Can Not Source Wurth Adhesive For Sun Roof Seal?


Recommended Posts

Following Bo Black's Tii Restoration, he highly recommend that for the sunroof seal.  After looking around locally as well as Automotive Paint Supply, they don't carry it. I tried calling Wurth, and when they found out I was not a distributor or service provider, they would not sell it to me?

 

So...

Does anyone has some I can borrow (shades of Grey Poupon)?  I will pay for shipping.

 

Is there another source who is more friendly to provide?

 

Is there another product just as good that I can use that you would recommend?

 

Thanks in advance!!

I've always use plain old Weldwood contact cement (solvent-based, not water based).  3M also makes a trim adhesive that's essentially the same thing, AKA Gorilla Snot.  It will outlast the seal itself, and has been holding my sunroof seals in place for 20 or so years...

Exactly what I was going to say.

The Wurth rubber cement seems to have slipped down in adhesive quality since Keith Kreeger recommended it during his tii restoration. It hasn't worked for me well at all on my 69.  The Weldwood contact cement works much better. Follow the directions and let the parts tack up before pressing together.

    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
