  1. Having him look into this. Wondering if it's lighting or an actual problem. UPDATE - this was an actual problem. No idea how it gets to paint like this, but he's fixing it. 🤦‍♂️
  2. Had some final fitment issues on the hood / trunk. Evidently this has now been sorted. I'm reluctant to say paint is happening *today* but apparently that was the goal. We'll see.
  3. Finally getting closer. Jambs and interior done, exterior is next. 3x paint, 3x clear. Confirmed the serial is covered up and just primer, though looks like I'll need some new boots on the rear shock ends.
  4. Getting closer, doors are off and they were aiming to spray jambs today. Pulled all the old sound deadening out of the interior. Need to order some Dynamat.
  5. Progress!! Will weld in the IE support for the driver's side mount and paint subframe. Bay prep will continue.
  6. Welded. Better than tossing some filler in there and hoping for the best, but not 100% factory either.
  7. More good progress. Paint sometime next week. (He said tomorrow.) Apparently they've had a tough time fitting the front fenders, but they look pretty solid now.
  8. More progress photos. Engine is coming out this week. (I've heard this on 4 different occasions, at least.) Once that's done, reinforcing the driver's side mount and spraying the subframe. Then, blocking / final primer on the engine bay, and then it's off to paint. I might see it back home in 2-3 weeks, at earliest.
  9. New thought - get a late model base section to replace the one in my stock shift lever. I'm not THAT tied to a short shift, and that keeps the stock look and boot. Is that usually how this goes? Thanks everyone!
  10. Automatic for the people! NM/NA but local to me. https://losangeles.craigslist.org/sgv/cto/d/altadena-1975-bmw-2002-e10/7347188565.html
  11. Thanks Mike! It is indeed the opening at the top of the round boot. Plus aesthetically it'll look odd, maybe? I was thinking of the vinyl "witches hat" style boot, as opposed to the late model, accordion style rectangular based-boot. It looks a bit like one from a period Datsun Z, minus the little strings at the top to tie it off. I checked Koogleworks, but it wasn't clear if it worked with the round flange. Looked like it worked well with later model long console-style bases. Will yours have a little elastic around the bottom to fit on the round flange? May just use my existing boot for now, until Andrew's is ready for prime time. Or, if you'd like me to test, happy to do so!
  12. Did the search thing for a while here, but haven't had much luck - does the later model vinyl shift boot work on the pre Modell 71 shifter flange, for a short shift lever? (Say that 5 times fast!) My car has the round shift boot flange, short console, and a round rubber shift boot. However, it doesn't look like the round boot will fit on the fatter shift lever. I think @esty made these at some point? Open to suggestions, thanks all!
