Here you go: CLICK HERE This shows a custom door panel, not a copy of the original, but the principles are the same.

If you are doing a budget build this article should help:http://www.cadvision.com/blanchas/54...oorpanels.html I did this with my '54 Ford and it set me back a total of $125 for all four panels.

Except Masonite is about the worst thing you can use for door panels because it is intended for indoor use. Masonite, even the oil impregnated type which is far more expensive, does not hold up to moisture. When exposed to moisture, Masonite will become rubbery and fail. Masonite is also brittle, especially at 1/8" thickness. If you try to take your door panels off for any reason, you can break the panel board and end up doing it over. There are many far better things to use for door panel boards. The two best products are PVC foamboard and waterproof panel board. Neither one of these is any more expensive than Masonite.

Also, the aerosol glue that was used may hold up for a while, but I guarantee it will fail as soon as the car sits out in the sun a couple times. If you are gluing anything in a car interior, you need to use high heat resistant top and trim adhesive, which actually gets stronger as time goes by. A gallon of quality top and trim adhesive Like DAP costs about $30, and together with a $20 siphon feed spray gun, costs less than the $52 spent on spray cans and will do 3 or four sets of door panels, or more.
