Home made door panels

Made me some door panels. Not perfect, not for show, but good enough for me.

Bought some cheap 2 mm plastic sheets for the back side. Figured they can stand more rain and wet the the standard brown ones. The fabric is bycast leather. Cheap from Ebay. Actually quite good quality. The panel is fastened to the inner door with the extremely strong 3M velcro.

















Made surroundings for the lock lever and inner handle. 2 mm aluminum.








The Ford logo is an original sticker made to be a grille logo on some small Ford personal car.

This whole interior was very ingenious on your part. I think you did a great job with all of it.

Thanks!
What dissapoionts me a little is the folding marks - the long stripes you see on the bycast leather. If the guy I bought it from had rolled the pieces instead of folding them, it wouldn't have been so many stripes.

On the other hand, real leather would probably had some kind of marks too. I guess this is one of the things I just have to live with when I buy cheap fabric. And they are actually not that noticeable in real life. The camrea blitz makes them extra visible.

I think that justs gives the door panel character. If you hadn't mentioned it, I'd have thought it was planned. Try warming up the bycast with a hair dryer and see if it helps.
