custom door panels

Hey guys, heres my concept design of what i want to make for my car. They match the seats, dash, and i will have to get a headliner custom made to match. anyways, what do you think?

I have a few quick and easy questions. I searched in the knowledge base and couldnt find the info i was looking for. What type of fabric would work best and be cheapest. They should match the colors that i have selected pretty close. also, when it comes to overlapping the colors, what should i do?

Thanks!

Alex

Gonna keep it short because im tired...

Id rethink the design so the design of the rear panel flows into the front panel so its one nice fluid design. Maybe its a matter of opinion, but when it done nicely it makes the door jamb cracks almost disappear, something like this [IMG][/IMG] The way its drawn now looks like it will abrubtly change between the too. As far as overlapping the colors, think about layering the panel with separate pieces and fastening them together. Im going to bed...

I have to agree. It's looks so much better when looking into a car and the front flows through to the rear. Here's what I did for my car:

I believe your other problem is it is way to busy. Simplify it and follow the earlier post. Your color selection is not to bad and you have to look at the rest of the interior to see how it will all work together. Just one old mans opinion.

Thanks for the reply's. I will redesign them and get repost the new one.

So far, the nova has a red dash with red trim. I bought black and gray buckets, with a little red and blue mixed in the gray. I recently found out that the 65 nova's dash panel was welded to the body, so i will have to keep the red dash. I think i will eventually customize the headliner, and get the rear bench re-upholsered to match the front.

I agree on flowing the designs.
as for material, From personal experiance i have used: suede, alcantara leather and a stragith up fiberglass painted finish.
STAY AWAY from alcantara on areas with too much curvature + it's expensive. If i were you i woul go suede. Looks good, kind of in expensive and will make the car very exotic looking.

Ah, very nice redo, much easier on the eye and it looks purty dang good, also like how you applied what Krist and Neo said to flow it into the rear panel. Looks like you got a lot of work though before you start thinking about the panels but that's just my gay opinion so whatever works for you and gl with it all .
