    Thanks! I guess I hadn't dug deep enough in the box yet.

    Oh man, it looks so clean under there!! Congrats. I'm about to install the same GC kit. Did you use both upper and lower spring pads? I have new ones for both, but I'm curious how that threaded collar is supposed to sit against the body.
  3. Cool! My car still has the subframes removed, but I'll try to be there. BTW, @Teelinger I saw you driving orange kermit down Stone this morning. . I also saw a silver 02, with red/blue stripes on the front air damn. I hadn't seen that car around this area before.

    This particular 2002 has found its forever home, and is currently undergoing front and rear subframe restoration including a set of Ground Control coilovers, Wilwood big brakes, Ireland Sway bars and bushings and a limited slip diff. The engine and transmission are tired and from another local '02 fan, and are eventually destined for a rebuild and 5 speed swap. Dear Mr Wray,Thank you for your email.The BMW 2002 US VIN 2370672 was manufactured on September 17th, 1975 and delivered on September 30th, 1975 to the importer BMW of North America. The original colour was Golf, paint code 070.We hope this information is helpful for you.Yours sincerely,Julia Oberndörfer-- BMW GroupJulia OberndörferBMW Group ClassicArchiv, Sammlung, Classic Brand Management (AK-50)Historischer InformationsdienstMoosacher Straße 6680809 München
  5. Perfect, let me do a quick check on my flange bolts. I'll get back to you by EOD today.
  6. I might be interested in the 3.91 diff. I have a 76', but my rear diff cover doesn't match those and i don't know what size my output flange bolts are at the moment. Would I just use my current rear diff cover?
  7. I'm in the process of pulling front and rear subframes, but I think this is a great idea.
  8. Yeah! I missed out on a ride in a turbo last year. PS, your old header and down-pipe have been great.
  9. I'll be there! Unfortunately (or rather fortunately) I'm in the middle of tearing apart the suspension and brakes so I can't bring my car this year. I pulled the struts to send them off to Ground Control... 🤑
  10. I did! They're awesome!! Here are a few pics with Continental Pro Contact 195 50 15s Zero spacers and 100% stock suspension. The only thing I need to figure out is how to replace the ROTA center caps with BMW ones. I haven't even tried to look into that yet. Next up this winter are coil overs, bushings, sway bars and breaks.
  11. +1 I have all new belts from @bluedevils including the upgraded 3 point rear belts. They are awesome.
  12. I have some! 13" from my '76. Pictures b elow. I'll email you too.
  13. So far I'm pretty happy with my 15" 4x100 Rota mesh wheels (et25) with 195/50-15 tires. https://www.amazon.com/PCS-ROTA-MESH-WHEELS-15X7/dp/B01CNL3BEU
  14. Oh man! I'm half tempted to fly down there from Seattle just for the day...
