Looking around the site, and there's alot of information to learn! Hope the hospitality is as good as the write ups .
A little about my 02
It's a 1975 BMW 2002 VIN 2361432 square tail lights original color golf
here she is about 20 years ago, my dad's first car in the Americas.
Fast forward about 10 years she's getting prepped for paint
After the the shop did its work
and may not be noticeable in the pictures but fiberglass box style fenders were installed
As a kid I didn't have much memories of the 02 other than it being under a car cover, but fast forward 9 years, one bored day in a garage, and 10 megapixels later...
And I thought I didn't believe in love at first sight.
after a brief look around, several conversations with my dad we both agreed on it was time to finish the 20(ish) year old project.
Here's a pic of the 02' about a week ago:
Got the black headliner and the white headliners installed
Now unfortunately my dad has aged, although he has kept his memory well, there are bits of the car that are unknown mainly the motor.
Yellowed receipts could answer my questions, but before I go diving in a place equal to hell with organization, I'm hoping you guys can.
-the carburetors appear to be weber 40 DCOE but correct me if need be
-the car appears to be desmogged, and the valve cover breather is just a hole, is this a concern?
-MSD ignition, distributors, and coils! I'm clueless on this part, Has anyone here ran a m10 with msd? Or any experience with MSD?
-My dad mentioned he changed the cams to match the tii's 9:5:1 compression ratio, but not sure what cams they are, could they just be tii cams?
Thank you for your time, and hope to see all of you on the road one day!
