Cadillac Door Panels?

I'd really like to place the velour on the door panels of this car. I think SMS carries the material. How difficult would it be to do ?

I put it on the wrong thread before. The area hightlighted in yellow is faded on top.

Not easy, but doable. The arm rest area should come off pretty easily once the panel is off the door. Then you should be able to duplicate what was done originally.

Would the new material first be sewn and then glued to the panel ?

I would assume so, but you'll have to find that out when you take the door panel apart.

If I remeber right from working on these cars years ago the door panels are held on with plastic clips and then when off the car the arm rests screw on from the back side.

So I went the SEM way. Although i couldnt get an exact match, the Napa Red came out great. I called SEMA and was told that the Color Coat was only available in pre made colors and couldnt be mixed to an exact match. The way i look at it is this - its a flower car which was customized already. I just added my own touch to it. The fading is gone now and it looks great. Although, the fabric is a little stiffer and rougher now.
