door panels


Recommended Posts

A friend has soggy door panels and I recall that someone used to sell wooden panels. Anyone know where my bud can get some?


Joshua, whose door panels are not perfect, but good enough...

now: '72 Inka 2000 touring, '82 Alpina C1 2.3  & '92 M5T (daily driver)

before: a lot of old BMWs (some nice, some not so much), a few air-cooled 911s and even a water-cooled Cayman S

I have some plain black custom ones that Shad hooked me up with last year that are nice, but heavy. He gave to me for free to use or use as a template and I never ended up using them. So if you want, I'll pay it forward. I was able to do some repair on my originals. Email me if interested.

If the first guy who posted isn't interested (he asked first) I'd be interested in your panels. I'm in Austin, TX 78751. What would a rough total be?



Or you can just email me....



I have the new boards and new skins unmounted. You need to use your door hardware. Two pairs: one is black the other beige, all German vinyl, heat sealed with the mylar strip, just like the factory. Skins cost extra. I was asking $50 for the boards only. Will sell boards+skins for $175 total. They are for models 74 up. It is a steal at this price, ask BMW for each if you know what I mean.

As much as I love the offer, I realized door panels probably aren't my priority right now seeing as I have other stuff to do on my car at the moment. Once I get around to them, I'll look around again, and maybe you'll have another set, but for now sorry, its not in my budget or best interest.

Good luck selling though,

NE1 ever come up with a source for std. staples w/ 1/8" legs? Sure would make the job easier.

Amen to that. The SMALLEST stapler I found was the Swingline Tot 50. Uses #10 staples...or a 3/16 leg. It's REAL close. When I did my map pockets on the back of my seat...it just makes it with out poking through on the other side. Maybe a couple layers of masking tape...or THIN foam tape would help it from poking through. Another option is to carefully cut them down with scissors or snips. I tried it with scissors and it worked...thin staples. Don't tell my wife I did that. :-)

I think I used the same 3/16" staple when I installed Varco's door panel kit.

Although the staples are slightly longer than desired, I didn't have any problems as long as I didn't "slam" the staples into the panel.

    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
