  1. Thanks guys, I’m hoping to track down a metal one since I have an earlier car! I guess I’ll go plastic if all else fails
  2. I’m looking for the metal washer that goes behind the window crank. Pictures and parts diagram attached for reference. Thanks!
  3. I found that the trick is to over wrap the trim and tamp it down before trimming. It lets you get nice ends. I’ll definitely be doing this on my cars door panels.
  4. I bought mine on Amazon: https://www.amazon.com/dp/B072Q2GFSK?ref=ppx_pop_mob_ap_share Depending on your tendency toward perfectionism, you could probably have a professional do your panels.
  5. I’m I’ve read a few posts about ways to restore the interior chrome door trim. Most involve aluminum tape or Mylar tape. I’ve had bad luck with both of these (adhesion is poor, not easy to apply) so I decided to try chrome vinyl car wrap. I have no experience with car wrapping but it turned out ok on a spare door panel. With some practice and prep work (cleaning, removing the old Mylar coating, and sanding the surface smooth), I think the car wrap would look very good. The wrap material is very forgiving and stretches around corners and bends. I bought mine on amazon and used a plastic spudger stick (for electronics) to apply it. I spent maybe 5 minutes prepping the surface and the imperfections in the old Mylar tape can be seen through the wrap. Anyways, if you have bad door trim, this might be the solution for you.
  6. I’m looking for some straight, dent free hub caps that I can recondition. I’m looking for the style that was common after 1969/1970.
  7. I just recently got a speaker grill, but thank you!
  8. Sorry about that, I was tearing down my seats this weekend and noticed that those parts were basically shattered and not repairable. To to make it worth your while, I’d buy both complete seat hinges just Incase I need other parts if you’d like.
  9. Yeah! I guess they are more of a dust cover?
  10. Actually that cover is from a 69 car, but it’s not the outside covers that you’re showing. The cover is on the inside of the seat. Attached are are pictures for reference. My car has the chrome hinges.
  11. I’m looking for a set of intact inner seat hinge covers. These go on cars from the late 60s to mid 70s. Mine are a little worse for wear and I’m looking for a set without cracks etc to rebuild my seats. Picture attached for reference
  12. I’ve seen a few so I’m hoping they’re not unobtainable. Last month there was one on eBay for $100 and I missed out on buying it ☹️
  13. Here is the style I’m looking for, it has chrome trim
  14. I’m looking for a speaker grill and mounting hardware for a short center console. I would buy the whole console if needed.
  15. I’m looking for a 1600/2002 choke cable assembly (includes the knob and associated parts to attach the cable to the steering wheel shroud). I’m looking for the early style (mid-late 60s). Picture is attached for reference. Thanks!
  16. I’m looking for Klippan front seat belts. I’ll take parts or a complete set. Klippan seat belts had the chrome steel loop on the center tunnel that the claw-type latch clipped to.
  17. I think I have the sheet metal sorted out, thank you
  18. Shawn Piper

    seats

    Do you have the levers that let these slide back and forth?
  19. I’m looking for the sheet metal that contains the flange/opening where the parking brake attaches. If anyone has it, please let me know!
  20. On my round tail lights, the reflector connects to the trim ring / lens with knurled plastic nuts. However, I’ve seen a few tail lights for sale that have a white plastic tube instead (see attached pic). Is this a different tail light style or are they assembled wrong? Thanks
  21. Hey Mike, My car was Charmonix originally. Thanks! From BMW: The BMW 2002 US VIN 1666597 was manufactured on June 19th, 1969 and delivered on June 27th, 1969 to the BMW importer Hoffman Motors Corp. in New York City. The original colour was Chamonix, paint code 085.
