Wheel wells painted body color?


Recommended Posts

Yup, the early cars were all body color under there.

US dealers may have undercoated, but BMW AG did not.

There was a rubberized coating applied to the inner fenders,

on later 12- fuse roundies but it

was put on before the paint.



My 73Tii is getting a paint job and was thinking about painting the wheels wells the same as body color. Do you know if this applied for the year 73's mfg. in 72? thanks
