Pictures of Restoration

Have decided the restoration of my 1972 1602 is long overdue. Here are the first pictures of the car being disassembled prior to the motor being pulled and then off for rust removal and paint.

Here's a shot of the driver's side window showing the spot where the window seal leaked and the rusty result. If any of you have bubbled paint anywhere around the windows, this is what you're in for.

The rear window seal also leaked and resulted in more rust.

Ah well,
The motor is being pulled next weekend. Then the car is going to have all body issues dealt with. I'll post pics of the engine rebuild as the winter drags on.

You should acid dip the entire chassis and then seam weld the car !
John Dimoff @ raven performance knows a shop that does this.. the car will be better than new !

Good luck

That's really nice.

I had a 72 2002 in the Caribbean, brought over from Canada. This car was done up all rally style and had lots of performance work on it. Aluminum flywheel, twin Weber 48 side draft carbs, headers, racing pipes, deep dish wheels, full black leather interior (custom covered) all stainless steel braided hoses with clamp covers spray painted to match the metalic Candy Apple Red the car was painted in.

I came over to Canada and left the damn car there. I loved this car so much and completely regret not bringing it here.

This is the car which caused me to become addicted to BMW's :D

Lets see it when completed. *th-up*
