I've got aluminum sheet door panels now and I've been thinking of covering them with vinyl. I think some sewfoam on the back of the vinyl. I can form the aluminum to what ever I need for design. I've also been thinkig of using snaps to mount the panels. I need access to the inside of the doors for maintenance.

I already have insulation wrapped and sealed in plastic. This "bag" is temporarily glued to the back of the aluminum. pretty effective anti noise deadner.

Never use shaved doors handles.!!!!! locked myself out again the rain.

I just finished molding fiberglass arm rests. I plane on covering these with vinyl too. It will take a 2 piece covering to wrap around without wrinkles. these will be mounted from the backside of the aluminum.

My doors are glass and very light weight compared to steel car doors.
