The aluminum bars or round stock are generally tapped and have studs installed that go through holes in the panels and held in place with nuts.

Brian, Dan's advice is right-on. The PVC is far superior to the waterproof board. Every aspect of it is better including the price. You should be able to buy it close to home from anyone who sells to the sign industry.

DanTwoLakes The thin chrome is original chrome from the original door panels. It is attached with prongs that go through holes in the panel and are bend down to hold it in place.

draggin95niss On those door panels where do u get the thin chrome trim and hiws it attatched?

DanTwoLakes This stuff is soft, like polyurethane foam you'd use in seat cushions. You could not make door panels with it. PVC foamboard is not expensive, you could easily make 4 door panels with a 4'by 8' sheet at about $7.50 a door panel. That's half of what waterproof panel cardboard sells for.

This stuff cuts with regular woodworking tools. When you drill holes, use spade bits or Forstner bits. You can sew through it with no problem. It is completely waterproof, unlike "waterproof" panel board. It costs about $30 for a sheet, and is well worth it.
