Impeccable Timing

This build couldn't come at a better time.
My latest project is a '74 Polaris Silver BMW 2002 identical (except euro spec and RHD) to your project. You have at least one intrigued follower!!

Great shots of the bare chassis on a recent visit to Coupeking. Overall, the Clarion Builds 02 looks to be in pretty decent shape. A couple of new or replacement body panels need to be fitted and the front panel needs some attention but paint prep has begun!







The Clarion Builds 02 is in good company

Not a bad shop to view some amazing BMWs and resto work! Looking forward to spending more time there as the Clarion Builds project progresses.

The 02 is going through final body work and then paint very soon!

I'm looking forward to the engine rebuild, I'm in the process of trying to get my 76 2002 running again after redoing the head, my Haynes manual lies and I'm having a great deal of trouble getting every thing back in time and finding TDC so the thing will start! I'm trying to avoid putting my tail between my legs and towing it down to the mechanic. It's been a humbling experience!

Update :: Off to Body Prep & Paint - Diamond Hills Collision

Thanks for following the build everyone! The Clarion Builds 02 recently took a trip from CoupeKing to Diamond Hills Collision Center in Walnut, CA for body prep and eventually, fresh paint.

Check out this quick video of the 02 as it travels from CoupeKing to the body shop followed by pictures as the team at Diamond Hills attack the roof panel first. Share any questions or comments you have by replying to this thread!

Clarion Builds 02 Hits the Track with Forsberg Piloting!

It's not too often that a completely restored vehicle is pressed into action on a race track with a Formula Drift Champion behind the wheel but that's just what went down recently at a Southern California road course. The Clarion Builds 2002 isn't a static show car at all, even though it's pristine from the ground up.

To celebrate the completion of this inaugural build, the team at Clarion hosted a fun day of demonstrations and ride-alongs with Chris Forsberg in the gorgeous 02! Enjoy the pictures!
