door panels on 28 ford roadster

having trouble making some for the car.
do you trace inside of door and cut them out, if i do this they are to tight to open and close.

also how would i do the sides from doors back and the across the horse collar around back

i plan on using 1/8 hard board but that adds more problems as i can not staple to it what glue would i use been using this stuff called 77 adhesive thanks any help would be welcome oh using pre pleated black vinyl

Do not use 1/8" hardboard, you need something flexible like 1/8" (3MM) thick PVC foamboard. Brand names are Komatex, Sintra, CelTec, and Palight. You can get them from a sheet plastic supplier or a sign shop. This is also called expanded PVC or closed cell PVC. The door panels should be slightly less than the perimeter of the door. If that still gives you trouble, make them smaller. Do not use 3M 77 or 74 aerosol glue, it does not work. You need HHR (high heat resistant) top and trim contact adhesive. As far as what to do with the area behind the doors and seat, you will have to post a picture so I can see what we're talking about.

If you are going to do this yourself, I highly recommend buying and watching the Sid Chavers upholstery DVD's. They are an excellent introduction to the exact things you are asking about.

I live in Wisconsin, and I can find it lots of places. Here's just one place: Badger Plastic & Supply, Inc. (Plover, Wisconsin). Go to your local sign shop, they will have it or can get it.

As far as the glue goes, here is a place on line: Performance Hi-Temp Trim Spray Adhesive Performance is a good glue, even if it is an aerosol, and the proice is reasonable.
