    right my dad got a 70's bmw 2002 converible targa in a while ago and said i could have it to play around with its in a pretty bad way as it stand now but is reletively solid considering its been sat in a barn

    its now been sat 3 years down the back of the yard and iv decided to do something with it in my spare time while on leave

    iv been trying to find out info on it and about parts so far i know that there was only 1960 made and the last one was made in '77

    so anyone have any info anyone know a good place for parts and if any other bmw bits are the same (brakes steering ect) and are they valuble and worth full restoration the tii versions fetch 13k+ and the turbo 20k+ but i cant even find a convertible for sale

    the main thing i may need is the hood it doesnt have one at all and the panel for the main roof part has no fabric left on it and is now rusty although it looks to be surface rust

    any help will be welcome

    there was a 2002 convertible for sale on PH a few mths back. mint condition and low milage.
    was a rare blue ish colour with low milage (sorry cant remember full details)
    was selling for £14k ish which i thought was cheap for what it was. otherwise seen them around the £19k / £20k mark.
    hth :)

    can't tell you anything about the car but if you need a new roof for it I very highly recomend these people

    they did me a brand new mohair soft top for my mx5 for £260 fitted and all other companys were quoting me £350-£450 for a vinyl one.

    I've never seen a convertible 2002, so they must be pretty rare! Have fun getting parts, but it'll be worth it IMO! You'll certainly be able to make a profit on it if you sell it on, or alternatively, have an interesting rare car. (I like 2002's with M42 engines dropped in = much fun!)

    Well from the looks of it the bits i need like boot bonnet doors all look the same as the hard top and dont look too hard to get seen some on ebay
    I have a hood the vinal is fucked but i have the frame so thanks for that number :)
    My other issue is when i do it do i restore it as a 100% origional or as was my plan before i found its true value do some subtle mods like take off the bumbers n clean the front n rear and all the chrome strips taken off retro bucketseats and decent wheels
    The engine in it is full of rust and water so i either need another the same or conversion to a later engine anyways

    Any bmw guys know how interchangeable or easy to mod to fit later bmw parts are to these? Iv never owned a bmw before so i know nothing about them

    For all BMW 2002 parts, the company to call is Jaymic Ltd.

    restore it back to original as that is what the collectors will be after.

    dont think bauer did the 2002 ....cars worth big dollar ,they always remind me of when i borrowed one in Israel and got involved in a 'fail to stop chase' at a security check point .....i got away but i dumped the car and made away on foot they recovered the car and then came and arrested me ....2 days in a Israeli slammer all cos i wanted a drive of the boss's 2002

    good luck with her
