BMW 2002 restoration

I’m noticing more and more BMW 2002’s popping up on forums and blogs lately, and I finally got to see two fine examples in the flesh at the recent Stance|Works Melbourne meet. To say I’m a fan would be an understatement, I love these little things, so maybe the increased exposure is all in my head because I want to see more of them. Regardless, I was fishing through my submissions folder and became disgusted with myself after noticing this build just sitting there, waiting to be featured. This build is just that little bit more special considering it was the owners first car. After being in storage for 10 years, he dusts off the cobwebs and begins a very detailed restoration, bringing it back to better than factory condition. I’m really in awe over just how much work the owner takes on himself, dabbling in just about every aspect of the build, my hat is tipped!

Thanks to Sebastian for the link.

  1. I’ve just bought a 1974 2002 so to see this on my favourite blog is like a sign from the petrol gods! Another inspiring car especially after the totalled 356 from the other day!

    Thanks guys, keep ’em coming, I always need something to do on my lunch break!

  2. Yo Anth! You need to install the FB share button on here so I can spam my wall whenever you make a new post 😀

  3. congrats on the purchase, you’re a lucky man! If by ‘guys’ you mean me, then thanks for the kind words 🙂 Build-Threads is a one-man show, hence the sometimes long amount of time between posts.

  4. Yo Mike! I think we need to sit down one day and work something out, I need some of your computer skillz, blog needs a few updates bru.

  5. @ anth: Go get the Socialize plugin – looks good, and with a bit of fiddling around it also works good 😉

  6. Anyone interested in an original Michelin, unused spare tire for a 1974 2002?
    Please contact me if so.

    thanks, Kip
