    a project

    Well my first thread in bimmerforums

    i started it because this week i have a meal with a bimmerforums user, who said that is the best forum. Also i want to know that i'm not as crazy that i think with you opinions

    well this is my 635csi '79, when i bought in 2009


    here in the first day at home



    this was good days ... only a car and a driver ...

    then we started the "project", first the engine... the original engine has a crack in the block....


    the car waiting for the engine...

    i started the "curse" of searching for an engine (m90), really hard to find one. I do the search across all spain, and across the internet.
    I had help from bpoliakoff of bigcoupe.com (i supose is here also). He said to me to contact to wokke (in germany), and then across he, we found this.


    continuing with the bad luck, when we open the "new" engine, we found this in the cilinder head

    with the help of wokke we solution this issue... and we continue with the engine






    5-speed getrag





    ... it will continue ...

    Here is were the things go crazy








    this is the actual car-status, we a finishing and preparing the car for paint. I hope in setember the car will be ready to mount all the parts

    We will paint the car with inka-colour, like this

    screws, nuts, and more from the rear-axle




    more new parts:



    the gas pedal (the original was broken by me dismounting it )

    Wow! Welcome to the forum, that's a very very nice project you got there! I'm going to follow this one for sure.

    What did you do to fix the broken head? And are those new or refurbished pistons? Are you going to run the original L-Jetronic fuel injections system, or are you going to use something newer?

    Good luck with the rest of the project!

    i miss the greetings

    thanks to Jordi from m-traccio (http://www.mtraccio.com), i hope we can make some bmw2002 in a future . i learn a lot with you . If you are in spain, and want to make a "real" restauration is the place to go

    thanks wokke for the precious-help with the project and the lastweek meal (i hope i can go to see you in germany when i have the car finished, and some money to spend in nürburgring also)

    With the broken head, wokke make some "magic" with it. It's repaired.
    By now the engine will use the original l-jectronic injection system. But we have talk to put 3-carburators (webbers)... maybe in a future

    This is great! Very impressive work. I'm going to start working on my 635 soon, this gives hope that it can be done
    You are lucky to have so little rust, hehe!
    Keep up the good work and pictureflow!

    Awesome thread, and welcome to the forum! I love threads like this, and I'm very excited to see that you're planning on painting the car inka. Love that color, and that Jagermeister car is probably my favorite group racer that I've seen.

    thanks for the welcome to all

    the car will be inka color (all the body), the roll-bar, baquets, arnesses and all other parts, in black. Only the engine-bloc is red (the master says it gains 5hp with that )

    the backets are this (already at home):


    i doubt in the sterring wheel ... from this one (momo prototipo)


    or alpina one

    I'm curious as to how an E9 color would look on an E24:



    But it might turn out pretty awesome, I look forward to seeing it.

    Alpina for sure, it's the best looking wheel I can think of.

    Moises, welcome to the world's best BMW forum and thanks again for a wonderful evening.
    I'm convinced that together with Jordi's help you'll have a great racer in the near future. Just make sure B. doesn't drive you nuts And if you need any help in whatever way : you know how to reach me.
    Looking forward to a race weekend on the Nürburgring. Jägermeister 635CSi vs. wokke M635CSi

    Cheers
    Wolf

    P.S. YES, Bert is of course on this forum as well.

    Are you looking to preserve as much of the door as possible? I've seen a few local race-prepped cars that have only the out door skin in the car. Granted, they also have some extra bars inside the door to beef it up.

    Observation: Maybe it's the fact that the door is off the car, but the forward roll bar looks a little further back than what I've seen on some cars in person. Seems like this might hit your knees while you are driving. Just curious!

    Thanks for the interest Alex, yes we are looking for a "real" door

    For the forward roll there a reason, we don't want to cut the original dash board of the car, this is the maximum position without cut, also i'm quite short , is no problem with the knees
