Door Pinch Welt Pictures?


Recommended Posts

I am trying to install the gray pinch welt (windlace) on my door. I have the original pinch welts, which are still in good shape. I purchased my 2002A new in 1974.


The length of what the door pinch welt piece should be and pictures of where the pinch welt for the door starts and ends would be appreciated.


Mine doesn't seem long enough to cover what I believe it should cover as described below. My door pinch welts are 67" long which ends about 13" above the dashboard and about 33" short of the front of the door threshold plate. Maybe I cut the pinch welt years ago when I removed them.


From the bends in the pinch welt, I am guessing that the pinch welt starts at the rear of the threshold plate, up the B pillar, across the top of the door frame, down the A pillar and down below the dashboard to meet the front of the door threshold plate. 


Is this correct?

Pinch welt goes up the A pillar across and over the B pillar  and continues over the rear side window. A piece of the welt is cut out to allow it to go over the B pillar pinch welt and vinyl trim. So the B pillar welt will be a short piece around a metre or so long.

And the shorter bit for the B pillar o the 1/4 window side      3 pieces per side        The long one that goes from the A pillar back to the rear bend of the 1/4 window starts about 2-3 in in on the sills before the bend going upwards with the trim        same with the frt B pillar trim


Thanks, Rick

Thank you.  I now know what I need. 


All I have to do is find it, which is about a 72" gray piece of used pinch welt that goes from the front of the door threshold plate up the A pillar and along the roof to the B pillar. I already have completed the rear wing windows, so I don't need the full piece with the cutout to go over the B pillar.


I would prefer used to match what I have already have in place.

Thank you. I looked at edge trim at McMaster-Carr, but it is only white or black. I am looking for the original gray color to match the pieces I already have.

    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
