1976 BMW 2002 Ceylon

Rediscovery

Classic Velocity

Crawling over this car to look for more flaws is an exercise in rediscovering the plusses and minuses of the 2002. This car was originally Pastelblau, a kind of medium non-metallic blue. Not my favorite color for the 02, but this car needs paint, and the immediate question is whether to go back to original. This car is to be a driver, and so I am leaning toward keeping the Ceylon color that the car now wears. in the good news department, the only spot needing rust treatment is a small area in the trunk around the gas tank. Every place else is actually ok. I set the timing cold, and the car seemed to smoke even more upon start, but then it began to taper off. Once I get the carb dialed in, I will see where we are on the smoke department. Every gear feels like neutral, but I think that has more to do with the shift linkage than the gearbox. We shall see. The car still wears all of its smog garbage, with several hoses blocked off or unattached. There are also no lights, so this car wont be going anywhere soon...
