Door panel ideas for 34 Ford

I need some design ideas for door panels for my 34 3 window Ford. I finally got around to moving up my suicide door locks so that means I need new door panels. I would like to go with a design that does not require sewing. I have gotten pretty adept at sculpting foam. I also plan on having some elastic type pockets ate the front bottom of each door for storage. I will have those fabricated by a local shop though. Also I will add a small arm rest to incorporate a door pull. Some pictures would be great if anyone has them.

Vince

The one I did in the trunk of my 34 had a panel that was re-moveable..
And the floor I added alum bar to the one that was going on the floor of the trunk so things wouldn't hurt the interior..

The pockets are very do-able at home. The only sewing required was the one straight stitch across the top.

Thanks Mr.Dan for the kind words... Sad thing is.. I fell on some hard times way back when I bought my sewwing machine and had to sell it to pay some bill's and had to give up for now on pushing forward with the custom interiors..

But maybe one day I'll get another one to give it another try... How know's.. I was getting better at the sewwing part,,

But there is so much to learn and learnning without watching someone for a week or two make's it a little harder to learn the little trick's...I was enjoying it, that's for sure..

I've been haunting the interweb for ideas too. I've also got to pull the pin soon. ebay is a great place to see detail shots.

Here are 5 of my favs. Not '34s but very easy and adaptable.
