Day 48: Dismantling

Made the fateful decision back on on 18 Nov (48 days ago) to take the 2002 off the road and start the restoration that had to happen.

  • Ugly

Activity so far has been about taking as much off the car as possible in an orderly manner. Aim is to get the body shell all set for an overhaul, some new panels and some new paint.

Rear suspension is off, working to remove the rear subframe. Interior is just about stripped, lots of tidying of the under dash wiring loom needs to be done.

Very aware that lots of these projects get off the ground only to falter, leaving nothing more than a collection of boxed parts.

Wish me luck.

BMW Sprints at Eastern Creek


Some photos from Round 3 of the 2009 BMW Drivers Club NSW Supersprint at Eastern Creek that took place yesterday. Very impressed with the way these events (and the BMW club) are organised. Yesterday’s round was also a round of the EPCC, so there were a quite few different makes out on the track to keep things interesting.

I had much better luck taking photos than on previous attempts, though still not 100% impressed with the sharpness of my long lens, will definitely like to invest in some better gear (lenses) in the not too distant future. Played around in Aperture much more than I normally would when putting these shots together, amazing how an average shot can be resurrected with a little bit of of a tweak here and there. Hope you like them.

Please drop me an email if you’d like copies of any of these shots.
