Picking up a 1975 2002 on Monday

Posted by JUMPNYC 
January 13, 2010 09:06PM
Anyone have any experience with these? Tips on what i need to do right away besides oil change?

I will post up pics next week.

Heres what I know so far, it has a blown automatic transmission (I have a replacement here to swap in asap),
20,000miles on a rebuilt engine with a new weber carb on it. Shock towers were redone recently, there is rocker panel rust on both sides I am going to replace those.

Besides this little project my E30 is running well, took it down to Miami from NY right before thanksgiving without a hiccup.

Hope all is well with everyone and wishing them a belated happy new year!

Cool! Can't wait to see the pics. I've always loved the 2002. They're like the grandfather to our E30s. I have no experience to offer, though, as I have sadly never had one. I just know that like most cars from that era, they are susceptible to rust, so be very wary about anything that looks like rust.

Someday I would still like to find one to play with, preferably rust-free one and with a manual tranny. But prices on these things aren't going down any more!

You're such a tease smiling smiley
But thanks for the hold over!

Side question: What wheels are those? Did you do the 5 lug conversation?

Nope I still rock 4x100, I have all the parts for the 5 lug swap but I have a couple of sets of 4x100 rims that still have plenty of meat on the tires.

That pic is with the 15" Style 10's they came stock on some on e30s I think they might have been off a 325IX.
January 14, 2010 11:38PM
Congrats!

When Rick(rkj) sees this post, he will be giving you lots of good advice; he's an old 2002 enthusiast and mechanic thumbs up

If they came off an iX, they would be rubbing on the struts...the offset is huge compared to the regular E30.

I'm pretty sure I've never seen those wheels on an E30 as stock items; at least not in NA. It's possible they were optional items available for purchase though.
January 14, 2010 11:51PM
Wow it seems on this chart

[felgenkatalog.auto-treff.com]

that there were not more models of this type of rim produced. I could have sworn they came with the IX, but you are right the IX has a different offset.

Which wheels came on stock 325IX's? What was the offset they ran compared to the 325IC?

UPDATE:

BMW sytle 10 wheels 15x7, Made by Technocast in Italy for BMW as an optional wheel

I really want a set of 4x100 15" BMW wheels!

I always thought that the ix wheels would be a relatively quick replacement. Peter, you say the offset is way off between the two? Is it off in a direction that can be corrected for?

My understanding was that the ix was the only car that had 4x100 15" wheels. At least in any real quantity? I am soooo hijacking this thread...

The iX originally came with basketweaves just like all the other E30s, except they were 15x7, with a 41mm offset. So yes, you could theoretically put them on a regular E30 with the use of spacers. However, good luck finding some good ones. I've been looking for a good set to put on my iX for years. Occasionally you see them for sale, but IME every iX basketweave on the planet is bent. So if you do buy a set, you need to add the cost of straightening, which is about $100/wheel. And they will be bent! And if by some miracle someone finds a straight set, I call dibs! smiling smiley

Did someone say 2002, what do you want to know. Be careful with the wheels, larger wheels make that nifty little car steer like a truck, it is very sensitive to off-set and wide tires; my set-up was 175x60x13 on Tii wheels, those wheels were basketweaves but an older style that was an option on the 2002 Tii.

The problem with 13 inch tires is there's not much to choose from anymore, but the minute you put wide tires on them you've lost the beauty of the car. I worked for Bmw in 1971-73 and have owned 6 2002 cars, one 1973 Tii- one thing to worry about is RUST, rust, and did I mention rust!

I changed up to 325's because they're built a bit stronger and they did not rust so bad, I miss my 2002 but not all the little stuff I used to hate about them, small brakes, lower control arms .......... Good luck, I mentioned the rust, right?

Rick
January 16, 2010 10:53AM
Rick, you forgot to mention the overheating problems! Actually not really that serious a problem, but the radiator was sized very close to minimum.

I had an identical 1973 tii and shod it with 165-70 michelin AS tires on 13' rims. Loved the trailing throttle oversteer handling. I messed with plenty of pony cars in those days, and on twisty bumpy backroads, they were no match, in spite of their almost double the HP.

Salut, Bob p.

Uhh - oh my god - smart women will swoon when the rust is gone! Keep smelling salts under the seat. Key word here is SMART women. If you don't like smart girls, buy a different car now! Chose wisely. The light blue color is stunning.

Best of Luck, Kelly

Make sure the rear sub-frame mounts and surrounding area is solid (they always go there), the main bolt that holds the rear cross-member is under the rear seat, outboard, close to the inner side panel on the floor, its in a well.

Look under the car around where that bolt goes through; that's an important spot. In fact, that whole body is important to keep the car from flexing. I gave up on 2002's because I couldn't find clean ones anymore (and the Thirty's were better, not looking though!)

Throw the slush box out first thing and put a stick in there, you can do the five speed, the car needs another gear for sure...

January 19, 2010 07:54PM
Thanks for the compliments and tips! I think im going to keep it autotragic for now, if my wife learns to drive a manual I would go for the swap!

Fish bowl lenses' make me dizzy. I've got nothing against autoboxes but with a four banger there's nothing that makes that car less fun sad smiley

Good luck with it, keep that rust at bay!
January 21, 2010 05:44PM
JUMPNYC, how much time and money do you intend to put into a project like this?
I'm sure it all depends on the state of the car, or where you want the car to be at by the end.
A friend just saw the thread and asked me how much a project like that might "cost", and I didn't have an answer for him.

I can't wait to see how the car turns out smiling smiley

Well my budget was $1000, when its over it will probably be 10 times that. I will let you know as we progress.
The rust issue is already turning out to be a semi-nightmare, the passenger side has a big ass flintstones hole in the floor!
The rocker panels are FUBAR!!

I keep meeting good peeps with 2002's from the forums that are giving me hard to find parts for cheap (or even better FREE!)
Good friends with auto experience that work for beer helps, and make sure to be around to help with their rides too!
I am going to pitch in as much as I can, but I am working with enthusiastic car people and there is no time frame or pressure.
Just a bunch of motorheads that itch for the next project!! (Speaking of I have my eye on a VW convertible next).

I have stuff laying around from my E30 like BBS rims and other random stuff.
I just got a set Ireland engineering swaybars, strut bar, oil, oil filter, fuel filter, valve cover gasket, primer, rust stuff (POR-!5's Metal Ready, Eastwood Brushable Seam Sealer & Rust Encapsulator Kit) this stuff set me back like 900 bucks alone. So at this point we are getting close to 1800 without labor, or body parts

I need floorboards and passenger door, and rocker panels bad! this is going to be where the majority of the hard stuff is going to come in,
but hopefully the warm spring days will be here soon!! Until then i am on a parts hunt!

Also figure a couple of hundred to register, insure and inspect it!

A few companies used to make quite a bit of body work for the 2002's, Bav was selling stuff too but that was a while ago. The later cars will be easier to find sheet metal for, 74-76
January 22, 2010 02:25PM
Seeing that amount of rust, I'm getting more and more convinced that now is the right time to put my E30 to a retired state. Fix all issues before it gets too bad (some minor spots out of sight here and there).

Looks like a fun project, you'll definitely put more money in than you'll ever get out of it. Being busy and having fun may cost a bit. Driving it afterwards will make it all worthwhile.
Some styling elements on that car are still being used today. Can you believe?

The Parts Car!!

February 19, 2010 08:37PM
With all due respect(and that isn't much) I saw a couple of morons showing complete disrespect for the dead.

Instead of destroying what life was left in that poor car; why wasn't it left to rust in pieces or put on a trailer?

Sorry but machine abuse doesn't sit well with me...even if that had been a Yugo or worse, a Ford!
February 19, 2010 09:41PM
With all due respect, but that is what a PARTS CAR is for. Calling me a moron for having some fun with it before its demise is just ignorance.

Its guts will live on in my 2002. MY 2002 IS LIKE ROBOCOP MOTHERFUCKER!

BTW it went on a trailer and got me 200 bucks for scrap, and I probably have $1000 in parts not including a running engine and transmission.

NOT BAD FOR A $300 PARTS CAR!!! This moron will laugh all the way to the bank.

Meanwhile my 2002 will be running longer than your car probably will be around.

Well, your video clearly shows the left rear wheel was not operating properly. Either the brake was stuck or the wheel bearing was seized.
Had you actually taken the time to analyse that, you could have figured out what to do without the lunacy.

Recycling is one thing but what you call fun is tantamount to tipping headstones in the cemetery...I pity the car that's getting the donor parts as I'm sure it will be abused too sad smiley
February 19, 2010 11:28PM
Dude,

It was a 1972 car, it did not have limited slip differential. Left wheel was operating properly, it was on ICE. WE HAD TO MOVE IT!

BOTH FRONT WHEELS WERE FLAT. We drove it 3 blocks to my friend shop and stripped a cancerous body with a good heart.

That heart will be transplanted into another donor and it will run and live to drive another day. It will reach out and keep other cars running or looking

cosmetically better with its parts. One sacrifice to save many others to come. Every salvageable piece was saved to live to serve another day.

The video was only meant to entertain, I am sorry it got you feeling depressed. Sorry about the snuff film. Stay positive!

A) How do you know it isn't working properly from that video?
B) What does it matter if it is functioning or not?

Peter, you have just insulted another human being on multiple occasions because you think he is disrespecting the soul of a car. I *might* understand if the car belonged to you, or you had some other connection to it than having only seen a video of it online. As much as we love these things, they are still hunks of metal, with more less ethical value than another human.

This thread was going lovely until he posted a video, and Peter trashed him for it. After that it just turned into a pissing contest for which neither side had any chance of "winning". Demeaning a person is neither educational, nor helpful to ones own argument. Maybe something happened offline, or in a different thread that I missed, and this ended up being the straw that broke the camels back. But to me it just looks like a straw, and whether I like it or not doesn't lead me to directly insult anyone. I guess that's just me...

Hi Guy,

Sorry I rained on your parade
It's just something I'm a little sensitive about.

I should eally have been upset at the previous owners for having let that car fall into such a bad state.
You are doing a good thing by saving as much of it as you can and part of it's 'soul' will live on thanks to your efforts.

I really do wish you luck on the restoration project...it should be a sweet ride once it's done

Again, sorry for my rant on the forum,

Peter


Dont sweat it! I was 5 jack and cokes in when I retorted. Yes I was mad at the cars previous owner for that state of car as well.
That is why I had to take action to recover what I could from it, when I found it in that state.
I know we love our cars, that is why we are on this forum because we are passionate about our BMWs!
My friends that helped me out are also BMW 2002 HEADS. This sacrifice will keep their cars on the road longer as well.
If it was worth saving, believe me we probably would have tried to save her, like I am doing with the current project 2002.
It can be difficult to locate parts for these 70's cars, and a good thing to have as I have learned is cheap spare parts.

Best of luck and happy motoring!
Johnny

Hi Johnny,

I may have had a beer at that time too

Several of us have been watching your progress with interest. I know that Rick(rkj) is/was an avid 2002 nut and he wants to see this happen too.

No matter how boring you think any pics would be, just post them...it all adds to the spirit of the project

Thank you very much for saving yet another beautiful old BMW from an ignoble death in the wrecker grave yard.
When you get to the gates and St Peter askes what you ever did to serve humanity; you can proudly claim that you saved a worthy soul from oblivion and probably the hell of being recycled as a Kia winking smiley
August 25, 2010 11:11PM
Thanks for the kind words. The 2002 is a culmination of work that comes with trying to get a vision to reality. There is still a long way to go.

Also, thanks for the input. I still need to fab brackets to put on the smaller euro bumpers.
Right now I am in the process of dynamatting the interior to make it quiet and cool (no A/C is why I chose a white roof, also I think the two tone makes it pop!).

I picked up the skirts and rear valance for dirt cheap off Craigslist (I think I got lucky!). I figured it would make it look different from every other 2002 that I see. The side and rear skirts were blended in with the rear body panels but left off the front fenders, in case they ever need to get swapped. I also shaved the reflectors on the front fenders, removed the belt line trim and filled the clip holes, deleted the sunroof.

I am still trying to locate parts like the door weather stripping and a light grey carpet set.

The next step I need to get to the carpeting, headliner and getting my spare E30 sport seats recovered I hear they are bolt in. Eventually figure out a sound system to install and Im sure lots of other stuff. Will continue to keep you in the loop.

As for the parts cars I have good news, a couple of my buddies are now on the search to save the 2002s! We are going up to Maine tomorrow to pick up the next project already!
August 27, 2010 02:21PM
Wow, a lot of work done already. Looking good! Keep us posted!
August 31, 2010 10:28PM
New Project Arrives!

picked this up for my boy Mitchell







Trip to Maine and back for a 1976! Not much work to do to her, just a rocker panel. Already had the floors done, and suspension work!

mine on the lift



since painting my 2002 alot of my friends are hunting for these cars for us to restore now. I guess we started a new club!

Now I need to get some time to do the bodywork on the E30 now the summer is soon going to end.

Hey Guys!

Hope everyone is having a happy new year and staying warm.

A few update shots before she was parked for the winter season.

Put the rear early style bumper on, still trying to decide how I want to run the front fender.



The xmas present



Chilling....literally!





The E30 has been parked for now. No use taking it out on the salty roads.



My E34 my mom has been DDing since she totalled her Nissan, I don't think she wants to give it back to me.



I picked up a 2001 540 E39 I will start working on next week. It needs some work on the cooling system.

I plan on installing a manual tranny in it when I get a chance, this spring.



Stocked up for the winter!!

I know a person who builds cabinets, he may give you an estimate of something simple, say 5mx3m roof, 2m high from the floor...
Is more difficult/expensive to get covered parking in big cities, where a garage often costs more than a room!

Well the BMWs still get love even tho they are left outside this year, I clean the snow off them asap.

Im going to buy a cover next year for the 2002, or garage it. Its at my buddys house right now.

It kind of got stuck at his place, the shifter T-handle broke somehow and will not lift the selector over the ridge to put it from park to drive.

I figured if he didn't mind and its out of the way and safe. I needed a new shifter, and the part should be here today.

The E30 is sitting in my gated parking lot, and I clean the snow off it everyday.

This spring its going for a repaint, so I am keeping it off the road till the salty roads clear.

The battery for the E30 is in my living room, lol. The E34 is for sale, so my mom is driving it till she finds another car or it gets sold.

The E39 is waiting for a new battery, its dead in the driveway. I will do that tomorrow, weather permitting.

My 2002 stuck in the snow. Now it turned to ice, we cant even use the snow blowers to get her out.

Now you can build an igloo around it, and have it in shelter until spring or the next rain, whatever comes first!

I hate the cold...

Ressurecting the old dead thread....Heres how she looks today after I put on the front spoiler.





Still have to fix the seatbelts, gas pedal, put speakers in the doors and upholster the E30 sport seats.

More to come soon.

Hope all is well with everyone, and have a great Labor Day!

That color will really turn heads. Sure is looking good. Just like the TV show, "if you want this stuff, you have to build it."

Great job.

Who would have thought that something this good looking could have evolved from that tarnished looking thing that had the guts revved out of it in a snowy, icy driveway winking smiley

Thanks for resurrecting and saving this one!
