Thank you I can finally access the link to see the photos - great work. I am out of the states - California to be precise and wish I knew someone with your abilities here. I have a 78 320i automatic and it has some rust that needs to be worked on but most bodyshops here just throw a bunch of bondo on the vehicle only for the rust to return down the line. Thanks again for the opportunity to see the job done proper.

Hiya, well yeah sadly that's how we know US restorations but surely there must be some fanatic out there? How about these guys in the larger LA area, they know their 02's and E21's! http://www.2002ad.com/

Not bad! I see you're going for the shifter lock as well, I installed it in my E21 as well.

Yes,it's pretty rare "original zübehör" and fit nice behind new 5-speed Getrag 240...
