Aluminum door panels

I am planning on making some more of these panels and putting them on Ebay. What would be a good price for something like this and would people like them over a bead rolled panel.

That would look great as a brushed finish flame on a polished background. Or even the other way around.

It would be a shame to cover that great work with something other than paint or a clearcoat.

I have a lot of time getting a machine set up to do it but not as much to make the panel.

Weimer, my plan is to make panels that are 24" X 48" and not put any holes in them so they can be fit to a lot of cars. I am going to put them on Ebay so someone can buy them with credit card through Pay Pal. I am going to start by making three different designs and will end up making custom sizes so they can be built into a spoiler or other panels. What are the dimensions on a S-10 door panel.

I'd be interested in some for a 69 Firebird. Are you already making them?

I just started making them and added a new pattern. If you type in aluminum door panels on ebay both should come up. Its hard to make unpainted aluminum look nice in a picture but they are nice. I am polishing both sets right now because the mill finish has some minor scratches I dont like. I decided today I will be polishing all I sell.

Man, those look SWEET! I'll be getting to the interior within the next couple weeks so I'll definitely be in touch. Polished background with a brushed flame would look trick, too.

Go to the e-bay home page and search for "aluminum door panels"

There are only 2 listings.

Niapym, here is a link to my website. I dont have but 2 designs yet but will be doing some more. A problem I have is not having access to cars panels to build a panel just for that car. I am going to talk to a guy I know at the wrecking yard and see if he will let me know as cars come in that I can make a pattern for. If someone is local to me and has a non butchered pair of doors I would custom fit and shear a pair just for that model car for $100 just to have that pattern.

Thanks
Kevin

I made a new panel for a 69-72 Nova. Hopefully my friend at the wrecking yard can hook me up with this guy that has a C10 truck to pattern. I have figured out how to get the price way down from what it was by doing this a different way. I can make them a lot faster compared to before.
