  1. Winter is coming. (Day ~69er-76) Braking my heart It seems that I have 2 leaking fittings on the front calipers, I think the bleeders aren’t seating properly. I managed to stop the leaks but it’s not a permanent fix. I believe I have Tii brakes which were spaced for vented rotors. I might need to get some professional help with those but I will leave that to next year because winter is coming. I’ll try buying some new quality bleeder fittings first. Timing‘n’Tuning I’ve been messing around with my timing light and playing with the adjustment to the Webers. I’ve been getting a lot of helpful advice from the good ole boys on BMW2002FAQ. It’s difficult for me, the timing numbers I’ve found don’t seem to work well with the motor. I’ve changed the distributor cap and rotor, plus ordered some new spark plug wires. My DCOEs are not a matched set (came with car), so things are extra difficult and I’m weighing-out some options. Every time I take a step forward something pushes me at minimum 1 step back, it’s very frustrating. Interior Pretty Stuff The Center Console from Hell. The vinyl on the sides of the center console was thin and also wrinkly, I decided I was going to recover it with some fresh vinyl. I had just enough vinyl left over to recover both sides of the center console. Setback 1 Unfortunately I ended up having to recover the both sides a second time because as it turned out I didn’t pull the fabric far enough on the backside where the center console face sits (containing radio, gauges, etc), thus staples and slits in the vinyl would be visible in the front. I discovered this during the test fit, so I went to purchase some more vinyl, un-stapled it all and redid it. Vinyl (Before): New Vinyl (After): I used some thin MDF, and reinforced it with a 2nd layer in a few areas. The reason I went with thin MDF was because I needed a bend and MDF is pretty easy to work with. For those who want to attempt something similar, here’s a collage of photos, I also wrote out some of the steps I did below the image. - Photo 1: I traced out the shape of the center console on the MDF, including the cut-outs for the 3 VDO gauges and the Stereo. - Photo 2: I cut those out with the jigsaw. - I then plotted the toggle switches and hazard switch. o For the toggle switches, I found them to be too pronounced, they would stick out more than I liked (from console face). So, instead of cutting a small hole to secure the switch (with the threaded plastic nut), I cut the silhouette of the full switch. The plan was to glue a 2nd piece of MDF behind the face where the switched would be secured with the plastic nut. This would recess the switches a little. - Photo 3: I cut 3 pieces of MDF to the shape of the bend I needed. o I used a small amount of hot water on a rag to lightly moisten the console MDF where the bend was needed. o I bent the console MDF a little by hand, then clamped the it to 3 pieces I cut with some glue to secure the shape. - Photo 4: I added to pieces to extend the sides of the console, made a tray for the stereo to rest and added the toggle switch backing piece. - Photo 5: I applied and sanded a light coat of body filler to fix any imperfections and provide a smooth surface. - Photo 6: I applied 3 light coats of satin black spray paint. - Photo 7: I applied 3 coats of matte clear coat Setback 2 - Photo 8: The console was finished and ready for another test fit but I managed to knock it off my workbench. Most of the damage was at the top left. o I did not want to start from scratch, so I repaired the gauge using some MDF glue and then more body filler. Setback 3 - Photo 9: I applied 2 coats of satin black, there wasn’t much paint left in the can. Unfortunately the nozzle sprayed out some globs of paint and I also ended up with a nice drip mark. o I sanded the drip mark and other imperfections with a fine grit paper. Setback 4 - Photo 10: I applied 3 light coats of matte clear coat and for some reason there was a chemical reaction which made cracks throughout. - Photo 11: Sanded the paint cracks away, applied 3 more light coats of clear coat and wet sanded the few imperfections. - Photo 12: Test fitted the everything in the completed center console. Not in collage: Setback 5 o The wires for the switches were too short to be able to wire up it up before positioning it, needed a couple of inches of play, went out to buy a wiring harness for the switch and decided to do the same for the gauges. o Used double sided tape under the stereo and installed an L-bracket behind the stereo to hold it in place. o Pre-drilled 6 holes (3 per side) to hold the center face in place through the vinyl sides. o Installed a aluminium bracket across the top of the console which with a hole to secure the center console to the dash (using an existing u-clip). Setback 6 o Installed an L-bracket in front of shiter to secure console to the tunnel with a self tapping screw. The self tapping screw pulled a tread from the new carpet and there is now a thin line missing loops in the carpet (right in front of shifter). - I think I will make some kind of vinyl cover for this area and try to make it look like it should be there. Final product Parcel Shelf I made a new parcel shelf cover out of some ¼ MDF with black vinyl. I used the old piece as a template, then cut out place for the speakers. I cut the full outline of the speakers, so that the speaker cover would be recessed and not sitting on top of the parcel shelf, thus less pronounced. Refreshing the Door Card backings The old door cards weren’t in the best condition, especially the driver side so I decided to make some new door cards out of ¼ plywood. Original Driver side old door card. I removed the door card cover carefully and used it as a template, I stenciled all the holes/shapes on the new plywood. I noticed some of the holes aren’t used/necessary, so I didn’t plan on cutting those out. Using a jig saw and hole saw, I cut out the shape and pieces. The plywood is slightly thicker than the stock cardboard so the door card clips do not fit well. I found a trick, by inserting a screwdriver in the hole at an angle, I apply pressure to the back and front (of the plywood) simultaneously and twist the screwdriver 360’. This removes the top veneer of the birch plywood. It’s not pretty but it’s effective. I test fitted the door card to the door, everything lined up well. I reattached the top portion of the door card skin by bending the metal tabs back out. I used a flat head screw driver with a hammer. I sprayed some 3m Super 77 spray on the plywood and door card skin for good measure, then I stapled the skin to the back of the door card. Door Card Install I had previously adjusted both the driver and passenger windows it was annoying and time consuming. Now before installing the door cards, I needed to make sure I had the windows adjustment as best as possible, I spent about another 30 mins on the passenger window over the long weekend (Canadian thanksgiving). Once I finished, I sprayed some lithium grease all over to lubricate the mechanism and protect against rust on the inner door. Now I could install the vapour barrier and door card. We had some left over polyethylene vapour barrier from construction so that was what I planned on using. Steps. - Cut vapour barrier to size/shape, test fit it. Temporarily fix it in place at the top, then flip the bottom up to apply an adhesive. Flip it back down apply a little pressure so the adhesive contacts to vapour barrier (note: I also used a few small pieces of tuck tape). - To install the door card in place, I attached a long piece of masking tape to the door-lock pin and fished it through the hole, if you don’t do this, it will be difficult to get the door-lock pin through the opening. Push card down to clip it to the top of the door, I also used a hammer with a piece of 2x4 with some light taps to push the front portion down. - Put the 2 springs over the window winder and vent window knob. Pop the door clips in, some require more pressure than others. - Install the window winder and vent window knob with plastic washer. Install door arm rest and door handle. Final product: Grills Before re-installed the front grills, I covered the 2 hood bracket support ‘bar’s with some black (sticker) vinyl. These are generally visible when the grill is installed, so you’d see a 2 bright red bars behind the grill. I also used Megiuars Ultimate Black on the grills. Here’s a before (top) and after (bottom), not much to see here. 1st Drive around the block. Frustrated with how long everything is taking in terms of the tuning, I messed around with the timing and carburetors some more on Saturday and felt like I got the motor to a point where I felt a (mini) drive was in order, equipped with a couple of screw drivers, wrenches and a fire extinguisher, I took the car around the block a couple of times. Everything went well, and the car felt smoother than before the I started this project, I was expecting a rougher ride due to the urethane bushings and all. Short anticlimactic video from Sunday.
