Did away with the complicated ‘box mounted linkage for one of @akgmotorsport’s tunnel mounted linkage. My super-stuff polyurethane engine and transmission mounts mean that I there’s very little movement from the drivetrain and I can get away with this. The linkage rod they supplied didn’t quite fit my application, so I had a longer one made to the exact length I needed. #BMW#BMW2002#BMW02#2002BMW#2002fanatic#BMW02Club#BMW2002FAQ#M10b20#FourPot#BMWClub#Bimmer#Bimmers#Bimmerfest#BMWfans#BMWgram#UltimateDrivingMachine#UltimateKlasse#BMWClassic#Neueklasse#DriveTastefully#ClassicCarOfTheDay#ProjectCar#CarProject#GarageBuilt#GarageLife#GarageWRB@will_beaumont88

After replacing the faulty trigger wheel the engine started easily. On just a basic map and carbs not tuned at all, it ran so incredibly and unbelievably smoothly. It’s going to be so good once it’s been ran in and been tuned on a rolling road. #BMW#BMW2002#BMW02#2002BMW#2002fanatic#BMW02Club#BMW2002FAQ#M10b20#FourPot#BMWClub#Bimmer#Bimmers#Bimmerfest#BMWfans#BMWgram#UltimateDrivingMachine#UltimateKlasse#BMWClassic#Neueklasse#TwinCarbs#DHLA#DriveTastefully#ClassicCarOfTheDay#ProjectCar#CarProject#GarageBuilt#GarageLife#GarageWRB@will_beaumont88

Very little on the 02 has been left untouched, replaced or rebuilt. The five-speed gearbox, however, has just been cleaned as it was working absolutely perfectly before.

Going to have to rethink how the oil cooler is plumbed in. The route the pipes currently take mean I simply can’t make the grilles work, unless I cut them about so much to get them to fit.

I chose to use a MegaJolt engine management system for the 02. There are lots of other, very expensive and much fancier systems available, but because all I wanted to control was the ignition timing (and not fuel injection too) this simple, affordable and robust system seemed perfect. Plus, lots of ‘02s run it so there was plenty of info I could use to get mine up and running. I did have a nightmare to begin with, trying to get it started. That all stemmed from a faulty cheap trigger wheel sensor that came with the kit. It now has a quality sensor on it and it works fine. Buy cheap, buy twice! #BMW#BMW2002#BMW02#2002BMW#2002fanatic#BMW02Club#BMW2002FAQ#M10b20#FourPot#BMWClub#Bimmer#Bimmers#Bimmerfest#BMWfans#BMWgram#UltimateDrivingMachine#UltimateKlasse#BMWClassic#Neueklasse#DriveTastefully#ClassicCarOfTheDay#ProjectCar#CarProject#GarageBuilt#GarageLife#GarageWRB@will_beaumont88

As well as an oil cooler the 02’s engine is kept cool by a custom @forgemotorsport radiator. Made to the same dimensions as the original one, only thicker. Ok, because of my cock-up it was a bit too thick and I had to trim down the water pump pulley, but not by too much. #BMW#BMW2002#BMW02#2002BMW#2002fanatic#BMW02Club#BMW2002FAQ#M10b20#FourPot#BMWClub#Bimmer#Bimmers#Bimmerfest#BMWfans#BMWgram#UltimateDrivingMachine#UltimateKlasse#BMWClassic#Neueklasse#DriveTastefully#ClassicCarOfTheDay#ProjectCar#CarProject#GarageBuilt#GarageLife#GarageWRB@will_beaumont88

Look how cool that exhaust manifold is! Custom built by @retropowercars and coated by @zircotec. The engine, built by Thunder Engineering because I wanted to make the most of all the parts going into it, also includes ARP hardware, custom forged aluminium pistons, a baffled sump, a plate clutch, a 304-degree Schrick cam and an inlet manifold to suite two twin-choke 45mm carbs. It will also run on mapped ignition, but more on that another time. #BMW#BMW2002#BMW02#2002BMW#2002fanatic#BMW02Club#BMW2002FAQ#M10b20#FourPot#FourBanger#BMWClub#Bimmer#Bimmers#Bimmerfest#BMWfans#BMWgram#UltimateDrivingMachine#UltimateKlasse#BMWClassic#Neueklasse#DriveTastefully#ProjectCar#CarProject#GarageBuilt#GarageLife#GarageWRB@will_beaumont88

Did a bit more work on the front-end tonight. Cleaned it up with a wire wheel to remove the last of the undercoating and filler to fully expose the rust holes to patch. Cut out the cancer and made a patch piece. While there was a hole we were able to clean and treat the exposed rust with @por15inc Metal Prep 🤘Then welded in the patch after getting @eastwoodco internal frame seal into the spots we can’t reach with Por15. Then welded shut some the pin holes. One more patch to make on the front - right in the center (with a body line) - buuut it’s too damn cold and there’s apparently snow coming this weekend. Might be slow #progress for a bit. Our propane heater can’t keep up. · · · #bmw#bmw2002#bmw02#2002bmw#2002sday#m10#e10#classicbmw#bmwclassic#classic#classiccar#classiccars#instabmw#bmwpost#ultimateklasse#bavarianmotorworks#restoration#struggleworks#bmwfaq#bmw2002faq#diy#struggleworks#carsofinstagram

A break from all the geeky brake line talk, here’s a bit of shaky footage of my old 1602 (fitted with a 2-litre on twin 40 carbs) out on the road before it gave up it’s engine to power the earlier, round rear light shell. It sounds great for a standard-ish engine on small carbs, can’t wait to hear the high-compression 2.1-litre on bigger carbs under load. #BMW#BMW2002#BMW02#2002BMW#2002fanatic#BMW02Club#BMW2002FAQ#M10b20#FourPot#FourBanger#BMWClub#Bimmer#Bimmers#Bimmerfest#BMWfans#BMWgram#UltimateDrivingMachine#UltimateKlasse#BMWClassic#Neueklasse#DriveTastefully#ProjectCar#CarProject#GarageBuilt#GarageLife#GarageWRB@will_beaumont88

While doing the hard brake lines, I also plumbed in a @tiltoneng variable restrictor to the rears. I could have kept the standard, fixed restrictor as the rear brakes haven’t changed, they’re still drums, but if I want to put disks on the back in the future this means I won’t have to go back and re-do the brake lines to the rear. #BMW#BMW2002#BMW02#2002BMW#2002fanatic#BMW02Club#BMW2002FAQ#M10b20#FourPot#FourBanger#BMWClub#Bimmer#Bimmers#Bimmerfest#BMWfans#BMWgram#UltimateDrivingMachine#UltimateKlasse#BMWClassic#Neueklasse#DriveTastefully#ProjectCar#CarProject#GarageBuilt#GarageLife#GarageWRB@will_beaumont88

Not only made to my specified width, offset and PCD, but because the original design of for lighter Caterham-style cars, the spokes on mine are a bit more substantial.

Before being blasted, so as little damage was done to the metal as possible, the exterior was chemically stripped. The underseal, that in a phenomenally poor piece of forward planning I’d only had sprayed on a couple of years before at great expense, had to be removed by hand before blasting, too. #BMW#BMW2002#BMW02#2002BMW#2002fanatic#BMW02Club#BMW2002FAQ#M10b20#FourPot#FourBanger#BMWClub#Bimmer#Bimmers#Bimmerfest#BMWfans#BMWgram#UltimateDrivingMachine#UltimateKlasse#BMWClassic#Neueklasse#DriveTastefully#ProjectCar#CarProject#GarageBuilt#GarageLife#GarageWRB@will_beaumont88

When it was decided that it’d go back to bare metal and change the colour of the 2002, it was completely stripped; every part removed and all the sound deadening scraped off. The only ‘dry build’ I did was fit the cage (and weld in the reinforcing plates), add a fillet from the chassis legs to the bulkhead, mount the oil cooler and make sure the new body panels fitted.* The steel wing and fibreglass bonnet and boot fitted fine, but I went with all steel panels (including a pair of brand new doors) in the end for better finish and longevity. * I really wish I’d done a more through dry build now. Drilling holes in freshly painted bodywork is excruciating. I’ve re-primed and painted every hole by hand, so there’s no bare metal exposed, but I’d have much rather have drilled holes through paint that was going to be removed anyway. If I had fitted everything before painting it, however, the project would probably have taken even longer – if that’s even possible. #BMW#BMW2002#BMW02#2002BMW#2002fanatic#BMW02Club#BMW2002FAQ#M10b20#FourPot#FourBanger#BMWClub#Bimmer#Bimmers#Bimmerfest#BMWfans#BMWgram#UltimateDrivingMachine#UltimateKlasse#BMWClassic#Neueklasse#DriveTastefully#ProjectCar#CarProject#GarageBuilt#GarageLife#GarageWRB@will_beaumont88

Where better to start than when I first re-shelled the ‘02. This was the first 1602 I bought, but I rebuilt a 2-litre engine on twin 40 Delortos (otherwise pretty standard) for it and refreshed the suspension with new bushes, @bilsteinuk dampers and lowering springs. All this went into the new, early, round-rear-light shell (the same car that’s now blue) along with a 5-speed gearbox and a Gripper LSD when the 1602 got too rotten – if you zoom in you can probably see the flakey sills. #BMW#BMW2002#BMW02#2002BMW#2002fanatic#BMW02Club#BMW2002FAQ#M10b20#FourPot#FourBanger#BMWClub#Bimmer#Bimmers#Bimmerfest#BMWfans#BMWgram#UltimateDrivingMachine#UltimateKlasse#BMWClassic#Neueklasse#DriveTastefully#ProjectCar#CarProject#GarageBuilt#GarageLife#GarageWRB@will_beaumont88
