I need suggestions for my door panels


Guest Anonymous

I currently have no door or rear panels. I have looked around a little bit and it seems that a full set of good black panels is not going to be that easy to find. If, in the case I cannot find any, has anyone done anything custom on your own? My friend wants to do brushed aluminium panels to match the center consol we are sort of putting together. Anyway, that looks like it is going to be pretty expensive, almost as much as the one set of panels I found for sale. Does anyone have any suggestions for a custom job or a place to look for panels for sale.

Thanks,

Emery

Hey ToddO, if they are fairly sweet after you're done, you should consider making more maybe and selling them. I know I'd be interested (i don't have the tools or expertise to do that sorta work). just a thought.

I'll be cutting brushed aluminum panels for my '68 today. If you have the ability to do the work yourself it is actually pretty cheap. I bought a sheet of aluminum, traced my cardboard templates on to it, and then sheared them out. Today I hope to use and air nibbler to trim them to fit.

A total of six pieces will cover my interior:

Each door

Each rear panel

One piece covering the seat bottom area

One piece covering the hat rack which will then bend and go down to cover the rear seat back.

I plan to post pics when it's all done.

I would think that aluminum door and side panels would be noisy because the normal cardboard and vinyl ones probably insulate a lot of noise and cold.

It would look good in a track car, though.

minimal I think. The most difficult piece will be the one covering the hat rack and seat back (with three bends). My dad does all the sales for a machine shop so I have the means to get it done right.

We'll see.

panels for my '76. Once I get them I'll have a set of black door panels available for free if you're interested. You would only need to pay shipping. The downside is that I'm in Puerto Rico and I don't have the rear black panels. The panels minor torns on the bottom. The rear cardboard should be replaced with perhaps another type of material. If you're still interested, I can take some pictures and email them to you.

Just let me know.

    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
