    how about a switch panel that goes to nothing, so you can pretend your turning on a bunch of random crap when people get in the car. Maybe have one labeled "DONT TOUCH" and pretend to accidentally hit it when reaching for the radio, just for fun.

    I did that as well, I just put a reaaaal strong tiny magnet on the inside of the ashtray and one of the metal plates on the back of my phone meant for one of the store bought magnet mounts, works great and is totally invisible

    rear brake work

    ahh, had a feeling I missed a spelling error somewhere in there, I filed down the edge because from what I have been told the sharp edge it came with is not ideal. And yes, friction compound. I haven't gotten to the adjustment, bleeding, or handbrake adjustment yet, but that should be done soon. I bought these shoes from blunttech: https://blunttech.com/products/3182282 a screwdriver jammed up against my leg worked just fine! (may cause rage inducing annoyance)

    rear brake work

    That was part of my decision to keep it stock, but less of one than the issue of cost and how well stock performs

    rear brake work

    Unfortunately, I haven't had the time to work on my 02 as often as I would like, but over the past week or so I have managed to make the time I needed to work on my rear brakes which have been needing replacing. Both wheel cylinders have been leaking so I began to figure out what I wanted to do. After looking at the options of rebuilding my rear brakes with the OEM tii parts or doing a possible rear disk brake upgrade, I decided to go with the OEM tii setup. I went with this because if I upgraded the rear brakes I would need to do the same with the front for it to match, and it didn't seem like the best financial decision at the time to go with new disks for each wheel. The wheel cylinder leaking ended up getting on the brake pads, which were worn and needed replacing soon regardless I still need to file down the edge of the new brake shoes on the bottom and top edge, as well as bleed the brakes after replacing the wheel cylinders. This was my first time working on brakes so the first side (passenger side) took far longer than the second side (drivers). I had difficulty reinstalling the spring but after some trial and error, I found that clamping each shoe in place and using vice-grips to wrestle the spring into place was the best option to get it seated correctly. . Next on my list, I will be swapping out shocks, maybe springs, or just going with coilovers instead. But I will need to do some more research first to make a proper decision on this, I'm not certain what springs I have at the moment, how long of a wait I should expect for Bilstein B8 front strut inserts/ rear shocks to be back in stock, and don't know pretty much anything for the coilover option.

    What did you do to your 2002 today !

    I feel like I'm reading a post from my future self. I'm not looking forward to it...

    It is looking like I won’t be bringing my tii this time. Even if I get the brakes done in time, I won’t be able to get the car back home in time. I’m still looking forward to meeting people and seeing some great cars regardless. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    What did you do to your 2002 today !

    Today I began replacing the rear wheel cylinders as well as brake shoes because both rear cylinders were leaking, not done with the process yet though. hopefully, I will have the time to get it done before SoCal Vintage... OK now that I have the legitimate things I did out of the way, has anyone made some clear sun visors for a 2002? like a dark tinted acrylic maybe, I'm thinking of doing one regardless, just curious if anyone has done it on an 02 yet, but i don't think its necessary to start a thread over this. I would think it would be a nice change from the old disintegrated foam ones in my car as of now (which I would store and save, of course)

    I should be there. Ideally with my tii and my father, if I get the rear drums done in time. I'm looking forward to seeing some fellow members of the community.

    Came to me mostly stock, there were a few modifications prior to my purchase of the vehicle. I hope to eventually repaint the car in Polaris silver I have not done any engine modification so far. Everything I have done with it so far and what I will do in the future can be found here: https://www.bmw2002faq.com/blogs/entry/1688-up-to-today/

    Need opinions...'74 tii

    polaris does rule.... I gotta fix that on mine. I don't have the most experience (really not much at all, I'm still learning) but that car looks pretty good from what I can see in the pictures. don't let small issues like a snorkel scare you away from a nice tii. if anything it would just make you more afraid to drive it the way it was meant to be driven because of the chance of needing to replace an all original nose. Also definitely have someone go out and take a look at it first.. I didn't and now I have a 1972 tii conversion unintentional parts car for my 73tii. Ideally, you would want someone from the 02 community to check it out but it might not work out that way.

    I won't complain that they are replicas if they didn't cost me any extra! plus they are still good quality it seems
