  1. Jay Mac, may be you know the trick, but for welding on thin metal part (after cleaning the rust) you can use a copper plate. I usually used an old tube that I hammered flat. you hold the plate behind the surface you have to weld or the hole you have to weld close, the heat is dispersed by the copper and the weld do not stick to it. Very usefull at some occasions.
  2. Hi guys! I've been there too:-)! I changed the old rail with a new one seen how rusted and in bad shape it was. Keep a good part of the old floor where the gas pedal is held by the 2 "metal balls". SO you'll be able to replace them exactly where they have to be
  3. Yep! Doors are quite something to adjust! Shims on mine too.
  4. Hi gentlemen, I'm busy restoring the heater box on my 1974 2002 Tii. Some plastic parts were broken and I glued them using HG 2for4 power glue... a quick and powerfull glue for ABS plastics. Works perfect for small parts. But I'm missing one part of the box. It's kind of a rack that is orienting the hot air flow to the foot well. There is a left and a right one. I'm missing the LEFT one (marked L). Anybody who would have one for sale or may be a 3D scan file for 3D printer? I join a picture of the the part and where it goes Thanks for your help.
  5. Nice progresses! Congratulations. I hope you're doing well and don't have any issues with the virus! On my side, I'm slowly rebuilding my rear axle and fit the new brake lines. I also "attacked" the heating box which is quite rusted. I found the plastic parts broken or split at some places. Have you any idea which glue would be successfull on those plastics? I'd tried cyanide but it doesn't work. Good luck with the confinement!
  6. HI D! I could be interested. Dismantling mine, I discovered 3 shims superposed and rusted. I should mesure their thickness. Ordering new seals and parts for it with Walloth nesch, I received only one shim... So I'm still not sure today on how to deal with that...
  7. Hey Martin I'll go to the car next Tuesday. I'll take some pics. What you call the rain tray is the firewall inside the engine compartment right?
  8. Excellent progresses, congratulations! My Tii is now at the body shop for painting :-) Should come back in January with the body completly done! After 4 years of rust "eating", I'll be ready for the big "mecano" of reinstalling all the equipments. Nice job you've done on the front chassis parts. Mine were in such a bad condition that I replace them by new part$$$$$! Merry Xmas! JP
  9. Guys you're just an inexhaustible and unvaluable source of information!!! Thanks a milion!
  10. Hi gentlemen, I searched the forum to find out how tinning is done on the junctions between the front panel and fenders and rear panel with rear quarter panels. I have a cd and books where they say something like "tinning the upper part of the lip". But when I check pictures from cars from that year, it seems the junction line between the panels is visible all the way from top to bottom... Any clues on this? Was tinning done may be only on the cars with the round rear lights... Thanks for your help. JP
  11. Wow! What a job! Congratulations. I'm busy on a 2002 Tii since 3 years now, and the body is gone to the bodyshop for preparation and painting what I cannot do myself. ...a day later... I took another hour to finish reading your thread...it's an encyclopedia on "how to" on a 2002! Fantastic work you've done there. I'll follow this thread closely and will probably have a few questions if you don't mind... JP
  12. Wow thanks 1936Spyder! We'll try to duplicate that. As Mike says: wheel wells and the spare tire well that's it. The rest of the under body would just not be protected while painting those parts. Interesting to see also that the fuel tank is not protected and seems to be satin black. Here below a few pics of my car during the process of adjusting the different parts and drilling the required holes in the new parts... and some of the "horrors" met during the process!
  13. Thank you alll for your quick answers! You solved my problem! I'll give those to the bodyshop and discuss how practically do it. I like the solution of tainted schutz... I'll see. Thanks guys
  14. Hi all, congratulations for your forum which is a gold mine for finding infos on 2002! I'm working since 3 years now on restoring a 2002 Tii model which was imported to France the day it was built in Germany! Now the body is gone to a bodyshop to check my work, adjust a few details and prepare for painting. And here is the question: The whole body (exterior and interior will be in Baikal metallic as the original, but how was the under body at the time? We will put a gravel protection painting in the wheel wells and under the car, but is that gravel protection has to be painted in Baikal too or does it stay black? Thanks for your help. JP
