Dualloc tape

Has anyone used, or have an opinion about using "Dualloc" tapes to hold door panels,etc in place? RodDoors seems to recommend this stuff and offers 30 pieces for $12+shipping. I have found a site on the internet which features 3M
"Dual Lock" tape at $6.80 per yard with no shipping. The catch is a $25 minimum order. It also appears that there are two grades, GPA for indoor and VHB for indoor /outdoor. I'd expect one would want the i/o grade which is the price I mentioned-the indoor is $1.40 less. It also comes 1" and 2" wide, but I suspect 1" would be fine for most applications.

So have anyone used this stuff or have interest in splitting an order?

DO NOT USE DUALOC TO FASTEN YOUR DOOR PANELS TO YOUR CAR, or any other big panel for that matter. It is an absolute joke that they expect that stuff to hold a door panel on, especially if you have a door pull on your door panel. The dualoc velcro holds well, its the adhesive backing that doesnt hold well. Once again, trust me, do not use this stuff to hold on your panels.

OK. That seems to answer that question! Other than sheet metal screws and the snap-in fasteners the OEM's use, what alternatives are there for fastening door panels, etc.?

If you want it removeable you could use those snap-buttons like the ones on your jacket, but you pop rivit them on.

Only two clips I use are

Auveco 12759

Auveco 807

Both clips can be taken on and off without messing them up.

Any Upholstery supply should have them. The clips work best under 1/8'' and 1/4'' top foam glued together

Back to the Dullac though, if the backing is what won't hold, might not you be able to place some screws through it to hold it?

They'd have to be well placed, you don't want the door behind the panel to be swiss cheese full of these screw holes, but if carefully placed I would think that might work.

Honestly, dont waste your time with the dualloc tape. The dualloc wont let you keep our panels aligned on the door, with "christmas tree" fasteners, your door panel will fit exactly like its supposed to.

The dualloc works decent for stuff you want to take on and off a bit. But when you are pulling on a door pull attached to a door panel, thats the last thing you want.

And on top of that, the dualloc will space your door panel out about 1/4". You want your panels to fit flush up against your door, you dont want a 1/4" gap.

A few door panel clips here, just some i found with a quick search

kristkustoms thanks for the link with all the door panel fasteners. Which of those would you normally use on a fiberglass door with a 1/8" masonite foam covered panel with Ultraleather over the foam? One that would not be able to be seen through the foam.

Thanks
Vince

I NEVER put just foam over the head of a "christmas tree." I always double layer my panels. We use plastic, so one layer of plastic, then pop the trees in, then another layer of plastic. It also makes for a very ridgid door panel, and there is no chance of the head of the tree showing up.

The ones we use arent on that page, they have the thinnest head available.

So, you use plastic instead of something like Masonite to build your door panels? The two layer idea is a good one, even for door panels made of 1/8" masonite. How thick is the plastic you use?

Thanks
Vince

Ok, I am no doubt missing the obvious here, but #1 How does one attach the second panel to the first one which has been anchored to the door and #2 how do you cover the exposed edge of the first panel since it has already been fastened to the door?
