There is more than one way to skin a Cat-I use a regular Body Hammer, but they make a Hammer specifically to do this-anyway, I will start at one end of the 'Skin, and start the edge folding with the Hammer, backing it with either a rubber Dolley, or a rubber Trowel so that I don't mar the outer skin, slowly working the edge over the inner Door Panel-take it slow, fold a little at a time, and work your way around the Door-you don't want to try to fold it all over in one place, just work your way around the Door-
