  1. Two pair of early bumper brackets, $40/pair, local pick up or buyer pays for S/H. Please email.
  2. I have a 1974 that is ready to accommodate the bumpers I have, however when I picked them up, I was unable to get the brackets for the front bumper. I am located in Portland OR, and I am on the fence over having someone make a set of brackets vs picking up some pre 73 brackets and making them work. The car is not show quality and I could care less where the bumper ends up sitting, but I would love to get my hands on a set of brackets to make this work sooner than later. Let me know what you've got!
  3. I have a 1976 BMW 2002 that needs to pass smog in California. I have the smog pump but not the brackets needed to make it fit. If you make any parts needed to assemble the pump, please reply because I'm not exactly sure what I need. My father is the one doing most of the work on it, but we can't seem to find these parts anywhere.
  4. This adapter set addresses the "high ride" that is produced from using Scheel sliders with Recaro adapters. I discovered the problem myself when installing my own seats. I'm 5'11"and my hat was almost touching the ceiling of the car. So whats a tinkerer to do but engineer a solution. These will allow the use of stock sliders. A bit of a seat wiki has been formed from the "gauging interest" post I have in the general discussion. Link to that thread is here: http://www.bmw2002faq.com/component/option,com_forum/Itemid,50/page,viewtopic/t,361835/start,0/ And here is my personal blog entry concerning the design process.. http://1leadshoe.blogspot.com/search?q=scheel Boiled down, here are the general findings. • Common to all Scheel seats is a 405mm side to side measurements between bolt holes. • There are variances between the front to rear measurements for the mounting hole of the sliders. • The overall width for mounting stock sliders is consistent for all years of '02. 445mm side to side. 340mm hole center to hole center on the stock slider. SIDEBAR: We CAN adapt either of these designs for other BMW models with different spans between the sliders, we would just need to gather dimensions. In my designs, as seen in the photos, the pre configured mounting points for the seat frames are based on the measurements taken from my Scheel sliders. 405mm side to side (seat), and 388mm front to back on the four corner holes (slider). **PLEASE CONFIRM THE DIMENSIONS ON YOUR SEATS BEFORE ORDERING** Common to the two types of seat adapters: • The adapters will ship with button head SS fasteners to be used for attaching the stock sliders. • The adapters will be shipped raw, unless otherwise specified. • Black Powder Coat is optional. Contact me for pricing. • Prices do not include shipping. Adapter Type 1 $90.00 each or $170.00 a set. • Open center perimeter bracket to stock sliders. • Overall seat frame support dimension: 510mm X 435mm. Here are fitment photos from the car with the plates installed on both sides.. If you are interested in a single or a set, please shoot me a private message. Thanks all..
  5. Is there a comprehensive list of all the different trim clips/brackets/studs needed for the exterior trim/molding? Does anyone know the amount of plastic trim clips/metal brackets needed to install the exterior trim?? Thanks in advance!
  6. I picked up a front and rear bumper quite awhile back with the intent on doing the swap on my 74. I have a vision for the look of my car, but not quite the budget to get it all done at once. That being said, I finally got around to removing the park benches and now I am looking at installation of the bumpers I have. The rear one I picked up had no overriders, but I bought some from a friend and they seem to fit with no problems. I am going with a set of short bumpers as I might eventually do flares. I don't think I'll run into any issues with the rear The front one however seems to be giving me some issues. I believe there are different variations of the overriders now that I look at the ones I have. My front bumper sides have the rubber strip (1973 only?) and the front center section has 4 holes, looks flatter, but no rubber strip. I appear to have one correct overrider (looks as though it has a notch for the rubber strip on one side) and one that does not look like it would fit as well. This is by no means a show car, so I am not opposed to removing the rubber strip on the sides (possibly replacing it with a 3M generic trim moulding) or I could notch the other overrider that I have. Thirdly, I can just source the correct overriders and sell the ones i have (most preferable) Can anybody confirm my suspicions that there are different years for the overrider brackets and which ones I should look for and or a possible solution to making what I have work?
  7. I have a few sets of the original OEM 5-speed mounting brackets for the Getrag 245 on the '02. Part number 41121808830 which has been NLA for a while. Asking $45 a pair plus shipping. Buyer pays any PayPal fees if necessary.
  8. Hey Everyone, So I thought I would share some information that may be helpful to others. When I started the project I didnt intend on documenting it as a DIY as I was basically learning as I went. For years my brother and I have wanted to learn more metal fab, especially welding. I wanted new seats for my 2002 but because I often daily the car I wanted something comfortable but with bolsters so I went with e30 seats. Because of this choice custom seat brackets were necessary. After picking up the super cheap harbor freight welder on a special we started work. And yes the harbor fright welder is not great... but it taught me why its not great while still being able to get basic jobs done. You can get everything you need for this job at your local home depot. After a few discussions we decided because of the height of the e30 seats we need to get them as low as possible. Reupholstered e30 seats To install the e30 seats you must cut out the original 2002 seat brackets. We did this using our grinder and cutting disc. Be very careful not to cut threw your transmission tunnel. Also beware of the factory welds are quite old and can actually pull threw the sheet metal if you attempt to just fatigue the welds (bending the tack welded sheet metal back and forth to snap the weld) instead of cutting them... how do I know? Well it happened to us and we had to patch the hole using a copper spoon. Unfortunately I don't have pictures of the cut brackets as I was not happy with the hole. Using 1" square steel and 1" angle steel we cut the rails using a grinder with a cutting disc. We had good results clamping it to our work bench to make a ghetto ban saw. We measured 3" in from each ends and welded in the steel. Checking often for fitment and square angles. The main issue with the e30 seats in the 2002 are the two humps under the seats on the floor. Basically the seats are longer than the hump so you teeter on the hump with no easy way to mount. Also for proper position you have to sit 50/50 on the hump. So you must create a flat mount for the seats to the factory locations while still supporting it compensating for the hump and keeping it as low as possible. This was our solution. Bolt hole locations. Watch for brake lines and Measure twice! Next we welded the 4x bolts and support rear legs. So our bracket bolts to the hump with 4 large bolts welded to the angle steel. The bracket drops threw the car and bolts underneath. The rear support legs are roughly 3" long. We played with ideas of welding this or bolting it in but felt it worked really well as is. Very important as these legs support a large amount of the weight. Then a bit of black paint. The bracket attaches to the seat using the seat's factory 4 mounting holes and cutting holes at the ends of the bracket and attaching with bolts, a couple washers and nuts. Attaching the bracket to the seat then dropping the seats threw the floor and bolting it all in. All done! Baxter was a fan. Overall the project was awesome and am very happy with the results. The seats are super comfortable and great bolster. The project was frustrating at times but I am so happy we went all the way and started to learn how to weld. Our welds aren't great at all and the brackets aren't the prettiest but its a great first project as its not seen mostly. The negatives of the project are that no matter what the e30 seats will not sit directly in-front of the pedals unless you modify the factory seat mounts on the e30. Its slight but not lined up. This didn't bother me much. Also you could have issues with the hand pull for rear seat access hitting the door panel so its important to mount the seats as close to the transmission hump as possible. Last issue is you will need to get new carpet for the center hump. Unfortunately for me I decided on these seats after I just installed a new kit from Esty (D'oh!) . And I think carpet I ordered is out of stock and may not ever be back so not 100% the direction I am going to go. Its only seen when you look down to where the brackets where so it doesn't stick out. Sorry that I didn't have better photos or measurements but I thought it could help someone that was in a similar spot as I.
  9. I am looking for a set of early bumper brackets to convert my '76 to accept chrome bumpers. Additionally I am looking for the two brackets (4 pieces in total) to mount the rear bumpers. Appreciate any help! Thanks, Kyle
