Somehow I just knew that pic in my project journal was going to get some attention...LOL

There's actually a story behind that (no pun intended)... You can see the door panels are not OEM VW, well I custom made those and needed a neat looking door pull, well I found some TP roll holders that fit in with the scheme and so they went on. Well, when I told my buddy about it we got a good laugh out of it and then decided to put a roll on it and take the pic. Then we really had a laugh!

Actually, the mag was a joke cuz we were going to send the pic in to VWTrends to see if we could get it in the mag, but they shut the mag down, so we never got to it.

Man!! What did you eat?!?! That thing had to hurt on the way out!! ......oh wait a sec....Thats your car!! jk


Sweet looking door panels, I love those. Im looking to do something like that myself. Did you just cut out the shapes in MDF and cover them with material and lay them on top of each other? Also I never thought of the toilet paper things for door pulls, great idea!

Yeah kind-of, I used the stone textured paint on them. But yes, I just cut out a flat square piece of 1/8" and then the three flame pieces out of 1/4". I painted them and then glued the first two pieces down. the third piece was screwed on to get access to the door speaker. I finished them off with the VW emblem speaker grilles made from 1/8".

I think they turned out pretty well, but the MDF is a little heavier than I would like. I may try to use these ones as a mold and make a set from plastic or something.
