SOT tar and gravel...


Recommended Posts

Today they re-surfaced our asphalt road (7/10 mile development) with the tar and gravel deal. Oh boy. Question is this; I've seen the temporary plastic stuff on new cars, and wondering about a source of something to use on rockers, and fender/quarters until the stuff settles in/cools off. I'll probably use some wide painters tape until I can find something. I know you can buy clear stuff at Auto Zone, etc but I'm looking for a somewhat temporary film that wont leave goop after a month or so. Yes, Delia, et.al., I should have bought some mud flaps, but I also have a coupe and a 325, so I need something for the fleet. Ideas? Dave V. in NC

I have used a 3M product called peel coat with a low tack adhesive...the stuff you peel off appliance and such. I use it to seal the cockpit of my kayaks when I am not using them as it keeps rain and critter out. You can buy the stuff in various widths, I have 4 foot wide rolls.

    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
