Need Knee Trim End Cap


2002#3

Recommended Posts

Anyone have an extra black end cap for the passenger-side knee trim (rear cap, if it makes a difference) ('74 tii, if it makes a difference).  See photo for lonely knee trim which misses its end cap.

It's not available separately, but it is a separate piece.  I was able to get one from a member here by placing a Want to Buy thread in the classified section.  Contact cement now holds it in place.

If you aren't a stickler for originality this is something that could easily be 3d printed.

 

Who's going to be our 3-D printed parts supplier?  Anyone?

 

I had a tii verboten screw cap printed and have the .STL file.

 

I can think of at least one other part that people would buy: early bumper bracket hole covers, for those who like to go bumperless.

Superb work!  I started with a simple post and the result is a 3D printed part!  Very impressive initiative and effort.  I guess I am on the hook to buy a couple of these suckers when they're done.  Will display them proudly on my car.  Glad to do so.

Done. Looks close enough to the original for me. Has a tab to lock it under the knee trim clip. No finish work was done on this thing so a light sanding and a swipe of acetone would make it pretty much indistinguishable from its counterpart.

A few folks have expressed an interest and I have sold a few so far. Mostly I needed one myself so I went for it. The current ABS version looks great but i think a TPU version would work better long term.

FYI I used to sell stainless trim fasteners to the community (~12 years ago) until life got hectic with a house, career, young kids etc. The kids are older and the house is remodeled so I am not disinclined to selling these or other items if there is demand.

    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
