  1. Interior dome light wanted

    Not mine. No association. http://www.ebay.com/itm/BMW-2002-interior-light-assembly-/122716864704?hash=item1c927ec0c0:g:mC8AAOSwCV5ZwuDm
  2. Electric conversion anyone?

    A few Horse Power / Torque curves to ponder. Stock engine. Scary. Still scary. Just right
  3. Electric conversion anyone?

    The motor in the InstaGram picture appears to be a Curtis Dual Motor Kit 72V-144V 165 HP & 188 ft-Lbs Torque Peak. It's scary to think what a 2002 will do with all that instant torque. Correction. The controllers are Curtis. The motor is HPEVS. Go here if you guys are curious: http://hpevs.com/hpevs-ac-electric-motors-power-graphs-ac-35x2.htm
  4. Electric conversion anyone?

    Wow. I was thinking about using the HPEVS AC-51 motor. But, the motor in the picture appears to be twice as long. "... up to 250 mile range..." is nice.
  5. Frigiking A/C blower motor upgrade?

    I was able to shoe horn in a 12x18 (Dimensions on the listing are reversed.) Had to trim parts of the mounting flanges to slide around the horn supports. http://www.ebay.com/itm/A-C-AC-Universal-Condenser-Kit-12-X-18-Parallel-High-Flow-O-ring-6-8-/172280140201?hash=item281cb251a9 Still don't have A/C. Different problem.
  6. Electric conversion anyone?

    ...the company is exploring whether there's a market for EV conversions that would cost about $400,000. https://arstechnica.com/cars/2017/09/jaguars-restored-this-old-e-type-with-an-electric-upgrade/
  7. Texas 02ers

    We are okay up here in Dallas. But, people are starting to panic over gasoline. Near where I work, gasoline stations are running out of gas, or, lines around the block waiting to fill up. It's crazy time.
  8. It also did not work for me. I had an extra flasher... Isolated the wire to the instrument panel; Hooked it up in parallel to the extra flasher. Voila, the main flasher drives the two external turn signal lights and makes the clicking sound, the extra flasher drives the green instrument panel indicator light. The down side is the "clicks" are not in sync with the flashing panel light. I can live with that.
  9. I am at work - so, no picture. I used a couple of zip ties, threaded them through the hole in the grille and the hole in the body, pulled the zip ties tight. Done.
  10. Electric conversion anyone?

    I hope these guys make it: http://bollingermotors.com/new_site/#intro-video
  11. Convert US turns into Euro turns?

    BMW made lenses have DOT markings to indicate the whole assemblies were tested and met DOT's requirements and regulations at the time. Try googling DOT requirements for turn signals.
  12. What did you do to your 2002 today !

    Tried and failed miserably applying the stencils to my Behr console. So, I made a couple of face plates instead. The doodad in the middle is to monitor the temperature until I know the A/C is working correctly.
  13. Convert US turns into Euro turns?

    Kudos to IE and other companies providing aftermarket and remanufactured parts. However, companies can be structured such that legal liabilities ends with the companies and not the individuals. My concern (I am not a lawyer) is personal liability with the individual hobbyist/hack working out of his garage.
  14. Early grille identification help

    Here you go.
  15. Convert US turns into Euro turns?

    I made a set for myself and put on my car. I stopped working on it worrying about potential product liability. For real professional looking re-pro, you may want to get hold of Ryan.
