  5. Love that embossed front nose trim too! [emoji7] Looking for one for Derby! This car needs to go to a loving home! I wish I had more room!
  6. This is if Derby and Tesoro melted into one... [emoji6] Maybe I should have waited 4 years to have bought this car all in one instead of owning 2 now.... [emoji6] LOL
  7. While Derby's original wheels are getting stripped, bead blasted, primed, and refinished in the original formula paint color, I was able to order these special 1600 euro hubcaps from BMW. Why are they special? The US 1600 hubcaps are NLA. The only way to order them is that you have to own a euro 1600 and have to give BMW the VIN # and copy of your title to them. They will then mark or flag your VIN so you can't reorder them or for anyone else. Thank you to BLUNT for making this happen through BMW! I have ordered so many parts from this particular vendor and have always been highly pleased with their customer service! 😉
  8. Performance Technics has graciously picked Tesoro to be their front 2002 feature for their tshirts! This iconic picture taken by one of their very talented photographers is selling on their website. I am in no way accepting any monetary compensation. This is just a cool pic, done by a cool photo artist, being sold by a cool local BMW enthusiast shop! (Support our 02 legacy!) Thank you to Performance Technic for choosing this pic of Tesoro done by Courtney and thank you to Mike modeling the shirt with your ever so fabulous wide body 75! 😍 Get your own limited edition tshirt here.... https://www.performancetechnic.com/basestorefront/2002-photo-shirt
  9. Have no fear! I too have the euro rear license plate mounting frame, just waiting on Derby's personalized plates... Hopefully, they will be here before Brisbane. Will you be coming up from SOCAL to NORCAL?
  10. In preparation for Brisbane, Tesoro has a few things that I need to get ready and so does Derby! Since Derby hasn't been driven much for the past few years with the previous owner, I've been sorting things out to make the car more 'safer' for the road while keeping items PC for the car. Rear tail lenses have been switched out to amber lenses (they are new, but that is to make sure the lenses are more visible than the original ones). I still have the original lenses to hold onto for preservation. Also, Derby never came with seat belts, so I had installed the earliest of seat belts that I could find which are the Klippan's.... There would be NO WAY that I would punch holes in the rear panels for the seat belts as they are the originals, so I had them installed on the B pillar instead. I hear that its safer on the B pillar anyways.... Got the radiator flushed and the old radiator reconditioned with new core... noticed the paint was too glossy from the radiator guy... so I need to get that repainted in a matte finish... I actually don't want this car to look too re-restored.. I actually like the "pre-loved" look . It's all coming along nicely thanks to one of our Bay Area's most renowned and reputable legendary BMW mechanic Bill Arnold .
  11. The BMW classic row! 😍 Got to meet some new friends and hangout with other BMW enthusiasts! 😊 On a day like this, how can you not take your car out? 😉 Tesoro's new rear bumper seam cover is on! PROPER ! Thanks to up and coming car photographer @jannickvr for capturing Tesoro's spotless look at marin cars and coffee in Novato! Plus a few more pics from the Marin CC website... OPLusPl
  12. Just when you think a restoration is done.... it's not.... 😉 Tesoro's custom chrome rear bumper didn't look quite right to me.... and it's because the seam covers were not the right ones that went with this custom look. First pic shows the seam cover under the rear taillight has an 'indentation' of where the rubber trim line would go on. But because I had the rubber trim eliminated from these original 73 bumpers, I have to add on the euro early seam covers (with no rubber trim). (Third pic you can see my 2series in the reflection! ) And now... we look PROPER including the silver welting along the side of the seam covers! 😉 I think??.... 🤔
  13. It's a Derby detail day! Couldn't wait to wake up this morning to get Derby's original seats and carpet delicately steamed cleaned (this poor guy... I'm watching him like a hawk LOL) and I've allotted about 4 hrs of my day to detail the car myself which I will have it ready to be detailed again professionally before Brisbane.... and yes... my only insanity is owning 02s.... 😉 I asked the cleaner to not put the hot steam cleaning nozzle on the original fabric, so he added a thin towel over the nozzle to prevent it from burning the original fabric. (Just in case!) Original carpets were also steamed cleaned. Still smells like an 02 though! Such an intoxicating smell....
  14. If anyone wants to come out, we can meet at Marin Coffee Roasters in Ignacio at 466 Ignacio Blvd, Novato, CA 94949 at 7:30AM and then roll in all together so we can all get spots next to each other....
  15. We have sun in Novato this weekend! Hope to see some of you at CC on Sunday ! Anyone want to caravan and roll in together? https://www.facebook.com/events/189232374901954/
