bright bits


Recommended Posts

Hello, I'm putting back a 1970 2002 Riviera.  No rust and new paint! I'd like all new bright bits... belt line trim, mirrors, handles, bumpers, etc.  Where is the best and affordable place to shop for them all?  (Shipped to New England).  I usually use Wallothnesch and have been quite satisfied but want to know if there's another vendor in the States?

Lots of sources for trim parts, BluntTech, RogersTii, MVP, Maximillian, FAQ Classifieds, 2002AD, etc.  Vendor info is in the FAQ

If I was doing waistline trim on that paint job, I would look into the adhesive strips, super cheap and nice results.

Definitely. When I put my trim on the paint was so thick the clips would not go in and on some of the holes I had to drill the paint out to fit the clip!😭

for some of the trim pieces I used the dealer, drip moldings and any long curved pieces. Once shipping is calculated from independent suppliers the dealer was cheaper. If the part was damaged, there is no hassle getting a replacement.

Good point about damaged trim. I live in Toronto, Canada and ordered a set of new belt line trim for my hood from BluntTech. The first set shipped by UPS arrived damaged. The second set shipped by USPS arrived damaged. The third set shipped by UPS arrived intact. While BluntTech was great about shipping out replacements at no charge, I got stuck paying the tax and brokerage on each shipment. Which meant it cost me an extra $180.00. In hindsight, I should've just ordered them locally from my local dealer. 

 

It should be noted, the third set didn't fit half as well as my original set. They were nice and tight to the corners of the hood. The new ones, not so much. It was a bitch to get them even this close.

Thanks everyone. I'm definitely going with the adhesive belt line trim on this one. I've seen it on other cars and it looked great. Forgot that was an option but it's perfect for this build as it's a solid driver.

You certainly won't have to worry about that stuff getting damaged in shipping. 😉

    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
