Original Carpet heel pad for a roundie


Mike Self

Recommended Posts

Pulled up the coco mat in my '69 to vacuum the carpet underneath and discovered the original heel pad on my original carpet had hardened and shattered into little pieces.  Interestingly, the shattered portion is directly under the brake pedal--all that heel-and-toeing has taken its toll.   And amazingly the carpet (55 years old) has outlasted the heel pad!

Anyone out there have a ragged old carpet with a good (that is it's still flexible) heel pad that they're willing to cut out and send me?  I think they're all the same color (medium grey).  I have a basement full of 2002 bits 'n pieces, so if there's something you seek, I may be able to help.  Trying to keep Wolfgang as original as possible 😁.  PM me if you can help.

 

Cheers and TIA

Hey Mike, its interesting that none of the 2002 carpet makers have this same style of heel pad on their new carpet sets. They all seem to put a lot of effort into having the new carpet sets as close to the originals but non of the heel pads I have seen replicate  the original. I did have to buy a new S&P carpet set for my 69, but was hoping to find a heel pad that is a little closer to the original than the one that came on mine. I still have the original heel piece but its broken like yours. Good luck with the search!

This is what I have out of ‘70 Sahara, light separation on upper right, still

flexible. HIMG_8157.thumb.jpeg.649a105d220c69a3df18a30d02fcfcb4.jpegowever, I have a ‘68 Chamonix, that the driver’s carpet has a hole with a good heel pad. If you have an original carpet with a damage heel pad for the ‘68,  I will trade with the heel pad from the Sahara. Any possibilities. The two top pictures are from the Sahara, the lower two are from the chamonix. Thanks

    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
