  1. It's been a while... The ’02 was stored in my garage during the unpleasantly long winter, here’s a shot prior to putting the cover on. Winter/Spring A few semi-exciting off season acquisitions. New pair of 45DCOEs from Redline (allautomotive) 123Ingition Tune+ distributor, in on the group buy. New rain gutter trims A KMPH speedometer from Netherlands Also during the winter/spring I took care of a few tasks to help things progress. I re-re-upholstered my sun visors, I didn’t like my previous job with the same fabric as the headliner, so redid it in vinyl. - - With the same vinyl, I made a small cover to go below the handbrake, not because I thought it was necessary but because when I was installing the center console last year, a screw pulled a thread in the carpet L... which will now be hidden by the vinyl cover - - I removed the kmph speedometer from the cluster and verified and then repaired the odometer. - - I made a wire harness for the 123ignition, because harnesses are cool. Finally with the snow ending I rolled the 2002 into its “spot.” - - I installed the new gutter trims. I first smeared some grease on the roof’s metal gutter lip before popping the trim on, rust protection. - - I used and old quilt to make fender protectors while I work on the car because I’m a cheapo J. - - I installed the new 123ignition distributor - - Adjusted the valves (aka gave the car a VJ), I hadn’t done this last year, an oversight on my part. - - Started the car to confirm the new distributor functioned properly, then started on swapping out the settings from the (unmatched) Italian DCOEs, to the new Spanish DCOEs. - - Removed the Italian DCOEs and started to swap the settings to the new Spanish DCOEs. Installed new Spanish DCOEs - - I ordered a new throttle linkage because I wasn’t happy with what I had. Instead of re-installing what I had, I decided to wait a week for the new throttle cable. - - During that “unused week,” I took the cluster out to swap in the KMPH speedometer. I added an extra ground on the back of the cluster, like other have done, for good measure. - I had originally planned on installing the rocker trim but... o I sprayed the rocker with black plastidip, it’s a unpermanent way of getting the job done, plus I’ve always wanted to try this stuff. o After getting the job done and installing the rocker trim, I decided I preferred how the it looked without the trim. And unfortunately because I didn’t do a perfect masking job figuring the “line” would be hidden behind the trim, I had to redo it. o I removed the plastidip and reapplied it with a nice crisp-line. This stuff is cool. - - Over a week later, I received the new linkage and fabricated a throttle cable bracket which attaches to the transmission. I used some scrap aluminum for the job, it’s times like this I’m glad I keep garbage lying around (piece of aluminium). I also had to shave velocity stack #3 slightly, in order to clear the brake booster Eurokracy http://www.eurokracy.com/ A couple of guys I know (mainly Rick), throw a car show every year just north of Montreal, in Mirabel. It’s actually the biggest car show in Canada. This year my buddy, Kosta, who assisted with the restoration project (especially the dismantling, cutting and welding) was peer pressuring me to enter the show & shine. In order to enter you need to be “invited” as one of the Top 100 entries. I don’t feel my BMW is anything special, I mean it’s special to me because all the work I put in to it , plus everything I know, I learned because of it. After some more peer pressure, I filled out the entry form and a day later I received my invitation to the show J...Luckily I did not immediately purchase the entry ticket because this was prior to knowing there would be issues with my new Spanish DCOEs bumm, bumm, bumm, bummmmm... To Be Continued...

  9. thanks steve, I actually plan on recovering it... my car came without a rear bench. I found the lower portion from a local guy for free :)... now I need the top.
  10. I'm selling a Tii distributor with new rotor (used literally 8 miles). I'm including the Crane fireball XR700 for free because I thought it might have been having some issues after the rebuild. After installing the 123ignition, I'm starting to think I messed something up and it was fine... that plus it worked fine when I removed it (before the rebuild). I'm not retesting it... so throwing it in to the sale and hopefully it works well. $89usd + shipping view photos:
  11. I'm selling a bracket which mounts bellow the front carburetor (DCOE) for a throttle cable. It mounts using the existing 4 screws, it's made out of aluminum. it is similar to the metal bracket which is available in this kit: http://www.carburetion.com/Products/ProductDetails.aspx?part=99006.110 $11.99 + shipping
