The material you are using on the door panel is too thick and not pliable. You have a couple of options if you want to use it. 1. You can avoid the creases altogether and have a smooth surface, or make the crease a little wider so the material can be pressed in the crease. 2. Use a material like cloth or suede that will press into the crease easier. Use a good adhesive (I use 3M) that dries quickly and use plenty on both sides of the crease and material. I used a plastic knife looking tool to press the material into the crease, then I've also used one of those tools to install screen rope. Don't buy the ones with the metal wheels, get the plastic one. The metal will cut into the material.
