Hey, Al Canuk, how many sq. ft. of sound deadening stuff do

Do the whole car? I'm going to do behind the door panels and backseat panels, under the back seat and under the head liner. And, of course, under the carpet. I thought I might just ask if you have the figures handy. Otherwise its the tape measure and the calculator. (and I made a C in geometry so I probably still won't get it right)

I don't know. I'll be finding out soon enough though, as I plan to paste the inside of my car with B-Quiet Extreme in the not too distant future. A customer used it in his 62 Bug, and was floored by how well it worked.

Perhaps Keith knows how much you will need? He just soundproofed Stella recently. www.my2002tii.com

try foil backed foam HV/AC air duct insulation. I was in the shop at Carolina Rodders in Greenville, SC recently (super cherry auto restoration outfit)and they were using the stuff to insulate the entire passenger cabin of several very top notch resto. cars in their shop (a $75m!!! '32 Ford coupe resto. w/ LT1 drive, a back-to-original '71 VW Bug, a sweet '69 Chevy Camero to name a few; there were plenty of others). If you decide to try this, be sure to get the foil backed FOAM insulation, not the foil backed plastic bubble wrap type stuff. Carolina Rodders was using approx. 1/8" thick foam off of a 5 ft. wide roll. Silver foil side up, foam side down, attached with "Liquid Nail" adhesive. It comes in diff. thicknesses and in diff. width rolls. Its light and a whole lot less expensive than Fat Mat, DynaMat, etc. Because it is not as dense as the Fat Mat type materials it probably will not be quite as effective as a sound deadener. But light weight and CHEAP works for me. If its good enough to put in a $75m '32 coupe restoration, its good enough for an '02 restoration on a "slightly" smaller budget...I plan on trying it.

    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
