sill molding


Recommended Posts

Having a brain fart here today. I have the narrow gray sill molding ( not the wide black or the other narrow black )    and I can't remember which way it goes on, screws on the outer part of the sill or does it go the other way around and the screws are on the carpet side?        And is there a rubber seal that goes between the door and the molding?


Sorry can't do any pictures today


Thanks, Rick

I cleaned it up so its more visible, there's like a half round rubber seal that runs the length of the sill.The sill plate retains it, kind of pigeon holes into the lower ends of the door frame seal.

Thanks, shouda, couda taken pictures but!!!     The piece is , of course , NLA.    Is it 1/2 round or 1/4 round?    Found some 1/4 round sponge hollow seal from Steele Rubber products ( peel and stick, have used some of their peel and stick before and it does stick )    It is 1/2" X 1/2" so it will fit and being hollow and sponge rubber, there should be some give to it.   Also, being hollow, I could tie in the new door seal ends with that tab tucking nicely into the hollow section     Only thing is that they want 50 bucks ( US ) for 10 ft     with shipping and currency exchange, it will be about 100 Canadian  , a little high for a chance it might not work    BUT, I guess if BMW still made the seals, they would be over 100 bucks    WTH     I will order some


Thanks again for the pictures, Rick

    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
