  1. Sale pending on 5. Front and rear bumper overriders
  2. Caveat: Local LA pickup preferred. Please see shipping availability per item. Some things I can ship on weekends; some things I really don't want to ship. Lots of early round taillight BMW 2002 parts available in Sylmar, CA just north of Los Angeles. I'll be drip feeding them here over the next few months as I'm able to emotionally detach from the medium-large sized parts horde I've amassed to pay for the restoration of my 1969 2002. The following is available at this time: 1.10 slat kidney grille - $300 Rare and early 1600 and NK 10 slat kidney grille in very good condition. Not too short of excellent, this grille is about a 7/10 with some small nicks and dings up close, but otherwise it's lightly used. There are currently no nuts on the screw posts, but otherwise I'd wager it's at least as nice as the 10 slat grille on the Derby '67 1600 I saw at Legends this past weekend It's been on the shelf for a long time and my '67 1600 is gone, so no sense in keeping this to myself. Shipping available. 2. Front grill set - $250 Early roundie grill set in decent driver’s condition. Center grille has been repaired before but shows fine for a driver. The side grills are each missing one black slat and the rest of the slats are, like, hot glued on. However, only looks crude from the back side facing inward, they look fine when installed. Both sides retain their clear reflectors. Will fit 1966-1972. Shipping available. 3. Personal Manta4 steering wheel - $160 obo Very cool and sporty entry level into the Personal/Nardi steering wheel society. This is a Manta4 Personal 4 spoke, optimized grip 350mm wood steering wheel in used condition. It has wear from driving use on the top portion of the wood. There's a flatten portion of the hub lip, but you can't even tell when when installed. Shipping available. 4. Front and rear bumper with overriders and Amco rally bars - $200 Rare front and rear early chrome (they were I mean) Amco rally bar bumpers that were pulled off a 1970 BMW 2002. These bars are often have fog lights mounted on them. Parts of the chrome on these bumpers shine up really nicely, but other parts definitely do not. I think these would look great rechromed. Local pickup only. 5. Front and rear bumper overriders - $150 Chrome overriders, front and rear, in good driver's quality condition. Chrome shines up pretty nicely, black rubber is alright. Shipping available. 6. Mystery 2002 header and downpipe - $100 obo Unknown aftermarket header and downpipe. I don't know much about this, tbh. I stupidly bought it off a guy at SoCal Vintage for $160 who sold it as a Stahl a few years ago and never did anything with it. Pretty sure it's not a Stahl though and it has no markings. Local pickup only. 1. 2. 3. 4.

  5. Took apart a set of test wing windows for the 1969 Dolores restoration and will see how they come out cleaned up and polished. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  6. Warning: somewhat emo post. My 1969, Dolores, is on ice. I canceled the insurance and moved it to the garage this week as it’s about to be stripped for full restoration and a returned to its native Atlantik Blau. I left the new Verona ‘75, Rolf, at home in the driveway after a decent week of daily driving. Instead, I worked on the 1965 Imp today at the garage with my garagemate, Seth. We have been making early mornings at the garage a ritual last few weeks as I try to stop myself from drinking too much at night. We are trying to sort an issue of the engine wanting to die when in gear and under any sort of load. It idles cleanly and can rev like a 998cc Coventry Climax engine should when in neutral, but we have to ride the clutch when in gear or else it wants to die with any load applied. We now think is the electronic ignition thing... there’s a knowledgeable and friendly ‘North American Impers’ FB group we’ve been asking for help... apparently there’s only 50 imps in the US. But in the meantime, we replaced the Imp’s single barrel Solex carb with an almost new one in case the issue was a clogged jet not able to spray more fuel when under load. The carb worked after a little fuel priming and we could idle and rev fine in neutral, but the same issue persisted when we tried to put it in reverse. We left the garage at noon without a solution, as it was already hot in Sylmar and Seth had a marriage counseling appointment. He’s also had a rough couple of weeks. Funny how in our mid 30s, both in technology jobs, we find ourselves turning to the therapy of working with our hands on cars our fathers’ age, fighting the same demons our fathers and grandfathers warned us about. Simple, mostly analog, problems feel tangible and solvable. Thank God for weekends, air, fuel and spark and their healing properties. Here’s a few requested photos of the 1965 Sunbeam Imp LHD from Kentucky, Rose Marie, as she sits. And a couple of inspiration shots of where we will take her. Fig. 1 Me unloading the Imp. There was an entire 1966 parts car stuffed inside it minus a second engine. Fig. 2 Seth trying to figure out why we can’t drive Rose Mary up the uhaul trailer during a regular car rotation. Never figured out the problem. Fig. 3 Rose Mary, filled to the gills the day she arrived. Fig. 4 This. Fig. 5 Also this. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  7. BC, I'm curious to hear if you figured out why the 38/38 was flooding your M10? Was it the jetting? Thanks
  8. Pretty sure the bumper sets Blunttech sells come from 02Bumpers as well... Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  9. Ha, like minds! I stopped myself short of sending this ad to Blunt this morning. Figured he didn’t need my help, but he’s the only Wisconsin folks I know of... Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  10. I found a deal on a 1975 mostly original mellow runner while picking up parts in Venice for @Coastalcrush408. I felt like I couldn’t say no to it... so today I brought home a sibling for the 1969 2002, the 1984 E28 hot rod, and the 1965 Hillman Imp. My ownership might be temporary (something's gotta go), but for now I like it... Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
