  1. Chapter 3 - Interior

    I got mine from Rogers TII, http://rogerstii.com/. However I believe Blunt Tech carries them as well.
  2. Jeff's 1969 BMW 2002

    For attaching pictures to my blog
  3. Chapter 3 - Interior

    GAHH is very common provider of high quality upholstery for many classic vehicles, link below. This includes use of German vinyl. Most upholsterers will know of them as a producer of material which can then just be fitted to your existing frames and padding. My shop reused what remained of the horse hair and supplemented with some foam. Not cheap but as close to original as you'll get. https://www.gahh.com/interiors/seats?vehicle_make=223&models=4706&years=4881 Thanks for asking
  4. Feedback on MPG please

    I think you meant MPG in your title. However that being said, what is your top speed/RPM range on the highway? 5 speed will probably return you the most out of box lowering your RPMs during that highway driving.
  5. Chapter 3 - Interior

    While the car is still being painted I'm preparing some interior. Had the rear seat redone with GAHH covers, turned out nice. Purchased OEM door panels. Performed Flock it on my glove box. Will post more as I get them
  6. "Flock It" kit for Glove Box Restoration

    I did this as well. Seems like a lot of work but fairly straightforward. Thanks for posting, my box looks great.

    Yeah, easy upgrade and well worth it. Congrats. Sent from my SM-G920P using Tapatalk
  8. e21 Alt. Wiring Question

    Tape off the remaining wires or pull them out back to the regulator. Your call, they're not needed with this alternator because it has its own regulator. Sent from my SM-G920P using Tapatalk
  9. 1968 Road & Track Road Test of the BMW 2002

    1 year warranty, amazing how times have changed in our expectations. Thanks for sharing. Sent from my SM-G920P using Tapatalk
  10. Tires matter as well, stick with 195/50r15 for best results and you ideally want a 25mm offset rim for best results. Rears will work with that combo. Front may still need it. Sent from my SM-G920P using Tapatalk
  11. Fuel level sending unit 8" and 9"

    Do you know if the 8" is what a 1969 2002 would have used?

  13. Chapter 2 - Exterior

    Paint and body work has begun. I'll post photos as I get them. They'll be taking the paint down to the metal so should be some good pics along the way. Thanks for following. October 11th - Mostly down to bare metal, still some areas to remove. Typical rust spots located. Next update in a couple of weeks. Plan is for a December completion of paint.
  14. Curious did this work for you? Sent from my iPad using Tapatalk
  15. Svgarage, I'm in the Bay Area and doing the same. Out of curiosity. Where are you going to have your paint done? I'm looking as well. Thanks for any insight. Sent from my SM-G920P using Tapatalk
