  • Door panels

    Doors are now black and panels obviously changed too...

    Still on the look out for a carpet and set of seats and seatbelts to complete my work!

    Tell me what you think

        ain't those plastic rivets a BITCH??? that's the hardest part, is getting the fabric panels off. they use these plastic rivets, which they then melt into place, so you have to cut/break/pry/drill them out to remove the fabric section from the rest of the door. then you have to figure out how to re-attach them... which i'm curious about. i used liquid nails because i'm lazy. what'd you do?

          OK I have my door panels off and the did the plastic rivit thing But I am having a hard time recovering the plastic. I am atempting to cover them with marine vynle but It isn't working to well.

          What kind of material did you use?

          What adhesive did you use?

            Yea i just poked a small screw driver in the back of the holes and pryed them out...it took a while but it worked. after i recovered them i used a hot glue gon to make new "rivets" at first i didnt apply enough pressure and it looked bad, so i had to rip those out. after redoing it it looks better.

            I'm not sure what kinda vinyl i used, i picked it up from a fabrics store. its fairly lightweight and flexible. i used heavy duty staples on the back to hold it in place while i used 3m adhesive spray to hold it down. i also used a hairdryer for the bends, so that i could flex the vinyl a bit easier.

                    no, you use them on the back side to hold the fabric down...you have like an inch or so hanging on the reverse side, staple it down with a staple gun to hold in place as you stretch it over the front.

                      oh it also helps to do small sections at a time. dont spray the whoel panel at once, spray sections, apply pressure, let it dry, and move onto a new section. each section should only be like 2-3 inches in width.

                        ahh. But wouldn't the staples poke back through the plastic and into the fabric?

                          mind didnt, the plastic was just thick enough and the staples just short enough
