  1. dashboard removal/installation

    Bingo! Thanks from the dood who is going to install a dash on a '76 soon, and was wondering whether to do it before or after windshield install ...
  2. Thoughts on current 195-50/15 tires?

    I have had the R1Rs. They go away super fast too!
  3. Thoughts on current 195-50/15 tires?

    Treadwear rating 20??? Don't look at 'em too hard. You'll lose some rubber. :-)
  4. Thoughts on current 195-50/15 tires?

    I'll be running the Bridgestone RE-71Rs until something better comes out in that size. I've been autocrossing on the Stones for two seasons. Fabulous tire for loads of grip.
  5. Cable conversion

    I've been struggling with how to fabricate a throttle cable/linkage for my conversion to EFI. I'll look into the TEP kit and see if it can be adapted.
  6. What did you do to your 2002 today !

    Fitted the front bumper. Overriders are just sitting in place until I get the proper length carriage bolts.
  7. Headliner Install Questions

    I'm going to wait for ambient temperatures to rise. Our shop is well ventilated. I'd have to build a tent around the car to make an use of a space heater.
  8. Headliner Install Questions

    Excellent advice all around, folks! I have indeed purchased hundreds of binder clips. I didn't consider the effect of temperature on the headliner material itself, though. Thanks, good thought.
  9. Howdy all: I am ready to attempt to install my headilner, per the tech article on FAQ. But the weather has turned cold and my shop space is unheated. It's my understanding that the adhesive needs to be applied in warmer temperatures. Correct me if I'm wrong, please. Anyway, I was moping about having to wait until spring. Then I began to wonder if there is any reason to wait. Could I hang, stretch, and clip the headliner into place and just leave it for a couple months? I would then glue it when the weather warms up. Also, can someone tell me the best adhesive to use? I read "contact adhesive" but is there a more specific recommendation? TIA, Cheers, Happy Holidays!
  10. Condor Speed Shop

    Condor has developed an excellent reputation for its poly/delrin mounts & bushings among the e30 racing community. They race-test everything the design, create and sell. That said, I have no knowledge of their parts line for 2002s.

    Yes, thanks, it ALL helps a noob like me. Cheers.
  13. e21 Alt. Wiring Question

    And ... Mission Accomplished! The only surprise was that a stock-length V-belt (875mm) was too long. I got a shorter belt (850 mm) and that worked fine.
  14. Hi all: The car is a 1976 2002. I purchased the project disassembled and am finding my way through the reconstruction process, but I've got a few loose ends ... Literally! Under the hood, there are three electrical connectors I need help identifying. The large, five-prong plug is near the fusebox on the driver side. The circular connector with two electrical leads (one disconnected) is from the harness on the firewall, almost directly behind the engine. The blue-sheathed cable is long enough to reach the coil on the passenger side of the engine bay. It is part of a little harness with oil pressure and distributor leads. But what would be the third lead in the sheath??? In addition, I do not appear to have a connector for my brake-fluid-level sensor, nor a lead for the coolant temperature sensor, so maybe I am missing some small subharness??? Thanks in advance. I never would've gotten as far as I've come without FAQ and the brain trust. Cheers.
