be listed anywhere.
  10. Can I ask where you purchased the throttle linkage with heim-joint? I looked on Probimmer (Jack Fahuna) website and didn't see the part listed.
  11. I have 1974 tii with wideband A/F gauge and I get the following; ~12 at idle, ~13.5 at full throttle, and 15-16 at partial throttle. Overall runs well, idles high at 1,100 rpm (I have lighten flywheel, idle <1,000 seems rough). Dyno results are 105hp at wheels in 3rd gear (about right for stock assuming 15% drivetrain losses). At cold start the A/F is 10.5 to 11 until warmup regulator is done.
  12. If you look at my top photo (rear bumper), I found best to cut the end attached to body close to bottom of ridge. You want the bumper end and body end to fit together naturally - the high ridge from bumper end to fit in recess of the body end. Kinda hard to explain, but if you have the two pieces off the car, try to visualize how the ridges will overlap and fit together. Best to cut a little long at first and remove one section at a time. It's difficult to have more then one accordion section to overlap.
  13. I also recommend that you don't try to glue. Here are photos of my 2002 with the accordions cut, but not glued.
  14. Interesting 1973 2002 auction that closed today on Bring-a-Trailer at $49,000 - http://bringatrailer.com/listing/1973-bmw-2002-6/
