IT IS ASTOUNDING SOMETIMES WHAT PEOPLE WILL MASK WHEN THEY COULD REMOVE IT IN HALF THE TIME !

OUR 2002A WAS MASKED AROUND THE GRILLS ! THEY GOT

OVERSPRAY ON THEM AND IN SOME PLACES NOT ON THE CAR .

FOUR SCREWS AND A WINGNUT GETS 'EM OFF SO YOU CAN MASK & PAINT PROPERLY .

I am plaining to paint my 528e soon, and I thought, if I get it painted I am going to remove as much trim, glass, mirrors, grills, lights, bumpers, etc.

I even thought of going ahead and fixing the dents, etc myself.

That way, I dont have to worry about overspray.

Just a thought,

but I told them dont paint inside the trunk or engine bay and they did, and all my redone harness all wasted. Took hours to get the engine harness.

...I got it in 2001.

I've since cleaned things like the door, hood and trunk latches, the windshield wiper mounting posts and nuts and other assorted things that must've gotten in the way of the painter.

BTW, the car was last painted in 1984, so all of that overspray protected a lot of things from the elements for nearly twenty years. So despite the many hours I spent cleaning it off, it was actually "a good thing."

some touch, and now again last month to fix a small hit. So I have 3 stages of over spray, even in the gas tank, and then they tried to cover it up by spraying more shit on it.

use tinfoil. Works like a charm and easy to remove once you're finished. My local body shop never heard of that 'till I told 'em (learned it from my auto body instructor years ago)--now they use it! Doesn't hurt to mask stuff off before you take your car in for paint, either. You'll do a much more careful job.

is with laquer thinner and 000 or 0000 steelwool. Usually takes almost no pressure to do the trick, which is good. Obviously, this won't work on everything, but it does work on lots of areas.

obsessive-compulsive perfectionist, you'll get overspray on anything that's still bolted to the car, no matter what you ask for. The only sure remedy is to remove it or mask it in advance.

    BMW Neue Klasse - a birth of a Sports Sedan

    Unveiling of the Neue Klasse Unveiled in 1961, BMW 1500 sedan was a revolutionary concept at the outset of the '60s. No tail fins or chrome fountains. Instead, what you got was understated and elegant, in a modern sense, exciting to drive as nearly any sports car, and yet still comfortable for four.   The elegant little sedan was an instant sensation. In the 1500, BMW not only found the long-term solution to its dire business straits but, more importantly, created an entirely new

    History of the BMW 2002 and the 02 Series

    In 1966, BMW was practically unknown in the US unless you were a touring motorcycle enthusiast or had seen an Isetta given away on a quiz show.  BMW’s sales in the US that year were just 1253 cars.  Then BMW 1600-2 came to America’s shores, tripling US sales to 4564 the following year, boosted by favorable articles in the Buff Books. Car and Driver called it “the best $2500 sedan anywhere.”  Road & Track’s road test was equally enthusiastic.  Then, BMW took a cue from American manufacturers,

    The BMW 2002 Production Run

    BMW 02 series are like the original Volkswagen Beetles in one way (besides both being German classic cars)—throughout their long production, they all essentially look alike—at least to the uninitiated:  small, boxy, rear-wheel drive, two-door sedan.  Aficionados know better.   Not only were there three other body styles—none, unfortunately, exported to the US—but there were some significant visual and mechanical changes over their eleven-year production run.   I’ve extracted t
