Project 2002Tii: Xmas Xtravaganza

Florida isn't a bad place for car work during the winter months.
The trunk seal is temporarily taped down while the glue dries.
We found these fog light brackets on 2002faq.com that utilize some pre-drilled holes in the car's nose.
The rear fog looks right.
Our chrome Hella 160s.
An E30 M3 starter helps us take about 7 pounds off the nose.
Some Coco Mats really set off the interior well.

We spent some of our time over the holidays in the garage, getting a lot of little tasks done while we wait for some engine internals.

We installed a new trunk seal from Bavarian Autosport and continued our progress on getting the doors and windows to line up correctly.

A set of beautiful Coco Mats in black with natural spots are the perfect period-correct highlight to our car’s interior. They’re made nearby in South Carolina and are a must for any restoration.

We’re working on the addition of front and rear fog lights. The fronts are chrome-housing Hella 160s, while the rear is also an older NOS Hella fog with a chrome housing. Both are available from Susquehanna Motorsports (www.rallylights.com) and are another perfect complement to this build.

Finally, even though we added a few (three?) pounds of lights, we are taking some off in the form of a lightweight starter from an M3. It weighs about 10 pounds instead of the stocker’s 17.
