I had to re-create my door panel tops with fiberglass due to the hot sun baking the old ones. I used cloth first and it was too flimsy so I added 1708 glass. This is rough cut still more trimming to do

Interesting. This is to cover the top vinyl portion of the door panel ?

No this is to replace the old tops that are crumbling. I am pretty much creating new door panels and using the original armrests. More then likely I will use after market speaker covers because I had to Dremel off the fasteners to remove the old covers. No map pockets or carpet for the bottoms. It’s time consuming however after rebuilding my boat floor this was a piece of cake

And so now I’ve earned my heater core replacement badge. What a PITA. Wasn’t too bad though, I’ve had worse parts to replace on Huey’s and Blackhawks however I Wasn’t 61 years old back then. The kicker is that it’s already been changed but they didn’t wipe down the old rust stains trailing down the fire wall
