      Jon gave me his left over fabric from doing the same to his M3, I'm not sure where he bought it? Jo-Anns fabric store or the like I would assume. I'll ask him to pipe in.

      For adhesive I just used the same satin black SEM trim paint I refinished the housings and grills in. A thick coat on the interior of the grill with immediate installation of the fabric captured and held it in place perfectly without any glue visible on the cloth or grill from the outside.

        Looks great, I got that particular fabric at hobby lobby, but I'm sure Joanne's Fabrics has something similar as well... real interested to see how your white lettering comes out it looks way too tedious and there's not enough height to the raised letters to do the roller trick

            Slightly dumb question, did the 318is have the premium sound system as an option?

              What are you going to use to paint the white lettering on?

              Speakers look good man.

                Hand painted lettering on the grills is done, its far from screen printed perfection, but it looks great from about 2' away which is as close as anyone is ever going to get so screw it...



                I finally found a carpet match for the new BMW "black" carpet pan to upholster the rear section with. The rear section in "black" went NLA and what was delivered up to that point was a different color than the main carpet pan regardless. You can see the small sliver of actual BMW carpet placed in the center for comparison. Color is spot on perfect, thickness is perfect, texture is about dead on with the new being just a little more more coarse pile wise but this is as close as humanly possible IMO, also it is UV resistant automotive grade so that is perfect.



                This is the carpet pictured:

                  Yes. I don't know what the US options were, but I have a Canadian 318is that I bought from the original owner with a weird combination of options: sunroof, no AC, Mtech 1 steering wheel, and premium sound.

                    What I am dying for is a black trunk carpet!

                    I was able to get all the black trunk panels, except the carpet. I have an aftermarket one that looks good but its not a perfect fit.

                      Original 28 year old rear carpet section and parcel tray in their dirty faded glory...



                      Rear carpet insert reupholstered in the new material.



                      Ran out of aerosol contact cement midway through the parcel tray... so that one must wait.

                          Jordan, what kind of adhesive do you use to attach the foam strips above the headlights on the grills? Permatex or Barge contact cement or something more specific?

                            Uh, I bought brand new Genuine BMW European grills, the strips are preattached.

                            Barring that I would just buy peel and stick insulation strips from Orange or Blue and install those to replace missing or decomposed strips.

                              You can buy a roll of the OEM stuff with adhesive already on it for like $20, P/N 51131916525. I have a roll of about 25 feet, and I only need enough to do 2 sets of grilles. You're welcome to the rest if you want it mike.bmw

                                It's good stuff, I used it to seal up a window unit for a friend, I to had a lot left over.
